In the exhilarating world of Call of Duty, where bullets fly and adrenaline soars, the demand for change is in the air. The Call of Duty League and its dedicated fans are clamoring for a new addition to the ranked play map rotation, and it seems they have set their sights on a beloved map from Modern Warfare 3.
While the iconic maps of MW2 are hailed as some of the greatest in Call of Duty history, they don't quite deliver the same thrill in the modern movement system. As a result, some players haven't been able to relish them as much as they once did. Terminal, a long-standing favorite among the community, is now being criticized for its "campy" nature, prompting even the most skilled pros and devoted fans to call for its removal.
However, there's a conundrum for competitive players. They already operate within a limited map pool, and removing Terminal would further restrict their options. But fear not, for change is on the horizon. Enter Rio, one of the 6v6 maps introduced in Modern Warfare 3's Season 1 Reloaded update. Although it hasn't received much attention from the pros until now, the break between Major splits has allowed them to explore the new patch, experience different spawns, and test out Rio.
The Carolina Royal Ravens coach, Brian 'Saintt' Baroska, boldly proposed replacing Terminal with Rio in the map pool. His player, Isaiah 'Gwinn' Gwinn, enthusiastically described Rio as "a bang out." The excitement surrounding Rio's potential inclusion in the rotation continued to grow as the Royal Ravens players themselves discussed its addition.
Curiosity piqued, they inquired about which map would be sacrificed to make way for Rio. To their delight, the answer was none. Rio would simply be added to the lineup, injecting a fresh burst of energy into the competitive scene. However, it's important to note that nothing is set in stone just yet. The official confirmation from the Call of Duty League or the developers at Treyarch is still pending. We eagerly await their decision, as it could reshape the game at the pro level when the Major 2 qualifiers kick off on February 16.
The winds of change are blowing through the Call of Duty community, stirring up a desire for something new and exciting. The players and fans have spoken, yearning for the thrill of Rio and a revitalized map rotation. While we anxiously await the final verdict, let us cherish the passion and dedication that drives the Call of Duty League, a world where legends are made and battles are fought with unwavering spirit.
