The start of the 2022 Call of Duty League (CDL) season is right around the corner, much to the excitement of the competitive community. Since the launch of Vanguard, teams have been hard at work getting to grips with the game in a bid to begin the season on the front foot. For the past few seasons, Control has been the third game mode alongside Hardpoint and Search & Destroy but there are still several issues affecting the mode.
Control arrived as part of Season 1 and since then, the mode has been unplayable, much to the frustration of players, and with days until the pre-season tournament begins, many are concerned about how it will play in an official tournament.
CDL Control Mode Still Broken
One issue that could cause plenty of problems during the tournament involves in-game spectators getting disconnected from the action which leads to one team being awarded the victory. CDL commentator Landon "Land0" Sanders was one of many to shine a light on the problem.
Three-time world champion and New York Subliners superstar James "Clayster" Eubanks also experienced the problem while practicing against the London Royal Ravens. With two rounds already on the board, the coaches for both teams disconnect from the game, causing the game to end unexpectedly.
Will Control Be Used In The CDL?
With so many issues still affecting Control despite Sledgehammer Games applying various fixes within the Season 1 Reloaded update, it appears that the mode isn't fit for purpose. It remains to be seen whether the mode will feature in the Kickoff Classic, especially with so many problems that could impact the event and if not addressed soon, the entire season.
