their gaming experience to the next level.”

“ASUS Republic of Gamers is proud to be providing the VG245H console
gaming monitor for the CWL 2019 season, helping to deliver the best in
class console gaming experience on the world’s largest stage. Both
professional and amateur console gamers have recognized the importance
of using a monitor with minimal input lag, low response times and a
higher refresh rate as key to raising the bar for competitive gaming. We

Trading Shots weekly video segments. We’re huge fans of Black Ops 4 and
look forward to another great year of CWL competition!”

“Call of Duty esports and professional gaming are deeply rooted into our
core DNA. We first designed SCUF controllers 8 years ago to cater for
the fast action and competitive demands of Call of Duty esports, so it’s
very humbling to see how far Call of Duty esports has come and seeing
esports develop as a true industry,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO &
Founder of SCUF Gaming. “Without Call of Duty esports, we would not be
where we are so I thank everyone who has been involved in its growth,
success and another year with the Call of Duty World League.”
