Open Online Qualifiers
Any player can participate in Call of Duty: Mobile’s Open Online Qualifiers, in-game events beginning April 30. When selecting finalists, individual performances are the most important factor in progress. The first ten ranked games for four weekends earn players tournament points. The number of points contestants can gather will be different based on wins and ranks. When reaching 80 points in any of the four weekends, players earn the right to advance to Stage 2.
COD: Mobile WC 2020 Finals
At this point, Activision Blizzard has not announced much information regarding Stage 2 for the COD: Mobile World Championship. The only reveal is that players must eventually form teams with one another to keep playing online matches. More information related to this phase of the tournament like rules, cash prizes, and broadcasting, will be revealed later on the official Call of Duty website. In order to ensure equality, external devices like Bluetooth controllers or wired mice are not allowed. Playing on a desktop emulator is also strictly forbidden.
Just for registering for Stage 1, players receive an in-game reward. Reaching Stage 2 every weekend also grants different rewards as well. Activision Blizzard did this to ensure players try to participate each weekend. The Call of Duty: Mobile World Championship comes at a crucial time when mobile esports continues to grow and engage fans globally.
