Rise Nation Wins at CWL: Anaheim for Back-to-Back Titles

Posted by June 18, 2018 Comment

This weekend saw the second stage of the Call of Duty World League Pro League as well as the sixth and final major Open event for this year’s league. Taking over part of the Anaheim convention center, the over 150 CWL teams battled it out from June 15-17th for their share of the $200,000 USD prize pool.

This CWL tourney had more of an international affair thanks to the various European and Japanese teams in attendance, while Seattle was much more of a home show. However, the North American teams remained on top of the open bracket.

Rise Nation came in as the favorite team to win big at this event after their win at CWL Seattle. They took out Red Reserve in the Grand Finals pretty handily, making this tournament a bit less of an upset frenzy than Seattle though with more top international teams, the final rankings are a bit different than we saw last time.

The final standings are:

  1. Rise Nation : SlasheR, Loony, Gunless, TJHaLY
  2. Red Reserve: Skrapz, Rated, Zero, Joee
  3. Luminosity: Slacked, JKap, FormaL, John
  4. UNILAD: Wuskin, Seany, Alexx, Zed

FaZe Clan and OpTic Gaming tied for 5/6th place, with Mindfreak and Tainted Mines tying for 7/8th. Rounding out the top 12 were EUnited, Spluce, Echo Fox, and Team Kaliber. Favorites from the Seattle Tournament, Evil Geniuses and Ghost Gaming were tied for 13/16th place alongside TEam Envy and CompLexity.
