100 Thieves’ Warzone From Home – Grand Final Recap

Unlike all of the previous rounds, the grand final consisted of three Warzone games instead of two, with the team that got the most points (based on eliminations and wins) at the end earning the championship.

The grand final started off as a pretty one-sided affair in the favor of Team JoshOG, who took a fairly commanding 36-21 lead, despite not managing to get the win at the end and claim the bonus five points.

Aydan’s squad tried their best to get back into it in the second game, scoring plenty of kills and winning the match – but even that wasn’t enough to cut the lead, as their opponents got their own victory to grow the lead to 89-71.

 

Knowing they had to go all out in the third and final game, Team Aydan dropped 35 kills, but were not able to get the victory; and with Team JoshOG getting enough eliminations to maintain the lead at 129-111, they were able to secure the tournament victory.

2021 CDL Challengers info announced: Scouting & Elite Series

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
