Activision introduced the CoD Mobile World Championship event in 2020, however this will be the first full grand finale event to take place. This is because the two previous editions were affected by the COVID-19 epidemic.
The first edition of the World Championship in 2020 was completely canceled due to the severity of the pandemic. Activision did not hold the event online because teams would experience ping issues. The $750,000 prize money was split equally among the eight eligible teams.
While this was a huge disappointment for CoD Mobile fans, Activision reinstated the world championship for the year 2021. The World Championship Finals was also expected to be a LAN event this year.
However, due to the widespread Omicron variant of COVID-19, Activision was once again unable to hold an offline event. Rather than cancel the competition entirely, the World Championship Finals were split into East and West divisions to reduce ping disparities. Twelve teams participated in each region, with a total prize pool of $2 million split evenly between East and West. Tribe Gaming from North America has emerged victorious in the West, while Blacklist Ultimate from the Philippines secured first place in the East.
Godlike Esports, who won the regional playoffs in India, will be in the spotlight at the World Championship. From 2019 to 2022, this team won all three of its regional playoff games. Tribe Gaming, the winner of last year’s World Championship West, once again qualified for the Call of Duty Mobile World Championships.
The total prize pool for the event is $1.7 million. Activision has released tickets for the event. The LAN Grand Finals will be streamed on the Call of Duty: Mobile YouTube channel.
