The first CWL 2K series since the start of Stage Tow took place on May 19th, with 2000 pro points up for grabs for first place prize and an additional $500 USD.
This event was another single-elimination online competition, but does not feature teams from the CWL Pro League, giving teams outside of the top level an opportunity to rack up some extra points.
Ghost Gaming featuring big names Andres "Lacefield" Lacefield, Chris "Parasite" Duarte, Adam "GodRx" Brown, and Casey "Pandur" Romano came out in first place.

Team WaR had a particularly strong showing finishing as the tournament’s runner-up.
