Minnesota RØKKR’s Home Series event will showcase some of the best teams in the league for what is poised to be an electrifying weekend of Call of Duty action.
Huntsmen reclaimed pole position in the CDL standings after dominating Seattle’s Home Series event. Although with RØKKR once again bowing out in the Group Stages, they’ll be looking to turn things around and bag some more important CDL Points at their Home Series event.
But with Atlanta FaZe, Dallas Empire, Florida Mutineers and Toronto UItra being welcomed back into the fold, there is plenty of stiff competition for the hosts. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of CDL Minnesota.
When is CDL Minnesota?
CDL Minnesota will take place between June 5-7. As with recent events, the Call of Duty League will be continuing with their online format.
Given that the event format will remain the same, the rules of play are the same too. So the first team from each group to secure two wins will earn a ticket to Sunday’s semifinals. Teams scraping through with two wins and a loss will follow and meet the winner’s of the group from the opposite side of the bracket.
Who is playing in CDL Minnesota?
All eight teams have been split into two groups. Two from each group will make it to the single-elimination bracket, while two will be heading home early.
CDL Minnesota groups
- Seattle Surge
- Atlanta FaZe
- Minnesota RØKKR
- Dallas Empire
- Los Angeles Guerrillas
- Toronto Ultra
- Chicago Huntsmen
- Florida Mutineers
Group A is as stacked as they come, with three out of the current top five teams pitted together in a true ‘group of death.’ Surge will take on FaZe in a rematch from CDL Chicago, where Surge’s rumored role switch will be put to the ultimate test.
The hosts have no easy feat either, as they’ll be locking horns with Dallas Empire in their tournament opener. Given their recent slump in form, they’ll be looking to bounce back against the Empire's hotshots.
On the other side of the bracket, Ultra and Guerrillas will be facing off in their group opener, while Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson will be looking to get one over his former team, Flordia Mutineers, as Huntsmen find themselves with a tough first match.
- 1st Place – 50 CDL Points
- 2nd Place – 30 CDL Points
- 3rd/4th Place – 20 CDL Points
- 5th/6th Place – 10 CDL Points
- 7th/8th Place – 0 CDL Points
