The groups for the inaugural season of the Call of Duty World League's Global Pro League were drawn today and it's time to get excited.
The Global Pro League will give out $700,000 in prize money and features representation from three regions. North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific with representation being nine, six, and one team apiece respectively.
The top team in the world currently, OpTic Gaming was placed into the green group, which is rather fitting if you are familiar with the green walls branding. They are heavily favored in that group.
Group Red is quite a bit more competitive with the likes of Team EnVyUs, Splyce, Cloud9, and Mindfreak, the first three all having various successes from the close of 2016 to present.
eUnited and Luminosity are poised to take Group Yellow although the European squads may be able to provide some upsets.
FaZe is favored in Group Blue but not as much as OpTic is in its group. Fnatic, Evil Geniuses, and Rise Nation are all capable squads looking to get their break.
