The next season of the MWEB Black Ops 2 Ladders are open

blackops2new

MWEB has announced the second season of their Black Ops 2 Ladders competition.  This time, it appears that the competition has moved away from being a beta and on to being a true opportunity for a continuous test of the skill of South African clans.  Better prizes, a better points system and a variety of modes are catered for.  A new ‘Super 8’ single elimination will decide the overall champs, based on a knock out featuring the – you guessed it – top eight in the ladders.

The ladders will run on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.  The Xbox 360 ladder is sponsored by Razer, while the PS3 ladder is sponsored by Mad Catz.
