Call of Duty star Cammy: “Whatever happens at Champs, I’m proud of my team”

Back in April, Cameron ‘Cammy’ McKilligan, a professional Call of Duty player from Scotland, was reprimanded by his organisation, Toronto Ultra, for writing the word ‘c**t’ in a tweet. To the surprise of British folks the world over, what to many Scotsmen and women is standard vernacular was taken to mean something far worse than was likely intended. “We’re building an inclusive culture,” Toronto Ultra said in a statement. “Our players and staff have the responsibility to meet those standards and live out the values of our organisation.” Cammy, the Scot, had to undergo ‘sensitivity training’ for using the word…

Should the Timed Kill Race format be scrapped from Warzone tournaments? Debate ensues after UK players win Toronto Ultra’s $100,000 Canada Cup

Top Call of Duty players – including some from the UK – have called for a boycott of the Timed Kill Race (TKR) format in future Warzone tournaments. This format sees teams play in their own lobbies against random players, as they try to rack up as many kills as they can within a certain time window. What should be a test between players of similar skill levels descends into a sub-game of ‘who can get the best lobbies with the easiest players in’, so that the tournament participants can improve their KDA (kill/death/assist) ratios.
