The CMG ProDown $2500 tournament is the first professional Call of Duty Black Ops 4 tournament since CWL Las Vegas. The tourname is expected to run for two days, December 16th and 17th. Top North American teams like OpTic Gaming, FaZe Clan and eUnited are all competing for their slice of a $2,500 prize pool. The tournament is expected to start both days at 2:00 PM PST.
Although this tournament is for $2,500 most pro teams use this tournament as practice. Instead of playing the CWL 2k tournament a lot of top tier teams have chosen to play the ProDown. Pros choose the ProDown over the 2k because of the level of competition. In the MLG 2k series pro teams are forced to play multiple series against lower tier amateur teams. In the ProDown the first series starts with a professional team. Essentially, the ProDown is the last 5 or so rounds of the 2k series, without the initial “warm-up” amateur series.
