Sixteen of the best Call of Duty teams from North America, Europe, and the Asian Pacific region will start their latest LAN journey in the group stages at MLG’s Atlanta Open. In previous years, professional EU/APAC teams have had to make their way through the Open Bracket if they competed in NA events, but new policies have awarded those teams spots in the Pool Play based on Pro Points.
