OpTic Gaming Clinch a Spot in the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs

OpTic Gaming Clinch a Spot in the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs

North America pro Call of Duty team OpTic Gaming have officially qualified for the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

The team becomes the second from Division B to clinch a postseason spot, with UNILAD Esports having claimed a berth earlier on July 17.

Coming into Day One of the eight and final week of the Pro League, OpTic had an 8-3 record and were tied with Rise Nation for first place in Division B.

With a match against that very same Rise team to wrap up the day, OpTic knew that a victory would not only give them a Playoff berth, but also create some separation in the quest for the top overall seed.

The match was as intense as expected, as Optic pulled through in the close Game One Hardpoint 250-236. Rise answered back with a 6-4 win on Valkyrie SnD, but fell behind again when OpTic dominated Flak Tower CTF 4-0.

OpTic would win the next Hardpoint 250-206 to grab the 3-1 victory as they clinched their Playoff spot and took over the top overall seed for the time being.

OpTic will now have two more matches, against UNILAD and Luminosity respectively, to try and clinch that top overall seed in Division B.

However, they will at least be rest assured that they will be one of eight teams in the Playoffs, where $500,000 in total prizes will be up for grabs.
