We now know the teams that will be competing for the ANZ Stage 2 trophy: OrbitGG, Mindfreak, Chiefs eSports Club, and Team Immunity. These are the top four teams in the region. Stage 1’s Cinderella story in the form of Tainted Minds just missed out- they’re currently in 5th place in the league.
In Europe, Splyce are simply destroying all challengers, and continuing to look as dangerous as they did at ESWC. It’s hard to imagine Team LDLC will manage to get their 2nd win of the season (the first was against a hapless Team Vitality) tonight against the team on a 7 game winning streak- but stranger things have happened.
two 11-1 teams both go at it today in the @CODWorldLeague with LDLC vs Splyce. https://t.co/0gprdR5Usl

OpTic Gaming are back on top of the North America table thanks to a win over FaZe Clan in last week’s show match. They look unlikely to plummet back down the table any time soon- as tonight they face the ever-changing Hundred Thieves squad. A mildly interesting storyline here- ACHES (100T) will be facing his old coL teammates in the form of Crimsix (OG) and Karma (OG). While ACHES has Remy, Royalty, and Nelson at his back, Crimsix and Karma have slay-heavy Scump and the all-around excellence that is Formal. It’s hard to imagine OpTic losing this match, but that’s the beauty of the online setting: you never know what can happen.
