Team Kaliber Triumphs at CWL Dallas
Two bomb threats and a technical error caused CWL Dallas to stutter and halt at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, but it couldn’t throw TK off of their game. The Call of Duty team defeated EU stars Splyce in the Grand Finals in a close 3-2 victory.
Team Kaliber is one of the oldest professional organizations in Call of Duty esports, but the team has struggled mightily for the past few years to make it to the top of the rankings. This win is a complete turnaround from the organization’s last placing at a CoD event in Dallas; at CWL Dallas in March, the team ended their run in 21st-24th place.
The team is lead by veteran player and TK mainstay Dylan “Theory” McGee, and rounded out by Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi, Martin Chino, and Kenny Kuavo.
Next up for the team is the CWL New Orleans Open on January 12th – January 14th, 2018.
