Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (abbreviated as COD: MW3) is a 2011 first-person shooter developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, and published by Activision. It is the third installment in the Modern Warfare saga, a direct sequel to 2009's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and the eighth Call of Duty installment.

Competitive Call of Duty had their first million-dollar cash prize tournament with Call of Duty XP before the game launched, but lacking the tools necessary to run LAN events properly and poor overall support from the developers, there were few opportunities for professional Call of Duty players to compete. Major League Gaming, the biggest console gaming league in North America, decided not to add the game to the pro circuit, and many of the best Call of Duty players decided to take the year off. Europe had a much bigger presence in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, albeit still a smaller scale than that of its predecessor. The European Gaming League hosted several tournaments for the game, with a handful of American teams competing.
