The first Call of Duty League London homestand gave European challenger teams the chance to prove their worth as they battled it out for a split of the $10,000 prize pool and some ranking points. Here’s how they fared.

As eight of the best Call of Duty League teams battled it out to be crowned CDL London Champions, with the Chicago Huntsmen coming out on top, the challenger teams grinded away at the same time.

Though they may not have gotten the love of the main stage crowd, or viewed by fans worldwide on a stream, the tightly-contested bracket saw some teams build on their trip to Minnesota for CDL Launch Weekend and others make their debut at the Copper Box Arena in London.

Teams from across Europe had players representing the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Denmark, and others, as notable teams like Team Singularity, Team WaR, and TrainHard Esports traded blows.

In the end, it was Singularity who managed to come out on top – winning back-to-back challenger events. The first-seeded team took down Team TWI, DarkPanda, Elitist, and the Royal Ravens academy squad on their way to the championship bracket. 

Once there, they finally dropped their first map of the event to TrainHard. They regained though, grabbing a 3-1 semi-final victory before completing the sweep over TrainHard in the grand finals – defeating them with a clean 3-0 scoreline.

While the top 24 were handed ranking points, only the top three teams walked away with a cash prize – with the London Royal Ravens Academy squad toppling Team WaR to finish in third. 

The final standings of all 33 competing teams can be found below this article, with each team having their respective prize pool split and ranking points rewards noted.

Just like the Call of Duty League proper, the focus of the challenger teams will have to switch to Atlanta on February 22, where there will be $25,000 up for grabs. 

Will Team Singularity be able to continue their early dominance in Atlanta? Or will another squad rise up and make a name for themselves? Only time will tell.
