Day Three of Week Three at the CWL Pro League Stage 2 has concluded, wrapping up what was an intense first week of action for Division B.

Just four matches were played on the day, which included the highly anticipated matchup of Luminosity Gaming vs OpTic Gaming.

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 teams will be putting their new rosters to the test in what will most certainly be a long and highly contested competition.

Day Three started off with Mindfreak taking on compLexity Gaming, who came into the day still looking for their first win. That looked like a long shot after the Australian side took a 2-0 lead but an impressive reverse sweep improved coL to 1-2 in Stage 2.

UNILAD Esports defeated Tainted Minds 3-1 in the second match of the day, with the Europeans improving to a respectable 2-2 record after Week Three. Tainted Minds’ struggles continue as they are now 0-4.

Jason LakecompLexity Gaming were all smiles as they got an impressive reverse sweep against Mindfreak to get their first win of Stage 2.

The third match of the day featured eUnited taking on the Division B leading Rise Nation, who came into the match undefeated at 3-0. It appeared that they were well on their way to their fourth win after going up 2-0, but a spectacular reverse sweep gave eUnited the 3-2 victory and improved them to 2-1.

Day Three wrapped up with the Match of the Day, which was the highly anticipated grudge match between Luminosity Gaming’s new player Mathew ‘FormaL’ Piper and his former OpTic Gaming team.

However, the hype was not long-lived, as OpTic destroyed Luminosity 3-0 with all three games not even being close. OpTic remained the only undefeated team in Division B as they improved to 3-0, while LG lost their second match in a row to fall to 2-2.

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
