July 18 marked the second day of action for Division B in the eight and final week of the CWL Pro League Stage 2 regular season.

Five matches were on the slate for Day Two, as teams did their best to not only secure a Playoff spot, but to make sure they finish as the highest seed possible.

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 there for the taking.

Day Two started off with eUnited beating Tainted Minds 3-1 to improve to 8-4 and move closer to a Playoff berth.

That was followed by Mindfreak defeating compLexity Gaming 3-2 in a match that went Game 5 Round 11. Unfortunately, the loss eliminated compLexity from postseason contention.

EUnited would play again on Day Two, as they beat Luminosity Gaming 3-1 to win their third in a row and officially clinch a Playoff spot. The loss officially put an end to LG’s Playoff hopes as they had come in needing a win to survive.

The main beneficiary from the day’s earlier results were Rise Nation, as they automatically qualified with both compLexity and LG getting eliminated.

With their Playoff spot clinched, Rise turned their focus to seeding as they cast aside the struggling LG 3-1 to improve to 9-4.

The day wrapped up with the Match of the Day that featured UNILAD Esports and OpTic Gaming, both of whom came in tied for the first seed at 9-3

OpTic secured the 3-1 victory and exacted their revenge over the Europeans for knocking them out at CWL Anaheim. With their fourth straight victory, the 10-3 OpTic took sole control of the top spot in the standings, with eUnited, Rise, and UNILAD all tied at 9-4.

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.
