Zombies World Championship 2 Is Happening This August
Now here is an eSports championship that I can get behind! Last year Matt “Mcsportzhawk” Cobuzio who is a popular YouTuber was a co-founder of the first Call Of Duty Zombies world championship. It was a fun event that clearly had a lot of love put into it and for a first time event offered an impressive 20 grand prize pool.
Unfortunately, there was a last minute venue change and more than a few technical hiccups showed that this was a first time event. Still, it was fun and thanks to the popularity of Zombies in Call Of Duty we are getting a second event.
This time the event is being held in Orange County California at the eSports Arena. The production behind this year’s event is said to be much better. To be fair though those hiccups last year were probably down to the last minute venue change. As well as a proper eSports venue they also have a big time sponsor, Elgato Gaming. The prize pool has also been bumped up to 30 grand. In all this has all the makings for a really fun and intense event.
Last year all kinds of Zombies records were set so you can bet people will be trying again this year. The finalists will be a mixture of YouTube and Twitch streamers who play against regular joes who are classed as the online finalists. On the 3rd of August, the YouTube and Twitch streamers will play in a kind of semifinal to see who will get to play the online finalist in the finals on the 5th of August.
If you love Zombies this is well worth taking a closer look at. I think this is going to be a lot of fun and not too pretentious like some other eSports events have started to become.
