The first installment of the $2,500 CMG ProDown tournament for Black Ops 4 has reached the final stages with just four teams remaining heading into the second day of competition.
As has become the norm in online competition so far this season, OpTic Gaming looked to be in fine form on day one, cruising past some of the best teams on the planet in the upper bracket.
Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and crew defeated the likes of Splyce, eUnited and 100 Thieves to secure their spot in the Grand Final, where they will meet one of the remaining lower bracket teams on Monday, November 19.
Those three teams consist of 100 Thieves, Splyce and Luminosity Gaming, with 100T already holding a losers bracket final spot by virtue of their upper bracket final loss to OpTic Gaming.
Luminosity Gaming defeated G2 Esports and eUnited in the lower bracket after a tight upper bracket loss to Envy, while Splyce bounced back from their loss to OpTic and managed to eliminate Envy in losers round four.
The first match of day two will see Splyce and LG face off for a spot in the lower bracket final against Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat and the rest of the 100 Thieves team.
For Luminosity, this is the first time that fans have seen a hint of the level that was expected from them at the start of the season.
