As the Chicago Home Series continued into Day 2, we’ve seen a surge in the Seattle Surge as they won all their games on opening day. But, they were going to be finally tested by the Dallas Empire on Day 2, and tested they were. In the series, the Surge came out on top in the first match, showing signs of confidence and direction, something that has been missing from the squad. However, the next few matches were exchanged leading up to a game 5 that was won by the Dallas Empire in Hardpoint, 250-198. Although the Surge won’t move onto CDL Sunday, there are many positives to take away from this tournament. They were able to win two in a row and keep up with one of the best teams in the league. This can be a turning point for the team collectively.

The next match up was between FaZe and Subliners. After the subliners upset the Huntsmen, that was definitely a reason for concern with FaZe since this looked to be a completely different New York squad than before. After the first match win from Subliners, fans started to wonder if there was another upset ready to be written in the books. The Atlanta FaZe would be the next two games, but New York wasn’t ready to be written off as they took the series to a game 5. However, one of the highlight moments of the series was Temp’s wallbang on the defuse which is one of the most brilliant plays we’ve seen in these tournaments. Unfortunately, despite how well New York performed, Atlanta came out on top winning 3-2 in the series.

Other matches saw LA Guerrillas end OpTic Gaming’s run in the tournament, as well as Huntsmen eliminating the London Royal Ravens. The Surge would face the Guerrillas for a spot in the semi-finals and ended up coming on top 3-1. While in the other quarter match, the Huntsmen would face the Subliners in a rematch. Although the Subliners took the first match in hopes of repeating their result in day 1, the Huntsmen came back 3 games to win the series and send the Subliners packing home.

The four teams remaining in the Chicago Home Series is:

  • Atlanta Faze
  • Seattle Surge
  • Dallas Empire
  • Chicago Huntsmen

It will be the first time Seattle Surge have made it out of the qualifying rounds. It will be a pivotal point for the team if they are able to move onto the finals from here, but it will be a big hill to climb against the talent Atlanta FaZe team. In the other match, fans get to see another match-up between the rivals, Empire and Huntsmen. Dallas have yet to get a win against Chicago on LAN, and this time they will be looking to end their losing streak. It will definitely be an exciting CDL Sunday and here is the schedule below:

Day 3 – April 26 – Sunday

1). 4:00 AM ET / 1:00 PM PT / 9:00 PM BST
  • Atlanta FaZe 3 : Seattle Surge 1 [FINAL RESULT]
2). 5:30 AM ET / 2:30 PM PT / 10:30 PM BST
  • Dallas Empire 3 : Chicago Huntsmen 0 [FINAL RESULT]
3). 7:00 PM ET / 4:00 PM PT / 12:00 PM BST
  • Dallas Empire 3 – Atlanta FaZe 1 [FINAL RESULT]

Dallas Empire win their second CDL home series title in the season and place first overall in the leaderboards.

Day 2 – Chicago Huntsmen Home Series – April 25

It was quite a day for the Chicago Home Series. We saw a bit of everything from the good, the bad, and the awkward. No one really knows what to expect from online play and how the day will be played out. Starting off with the Royal Ravens and FaZe, there was an on-going discussion between Miles and Momo about FaZe’s underlying weakness. It is hard to say because technically there isn’t any weakness in the team on the surface level. The only thing Momo could say is that the Atlanta FaZe are not winning their games by bigger margins. In the first match, FaZe swept the Royal Ravens 3-0, however, there were many close games and rounds throughout the series, and a few more gunfight wins would have pushed the Royal Ravens ahead. However, that’s what great teams are able to do; they can find ways to win even if it’s by a few inches. Regardless, both teams played exceptionally well and both are set up to have a great day 2.

The second match was between two struggling teams; the Surge and the Guerrillas. What’s surprising about these two teams is that the Seattle Surge, on paper, have a great roster. the Guerrillas have a good team, however, have faired better than the Surge at the start of the season. The LAG have since only gone downhill and both teams were looking for a turnaround. The final result between the two was a 3-0 sweep for the Surge which was a win they very much needed. Unfortunately for the LAG, they’ll need to continue to look for consistency going forward which is not easy to do in their current situation. Dallas Empire played OpTic Gaming and won 3-1. Fans were expecting a little more from this match considering the roster on both teams, however, OpTic Gaming continue their losing streak. OGLA didn’t look bad at all in this series, and there were many close maps, but Empire’s experience from Clayster and C6 alongside Shotzzy‘s amazing performance pushed them over the top.

To add to the day, we had some fun seeing a passionate Crimsix speak to Lottie after getting asking about “going for the win here”. Crimsix answers with “What? What kind of question is that?”. Of course, Crimsix just came off a high win and probably doesn’t want to hear any second-guessing about his team’s ability which is fair.

The last match was between the home team, the Huntsmen, and the struggling New York Subliners. Fans were calling the game in favor of the Huntsmen, however, it was a completely different series than most expected. The Subliners went up 2-0 in the series, shocking the Call of Duty esports world since no one expected them to do that to the #1 team in the league at the moment. However, we’ve seen this play out before when New York were up 2-0 against the Toronto Ultra and Temp stood up in front of the crowd flashing the number two with his fingers. What happened is that Toronto did a reverse sweep and we were going to see the same thing happen here. The Huntsmen crawled back up to even things out at 2-2-, and if there was any team in the league that could pull a reverse sweep, it’s definitely the Huntsmen. But that didn’t happen. On the last Search and Destroy map, New York were able to hold their lead at 5-3 and put the spike in the hearts of Huntsmen fans upsetting them 6-3 and winning the series.

It was an amazing battle between the two teams and New York has finally climbed out of the bottom of a tournament for the time being. Unfortunately, we’re not able to see the reactions of the players as we would at a live event, however, pictures are worth a thousand words.

Day 1 – Chicago Huntsmen Home Series – April 24

After a long break, the CDL has resumed and kicked off its online play with the Dallas Home Series. Since the new format was changed to online play, the CoD competitive community brought that up for discussion since certain teams have played better online than on LAN, for example, the Dallas Empire. Perhaps this might have been a variable in the tournament two weeks ago, but the standings and results stayed quite consistent from LAN events in Minnesota, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. Heading into the CDL Chicago Home Series, the Dallas Champs, Florida Mutineers are sitting out for the event alongside the Rokkr, Legion, and Ultra.  The format of the weekend will cover three days as opposed to two like in previous events.

Eight esports teams will compete this weekend. The teams competing are the Atlanta FaZe, Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, London Royal Ravens, New York Subliners, Los Angeles Guerrillas, OpTic Gaming Los Angeles, and Seattle Surge. Currently, this is how the Call of Duty League leaderboards looks after two home series:

CDL Leaderboards April 24 2020 Esports

In the last home series, we saw some light shine from the Toronto Ultra who won their first game against the Florida Mutineers, and the Paris Legion beating the Seattle Surge.  Toronto was in need of a win and they were able to finally show some life. But unfortunately, they lost in the Qualifier Match to Dallas and then knocked out by Florida who got their revenge. The same happened with Paris Legion as they lost to the Huntsmen in the Qualifiers, and were then eliminated by the Rokkr. Seattle Surge and LA Guerillas continued to struggle, losing all their games in the tournament, showing major concern for their fans. In the semis, Dallas Empire was beat by the Rokkr, who got their revenge after losing to Dallas in the Finals in the last event, and the Florida Mutineers continued to be the backpain for Chicago as they’ve beaten them twice in a row. The Mutineers ended up taking home the title in Dallas after showing much resilience in the tournament.

The prize pool and points will be as follows:

Home Series Prize Pool
  1. $50,000 – 50 CDL points
  2. $30,000 – 30 CDL points
  3. $10,000 – 20 CDL points
  4. $10,000 – 20 CDL points
  5. $0 – 10 CDL points
  6. $0 – 10 CDL points
  7. $0 – 0 points
  8. $0 – 0 points

CDL Chicago Huntsmen Format Home Series 2020
@CODLeague

Heading into the Chicago Home Series, The Subliners, Royal Ravens and FaZe are back in action. Fans are hoping to finally see a FaZe vs Huntsmen match which hasn’t happened yet. The Atlanta FaZe will be looking to come back hitting hard after losing in the last tournament they participated in for the first time. Chicago won’t be able to get their revenge on the Mutineers, but they will have to possibly face two of the league’s best teams (Dallas and Atlanta) as they look to stay ahead of the pack in the leaderboards.

New York and LAG sit at the bottom of the leaderboards and many fans in the community are writing them off. Will both teams be able to rise finally in this tournament? The Guerrillas might have a chance to start off positive as they take on the struggling Surge. The same can’t be said for the Subliners who will play the #1 team in the league, the Huntsmen.

The Royal Ravens will be looking to get out of the lower part of the leaderboards and go past the Paris Legion who sits in 6th place right above them. But their first match will be a tough hill to climb as they face off against the FaZe. OpTic Gaming‘s last tournament showed a lot of promise, and they will be looking to build off of their first two wins. They play against the Dallas Empire where old teammates, C6 (Crimsix), Dashy, and TjHaly will face off on the battlefield.
