After the first day of intense Call of Duty World League Finals action, CWL fans would get to see an All-Star match with players that they voted for. In the end, Division B won the All-Star match.
Earlier last week, @CODWorldLeague asked CWL fans to vote for their favorite player of each team to play in the Miami All-Star game. Fans had the choice to choose players from the teams that have qualified for the playoffs which included:
- 100 Thieves
- Team Heretics
- Team Reciprocity
- FaZe Clan
- OpTic Gaming
Voting for the Miami All-Star Game presented by @TCL_USA begins today!
Fans will choose one player from each playoff team, while our CWL analysts pick two additional All-Stars.

As the week drew out, the choices started to narrow down, and by the end of the week, the community chose their eight players to compete at the Miami All-Star game. Two additional players were chosen by the CWL analysts.
Two teams were formed, Division A and Division B. Players would be representing the division that they were in during the CWL Pro League season. The players that were chosen to represent their league divisions were:
Division B Win The CWL Miami All-Star Game
The maps that both teams were playing on were not traditional CWL Black Ops 4 maps, except for the final and deciding match on Hacienda. Both teams would play on Grind, Icebreaker, Firing Range and Nuketown; all different maps than fans are used to seeing the pros play on. It was a nice change of scenery for not only the fans but for the players competing.
Throughout the series, the matches were pretty even. Division A won the first match 6-3, but Division B bounced back the next match-winning 6-1., and it was like that till the very end. Division A had a chance to close out the series on Nuke Town with the sniping session, but Division B proved to be too strong, especially with Simp pulling his amazing shots. When things finally got to the end, the match became a little more serious despite it being an All-Star game since the prize of winning 55-inch gaming monitors were on the line. In the end, Division B won the final map, 6-4. Here is the final play:
Friendly Trash Talking From Temp
Jess Brohard interviewed Slasher and Temp from Division B at the end. Here is what they had to say:
“I think the best part about it was Donny yelling out ’55 inch’ the whole time. Literally, every kill we got he would just be yelling, ’55, 55′. – Slasher [100 Thieves]”
The All-Star Game was a nice change of pace for the CWL major, and fans were able to watch some light-hearted action of some of the best the Call of Duty World League has to offer. Day two of the CWL Finals continues today.
