The final major open event of the 2018 CWL Season is upon us, as over 160 teams from around the globe descend on Anaheim, California, to compete for their share of the $200,000 prize pool.
It seems not so long ago that Team Kaliber were winning back to back events at the opening tournaments of the season, but after two open wins by Rise Nation, and one from Luminosity, there is only one left – and it’s the big one.
Every year, Anaheim outdoes itself with larger crowds and more teams competing, and this year is set to be yet another improvement, thanks in part to the work from organizers MLG.
All the action will begin on Friday, June 15th, with the pool play matches between the teams from both Division A and B of the CWL Pro League.
Sitting in top spot in Division B and having won the last major open, Rise Nation will come in as favorites, but top teams including Red Reserve, OpTic Gaming and Evil Geniuses all come in looking strong also.
