Full recap for WorldGaming Black Ops 4 tournament

GROUP A

The WorldGaming Black Ops 4 tournament featured eight teams split into two groups of four. In Group A, the two favorites FaZe Clan Black and Evil Geniuses were able to advance to the playoffs, while Nemesis and Team WaR were the odd teams out.

Evil Geniuses won the group thanks to two 3-0 performances against Team WaR and FC Black respectively, while FC Black had to get a tight 3-2 victory over Team War to advance.

GROUP B

In Group B, it was actually Cyclone who surprisingly who was the first to clinch a playoff spot, having beaten CWL Pro League teams UYU and Yerr 3-0 and 3-1 respectively.

Yerr, who were one of the favorites to win the entire thing, also managed to advance to the playoffs by defeating Nation of Power 3-0 in the Group B Lower Final.

PLAYOFFS

With the four playoff teams set, day two of the WorldGaming Black Ops 4 tournament commenced on April 7, with Cyclone taking on FC Black and Evil Geniuses battling Yerr.

Despite having won Group B, Cyclone were pretty much manhandled in the match, as FC Black swept them 3-0 to clinch a spot in the Grand Final.

On the other side of the bracket, the heavyweight matchup between two tournament favorites ended with Yerr defeating Evil Geniuse 3-1, who finished tied for third with Cyclone.

GRAND FINAL

With the playoff semifinals complete, the two Grand Finalists for the WorldGaming Black Ops 4 tournament were FC Black and Yerr – the top amateur squad in the world against an all-star cast of professional players from different CWL Pro League teams.

The game one Hardpoint on Frequency went pretty much how everyone expected – a tightly fought battle that saw FC Black win by the thin margin of 250-242.

Yerr responded to the first map defeat with a resounding victory in the game two Search and Destroy on Arsenal, tying up the Grand Final score at one apiece. 

It was a pretty balanced effort for Yerr in the game, as four of the five players finished with at least six EKIA, two of whom had eight or more.

With the Grand Final now tied, the game three Control on Frequency would prove to be a very pivotal match, and Yerr ended up taking the map 3-1 to push their opponents to the brink going into game four.

With full momentum on their side, Yerr made sure that the fourth map would end up being the last one, taking the Gridlock Hardpoint 250-110 and locking up the Grand Final 3-1.

Wuskin & Rated fuel Paris Legion drama as both miss CDL 2021 season

Drama surrounding Paris Legion’s roster for the upcoming Call of Duty League season has boiled over as Rhys ‘Rated’ Price and Bradley ‘wuskin’ Marshall both appear to be “missing out” heading into the 2021 season.

Two of the most accomplished Call of Duty players out of Europe, Rated and wuskin have both been competing at the highest levels for the past few years.

While they were teammates on the original London Royal Ravens roster, their CDL careers appear to have hit a bump in the road ahead of the 2021 season.

Seven players were let go from the Ravens on September 9. Among them was none other than Rated and wuskin.

The London-based organization has since locked in its four starting players for the Black Ops Cold War season with Zer0, Dylan, Alexx, and Seany all joining the team.

As various players push for positions on the three remaining orgs with open spots, Paris Legion has become the only franchise left without a single player under contract. Despite Rated and wuskin clearly vying for a position, it appears they’ve been left out of the mix.

“You lot are gonna be gobsmacked when news drops soon,” wuskin tweeted on November 23. Evidently, it’s safe to assume the Legion roster has been finalized and it’s only a matter of days before it’s public.

However, wuskin has confirmed he won’t be part of the team. “Can’t believe I’m missing out on the year,” he followed up.

Rated echoed this reaction, slamming developments behind closed doors and calling out nepotism among various teams.

“CDL Friend league got taken to a whole new level. Mind-blowing. Fraudulent people in jobs as per.”

Together under the Ravens banners, Rated and wuskin had one top-four finish in the season, while wuskin achieved a second-place finish in week 8 with Rated on the bench.

Despite middling results throughout the majority of the season, the London franchise finished fourth in the Championship event, claiming $450,000 for their efforts.

Unless things change at the final hour, both veteran players will seemingly miss their chance at improving on these placements in the 2021 season.

There’s currently no indication of who Paris Legion signed, though we can expect this to be revealed over the coming days.

Paris Legion is still yet to announce any new signings after letting go of every player under contract.

In some positive news, wuskin’s twin brother Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall seems to have landed himself a spot in the League. “My bro good and that’s all that matters,” wuskinz tweeted on November 18.

Even without being part of the League for the upcoming season, both wuskin and Rated still have their sights set on actively competing in other ways.

Whether it’s Warzone tournaments or popular streaming events, they’ll still be grinding Call of Duty from the looks of things.
