The Dallas Empire Home Series has now wrapped up, with Florida Mutineers claiming victory! Check out our full CDL Dallas recap for highlights, brackets, and more.

It’s been over a month since Call of Duty esports fans have seen any CDL action, with the current global health crisis forcing the league to restructure its inaugural 2020 season and the remaining Home Series all to be played online.

The last event was in Los Angeles, which was won by the Dallas Empire, and now Clayster, Crimsix, and co. are trying to go back-to-back as they “host” their own Home Series.

The tournament works the same as it would have on LAN, except the eight participating teams are competing online over the course of three days, instead of two.

There are some heavy hitters in attendance, including Chicago Huntsmen, Minnesota ROKKR, Florida Mutineers, and Paris Legion, all of whom are currently in the top five of the 2020 CDL standings.

Everything you need to know about this Home Series can be found below, including the official stream, schedule, results, brackets, rosters, and more.

Format & rules

Like all CDL events, the Dallas Empire Home Series operates a tournament format featuring eight of the league’s 12 teams in attendance.

The squads are split into two groups of four, in which they play a double-elimination bracket. Two series wins guarantees a spot in the playoff bracket, while two losses means elimination.

Two teams from each group will advance to the playoffs – a single-elimination bracket consisting of two semifinal matches and the Grand Final.

While winning the Home Series is the ultimate goal for each side, there are some valuable CDL Points on the line as well. Each series victory is worth 10 CDL Points, with an additional 10 bonus ticks going to the champion.

  • 1st – 50 CDL Points
  • 2nd – 30 CDL Points
  • 3rd/4th – 20 CDL Points
  • 5th/6th – 10 CDL Points
  • 7th/8th – 0 CDL Points

Call of Duty

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
