MWEB Black Ops 2 Autumn Ladders | Some more details

We already let you know that MWEB will be kicking off their second season of Black Ops 2 Ladders, but on the eve of SA’s opportunity to shine on the biggest stage for Call of Duty (ever)*, it’s only fitting we pass along the latest information about the MWEB Autumn Ladders sent out by their PR.

The Autumn Ladders comes with two new sponsors – Razer on the Xbox 360 ladder and Mad Catz on the PS3 ladder.

The tournament has also been adjusted slightly with the points system being overhauled, the matches being played over three modes (as per the qualifiers for CoD Championship), the teams have been restricted to six members, and the tournament will finish with a Super 8 single elimination tournament to determine the prize winners.

It’s like the Beta actually did exactly what it was meant to do – allow the team to perfect the system so that SA’s ladders can compete with those seen around the rest of the world.  Now get involved.
