CDL Los Angeles Home Series 2020: Schedule, Teams and Updates


CDL Los Angeles Home Series 2020 Schedule, Teams and Updates

Updating March 8, 2020: Here’s everything you need to know about CDL Los Angeles Home Series this weekend. Eight Call of Duty League esports teams will be competing for a prize pool of $100,000.

Day 2 – Los Angeles Home Series – March 8

This CDL weekend was supposed to answer a lot of questions, and after day 1, many of the lingering questions have been answered. The main question was whether or not OpTic Gaming LA was going to rebound after having two bad results from the two previous events they’ve participated. OGLA was coming into this tournament with a lot of pressure. The CDL casters, Maven and Joe Deluca, both agreed that OGLA had to do something fast or else there were going to be major changes in the roster. Heading into the first match against their counter-parts, LA Guerrillas, some positions were changed, specifically with Dashy and Slasher. Dashy was put back to using an SMG.

In their first match, things were not looking good for OpTic Gaming. The LAG were up 2-0 and things were looking the same for the OGLA. However, some teams perform better under pressure, and OGLA were in a position that was do-or-die. With some valiant efforts from key players, Dashy and Slasher, OpTic Gaming bounced back and turned the match over, winning three in a row and completing the reverse sweep. The much-needed win came, and this was going to be a turning point for OpTic. On the other hand, although the Guerrillas lost a heartbreaker, they found a new star in the replacement Vivid. He was spectacular throughout the series against OpTic and proved he belonged on the team. His gameplay even caught the attention of caster Momo, who said he’s a “fan” of Vivid now. OpTic’s win carried through to their next match against Minnesota where they swept them 3-0 moving into the semi-finals.

The Seattle Surge and New York Subliners were also looking to turn things around in Day 1. While the Subliners weren’t able to do that, losing both their matches, the Seattle Surge showed some life in their last match against the LAG, winning 3-0 and going 1-1 in Day 1. The Empire looked great, apart from their match against the dominant Atlanta FaZe. The Mutineers and Rokkr also went 1-1. Heading into Day 2, we see the Empire against the Mutineers in the knock out stage alongside Rokkr vs Surge. OpTic and FaZe sit in the semi-finals waiting to see who they will play. Here is the complete bracket results from CDL Los Angeles so far:

Day 1 – Los Angeles Home Series – March 7

The Call of Duty League will be in Los Angeles for this weekend. The LA Guerrillas and LA OpTic Gaming will be hosting the two day home series event since Los Angeles has two teams. Both teams having been struggling in the new Call of Duty League and will be looking to turn things around at home.

There will be eight esports teams competing this weekend, with three teams staying home for the weekend. The teams competing are the Atlanta FaZe, Dallas Empire, Minnesota Rokkr, Florida Mutineers, New York Subliners, Los Angeles Guerrillas, Los Angeles OpTic Gaming and Seattle Surge. The Toronto Ultra, Paris Legion, London Royal Ravens and Huntsmen are all staying home for this event. Currently, this is how the Call of Duty League leaderboards looks after two home series:

OpTic Gaming LA will be looking for their first win in the CDL. Considered as one of the best teams coming into the inaugural season, they have underperformed considering who is in their line-up. Their first match up is against their co-hosts, Guerrillas who have also been struggling, however, had better results then OGLA. The Seattle Surge and New York Subliners will also be back in action after their schedules had them missing out the Atlanta Home Series. Both teams, like OpTic Gaming LA, have great rosters but have been under-performing. Specifically, the Seattle Surge that consists of one of the biggest names in Call of Duty esports history, Karma. The Surge also have players that have won many titles and MVPs which has left Seattle’s fans scratching their heads as to why the team has been under-performing. The Subliners had had their fair share of heartbreaks as they dropped a pivotal match against the Royal Ravens in a reverse sweep which seemed to have set the tone for the rest of their games in Minnesota. If the Surge and Subliners can get a win in their first match, things can turn around in a snap of a finger.

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

Here is how the Pro League Playoffs Winner Brackets look like

CDL Los Angeles Format Home Series 2020
@CODLeague

The big question coming into this event will be the teams that are looking to shift directions; OpTic Gaming, Subliners, Surge and even the Guerrillas. It’s an important event for all those teams as they sit at the bottom part of the CDL leaderboards. Dallas Empire had their own struggles but have broken out of their cage in the last event in Atlanta only to lose to Chicago Huntmens, their Achilles heel. Both Minnesota and Florida have been solid since the start of the CDL, with Minnesota barely missing out of the finals in Atlanta, and the Mutineers making it to the finals only to lose to the FaZe. Given that anything can happen in the CDL, another major question is about the domination of the Atlanta FaZe. Can they continue at the rate their at and going through their competition? The only scare that the FaZe had was their semi-final match against the Minnesota Rokkr who were up 2-0. But the FaZe came back in an impressive reverse sweep. That match told CDL fans that FaZe can be beaten, and will Minnesota have their revenge in this tournament?
