Away from the mammoth media attention that LoL and CS:GO attracts, the final week of April saw some much warranted focus on our smaller titles with the lens homing in on our Call of Duty team.
Touching down in Columbus last week, Tommey and co. faced a tough task at the CWL Global Pro League, having to navigate a stacked Blue Group to make it through to the playoff bracket in May. FaZe Clan, Evil Geniuses and Rise Nation have earned their own success in the last year, with five top 3 finishes between them this season. The class showed as well.
We played a close series in our first matchup, with FaZe first edging us on an incredibly tight Hardpoint - one that we’d wrenched ourselves back from the brink on only to be pipped at the post. A 3-1 score maybe flattered our opponents, but it didn’t stop us from going hard in our next match. We took down EG, 3-0 and the boys made it look easy closing out on Friday night - their Uplink play on point in round 2.
