Twitter: 100 Thieves100 Thieves overcame a shaky start to qualify for the Pro League.

This left some of World War II’s biggest names outside of the qualification spots, with one of the most significant names to not qualify being FaZe Clan. The North American team were eliminated from the qualifier by French squad Overtime Esports in the second round of the tournament’s losers bracket.

The roster, that contains all-stars like Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner, Dillon ‘Attach’ Price and Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto were understandably disappointed in their performance, and marks the first time that the historic organization won’t take part in a CWL Pro League season.

FaZe’s inability to qualify comes as a shock considering how highly hyped they were coming into Black Ops 4 on the back of some success in World War II. In fact, out of all the players that failed to qualify for the Pro League, nobody made more than the core FaZe members who represented the organization last season.

The four FaZe stars earned a cool $94,500 in World War II. They were closely followed by Martin ‘Chino’ Chino and Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni who earnt $71,000 and $54,375, respectively.

Of course, for players who missed out on qualifying for the Pro League, there is still a chance that they will compete in the league, as teams will now begin to search for substitutes who can fill in for their squad when needed.
