Since Call of Duty has been exploding over the last decade, it makes perfect sense why some players would go pro in the shooter. They can stand out from the rest of the players based on talent and skill alone. So much so that E-Sports teams began popping up all over the world in the last few years. In basketball, we have Michael Jordan, in hockey, we have Wayne Gretzky. These guys are considered two of the best players in their sport. For the Call of Duty E-Sports scene, this is identical. When sports players are good enough, they can inducted into a Hall of Fame. In Call of Duty, these are called “A-Dead-Legend”, and we’ll explain what this means below.
