We’re now halfway through Stage 3 of the Call of Duty League, with the Paris Home Series seeing some big games and some shock results.

The Stage 2 Major saw a changing of the guard, with Toronto Ultra beating a seemingly-invincible Atlanta FaZe side, and the Canadian franchise have continued to dominate throughout Stage 3.

On the other side of the standings, London managed to beat New York Subliners and even took Atlanta to a game five.

So, let’s take a look at our Team of the Week for Stage 3, Week 1, with the Paris Legion Home Series.

Toronto continue to be the best team in the world, and that’s thanks largely to their absolutely dominant assault rifle duo of Cameron ‘Cammy’ McKilligan and Jamie ‘Insight’ Craven.

Meanwhile, Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson proved his doubters wrong and proved he’s still one of the best in the world. With two ARs and two SMGs, here’s how we came up with our Team of the Week picks.

MVP: Cameron ‘Cammy’ McKilligan (Toronto Ultra)

Toronto Ultra seems to be a revolving door for MVP candidates, and this week it was time for Cammy to step up.

He recorded a 1.34 KD against Minnesota ROKKR, and a dominant 1.47 against Los Angeles Guerillas, barely putting a foot wrong throughout. Of course, his supporting cast is incredible, but Cammy continues to prove that he’s one of the best in his position.

Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson (Atlanta FaZe)

Arcitys has had a rough go of things in recent weeks. With Atlanta FaZe no longer the dominant team they were just a couple of months ago, a lot of criticism fell onto his shoulders.

He took it all in his stride and proved in Atlanta’s matches against London and LA Thieves that he’s no slouch. Despite both matches being tight 3-2 wins, he recorded a 1.21 KD and 1.42 KD respectively.

Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro

Dallas dropping Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland appeared to many to be a sign that their SMG power would weaken significantly, but 2020 CDL MVP Shotzzy is clearly more than happy to step up when needed.

Dallas were taken to a game five by LA Guerrillas and, were it not for Shotzzy’s 1.18 KD and spot-on plays in the tighter maps, the result could have been completely different. Without him, the Empire could have been in a considerably worse position.

Alex ‘Zaptius’ Bonilla (London Royal Ravens)

London beat New York Subliners and nearly even got the better of Atlanta FaZe. Their potential looks completely different with Zaptius on the roster, and even though he’s not putting up insane numbers, he’s clearly having a positive impact on the team.

He performed well against the Subliners, including being instrumental in their wins in the third and fifth map, key to securing the overall series win against a top team. Once this squad finds their groove, Zap could be key to moving them up the standings.

Of course, there’s one glaring omission from our Team of the Week, and that’s LA Thieves’ Kenneth ‘Kenny’ Williams. He has switched to the main AR role in light of Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat leaving and completely changed the team around. He’s been one of the best players of Stage 3 and, were there a third AR spot, he would be an instant lock.

So, that’s our Team of the Week for the second weekend of action in Stage 3. Toronto Ultra continue to dominate, and we might finally be seeing a turnaround for London Royal Ravens.

Now, we’re wondering when we’ll next have a TOTW without a Toronto Ultra player making an appearance. Can any team overtake them at this point?
