Day Two of Week Three (Week Five Overall) for Division A at the CWL Pro League Stage 2 was full of intense competitive Call of Duty action.

With a full set of five matches slated for the day, several teams had a chance to improve their position in the crowded and highly contested standings.

The CWL Pro League features a total of 16 teams divided into Divisions A and B, with the 8 teams of each group playing each other twice.

While every team receives a base cash prize for participating, the top four teams of each Division qualify for the Playoffs, where a whopping $500,000 prize pool will be up for grabs.

The day kicked off with a high profile matchup between the top two Division A teams as the 6-2 Red Reserve faced the 6-3 Evil Geniuses. The series was as tightly contested as expected, going to a Game 5 S&D Round 11, but it was Red who clutched up to take the crucial victory.

In the next match, struggling Splyce were able to snag a victory from Team EnVy 3-1, improving to 4-5 in Stage 2 while EnVy, who came into the day third in the standings, fell to 5-4.

CWLZer0 and his Red Reserve side got back on track on Day Two with an important win over second place Evil Geniuses

Also in a deep slump, FaZe Clan found themselves against the perfect opponent to start their rebound against as they got a swift 3-1 win against the still winless Epsilon eSports, who now sit at 0-9.

Next came another tough match as Team Kaliber faced off against Echo Fox, who had gone 2-0 in Day One. Despite falling down 0-2, Echo Fox were able to come back and win the match 3-2, completing their second reverse sweep of the week.

The day rounded off with FaZe vs Splyce as both teams were looking to go 2-0 on the day and get back to an even record. The match did not take long to conclude however, as FaZe wrapped up a dominant and all-important 3-0 victory.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
