Four teams fighting for first after Week 5 of the North American Call of Duty World League

After Week 5 of the North American Call of Duty World League Pro Division, four teams are competing for the number one spot. Rise Nation, FaZe Clan, OpTic Gaming, and Dream Team all have the same 6-2 win/loss record and only their map win percentages separate them in the standings.

Many of Week 5’s Day 1 matches went as expected: 100 Thieves’ struggle continued to unfold as Rise took them out with a 3-0 win. Team eLevate however, were able to finally find their place with their new roster to take down Luminosity 3-1.

Although Hardpoint Game 1 was close, OpTic were able to beat Cloud9 3-1, even taking Game 2 S&D with a quick 6-0 win.

Team EnVyUs were able to work through their team issues to dominate Dream Team 3-0 in the final match of Day 1. After Dream Team’s hot start in Stage 2, their struggle in Week 5 was shocking to see.

Cloud9, playing with Mochila as a fill in for Lama, upped their game in Day 2 of Week 5. They won their series against Team SoloMid 3-1 to finish their week off with a 1-1 record.

100 Thieves still could not win an Uplink game in Week 5, and Team EnVyUs won their series 3-1. Following their team issues, Nelson from 100 Thieves decided to leave. 100 Thieves announced that Patrick “Aches” Price will be joining them going forward in Stage 2.

The third Day 2 matchup was extremely close. eLevate put up an incredible fight in Game 1 Hardpoint as they overcame a large deficit to beat FaZe. The series continued to go back forth and was pushed all the way to Game 5. FaZe’s S&D skills outweighed eLevate, and they took the series 3-2.

The next match up on Day 2 was Luminosity vs. OpTic. OpTic once again dropped the Uplink map, but were able to take Hardpoint, S&D, and CTF to win the series 3-1. Karma’s clutch flag return in the final seconds of CTF helped them get the winning score.

The final match of Week 5 was Rise Nation vs. compLexity. compLexity’s Stage 2 struggle continued as they lost the series 0-3. A match between compLexity and Team SoloMid then took place off stream. compLexity won 3-1, leaving TSM with the last place #12 spot in the standings.

MATCH OF THE WEEK

The match of the week was H2K vs. Dream Team. Both of these teams were at Stage 1 relegation and fought their way back into Stage 2. Going into Week 5, these teams were in the #1 and #2 place in the standings.

This matchup was expected to be close, but that was the opposite of what happened. While Maven, Mr. X, and CouRage predicted an H2K win, only Revan’s prediction was accurate as Dream Team dominated the series, winning 3-0 and giving them a much-needed boost in their map win percentage.
