Tencent along with Activision has finally decided to kickstart Call of Duty Mobile’s Esports scene, after more than half a year has passed. The first-ever global tournament for Call of Duty Mobile is going to be named Call of Duty Mobile World Championship 2020, with a whopping one million dollars prize pool. Looks like Tencent is pretty serious about developing this title, as PUBG Mobile’s first tournament did not reach that level of prize money.

When can players register?

Due to the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, the first phases of the tournament would be online-only. The online qualifiers are going to start on April 30, with the first 10 ranked matches each weekend give you tournament points. All people who register for phase 1 of the tournament would get free goodies, so even if you don’t want to play the tournament, it is still in your best interest to do so.

The registration process would begin on April 28 – it is expected to be easy, as the registration deadline is just 2 days after it starts. After the screening process of phase 1 end on May 24, every player with 80 points or more would qualify directly to the second phase of the tournament.

What are the requirements to register?

This tournament is likely to be played in a team format

Players need to get at least Veteran rank or higher in order to participate. Besides that, they would also need to be at least 18 years old and located in an eligible region. Furthermore, players have to use an unmodified device – with no external or internal method that modifies the game’s control scheme. This means that the use of devices like Bluetooth controllers, wired controllers, or even mouse and keyboard, is forbidden unless stated otherwise by the Admins. However, this is pretty much useless, as they have no way to detect physical devices being used in an online tournament. They can detect things like Desktop Emulators, however. Those found guilty would be disqualified from this tournament and banned from all future tournaments of Call of Duty: Mobile.
