The Division B teams of the CWL Pro League got their action started as Day One of the third overall week of Stage 2 kicked off on May 29th.
A total of five matches were played on the day, and one team has already gotten off to an incredible, high-flying start.
The CWL Pro League Stage 2 features a total of 16 teams divided into two Divisions, with the top four team in each Division qualifying for the $500,000 Playoffs.
With so many massive roster changes since the conclusion of Stage 1, many of the Division B teams will put their new rosters to the test in what will most certainly be a long and highly contested competition.
Day One kicked off with the new look UNILAD roster coming up against Stage One Division A winners Rise Nation. Unfortunately for the European side, their roster change could not prevent a 3-0 demolition at the hands of Rise.
Following that up was one of the most anticipated games of the young Stage 2 season as Luminosity and their new star man Mathew ‘FormaL’ Piper came up against eUnited.
LG looked doomed after falling behind 0-2 but a Game 5 Round 11 victory gave them a 3-2 victory as they completed an impressive reverse sweep.
Playing for a new team after 3+ years with OpTic Gaming, Mathew ‘FormaL’ Piper helped Luminosity Gaming win their first match of Stage 2.
OpTic Gaming followed things up by fielding a new roster for the first time in over three years. The results stayed as good as ever as they got a tidy 3-1 victory over UNILAD, who fell to 0-2 to start Stage 2.
Rise Nation played their second match of the day, and got their second sweep in as many games, as they defeated new look compLexity Gaming 3-0.
The final match of Day One was an all APAC region affair, as Mindfreak welcomed Tainted Minds to the Pro League with a tight, 3-2 victory.
