European based Call of Duty pro team UNILAD Esports have officially qualified for the CWL Pro Leage Stage 2 Playoffs.
The org became the first team from Division B to clinch a spot in the postseason, joining Division A’s Red Reserve as the only two non-NA teams in the Playoffs.
Coming into the eighth and final week of the Pro League, UNILAD sat in third place with a strong 7-3 record. Their Day One schedule consisted of two matches, against Mindfreak and Tainted Minds respectively.
After sweeping Mindfreak, UNILAD knew that a subsequent victory against Tainted Minds would qualify them, but things did not have to get to that. CompLexity Gaming’s victory against Luminosity ensured that, through tiebreakers, UNILAD could not finish outside of the top four.
