Spylce Wins Big at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 Playoffs
This past weekend, the culmination of weeks of thrilling Call of Duty World League competition concluded with Splyce, the lone European representative, capturing top honors for the first time on North American soil at the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 Playoffs. Over three days, eight of the top teams from CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 battled to determine the winner in a double elimination tournament.
After all top seeds from each group fell to the Loser Bracket following Day One of competition, it was ultimately Splyce and Luminosity battling for the lion’s share of the Global Pro League Stage 1 $700,000 prize pool.
Here are the final rankings for the CWL Stage 1 Playoffs:
- 1st – Splyce
- 2nd – Luminosity
- 3rd – FaZe Clan
- 4th – OpTic Gaming
- 5th/6th – eUnited
- 5th/6th – Enigma6
- 7th/8th – Evil Geniuses
- 7th/8th – Team EnVyUs
The top 12 teams from Stage 1 will qualify for CWL Global Pro League Stage 2, which begins June 29. Beginning June 15 and continuing through the CWL Anaheim Open (June 16 – 18), the last-place team from each group of Stage 1 will try to re-earn their spot in the CWL Global Pro League Stage 2 series via a Relegation Tournament against the top teams, based on CWL Pro Points for teams not already in the Global Pro League. One team each from APAC and Europe will join two North American teams to compete for the opportunity to play against the bottom Stage 1 teams. The top four teams from Relegation will be placed in CWL Global Pro League Stage 2. All Stage 2 teams also secure a spot in the 2017 CWL Championships, taking place in Orlando, FL., August 9 – 13.
I looks like the CWL is heating up as team jockey towards the world final.
