Good morning, eSportsCOD community. We'd like to take a minute to talk about the future of Call of Duty and eSports. Cool? Cool.

So begins the build-up. They go on to point out how our community has grown, referring to the growth of our very own r/codcompetitive, @CoD_Stats, and, of course, yours truly, @CoDEsportspedia.
