Florida Mutineers have done it again, winning the Paris Home Series to become the first Call of Duty League team to win three tournaments and go back-to-back so far this season.
Pure domination. That's all one can say about the Mutineers' performance in the Grand Final vs Atlanta FaZe, as they disposed of the league's top team in 3-0 fashion to win CDL Paris.
The journey to their third Home Series win was as convincing as it gets – victories against Paris Legion, Dallas Empire, New York Subliners, and FaZe sealed the deal and extended their current winning streak to a whopping eight games.
It'll be hard to argue against putting Florida at the top of the heap when it comes to the best team in the Call of Duty League; while they may not have any tournament victories on LAN, it's clear that they've now become the side to beat and could easily go into the Championship Weekend as the favorite.
Their efforts, once again, earned them the maximum 50 CDL Points, pushing them all the way up to second place, while Atlanta remained atop the standings with 30 points of their own.

CDL Paris Grand Final recap & highlights
The series kicked off on Gun Runner Hardpoint, a map and mode combination very familiar to these two teams. While it was a back-and-forth affair to start, Mutineers eventually gained control and secured the 250-190 victory to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
The second map, Piccadilly Search and Destroy, was a lot tighter, going all the way to round 11. The two powerhouse squads traded punches but it was ultimately Florida who clutched up at the end for a 6-5 win and a huge 2-0 advantage in the match.
😮 @Priestahh can’t get the kill!

With full momentum on their side, Mutineers put in arguably the most dominant performance of the season on Hackney Yard Domination, winning by an unbelievable scoreline of 235-70 – a margin that may have been unheard of until today.
Needless to say, it was all Florida from wire to wire, and a much-deserved 3-0 sweep saw them clinch the tournament victory and become the first team to go back-to-back this campaign.
🏆 BACK TO BACK! @Mutineers dominate @ATLFaZe 3-0 and are your #CDL2020 Paris Home Series Champions!
Congrats to @CesarSkyz, @FrostyBB, @ColtHavok, @f3rocitys, @Owakening, and coach @RickyAtura! #FearTheDeep pic.twitter.com/uQTXGUqKX4
