Week 3 Recap

Day 1 – Friday, February 18

The match of the day was between OpTic Texas and Toronto Ultra, and it delivered in an unusual way. Shotzzy, broke a Gentlemen’s Agreement which sparked the entire community into a debate. Even though Ultra used the forbidden attachment, OpTic still picked up a 3-0 sweep.

In earlier matches, the LA Thieves embarrassed the Paris Legion, who fell to 0-5 on the stage and will start in the Loser’s Bracket. FaZe continued their dominance with a sweep over ROKKR, who have now lost three straight since their opening win.

Day 2 – Saturday, February 19

Florida Mutineers pulled off one of the biggest upsets so far this season as the squad swept Surge to hand them their first loss of the year. The LA Thieves showed up strong with a 3-1 win to hand Ultra their second loss of the week.

Also, the New York Subliners finally got on the board with a win over Boston Breach in Game 5. And the Minnesota ROKKR showed their ice once again with a 90 point comeback on the fourth map and a convincing win on the final search.

Day 3 – Sunday, February 20

In the final day of the qualifiers, a lot was on the line in terms of seeding. OpTic Texas took down Breach 3-1, but that map win was enough to lock Boston into the upper bracket. London also picked up a huge win over surge to finish second in groups. FaZe also remained perfect with a dominating win over the Subliners.

The Major 1 bracket will take place two weeks after the conclusion of Week 3 of Major 1 qualifiers. You can view the bracket below

Week 1 Recap

Week 1 of the CDL Major 1 Qualifiers was full of way more surprises than we could have predicted. London’s 2-0 start, both New York Subliners and OpTic Texas failing to win a match and Paris Legion even taking Atlanta FaZe to a Game 5.

In one of the bigger matches of the weekend, Seattle Surge managed to take down Toronto Ultra in a 5-match extravaganza, with the match being touted as a real insight into what could happen at the Major.

Our CDL power rankings definitely look different to how many would have imagined them to, and with New York Subliners already making a roster change, Week 2 could be huge in terms of seeding — and teams finding their footing in the league.

Week 2 — February 11-13

Week 2 Recap

Week 2 saw teams like Seattle, Atlanta, and Toronto extend their leads at the top, while Paris Legion, Florida Mutineers, and New York Subliners failed to get the ball rolling.

LA Guerrillas pulled off a big win over a surprisingly strong London Royal Ravens, and are hoping this spurs a resurgence for them ahead of the Major 1 bracket.

OpTic Texas finally notched up a win against Paris Legion, looking good while doing it, but they’ll need to have a perfect week 3 to secure a good seed.

The standings after the Major 1 Qualifiers will dictate seeding for the Major itself, so expect teams to be going all out to win these matches, with no opponent being taken lightly.
