Day One of the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs has come to a close after an intense day of competitive Call of Duty action.
With the four matches of the Winners Bracket Round 1 now all wrapped up, the two brackets are set for what should be an exciting rest of the tournament.
Taking place from July 27-29 at the MLG Arena in Columbus, OH, the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs features the top four regular season teams from Division A and B.
The competition features a double elimination bracket and a whipping $500,000 prize pool, not to mention the pro points needed to improve seeding for CWL Champs.
The action kicked off with Team Kaliber taking care of UNILAD Esports by a scoreline of 3-1, in a match that featured an excellent triple kill from 'Kenny' in the Game 2 S&D.
Echo Fox took on eUnited in the following match, in a battle featuring two teams that ended their regular seasons on fire.
However, eUnited cruised to a relatively easy 3-1 victory, helped on by an overtime golden flag capture in the Game 3 CTF.
In the next match, Division A's top seeded team Red Reserve took on Rise Nation in a rematch of the CWL Anaheim Grand Final. Just as in that event, Rise got the upper hand over their European counterparts and took the match 3-1.
The final match of the day featured OpTic Gaming against FaZe Clan in a rematch of the Stage 1 Playoffs Grand Final. The match went down to the wire, but FaZe clutched up for the victory in Round 11 of the Game 5 S&D
