Despite being one of the top Call of Duty teams heading into CWL Fort Worth, eUnited faced much hardship right out the gate and have been eliminated from the tournament in their first match of Day 2.

Given that eUnited were the runner-ups at CWL Vegas back in December, many expected them to once again contend for the title at CWL Fort Worth this weekend.

After finishing the Pool Play stage with a lackluster 1-2 record at the bottom of Pool D, however, their misfortune continued into Saturday when they ran into a hot 100 Thieves squad.

Led by Clayster, eUnited were one of the favorites coming into CWL Fort Worth.

Coming out the gate, it was 100 Thieves that got things going with a fairly convincing 250-168 win on Arsenal Hardpoint.

The action then switched over to Arsenal Search & Destroy where 100 Thieves jumped out to a quick 4-1 lead right off the bat.

eUnited then made things a bit more interesting by rallying back and forcing things to a decisive Round 11. Once there, though, 100 Thieves completely took over to close out the round and take a 2-0 lead.

Moving to Gridlock Control, eUnited managed to push through with a fairly dominant 3-0 victory that sent the game to Seaside for the final Hardpoint round.

Much like the first Hardpoint, eUnited couldn’t withstand the the pressure from 100 Thieves and were sent packing with a 250-194 loss.

eUnited will now have to get back to the drawing board before the CWL Pro League starts up again following this substandard 13-16 finish in Fort Worth.
