The second CWL 2000 Series tournament of the Black Ops 4 season has now wrapped up for the North American region.

OpTic Gaming defeated rivals eUnited in the finals, claiming the 2,000 Pro Points and $1,500 first place prize.

Despite the hype and anticipation leading up to this match, OpTic turned it into a very one-sided affair, as the final scoreline was 3-0 in favor of the champions.

The first map, Hardpoint on Arsenal, saw OpTic 100 point club eUnited, winning 250-95. The Gridlock S&D was much closer, ending with a 6-4 scoreline.

The tightest game was the Control on Payload, which saw OpTic pull off a strong comeback to win 3-2 and wrap up the 2K.

OpTic have now won both 2K tournaments to start off the Black Ops 4 season, although they weren’t as perfect as when they went 27-0 in overall map count during last week’s competition.

The first seven rounds of the tournament were played on November 11, with the competition resuming on the 12th for the quarterfinals and on.

Here are the score-lines for all of the day two matches:

  • QF1: OpTic Gaming 3-1 Orgless 2kk
  • QF2: Excelerate Gaming 1-3 UYU
  • QF3: eUnited 3-0 YERRRR
  • QF4: Splyce 3-0 Orgless 2k
  • SF1: eUnited 3-0 Splyce
  • SF2: OpTic Gaming 3-1 UYU
  • Final: OpTic Gaming 3-0 eUnited

As was the case in week one, several powerhouse teams were notably missing from the final eight that made it to day two.

This included Luminosity Gaming, FaZe Clan, G2 Esports, and 100 Thieves, all of whom were eliminated in round seven and finished 9-16.

Meanwhile, the defending World Champion roster of Team Envy finished 17-32 again, failing to move past the sixth round for the second week in a row.

 

OpTic GamingOpTic’s new roster has been meshing very well, which has resulted in back-to-back 2K tournament wins.

The final placements for the top-32 teams can be seen in the table below, and the full bracket for this tournament is available on the MLG 2K web-page HERE.

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.
