Call of Duty League Delays Some Matches in Texas Due to Weather, Power Issues
The Call of Duty League has decided to delay some of this weekend’s matches due to internet and power outages affecting southern states such as Texas due to the severe weather that has recently hit the area. Freezing temperatures in cities such as Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio, has caused millions to go without power and water in the state where infrastructure of the power and water lines have been disrupted. Sources close to the league have told The Esports Observer that matches will most likely be scheduled for the following week.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced esports events, tournaments, and leagues to play matches online from remote locations in order to help stop the spread of the disease. And while some teams do play from a central location such as a team facility or house, problems have arisen even in the best of circumstances.
The CDL’s Dallas Empire, champions of last year’s inaugural season, and some other CDL teams do in fact play their matches from the Dallas area which has been hit hard by the winter storms.
This is a developing story.
