FaZe sweeped Rise to set up a grand final with OpTic Gaming at CWL Paris.
The fixture is a rematch of the winner bracket final, where OpTic thrashed a lethargic FaZe 3-0.
However, they looked a different team from start to finish against Rise, with enough time and freedom to taunt their opponents with in-game gestures.
Rise entered the loser bracket final off the back of consecutive wins against Splyce and Infused, extinguishing British hopes of a first major title in the CoD World League.
They lost 3-1 to FaZe in the winners semis, and there would be no resurgence or mistakes learned in a second chance to progress at their expense.
OpTic and FaZe last met in a grand final during the season 3 playoffs on Advanced Warfare, when the latter team stormed through the loser bracket and beat OpTic over two series in one of the greatest comebacks of all time. A victory today and the CWL Paris title would also require them to force a second best-of-5.
The grand finals will commence at 5:30pm CET.
