OpTic Gaming swept aside Team Envy to end their first day at CWL Anaheim undefeated.

The latest iteration of the classic rivalry was a one-sided affair, as OpTic Gaming cruised through to a 3-0 victory.

This is the first time the two teams have fought since the OpTic Gaming roster change. Prior to that, their last clash saw Envy come out on top with a 3-1 in the group stage of CWL Seattle.

In Anaheim OpTic came out swinging, drawing first blood with a dominant 250-104 win on Gibraltar Hardpoint. The pressure didn’t let up on Valkyrie SND, with a 6-3 win putting OpTic on match point. Flak Tower CTF completed the sweep, a 3-0 score in both the map and the match.

Once known for their slow starts on Fridays, it seems the new OpTic team doesn’t want to leave anything up to chance at CWL Anaheim. Having only relinquished a single map on a 3-0 run on day one, OpTic are on track to lock up the top seed for the winner bracket with ease.

With that loss, Team Envy now finds themselves at 1-2 in the group, having beaten compLexity but also lost to Splyce. As a result, they’re now relying on results outside their control if they’re to secure a spot in the winner bracket.

OpTic 3 – 0 Envy

HP Gibraltar 250-104

SND Valkyrie 6-3

Format, rules, prizing

This is a single-elimination duos tournament that uses the popular bot-race format, meaning that teams matched up in the bracket must queue into a public quads lobby together. So, while they’re technically teammates in-game, they’re opponents for the purposes of the event.

All matches are best-of-three, with the combined number of kills between each pair of players counting as their score. The duo that gets more eliminations in a single game of Warzone is considered the victor of that game, and the first to win two of those advances in the bracket.

As for the prizing, $15,000 of the $25,000 goes to the champion team, $5,000 to the second-place duo, and another $5,000 will be donated to the Call of Duty Endowment.
