Totally agree, I really liked league play, having a history of playing competitive ladders I enjoy the buzz of the competition.
They really need to address the quit outs though it really ruins the experience, tougher sanctions need to be brought against quitters, as 5 min probations will not solve the problem.
Another issue is there are not that many players that participate, look through nearly any lobby on Black Ops, the player badges do not show a league rank ( mine shows #1 ) Maybe greater rewards need to be given to encourage people in.
I'm not sure if IW will include Leagues but I would like to see them in Ghosts. That's all I want copied from Black Ops2, the rest is pretty awful.
I agree also. Dont worry, Ghosts has already confirmed its support for competetive. Were good there. As for League play I also hope it comes back. They do need some changes though. They need to create an incentive to play league play. Like maybe have tournies with rewards or if you get high enough on a ladder or even win a tourney you get a special outfit to personalize your character, gun camos, MSP points, money, or anything really that will drive more players to come and try out league play. The biggest point I make is that they dont make the ranking system based off of how many matches you play. It should be based off of who you beat. You should get more points if you beat a better team and less points if you beat a worse team. It also should not be noob-friendly. It should be challenging to move up the ladder. Now its so easy to get masters.
Your idea on rewards throughout matches/ tournies were my thoughts exactly!

Now that you mention this they can actually impliment both: amount of matches and a point system. The reason Treyarch's "rank-up" system is done by how many matches you play is because the game is usually going to match you up with people it thinks are around your skill level(I could be wrong). BUT, what if a new system worked where if a player were on a win streak, the game would match them up with more difficult opponents and if the player beat this harder competition, they'd recieve a payout of more points after each win. The amount of points increases as long as the player continues on their win-streak! So pretty much win-streak bonus points.
