Day Two of Week Seven of the CWL Pro League Stage 2 took place on July 11th for the eight teams in Division B.

With another set of five matches on the schedule, Day Two was full of wild upsets and incredible scorelines as things got tighter and tighter atop the standings.

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

While everyone 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 kicked off with eUnited defeating the red hot UNILAD Esports 3-1 to end the Europeans’ six game winning streak. The victory meant that eUnited and UNILAD would go into Day Three tied at 6-3.

Next came the upset of the Pro League as the 0-9 Tainted Minds shocked OpTic Gaming in a series that went to Round 11 of Game 5. More details and highlights can be seen in our match report here.

Following in the footsteps of Tainted Minds, compLexity Gaming came up with their own stunning upset as they demolished Rise Nation 3-0. Rise are now 0-2 in Week 7 after going 7-1 in their first 8 matches. 

Luminosity got back on track as they defeated Mindfreak 3-1 and improved to 4-5 to keep pace with the rest of the pack. Unfortunately for the Australians, they now find themselves well behind the pace at 2-7. 

CompLexity and Optic would both play twice on Day Two as they faced each other to close out the night. The series would end up going five games, but OpTic secured the 3-2 victory to improve to 7-3 on the season.

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.

Specific dates for the upcoming 2021 season events are still unknown, but we’ll keep you posted on them as information becomes available.

If you’re interested in seeing if you and your team have what it takes, you can get more information on how to sign up and get going right here. There’s no guarantee you’ll be the next player on the Dallas Empire or anything like that, but if you’re confident in your ability to frag out, it can’t hurt to give it a shot.
