Rise Nation Marches to CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs Winner Bracket Final
Rise Nation has reached the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs winner bracket final after a 3-1 victory over eUnited.
The CWL Seattle and CWL Anaheim champions remain on track for a third consecutive title, dispatching eUnited to advance in the winner bracket.
Rise opened up the series with a 250-208 win on Gibraltar Hardpoint, but eUnited were quick to respond, demolishing Rise on London Docks Search and Destroy 6-1.
In the lowest-scoring Flak Tower Capture the Flag of the event so far, both teams ground each other to a halt throughout most of the map. As a result, only one opening was needed to secure the win, and it was Rise Nation that found it, a solitary capture securing a 2-1 series lead.
Unfortunately for eUnited, Valkyrie Hardpoint was Rise Nation’s most convincing game of the series, an impressive 250-124 win that only ever looked to be going the way of Rise, closing out the series 3-1.
Rise Nation will face Team Kaliber in the winner bracket final, who themselves have been in impressive form so far. eUnited is still alive, but they will now face UNILAD for survival in the lower bracket.
