Match 1: FaZe stomp Surge

If you blinked, you missed this one. While Seattle was able to keep things somewhat close, Atlanta’s Stage 4 undefeated streak cannot be denied — as FaZe clutched up in S&D and absolutely dominated Control to wrap things up.

Match 2: Empire rout Guerrillas in Vivid grudge match

It was the storyline of the day, but most definitely a short story. While people expected the Guerrillas to compete, Shotzzy has a new haircut, Vivid has a new team, and Dallas easily swept the latter’s former team.

Match 1: Legion upset Thieves in Temp grudge match

The LA Thieves continue to be an enigma, as the team’s replacement of Huke with TJHaLy was outright dismantled by the Legion. Despite Temp dealing with some sickness, his grudge match ended quite favorably.

Match 2: Subliners narrowly defeat Mutineers

Two of the hottest teams in the CDL faced off, but only one could come out victorious. Thanks to some heroics from New York’s Asim, the Subliners were able to ruin Florida’s Home Series debut.

Match 1: Ultra ruin Royal Ravens’ regain

It looked like the Royal Ravens were going to bounce back against the Ultra after getting routed by 112 points in Hardpoint, but Toronto simply clutched up. This makes it zero map losses since losing to Florida last week.

Match 2: OpTic bounce back and smoke Legion

After OpTic got swept by FaZe 0-3 last week, the team needed to regain fast. And they did so against Paris, withstanding some pressure and proceeding to lock in and dominate the series.

Match 3: ROKKR survive early scare from Surge

Seattle’s losing streak gets pushed to 11 as they simply couldn’t clutch up against a hungry ROKKR squad. With MajorManiak hitting three-pieces and Standy outright frying, Minnesota secured a clean W.

Match 1: Mutineers bounce back vs Guerrillas

After narrowly falling to the Subliners on Day 2, the Mutineers viciously bounced back into form against the Guerrillas. Banking on S&D and Hardpoint prowess, Florida dropped the reeling LAG.

Match 2: FaZe absolutely dismantle Thieves

Scary stuff when the Tiny Terrors are in form. While the entire FaZe squad put in work against LA, including a team 2.7 K/D in S&D — it was Simp who tore the Thieves apart to cap off the sweep.

Match 3: Mack leads Subliners to clutch win

What a wild series to end the week. On the back of two 40-bombs from Mack, New York survived an upsurging Dallas squad and clutched things out in S&D to win the tightest, juiciest revenge match of the year.
