If you're a Call of Duty warrior - or a football fan - you may want to buy one of the last remaining Thursday tickets for Emerald City Comicon. Why? Because you might get to play Seattle Seahawks stars Bobby Wagner and Richard Sherman in the ECCC Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Open.
6 players will win a spot on their teams in the championship round. To get there, you'll first need to reserve your spot for the qualifiers. Sign-ups open on 8 March. The actual qualifiers happen on Thursday, 7 April from 2-4 pm (and will be livestreamed on one of the ECCC channels, so don't be camera shy.) From there the 6 chosen players will participate in the championship round from 4:30 - 5:00 pm with Sherman and Wagner.
As Comic Con stories go, that should be a pretty classic one to dine out on. I know a lot of gamers say Call of Duty requires no real skill but I'm guessing many of you will be furiously practicing anyhow throughout March. Good luck.
