TheCall of Duty squads jostling for their final standing ahead of the CWL Finals.

Despite a few teams already knowing their faith ahead of Miami, that didn’t affect the action as there were three helpings of 3-1 series’, as well as a classic 3-0 for good measure.

MLGOpTic wrapped Division A prior to the final week of CWL Pro League action.

Elevate 1-3 Team Reciprocity

In the first match of the night, Elevate locked horns with finals-chasing Team Reciprocity and tried to play spoiler by denying Bradley ‘wuskin’ Marshall’s squad a chance at making it to Miami. However, Reciprocity squared things away by a 3-1 scoreline.

The majority-British team scored Frequency Hardpoint by a score of 250-193 but allowed Elevate to return serve with a 6-5 victory on Arsenal Search and Destroy. Yet, wuskin’s men responded with a 3-1 win on Arsenal Control before finishing things off with a 250-108 result on Hacienda Hardpoint.

Midnight 3-1 Envy

After taking down OpTic Gaming in a 3-0 series in their last outing, Team Envy looked to take that momentum into their last Pro League game of the season – but fell to a dominant Midnight performance.

Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte’s squad opened things up with an almost flawless 250-67 win on Gridlock Hardpoint before dropping the subsequent Search and Destroy. Midnight regained, however, taking Seaside Control with a 3-0 before closing things down with a 250-219 win on Hacienda Hardpoint.

Gen.G 3-0 Team Heretics

Prior to the main event, Gen.G took down Team Heretics in the only 3-0 sweep of the night. Gen.G, who have been on the verge of winning an event in Black Ops 4 but have not been able to get over the hump, kicked things off with a 250-144 victory on Frequency Hardpoint. 

The series remained on Frequency for the following two maps, with Gen.G holding off a feisty Heretics showing in Search and Destroy – winning 6-4 – before dominating the Control match-up by a 3-0 scoreline.

Both teams have qualified for the Miami event – with Heretics needing to take down a play-in team before they have a chance of advancing in the winner’s bracket.

eUnited 1-3 OpTic Gaming

OpTic Gaming faced off against a red-hot eUnited team who were looking to claim the top spot in Division B. James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks’ men dropped the first Hardpoint on Arsenal by a 250-226 following a rousing late surge from OpTic. 

However, they quickly rallied and begun their dismantling of the Greenwall with an impressive 6-1 win on Payload Search and Destroy. Clayster’s squad didn’t let up either, picking up the Arsenal Control by a 3-1 scoreline before finishing things off with a 250-179 win on Gridlock Hardpoint. 

With the Pro League now done and dusted, teams will be looking ahead to the final major LAN events of the Black Ops 4 season, starting with the CWL Finals in Miami on July 19, before the big one – Call of Duty Champs in August.

It remains to be seen as to who will end up as the ultimate dominant force in Black Ops 4, but it should be a tightly-contested field before the focus turns to Modern Warfare.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
