LDLC Say Goodbye to COD
While it may not be a permanent goodbye, seeing LDLC saying their farewells to a game that helped make their name famous is slightly unsettling.
LDLC have always been one of the organizations at the top of Call of Duty, but after their struggles to get hold of a good enough team, it seems like LDLC may be putting their feet up for a while.
Almost a year ago, LDLC picked up Team Spartan, and while their year wasn't completely terrible, the mixed results that the team achieved just didn't quite hit the expectations the LDLC organization had for the newer players.
To begin with, the LDLC team managed to take a win at the South Lan Event. As a result, they bagged themselves a spot at ESWC COD in Paris. The team managed to just scrape by in ESWC to get a spot in Call of Duty XP in LA.
Unfortunately though, Activision has pulled their funding for the LDLC team, and because of a lack of big prize wins and sponsorship deals in 2016, LDLC has had to pull the rug underneath their roster.
Hopefully we'll see more developments from the LDLC organization in the future, but for the time being we won't be seeing LDLC at any future Call of Duty events.
How do you feel about this news? Seeing a big organization like LDLC fail to hold on to enough sponsors to support their players in 2016 certainly isn't a good sign for the Call of Duty competitive scene in 2017. Only time will tell how things will go over the next year.
