Esports: Weekly preview - Call of Duty League returns

Last week it was all about the Counter Strike: Global Offensive BLAST Premier Fall Finals.

The major CS:GO event concluded with Danish side Heroic taking the title on home soil, making amends for their defeat in the Grand Final of the recent IEM Rio Major.

And while the dust settles on that tournament, there are a handful of events in the world of CS:GO taking place this week from Germany's ESL Meisterschaft to the Global Offensive Champions Europe, which is into season two and begins with the double-elimination playoffs this week.

At the end of the week, meanwhile, the Call of Duty League returns with the qualifiers for the first Major in Raleigh in the USA.
