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.

The final placements from the July 1st CWL Pro League Challenge are as follows:

1st Ghost Gaming Lacefield, GodRx, Pandur, Parasite $1,500
2nd Evil Geniuses ACHES, Apathy, Assault, SiLLY $500

The Call of Duty League has combined Weeks 2 and 3 of Stage 1 into one massive Super Week of matches, and everything you need to watch and follow the event live can be found below.


  • Empire take on struggling Royal Ravens looking to get back into win column.
  • Surge hoping to play spoiler to Thieves’ dreams of perfect 3-0 start.
  • OpTic face stiff test in Ultra – both teams searching for second win of 2021.

Due to the inclement weather in Texas and other parts of the United States causing power outages for a lot of pro players, the CDL opted to combine the Week 2 and 3 matches into Super Week.

Seven straight days of matches will see all 12 teams in action at least three times, and with the Stage 1 Major looming around the corner, this will be the final opportunity for teams to improve their seeding for the $500,000 tournament.

Mutineers get first win of 2021, FaZe stay unbeaten

After losing their season-opener at CDL Opening Weekend, Florida Mutineers’ new-look lineup got their first win of 2021 with a 3-1 victory over LA Guerrillas, who now sit at 1-2. LAG won the first map in dominant fashion before the Mutineers ripped off three straight maps to secure the series.

The second match of the day was a battle of the unbeatens as Atlanta FaZe took on Toronto Ultra. The series started back-and-forth, and if it wasn’t for a clutch break at the end of the Raid Hardpoint, Atlanta may have found themselves down 0-2 early.

But things settled down after the second map as FaZe took games three and four quite comfortably to secure the 3-1 victory. The win now gives the boys in red a league-leading three wins, against just zero losses, while Ultra drop to 1-1.

Legion & Subliners sweep their way to first wins, ROKKR stay hot vs Surge

After going 0-2 in the Opening Weekend, Paris Legion finally got their first win of 2021 at Super Week, and what a win it was. Despite being underdogs to the Mutineers, Legion pulled off a shocking sweep that featured a rare Hardpoint ending on time.

Following Paris’ script, the New York Subliners also notched their first one in the win column after sweeping London Royal Ravens in perhaps the most dominant performance we’ve seen so far in 2021.

None of the three maps were close, especially the Control, which saw NYSL shred their opponents from start to finish and not give them even a chance at making any sort of comeback. With the loss, Royal Ravens now sit at 0-2 early on in the season.

Rounding off a trio of Day 2 sweeps was Minnesota ROKKR grabbing their second win in a row after taking apart Seattle Surge 3-0. The series was closer than the final scoreline would suggest as Surge did make solid comebacks in both the S&D and Control, only to fall just short in both.

The win is ROKKR’s second in a row after their upset victory over Dallas Empire at Opening Weekend. Meanwhile, Seattle falls to 1-2, suffering already their second sweep this season.
