Infinity Ward gives Ghosts an eSports Update



Infinity Ward has detailed multiple new improvements to better its eSports features, with multiple updates and hot fixes coming over the next few weeks, as players get set for the Call of Duty: Ghosts (CoD: Ghosts) Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) Summer Leg due to start in a few weeks time.

The studio said this week, “As a guiding principle, development priority is assigned to those issues which we deem to have the largest immediate impact or those affecting the broadest group of players.”

This is certainly good news for teams hoping to enter the Telkom DGL, as Infinity Ward seems to have more interest in the eSports side of things than shown in the past, which could lead to even more improvements in the near future.

Here are the planned features:

Upcoming eSports plans:

  • Restrict Ghillie suits in competitive rules.
  • Restrict Tracker Sights in competitive rules.
  • Restrict Danger Close in competitive rules.
  • Disable third-person spectating in competitive Private Matches.
  • Add a kill feed to Broadcaster mode.
  • Address Broadcaster mode stability (squash crash bugs).
  • Future eSports plans


Rules:

  • Removal of split-screen in Private match when eSports rules are enabled.
  • Add eSports rules to Clan vs. Clan playlist.
  • Open Clan v Clan playlist to allow solo player entry & mixed clan teams.
  • Modify Dead Silence/Amplify functionality.


S&D:

  • Resolve the defuse timer animation discrepancy.
  • Modify the defuse time sound effects if the defuse process is cancelled.


Broadcaster Mode:

  • Add game action overlays where needed (flag captures, etc.).
  • Resolve the leaderboard's red death indicator delay.
  • Roll over player in scoreboard to highlight arrow in mini-map.


New Platform:
