Though the history of esports is shorter than that of traditional sports, its growth has been explosive. League of Legends went from a basement project to facilitating a live esports tournament that sold out the Staple’s Center (now the Crypto.com Arena), the same place as many music and sporting events like the NBA finals, in just a few years' time.

The rising prize pools have reflected the growth in the popularity of esports, and one of the best ways to earn potentially millions from your blood, sweat, and controller crud is still through Call of Duty, one of the most OG games around.

To see if you have what it takes (other than the skills to fend off all the sweaties) you need to make sure you meet the eligibility requirements to participate in online COD tournaments. While different tournaments have different requirements, here’s the essential info you need to compete in the upcoming Call of Duty League Resurgence (CDLR).

How to Enter Upcoming COD Tournaments

You must:

  • Be over the age of 18
  • Reside and compete in North America
  • Be at least Prestige Rank 1
  • Able to stream your gameplay on Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook
  • Register your team on GameBattles by the registration deadline (October 1 at 8 PM PST)

If you meet each of the above requirements, congrats! You will most likely meet the rest of the eligibility requirements, so long as you haven’t done anything nefarious. If you're still unsure, take a look at the official document encompassing all the rules that competitors need to know.

Be Careful of Your Gamertag!

Don’t lose the opportunity to win the big bucks by having an inappropriate player tag. Some examples of what may be unacceptable are names that include the following:

  • Offensive or obscene gestures
  • Profanity (this applies to languages outside of English too!)
  • Identifiers such as sponsors or commercial products

If you passed all the requirements, then get out there, and good luck! And be sure to use Buff to maximize your experience along the way.
