The first MLG GameBattles 2000 Series tournament for the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season has now wrapped up for the European region.

A roster featuring ‘Nevo,’ ‘Weeman,’ ‘QwiKeR,’ ‘Dylan,’ and ‘Nolson’ claimed victory in the 2K tournament, securing the maximum 2,000 Pro Points and the $1,500 first place prize.

They entered the tournament with the team name of ‘DQWNN,’ since they do not yet have an organization to represent, which could change after this top performance.

DQWNN defeated the roster of ‘Niall,’ ‘Zerg,’ ‘Keza,’ ‘Creza,’ and ‘Braaain’ in the finals, another team which has not yet been recruited by an org.

Both finalists played two matches on November 5, as they were also victorious in their semi-final matchups against XXX and XXX respectively. 

Prior to the second day of competition, many of the region’s well-known teams were knocked out in the earlier rounds. 

EU powerhouses Red Reserve, Gone Gaming, Team Reciprocity, and the org-less squad featuring veterans MadCat, Dqvee, and others were all eliminated in day one, all finishing 5th-8th and claiming 600 Pro Points each.

The EU 2K tournament was the second of its kind to be played over the past few days; the APAC region’s competition ended on November 4 with Tainted Minds defeated Mindfreak in the finals.

CDL 2021 Stage 1 group draw explained: team selection, schedule, more

The 2021 season of the Call of Duty League is about to kick off and teams will be participating in the Stage 1 group draw at the CDL Kickoff Classic on January 24.

The CDL Kickoff Classic will be the first time fans can see their favorite teams in action, with every franchise playing one match against fan-voted opponents between January 23-24.

Perhaps the most important part of the weekend is the CDL Stage 1 group draw, which will see teams pick out who they want their opponents to face throughout Stage 1 of the season.

Each stage consists of three Home Series tournaments as well as a Major, all of which feeds into the World Championship tournament at the end of the season — so how these groups play out could have huge implications on the rest of the year. Here’s how the group draw is going to work, and how you can tune in.

How the group draw works

The 2021 season brings about a number of changes to the CDL.

The group draw selection takes place on Sunday, January 24, in a format that has left some fans a little confused.

The draw has been described as a reverse-snake-draft format, with teams picking who is in the opposing group, starting with the top two seeds of the 2020 season, Dallas Empire and Atlanta FaZe.

Here’s how it works:

  • Dallas pick the first team to be in Atlanta FaZe’s Stage 1 group — let’s call them Team 1.
  • Atlanta pick a team to be in Dallas’ group — let’s call them Team 2.
  • Team 1 then picks another team to be in Dallas’ group.
  • Team 2 then pick a team to be in Atlanta’s group, and so on.

If that doesn’t clear things up a little more for you, this table should help you visualize it a little better:

Group A Group B
Dallas Empire Atlanta FaZe
Team 2 (Atlanta FaZe’s pick) Team 1 (Dallas Empire’s pick)
Team 3 (Team 1’s pick) Team 4 (Team 2’s pick)
Team 6 (Team 4’s pick) Team 5 (Team 3’s pick)
Team 7 (Team 5’s pick) Team 8 (Team 6’s pick)
Team 10 (Team 8’s pick) Team 9 (Team 7’s pick)
Team 11 (Team 9’s pick) Team 12 (Team 10’s pick)

When is the group draw?

As mentioned, the group draw takes place on Sunday, January 24. As revealed by the CDL, it will be done prior to the OpTic Chicago vs Los Angeles Thieves match, which is due to take place at 3pm PST (6pm EST/11pm GMT).

This will set the stage for the first few events of the season, with the groups being shaken up for Stage 2. After the first Major, teams will go through the same process to decide Stage 2 groups, and for each stage after that until Champs rolls around.

So, it’ll be interesting to see how this group draw goes, as it should give us a good indication of which teams are highly rated (or the opposite) by their fellow pros, as well as setting the foundation for the rest of the year.
