Win a trip to the Call of Duty Championship in Hollywood!

2 min read


Call of Duty is arguably the world’s most popular shooter; the billions of dollars it generates in sales every year is testament to that. The series hasn’t really had much impact in the eSports scene, but that’s changing, with the recently announced Million Dollar Call of Duty tournament hosted by Activision and Xbox in Los Angeles this April. And one lucky South African Call of Duty fan will be going there, to see it all go down.

Yeah, that’s right, Megarom will be sending one Call of Duty uberfan to Los Angeles next month, including flights and accommodation  – and entry to one of the largest gaming tournaments ever.  You’ll get to got to LA for the first ever international Call of Duty Championship from April 5 – 7 to see 32 of the world’s top 4-person teams – including one from South Africa –  compete in Call of Duty: Black Ops II for a share of $1 Million.

“More people play Call of Duty multiplayer every day than watch the average regular season game of the NBA. The scale and passion of the Call of Duty fan base is simply humbling, and yet there is no formal way to find out who amongst those millions of players is the best of the best, until now,” said Activision’s Eric Hirschberg of the event.

How do you enter? all you need to do is tell us why you’re the biggest Call of Duty fan in South Africa. The method of entry is up to you; Send an essay, a video, a picture or whatever you like, really, to [email protected] by 4pm SAST on Monday 18 March and it could be you. Be creative, be funny or be damned serious – just let us know why you should be the one to go. Best entry wins.

Of course, you’ll need to be over 18 and in possession of a valid south African passport. It’ll also be nice if you happen to not be a terrorist.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    And if you are NOT a fan? Can you still go to Hollywood?

  • Deon Steyn

    I’ll enter and if I win then I’d rent a car skip the tournament and drive the 5 hours to Vegas. I’d have to lie my ass of on the entry form though.

    • Deon Steyn

      I’d put on the entry form: “I like Cod it’s, the best and if you disagree shut up, because your stupid and gay”

      • Tarisma

        literally laughing, my be the office beers I have had. Brings this webcomic to mind.

        • Sir Captain Rincethis

          Hahahahahah! Thank you fine sir, I needed this after today! Also literally laughing, though no beer yet 🙁

          • Tarisma

            it kills me though, that line ‘Gay is the only adjective I know’ I still laugh every time I think about it

          • Sir Captain Rincethis

            Me too! HAHAHA! And from the last thread from an hour or two ago, when someone called my a faggot, oh, the memories!

        • Deon Steyn

          LOL You should have posted that yesterday on

          • Sir Captain Rincethis

            HAHAHAHA! Can you imagine? Was bad enough, still got blood under my fingernails…

      • Sir Captain Rincethis

        And your mom lives in your basement?

        • Deon Steyn

          I’d put anything on there for a trip to Vegas

  • Meh

    Easy. OH MY GAWD!!!!! Dude! I like play everyday! It is the ONLY game I own. That’s how I know it is the best! All I have to say is I am the biggest fan…..and if you disagree the [email protected]&k you!! Fanboi style.

  • I’m sorry, but I’m too good of a gamer to pretend that I’m a bad one. 🙁 I’m just going to have to pass this up.

    • Deon Steyn

      It’s a free trip to USA. Once there you can do what you want.

      • Do I get to see Devon?

        • Yes you do… I was actually just talking to him about you.. will try get him to say hi on video tomorrow

          • Hahahaha OK, I’m going to slowly die now. Hopefully my internet allows me to watch it… Luckily the event starts AFTER my driving lesson.

      • OVG

        Not after the ACTIVISION bounty hunters track you down

        • Deon Steyn

          Lol they’re probably like those gamers who imagine themselves untouchable in a real war because they are good at Cod. So I wouldn’t be worried.

  • Anon A Mouse
