In case you haven't noticed, Call of Duty is kind of a big thing in Australia. And not just sales of the game itself, but the eSports scene.

The most recent Australia & New Zealand qualifier for next year's Call of Duty World League, for instance, had 50 teams. That's a huge turnout, as you'd expect for entry into a professional division that is sporting a US$150,000 prize pool per stage.

But perhaps the biggest news of all is this: as part of the online qualifiers, one female has become the first professional Call of Duty player to qualify for the World League. She's from Perth, and her name is Kayla Squires.
