The competition will see 32 of the world’s best teams compete head-to-head in Call of Duty: Black Ops II for the 360 during a live-streamed event.

Players who are interested in participating must register on the website for a free Call of Duty Elite account. Australian and New Zealand teams can enter the local qualifier, which is being hosted by the Australian Cyber League (ACL) on March 2-3. The series of online matches will then progress to a live final hosted in Sydney on March 15. The top two teams will go through to the Call of Duty Championship in North America, taking place from April 5-7.

Sixteen team spots will be up for grabs across Asia, Australia, and Brazil, with the remaining places made up of the top eight squads from North America’s MLG Winter Championship and the best eight teams from ESL's European Finals. For more details, check out the ACL website.
