Optic Gaming Rules All at COD World League Finals

A fierce season of competition came to a close last night as OpTic Gaming won the 2017 Call of Duty World League (CWL) Championship.  The event was hosted by Major League Gaming Corp. (MLG) in partnership with Activision Publishing, and the team in green, OpTic Gaming won this year’s crown over Team EnVyUs in a thrilling final competition to determine this year’s champion as the best Call of Duty team in the world. 

The press releaase for the end of the event notes that Call of Duty esports saw a substantial rise in competition this year, with a year-over-year increase in participation of 400%. The playing field has also leveled in 2017, with nine teams capturing tournament wins around the world; including, Splyce, the first-ever European team to win a CWL event on North American soil.

Held in Orlando, Fl., the tournament featured the world’s top 32 Call of Duty teams from North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region (APAC) as they competed at the five-day event for a share of the $1.5 million championship prize pool, and the finale to this year’s CWL season which offered $4 million in total prize purse, the largest in Call of Duty history.

Here are the final top four placements after the CWL Championships:

  • 1st – OpTic Gaming
  • 2nd – Team EnVyUs
  • 3rd – Luminosity
  • 4th – Red Reserve
  • 5th/6th – FaZe Clan
  • 5th/6th – eUnited
  • 7th/8th – Ghost Gaming
  • 7th/8th – Splyce

So there you have it COD fans, another year of COD eSports has come to an end. It should be interesting to see what happens with the next COD league in 2018 as the game is set in WWII and there will none of that fancy jet pack’ing around levels.
