David Vonderhaar Replies To Angry Fans Over League Play in Cold War

Treyarch's Game Design Director David Vonderhaar has responded to outraged fans on Twitter about Cold War's controversial new League Play mode.

League Play has been the most requested feature for Cold War since the game came out. However, not all players are happy now that it has finally been added.

Fans have taken to social media to voice their disappointment over Black Ops Cold War's League Play. However, David Vonderhaar has already addressed some complaints directly.

Vonderhaar Answers League Play Questions

Many fans were totally outraged once they had given League Play a try. These are the reasons why Black Ops Players hate League Play already.

The complaints have led to many players tweeting to David Vonderhaar for answers about Treyarch's decision-making process when making league Play.

Content creator SalvationsElite asked why Treyarch didn't use an ELO system for League Play ranking. David Vonderhaar's response wasn't totally clear, but he gave "scope, accessibility, deadlines, and franchise" as some of the reasons.

Fans can also hope for further explanation in a future post from Treyarch Community Manager Josh Torres.

Is League Play Broken?

Vonderhaar also addressed some concerns fans had about their League Play rank. Many players have issues about their placement matches and what rank they have been put in.

If you haven't had a chance to play the mode yet, or still don't fully understand how it works, don't worry. Here is a simple guide on everything you need to know about League Play in Cold War.

While Vonderhaar can't guarantee that League Play is working as intended in all cases, he assures fans that they will look into checking the ranking system.

Despite some of the thorny exchanges with fans on Twitter, Vonderhaar said he is "grateful for all the inputs". However, it is not known whether Treyarch will implement any of these changes into Cold War's League Play or a future title.

Fans will hope that 2021's already-confirmed Call of Duty title will have a different League Play system.

Even if League Play was a disappointment for some players, everyone can look forward to these leaked weapons coming to Cold War and Warzone Season 2.

This isn't the only hint for the upcoming season. A new cutscene has also teased what is coming in Cold War and Warzone Season 2.

Meanwhile, Warzone players are also angry. Is cheating already back in Warzone?
