UPDATED March 17, 2019: Here’s everything you need to know about CWL Fort Worth 2019. Day 2 results; winners brackets and losers brackets, and what to look forward heading into Championship day.
FINALS: Day 3 of the CWL Fort Worth Open – March 17
Semi-Finals Losers Bracket
1). Team Reciprocity vs Red Reserve
Throughout the series, Dylan and Wuskin have been doing great, and Team Reciprocity only got better as they beat one of the best teams in the league, Gen.G to advance to the Semifinals of the Losers Bracket.
Both teams faced each other at the start of the Pro League where Red Reserve 3-0’d Team Rec. Would Reciprocity get their revenge? Series was tied at the start, 1-1 for the start of the Semi-finals. The teams moved to Gridlock playing Control in Match 3. Both teams exchanged rounds at the start, and Team Rec was looking a lot better than their first match against RR. Reciprocity took game 3 and lead the series 2-1. The next map was Frequency hardpoint, and although the game was quite even, Tec Rec looked to be the better team.
2-0 Lead for Team Reciprocity
Team Rec got up with a quick 2-0 lead. Reciprocity continued their dominance, and Dylan was making highlight reels. It was 4-1 for Rec at one point and RR was on the fences trying to win round 6 which they did. There was a lucky break with Dylan falling off the map leaving it 5v3 for RR in the round which they won. Nerves were showing on both teams, but Reciprocity came back with a solid round, planting the bomb for the round win and puts them up 5-2 against Red Reserve. The last round was all Team Reciprocity as they stayed composed and beat Red Reserve in convincing fashion.
Reciprocity got their revenge and stayed alive at Fort Worth. They are the “game 5 winners” as they’ve been winning game 5’s in their last 3 matches. It was sweet revenge for Wuskin and both brothers hugged at the end to show their sportsmanship.
2). Enigma6 – 1 : 100T – 3
The big story of this match was Priestah not part of the line-up. He was feeling under the weather and not able to continue for the rest of the day. Fero came in to replace Priestah, and as CoD Caster Pacman stated, 100T is losing aggression and Saug power.
Finals Losers Bracket
100T vs Team Reciprocity
In the first map on Arsenal playing hardpoint, both teams were showing that they can be team to move on as 100T looked at one point to be unstoppable, but Team Rec would come back and show that they are the stronger team. The hardpoint changed to mid map which was a hard fought battle. Dylan pulled out his Tempest for Team Rec and just wreaked havoc on 100T, which eventually was enough for them to win the first map 250-243.
Map 2 – Search and Destroy on Gridlock
The next map was Gridlock, playing Search and destroy. Both teams were even at the start, exchanging rounds to have a 1-1 series tie. The SnD matches were flying by, as both teams were going in head first and showcasing some incredible gun battles. But one player took charge and that was Zed from Team Reciprocity who was winning gun battles all around, impressing Clint Evans who was calling the shots as the CoD caster. Rec was up 3-1, but this gave fire to Octane who responded back clutching the next round making it 3-2 for Rec. This didn’t deter Team Rec from their dominance this match as they went on to take the map and lead the series 2-0 as Wuskin beat out Slasher in a 1v1 by reading him perfectly.
Map 3 – Control on Arsenal
With 100 Thieves being down 0-2 in the series, they need to win this map to continue their run at CWL Fort Worth. But right from the beginning, Team Reciprocity set the tone and took the first round holding mid the whole time. 100 Thieves took the 2nd round showing that they still have it to be neck-at-neck with Team Rec. But, 100 Thieves found some hope through Kenny who went into beast mode in the final round, taking the sweep away from Reciprocity.
Map 4 – Seaside Hardpoint
Team Rec was just too strong for 100 Thieves in the end, taking the last map and winning the series 3-1.
Next, we would be seeing Luminosity and Splyce duke it out in the Winners finals.
Finals Winners Bracket
Luminosity vs Splyce
The finals of the Winners Brackets was all Luminosity. They have secured their place in the finals, and Gunless looked ferocious through the entire series. Spylce were heading into this as the favorites considering how well they were doing from the beginning of the tournament as a team, while Luminosity had some challenges from the get-go. However, as the tournament played out, Luminosity became stronger with every game.
Day 2 of the CWL Fort Worth Open – March 16
The start of the day started with the Losers bracket taking center stage. In the first round we saw some shocking results and one of the top tier teams going home. Here’s what happened in the Losers Bracket / Winners Bracket in Day 2 of CWL Fort Worth.
Losers Round 1
Excelerate – 2 : Heretics – 3
100 Thieves – 3 : eUnited – 1
UYU 3 – : Midnight – 0
OpTic Gaming – 3 : Evil Geniuses – 0
The shocker was seeing eUnited go home early, finishing dead last at CWL Fort Worth. As the runner-ups at the CWL Vegas Open, it was quite a surprise not only for eUnited fans, but for CoD fans around the world. Clayster he straight to Twitter to say, “Highs are real highs and lows are real low in CoD. Fuck man.” Clayster was obviously crushed, as the rest of the eUnited squad. No one expected them to leave early, and many fans placed eUnited in the top 3 of the event. Clayster then finished with this.
Even though we’re out, I URGE each and every eU fan to tune into the rest of the matches today and tomorrow. Pick a team and cheer them on for the rest of the tournament, don’t let our early exit stop you from enjoying some of the best cod ever seen

Losers Round 2
Heretics – 3 : Team Envy – 1
Denial Esports – 0 : 100T – 3
Team Rec – 3 : UYU – 2
Optic Gaming – 2 : Gen.G – 3
OpTic vs Gen.G was a match that every CoD fan was looking forward to. The top team from CWL Vegas taking on the current top team in the Pro League. OpTic Gaming and Gen.G were tied after some incredible back and forth gun fights. Match 3 on control was a heart breaker for OpTic as they lost 3 games in a row after being up 2-0 on Seaside. Match 4 was on Hacienda hardpoint, and OpTic fought hard the entire time. The game was fairly even early on, however, OpTic took the lead and held it all the way to the end to tie the series 2-2. OpTic fans were pumped.
“The Almighty Bruce”
OpTic Dashy won that time, and it seemed that OpTic Gaming were on a good role at this point. We then saw another 1v1 against Karma vs Envoy towards the end of the match.
Losers Round 3
Gen.G – 2 : Team Reciprocity – 3
100 Thives – 3 : Heretics – 0

When Temp was asked in the Instant Reaction what he thought about facing Luminosity, he said that they (Spylce) have 3-1 Luminosity early in the event and it they continue to play the way they were playing, they should pull out the win.

CWL Fort Worth Day 1 Standings – Winners Brackets / Losers Brackets
After a great day at the CWL Fort Worth event, we’ve seen some amazing highlight reels, blunders and surprising outcomes. Here’s how the standings look like after day 1.
After all was said and done, the winners bracket consisted of teams that weren’t even considered in the top 8 of the CWL Fort Worth Predictions. Although it’s surprising for most, it’s also a different sight that most fans arent use to seeing as the winners bracket consists of some fresh faces.
In the losers brackets, we have two of the four teams that finished first and second at the last major Call of Duty esports event in Vegas; OpTic Gaming and eUnited.
What to expect heading into Day 2 of Fort Worth
With the losers bracket set, we possibly have an OpTic Gaming vs Midnight scenario if both teams can beat their respected opponents. OpTic Gaming opened up the 2019 Pro League with a loss to Midnight. It’s no secret that OG would like to meet Midnight again to get some sweet revenge, however, it’s not the same Midnight Esports team that beat them on opening night of the Pro League. Nevertheless, OpTic Scump tweeted afterwards saying “I’m heated“, and a rematch between the two teams will dedinitely be an exciting one. 100 Thieves started off CWL Forth Worth sweeping EG 3-0. Many viewers we’re already saying they are contenders for the trophy. However, it was too fast too soon and 100T are in the losers brackets up against the 2nd place team of CWL Vegas. This will be a great match to watch.
In the winners brackets, we have the surprising Denial Esports, who before game 6 of the Pro League were written off as disappointments to the league with their 0-5 record. Nonetheless, we see Denial Esports in the winners bracket. Will they continue proving their critics wrong? It starts with beating Splyce. Team Envy and Red Reserve will probably be one of the matches to mark down on your calendar as both teams have performed exceptional in day 1 of CWL Fort Worth, and it will be interesting how the two play against each other.
CWL Fort Worth 2019: Teams Schedule, Pools, Location, Results.
CWL Fort Worth matches will be live starting Friday, March 15 through various streams. The event will be available on MLG’s website, and other CWL Fort Worth Twitch streams, and through the in-game World League Hub in Black Ops 4.
CWL Fort Worth Pool Draft
The 2019 CWL Fort Worth Pools have been selected, being split into four groups with each one holding four teams. Pool A will have Gen.G, Team Heretics,Denial Esports and UYU. In Pool B, we we have Evil Geniuses, Enigma6, Red Reserve and 100 Thieves. Pool C has Midnight Esports, Splyce, Luminosity and Excelerate Gaming. And the final Pool D will have eUnited, OpTic Gaming, Team Envy and Team Reciprocity. Here’s a look at the CWL Pools.
CWL Fort Worth 2019 will feature a format unlike other LAN events over the past few years for Call of Duty. For this event, teams will be separated into two distinct tournaments. 16 teams from the 2019 Pro League will face each other in a professional tournament for a $325,000 USD prize pool. The remaining teams will be competing in a separate open bracket event for a chance to walk out with $75,000.

The top 16 teams for the main event will be split into four groups. Out of those groups, the top two teams from each pool will continue to the winners bracket for a double-elimination championship bracket. The best open bracket teams will not join the group stage at CWL Fort Worth 2019, unlike prior events. It’s a change that many teams weren’t happy about, as the teams from the CWL Vegas Open who qualified to be in the open bracket had impressive showings and in Call of Duty esports, anything is possible.

We have three subs on our team atm and people are acting like it’s an easy switch. Anyone that runs the Maddox doesn’t usually do it. imagine picking up a new role 4 months into the game lmao. I’m heated. Also our specialist situation is off
