The final results from pool play at CWL Anaheim are in, meaning the first matches for the winners bracket are now set.

There was some big upsets which have unsettled the balance slightly, but the teams coming out on top of the groups certainly look the strongest on form.

Pool A was straightforward for Red Reserve, who finished 4-0 series count dropping only three maps, but it was much tighter between the other sides.

eUnited started poorly on day one, leaving them in the third spot with a 2-2 record, while FaZe bounced back from their loss against Red to win their next three matches.

Rise Nation did eventually tie up pool B, in spite of their shaky start losing 3-0 to Team Kaliber, and Luminosity secured second. tK’s shock defeat to Enigma6 ultimately cost them a winners bracket spot.

Pool C came to an insane finish, largely due to Evil Geniuses abysmal day one where they lost all three of their opening games. Three teams finished 3-1 – Mindfreak surprised to beat EG and Echo Fox in game five wins, but due to head-to-head record narrowly missed out on the winners bracket. UNILAD took the top spot, while Echo Fox got 2nd due to head-to-head.

Pool D was the most closely contested, with the exception of OpTic Gaming who went a flawless 4-0, both Splyce and Envy finished 2-2 after Splyce was beaten by open bracket team Conquest. Conquest themselves ended bottom of the group despite their very impressive performances, as they were beaten 3-0 by CompLexity.

Better than Karma & FormaL? Aydan reacts to Dr Disrespect praise | CharlieIntel Podcast #11

In Episode 11 of the CharlieIntel Podcast, battle royale superstar Aydan addresses the bold praise he recently received from Dr Disrespect, which caused quite the stir on social media.

Dr Disrespect recently raised a lot of eyebrows in the world of online gaming, particularly in the Call of Duty community, after he made bold comments claiming Aydan “could be the best controller gamer the world has ever seen.”

He called the former Fortnite pro “something else,” while insinuating that he was above and beyond the likes of Karma and FormaL, two CoD legends (and in the case of FormaL, also a Halo standout) who most consider to be the ‘GOATs’ (greatest of all time) in the console/controller scene.

When asked about it on the CharlieIntel Podcast, Aydan admitted to feeling very honored to be given such praise from the Two-Time and humbly named off some other controller players who he felt also deserved such recognition.

“It’s very honorable, of course, especially from Doc, how big he is,” he said on the CharlieIntel Podcast. “I think there are a lot of other talented controller players out there. For example Shotzzy, he won a Championship in Halo and CoD recently. FormaL also played Halo, so I definitely give them a lot of props.

“I’ve played Fortnite and Warzone and I’ve been doing well so I understand where he’s [Doc] coming from and on top of that, the world record game, which probably convinced him a little more. But I’ll take it, I’m happy with that.”
