The previous record of 93 minutes today was broken by a production delay in the Call of Duty League 2022 Championship match between the New York Subliners and OpTic Texas. After OpTic Texas took a 2-0 lead, the series ended.
This was not the first Champs delay, but it was the longest. The Call of Duty League had a delay time record of 93 minutes, but the most recent delay went well above that mark, at 117 minutes.
Many people tweeted their frustrations while others took to Instagram to relive the event's production, although it isn't clear what exactly caused the delay, but the issue appeared to be related to audio, rather than servers being down, which was the main reason for the previous delay at the Champs. CDL caster Alan Bricetacular Brice attempted to keep fans updated on what was happening.
I think there's some old school icing going on.
Brice stated that his icing remark was not serious, claiming that the fact that people still dont get it is a joke since many users were blaming players for actually putting a stop to the tournament. Many fans called out the CDL directly for the massive production stop while indicating that there are other solutions.
In the midst of the OpTic and Subliners matches, the CDL returned from where they left off. Despite the delay, OpTic Texas came out with the win to close out the series 3-0.
