Week One for Division A at the CWL Pro League Stage 2 has all wrapped up after the conclusion of all the Day Three matches.

With a quarter of the regular season for Division A already gone by, the top four teams have begun separating themselves from the lower end of the table.

The 16 Pro League Stage 2 teams are split into two Divisions, with the top four finishers 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 are putting their new rosters to the test in what is set out to be a difficult and demanding regular season.

The first match of the day featured the two North American powerhouse teams Team Kaliber and FaZe Clan, who were still looking for their first win of Stage 2.

FaZe appeared to be well on their way to get that win after going up 2-0, but were shockingly reverse swept by tK, falling to 0-3.

Echo Fox took the second game of the day 3-1 over Epsilon eSports, securing a 3-1 start while dropping Epsilon to a miserable 0-3.

With their relentless sweep of Splyce, Red Reserve find themselves at 3-0 after Week One of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.

The third game of the day was an all-European affair as Red Reserve looked to stay undefeated vs Splyce. That they did in a very convincing manner as their 3-0 dominant victory kept them undefeated with a  3-0 record, all while Splyce slipped to 1-3.

The final game of the day featured another undefeated team in Team EnVy facing Evil Geniuses and it was EG who got the narrow, 3-2 victory to hand EnVy their first loss of Stage 2.

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.
