EUnited Qualify for CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs, Eliminating Luminosity in the Process

North American pro Call of Duty team eUnited have qualified for the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

The org becomes the third team from Division A to clinch a postseason berth, joining UNILAD Esports and OpTic Gaming, both of whom qualified on July 17.

Coming into Day Two of the eighth and final week of the regular season with a 7-4 record, eUnited knew that victories against Tainted Minds and Luminosity Gaming would ensure a Playoff spot.

A swift 3-1 victory against the Australians set up an all-important matchup against LG. The first game featured an astonishing finish, as eUnited edged it out 231-230 in one of the closest Hardpoint matches of the season.

While a team kill by Clayster allowed LG to win the S&D by a score of 6-5, eUnited answered back with a 3-1 victory in the CTF to take a 2-1 lead.

The fourth game featured another close Hardpoint finish, but eUnited were able to clutch up and close out the series, securing themselves a Playoff spot.

Unfortunately for LG, the loss meant that they were eliminated from Playoff contention, capping off what has been a largely disappointing Stage 2 campaign for their new look squad.

The team will now have plenty of time to practice before the 2018 CWL Championships in August, where they will hope to find the success they did not achieve in the Pro League.
