Call of Duty League 2022 mid-season coach and GM survey

Over the past three days, Dot Esports has surveyed over 20 Call of Duty League coaches and general managers with a pool of questions that included who they think are the best players are in the league right now, the most impressive Challenger players so far, the worst card in every game mode, and whether Berlin should be added to Control the rotation of the card set.

Shotzzy, Cellium and Dashy are obviously at the top of the poll when it comes to the best player at each position. Shotzzy was also named the best player in the game right now.

Havok was named the most impressive Challenger player so far this season. Toronto Ultra’s substitute and academy player Scrappy came in second, while KiSMET and European player Wardy came in third.

Control has been a controversial topic this season. With only two cards in the current rotation for Vanguard, players, coaches and fans have been begging for a third card option since the start of the season. Fortunately, Sledgehammer released a spawn update that included changes to Berlin Control. And judging by the results of today’s survey, the map is now completely viable for competitive gaming.

Spart left his mark on the league during Major Two in a unique way. He introduced Volk into the meta, but it did not take long before it was apparently limited via gentlemen’s agreement. So we asked coaches and general managers about their thoughts on the weapon, and over half of them agreed with the decision.

To conclude the survey, we asked how happy coaches and general managers are with how the league has been run so far this season, how Sledgehammer’s communication has been with changes in the game that affect competitive aspects of Vanguardand how they would rate Vanguard Overall.
