I don't hear much talk about it, but I've seen a few videos talking about how the championship series can get you an all expense trip to CODXP (that was apparently announced) and have an opportunity to play for a million dollar prize pool. That being said, the playlist is fairly dead for all the emphasis vonderhaar put on "e-sports".
What do you like/hate about it? Why do/don't you play it? The fact that the host dashboarding gives you a loss is almost reason Itself for me not to wanna get too into it.
I believe that League play is a good thing. It makes me think back to the ranked playlists from Halo 3(By the way, wasn't that supposed to be coming for Halo 4?)
If people want to play competitively, they have the option too, but if they want to have fun and just play with friends, then they can also do that. League play gives the people who like to team up with friends the opportunity to play with other people doing the same thing and people on their skill level. In my opinion, the Team Deathmatch series makes no sense, since there are no rule changes, but I really like how the Championship Series changes some things about the game to make it a more even playing field for everyone.

I like competition. There's a lot less BS involved than pubs. I don't play it as much b/c I'd love to have a team of four to actually do well consistently. And don't put the responsibility of finding consistent team mates on League play.
I get to have skill based matchmaking in a game that has skill based matchmaking anyway, and I get to have my stats affected although nothing I do actually contributes towards progression of challenges or unlocks.
So ... yeah, what's the point?
Also, LOL at the idea of "solo" rank in League play. Until there's FFA, solo rank is still just like W/L ratio - an indicator of how often you play with a team.
