Ghost Gaming has become the first team to win two Call of Duty World League Challenges after defeating Evil Geniuses in the Grand Final of the seventh installment of the competition.
The CWL Pro League Challenge is a bi-weekly online tournament that gives eight ameteur teams the chance to compete with eight of the current Pro League teams for their share of a $2,000 prize pool.
The seventh Pro League Challenge, which began on July 1st, saw an ameteur team take the top spot after Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte’s Ghost Gaming defeated Evil Geniuses 3-1 in the Grand Final.
This is the second time in a row that the Pro League teams have fallen short after Enigma6 won the last competition with a 3-1 victory over Luminosity Gaming.
Ghost Gaming took a forfeit victory over Red Reserve in the quarterfinals but the team proved their worth with a comfortable win over Kade ‘Kade’ Jones’ team in the semifinals before plowing through Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price and company in the Grand Final.

This marks the first time that an organization has won more than one CWL Pro League Challenge as Ghost also claimed victory in the February 25th competition when Chance ‘Maux’ Moncivaez was on the roster.
The Evil Geniuses players will be disappointed about falling short of the title but their main focus will be on the final week of Division A action in the CWL Pro League, beginning on July 3rd.
ACHES’ team is currently sat in third place with a 7-4 record. They will need to face the likes of FaZe, Team Kaliber, and Team Envy in the last week as they attempt to hold on to a playoff spot.
