The Rise Nation Call of Duty team has finally come alive after losing in winner bracket round one in a shock upset to the British squad of Infused.
The CWL Championships 2017 is the biggest event of the Infinite Warfare year and for Rise, it’s a chance at redemption after a disappointing season following their CWL Las Vegas win in December 2016.
Going up against a Ghost Gaming team who had impressed so far in the tournament, Rise found themselves neck and neck in a game 4 Retaliation Hardpoint.
Down at the lower street hill, Brice ‘Faccento’ Faccento would find a way to absolutely dominate two players from Ghost, breaking the Hardpoint.
The break would be able to give Rise many needed points in a map that would see numerous lead changes, eventually propelling them to a 250-229 win, and the series 3-1.
You can view the insane clip below.
Ghost Gaming would be eliminated from Champs contention after the loss, ending their run with a top 8 finish.
On the other hand, Rise will move on to play the loser of OpTic Gaming and Team EnVyus in Loser’s round 4.
