August 5th 2015, was an exciting and interesting day if you are a fan of both eSports and the Call of Duty series. During todays Gamescom press conference, Activision revealed information about their newest eSport features, "Specialist Draft" and "Ban and Protect". Both aimed at giving players more control over their playing experience.
Geared more towards the tournament and arena players, Specialist Draft is made available during the pre-match selection process. This new system adds a restriction on the number of Specialist abilities used in a match. When one player chooses an ability, they will become the only one on their team that will have access to it throughout the entire match. This will encourage teams to use a little more strategy when preparing for battle. Ban and Protect on the other hand, will be available in both private and competitive matches. Players will receive the ability to vote on which guns, perks, and scorestreaks to either ban or protect before the start of each match. This feature will give both professional and private tournament holders the power to change the way the game is played based on their own tournament guidelines. Further adding to the strategy needed to win and succeed.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is set to release on November 6th this year on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
