The Call of Duty League All-Stars have been revealed, with the upcoming All-Star Weekend on May 22 – 23. After announcing the new format for the All-Star Weekend in early May, the all-stars have been decided on. Sixteen players will represent their teams, with at least one player from each team playing this weekend.

Final sixteen All-Stars
With the reveal of this year’s Call of Duty All-Stars, this weekend brings more opportunity to celebrate each team’s best players. The best teams have multiple representatives, while other teams only have one.
There were some interesting choices, such as the New York Subliners having just one all-star despite being amongst the best teams in the league. This also applies to the Dallas Empire, who are in a similar situation. One of the most unexpected picks is Anthony “Methodz” Zinni, who hasn’t played with the Ultra since the first Major of 2021.
Other choices are pretty straightforward, however, like Jamie “Insight” Craven for the Toronto Ultra and Cuyler “Huke” Garland for the LA Thieves. In addition, McArthur “Cellium” Jovel wasn’t invited, despite winning the 2020 all-star 1v1 gunfights.
In the end, teams from the LA Guerillas to the Minnesota ROKKR only had one All-Star. The Subliners and Empire were the other two teams with only one All-Star, despite being higher in the standings than Optic Chicago and the LA Thieves.
However, some teams must miss out on sending two players to this event due to the sixteen player limit. All of these individuals are amongst the best COD players in the world. This weekend, they will compete in two different game modes.
The prize pool for this event has yet to be announced. However, last year’s event had a $100,000 prize pool. No matter what, teams will be striving to win to represent their team in the best way possible from May 22 – 23.
