In case anyone missed keeping track of events, the makers recently introduced an original map for MWII in Season 2 Reloaded. It is called the Himmelmatt Expo. Ever since it was unveiled, the map has ended up being a go-to option for many users. So is there any chance for it to arrive for the Ranked Play as well going forward?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is no. The Call of Duty League, as of now, is played on an older patch of MWII. That’s because of a kill-cam glitch that has been present in recent updates. According to Atlanta FaZe’s coach James Crowder, they can’t play a new map on an old patch.

If they update to the new patch to add it in, then they will be forced to play with the kill-cam glitch. Which is something pro players won’t like to see in competitive matches.

And since the CDL rules are reflected in Call of Duty Modern Warfare II’s Ranked Play, a new map can’t be added to its experience just yet. It also implies that those who want to see the Himmelmatt Expo in Ranked Play will have to wait for a bit longer.
