Last week they played CoD in Atlanta, and this week the crème de la crème of Call of Duty esports have arrived in Paris for yet another Call of Duty World League event: ESWC’s Paris Open. A total of 96 teams from around the world will compete this weekend including the reigning champions, OpTic Gaming, and last week’s surprise champions in Atlanta, eUnited.
The event is divided into an Open Bracket that then feeds into Pool Play. The Open Bracket sees a number of highly rated North American teams in this EU-based tournament, so watching who emerges from that scrum should be interesting.
The Esports World Cup (ESWC) in Paris this weekend also features Clash of Clans, Just Dance, and League of Legends competitions.
