3 Ways To Achieve League Play Promotion Quickly

After months of waiting, League Play has finally gone live in Black Ops Cold War!

For those wanting their fix of competitive Call of Duty action, League Play features a dedicated ranking system alongside exclusive rewards to play for.

With a total of five skill divisions and 30 ranks to grind through, earning Gems can be a somewhat tedious process.

As players battle it out in a bid to be crowned champion of their respective ladder, there are some handy tips and tricks that will guarantee promotion in no time at all.

In this article, find three ways that will have you ranking up as quickly as possible.

1)     Join Forces With Other Players

Black Ops Cold War League Play Tips

Queuing up as a solo party is a sure-fire way to lose a lot of ladder points along with the possibility of scoring any Gems.

Joining forces with three other players around your skill level greatly assists your performance during a match. Playing off the strengths and weaknesses of the players in your party enables you to be a cohesive unit when attempting to overcome the opposition.

With a more cohesive team, the chances of achieving victory are much higher than playing in a team all attempting to play with their own style.

2)     The Grind Never Stops

Players are always grinding for those all-important ladder points, meaning the rankings are always changing and no place on the 50-player ladder is sacred.

With Gems awarded at the end of an Event, the battle for position never stops. Playing matches on a regular basis is essential to maintain a high ranking, and earn as many Gems as possible.

3)     Understand The Meta

The metagame in competitive in Call of Duty changes on a regular basis and it’s important to be using the best possible weapons to give yourself the best possible chance of winning those all-important gunfights.

One of the best ways to determine which weapons are part of the metagame is to check out which weapons the CDL superstars are running.

North American veteran and Chicago OpTic star Seth “Scump” Abner is often showcasing his skills on his live-stream using the best classes for competitive play. Using the same classes will certainly assist in your quest to reaching the top of the ladder.
