Call of Duty World League Stage 2 Day 5

It’s Day 5 of the Call of Duty World League, but it may as well be named “A Day of Redemption”.

Previously in the Call of Duty World League…

Day 4 was riddled with surprises in every region, as Mindfreak finally not only lost a map, but they lost a match 3-1 to Orbit in the ANZ region.

In EU, Millenium looked disjointed and completely unlike the team that thrashed their opponents in the Stage One LAN Finals, as they fell to Giants Gaming 3-1.

North America became a total shambles for some of the top teams there, as first FaZe encountered host connection problems that had their players ice skating around the map:

FaZe lost their match 3-1 to Dream Team.

OpTic Gaming versus H2K (who was playing with Felo in place of a traveling Phizzurp) was equally unhinged, as Formal was repeatedly lagging out, and OpTic only barely managed to win the HP while playing 3v4.  The Search round went H2k’s way, and on Uplink, OG eventually asked to forfeit because the lag issue was making the game unplayable.  OpTic Karma had a humorous take on the issue:

Currently the match is a 3-1 loss to Dream Team, but CWL officials have tweeted that the match is under review:

Adding to the madness?  TSM, who struggled thus far in the league swept a hard charging EnVy squad who had looked like a top contender after the first week of play.  


So what will today have in store for the teams?  We’ll see.  

eLevate have finally announced their new 4th- Felo, who previously played on the relegated Counter Logic Gaming team.

OpTic Gaming will play their match against eLevate with a sub in the form of the one, the only, captain Patrick Price (ACHES).  Hecz said he would never be on OpTic, but hey, times change.  ACHES is filling in for Formal who is traveling from his home in California to the OpTic Scuf House in Chicago.
