Updated July 7, 2019: Call of Duty World League – Here is everything you need to know about the CWL Pro League 2019 Season. From weekly updates, to match break down and stats, be sure to check back as this page for updates.
Week 12 – July 1st to July 5th (Cross-Division)
The final week of the 2019 CWL Pro League Season has wrapped up. The CWL season started on February 4th, and fans have seen many incredible stories and funny ones unfold. From the Clash of the CWL Twins to Midnight Esports upsetting OpTic Gaming on the opening day 3-0. Or how about the time esports host Jess Brohard was thrown off during an interview after not getting a fist bump? Even the CWL Majors saw it’s fair share of amazing stories such as Luminosity Gaming coming out of nowhere and winning CWL Fort Worth, to 100 Thieves winning their first CoD esports title.
The season has passed through very fast, and with the last week in play fans were wondering if there could be any additional stories written for 2019. Cross-division play was still in effect in the last week. Fans on Call of duty esports Reddit page has stated that this cross-division had the toughest competition with teams like OpTic Gaming, Gen.G, the surprising Elevate, and the fresh Team Envy. Let’s take a look at what happened in the last week of the CWL Pro League 2019.
- Elevate 1 : Midnight 3
- Reciprocity 0 : eUnited 3
- OpTic Gaming 3 : Heretics 0
- Team Envy 0 : Gen.G 3
- Heretics 0 : Midnight 3
- OpTic Gaming 3 : Elevate 0
- Reciprocity 3 : Team Envy 2
- eUnited 2 : Gen.G 3
- Gen.G 3 : Elevate 1
- Heretics 1 : Reciprocity 3
- Midnight 0 : eUnited 3
- Team Envy 3 : OpTic Gaming 0
- Elevate 1 : Reciprocity 3
- Midnight 3 : Team Envy 1
- Gen.G 3 : Heretics 0
- eUnited 3 : OpTic Gaming 1
After week 12, Gen.G were the clear winners, winning all their games in convincing fashion. eUnited and Midnight esports come in 2nd losing only 1 game in the week. Surprisingly, OpTic Gaming started off strong winning their first two games, however, the dropped their last two games which is uncharacteristic of the group. OG actually had a lucky win against Elevate when Wailers forgot to check the defuse, otherwise OpTic would have gone 1-3 for the first time this season. Team Envy went 1-3 in the week. However, on paper they have a solid lineup with Gunless as the new addition to the team, and shouldn’t be written off.
Here’s how the week 12 CWL Leaderboard standings look like:
In Divison A, Here are the teams that have qualified for the Pro League Playoffs:
- OpTic Gaming
- FaZe Clan
In Division B, the teams that qualified are:
- 100 Thieves
As the final week wrapped up, everyone will now have their focus on the CWL Championships. We’ll keep you posted with any updates of the major event.

Week 11 – June 24st to June 27th (Cross-Division)
A week after CWL Anaheim, the Pro League resumed with cross-division play. There are still many questions looming for a certain number of teams, while others are focused on continuing their domination. We would see Units (formerly Denial Esports) have their first take in the Pro League.
Some of the main questions were on Luminosity Gaming and Splyce, who has been struggling recently. As well, would 100 Thieves continue their domination in the Call of Duty World League? Let’s take a closer look at the results for week 11.
- Units 3 : UYU 1
- Enigma6 1 : Luminosity 3
- Splyce 2 : FaZe Clan 3
- 100 Thieves 2 : Evil Geniuses 3
- UYU 1 : Enigma6 3
- Luminosity 3: Units 0
- FaZe Clan 0 : 100 Thieves 3
- Evil Geniuses 1 : Splyce 3
- Enigma6 0 : FaZe Clan 3
- Units 2 : Evil Geniuses 3
- UYU 0 : Splyce 3
- Luminosity 2 : 100 Thieves 3
- FaZe Clan 2 : Units 3
- Evil Geniuses 2 : Enigma 3
- 100 Thieves 3: UYU 0
- Splyce 0 : Luminosity 3
After week 11, Luminosity fans finally saw some life again from their team after a roster change. LG went 3-1 with their new line-up, and their only loss comes from 100 Thieves which the final series score was 3-2; so it wasn’t a blow off. This is the biggest improvement the league has seen from LG since they won CWL Fort Worth. 100 Thieves has a huge upset by the likes of Evil Geniuses, who beat the fresh tournament champs 3-2. However, 100 Thieves cruised back to control and finish 2nd in their division.
Splyce showed decent play after a shakeup in their line-up. The team went 2-2, which isn’t fantastic by their standards, but still very good considering their results at Anaheim. Units seemed to have a great week considering they changed their name, going 2-2 in week 11. Enigma6 also had a decent week going 2-2. UYU was the weakest team in week 11, going 0-4. Other than UYU, it seems that every team performed decent, with LG showing the most improvement out of all the teams.
Here’s the standings after week 11:
Week 12 resumes on July 1st with the continuation of cross-division play.
CWL Anaheim – June 14-16
100 Thieves are the CWL Anaheim Champions beating Gen.G 3-1. 100 Thieves was the only team to go undefeated in the tournament and beat Gen.G all three times they faced them. Many of the favorites made it to Championship Sunday including FaZe Clan, eUnited, and Enigma6. OpTic Gaming made it to Championship Sunday as well, but they fell short in the Losers Bracket Finals to Gen.G who beat them 3-2. Prior to that game, OpTic lost to 100 Thieves earlier on, which shown signs that perhaps the team was going to have some trouble leading to Sunday, but no one predicted that OG would lose to Gen.G in the Losers Brackets Finals. eUnited’s exit at CWL Anaheim on Sunday was also a shock as many picked them to be in the finals given their record in the regular season.
The regular season picks up again in a week. By then, we might see some line-up changes
RUN. IT. UP. 🏃♂️💨🆙

Week 10 – June 3rd to June 6th
The last week before CWL Anaheim showcased Divison B. Last week we saw 100 Thieves continuing their path of destruction, and going a perfect 3-0, showing everyone that London was not a fluke. eUnited also finished at the top with 100T going 3-0. Many European fans were wondering if Heretics were going to step up after going 0-3 in their return from London. Heretics were considered one of the favorites to win their Divison after having such a strong start to the Pro League. But in recent weeks the team lost their touch and are trying to gain their form once again.
Splyce had one of their worst weeks in the Pro League, going 1-3. The team seemed to have lost their form and were looking to go positive in Week 10. Elevate was one of the surprising teams in week 9 as they just entered the Pro League, taking Excelerate’s spot. The team looked impressive at CWL London and had a stellar start last week. Would they continue their winning streak? Lastly, many eyes are on Denial and Envy to turn things around, but the big question remained; are they capable?
Let’s have a look at how the week went.
- Elevate 2 : Heretics 3
- 100 Thieves 0 : eUnited 3
- Denial Esports 2 : Heretics 3
- Elevate 2 : eUnited 3
- Enigma6 2 : 100 Thieves 3
- Team Envy 1 : Splyce 3
- Elevate 0 : 100 Thieves 3
- Denial Esports 1 : eUnited 3
- Heretics 1 : Splyce 3
- Team Envy 0 : Enigma6 3
- Enigma6 2 : Denial Esports 3
- Elevate 3 : Team Envy 2
- eUnited 3 : Heretics 2
- 100 Thieves 3 : Splyce 0
— Call of Duty World League (@CODWorldLeague) June 8, 2019
eUnited shocked 100 Thieves, beating them 3-0. Although no one was writing eUnited off against 100T, getting a 3-0 is quite impressive, especially since 100 Thieves were on a hot streak since London. Both teams clinched a Playoff spot with eUnited finishing in 1st place. Heretics faired better this week breaking even at 2-2, and only losing their last match 3-2 to eUnited. Elevate finally slowed down and broke their winning streak losing their first three matches; going 1-3.
Denial and Team Envy both continued their downward spiral, leaving many wondering what will be their next move as there doesn’t seem to be signs of improvement for either team. Perhaps a roster shakeup is on the way.
Here’s how the leaderboards look like after week 10.
Week 9 – May 27th to May 30th CWL Matches
Last week we saw Divison A conclude their matches over two weeks. Week 9 would have Division B start their matches for the next two weeks. 100 Thieves just came off their first CoD major tournament win at CWL London. The team had a stellar tournament, cruising to the finals and only losing once to OpTic Gaming. How would they fair in their return after a two-week break? Other tops teams to consider are eUnited, Splyce and Heretics. EUnited lost to 100 Thieves and finished 2nd at CWL London, a huge improvement comparing to their result at Fort Worth. With the addition of Simp to the line-up, eUnited have found their game again.
Heretics and Splyce had decent showings at CWL London, but many Splyce fans would say they weren’t happy with the team’s results. Team Envy sadly dropped the ball in their last match at the tournament. The team looked in great form leading up to their last match and then quickly fell through. Like FaZe Clan in the last two weeks, many CWL fans were wondering how Elevate would do in their first week of the CWL Pro League. Let’s find out what happened.
- Team Envy 2 : Denial Esports 3
- Enigma6 0 : Splyce 3
- Denial Esports 1 : 100 Thieves 3
- Splyce 2 : Elevate 3
- Heretics 1 : Team Envy 3
- eUnited 3 : Enigma6 2
- Denial Esports 1 : Elevate 3
- Heretics 2 : Enigma6 3
- Splyce 1 : eUnited 3
- 100 Thieves 3 : Team Envy 0
- Enigma6 2 : Elevate 3
- Splyce 1 : Denial Esports 3
- 100 Thieves 3 : Heretics 1
- eUnited 3 : Team Envy 1
After week 9 here’s how the standings look:
Week 8 – May 20th to May 23rd CWL Matches
The continuation of the Pro League in week 8 has cleared some trailing questions, however, raising new ones. It was clear that after week 7 when teams returned from London, that OpTic Gaming has made some adjustments to their game and finished week 7 as the league leaders. FaZe Clan, who switched spots with Red Reserve has made a mark in the Pro League showing everyone that they are top contenders. Gen.G, who were one of the best teams in the league before going to London have lost their magic touch, falling to 1-3 in week 7. Luminosity continued their struggles, losing all their matches in wee7, prompting for the team to answer some hard questions from fans. What would we see in week 8 of the CWL Pro League? Let’s find out what happened.
- Evil Geniuses 3 : Midnight 1
- Reciprocity 3 : Luminosity 1
- Midnight 0 : Reciprocity 3
- OpTic Gaming 3 : Evil Geniuses 0
- UYU 3 : Luminosity 1
- FaZe Clan 3 : Gen.G 1
- FaZe Clan 3 : Evil Geniuses 2
- UYU 2 : Reciprocity 3
- Midnight 0 : OpTic Gaming 3
- Gen.G 3 : Luminosity 1
- FaZe Clan 3 : Mightnight 1
- Evil Geniuses 2 : Reciprocity 3
- Gen.G 2 : UYU 3
- Luminosity 0 : OpTic Gaming 3
The last match of the week featured the unstoppable OpTic Gaming vs the struggling Luminosity Gaming. Many fans were scratching their heads as to what was happening in the Luminosity camp. On paper, the team is full of all-stars, and they won CWL Fort Worth which was the turning point for the team, or so we thought. Week 8 proved to be brutal for LG as they lost 3 games in a row, extending their losing streak to six, and now having to playing OpTic Gaming who have been looking impressive.

There was a surprising turn of events which had Gunless step out of the last match, leaving LG’s coach, Ricky, to step in. At this point, everyone was writing off LG off, including the CWL casters with the exception of Nameless. Throughout the match, it looked like LG was pretty even with OpTic. In the first match, LG just lost by two hardpoint points (250-248). In the second match, FormaL went into beast mode against OpTic, however, still conceding in the end. The last match went in OG’s favor by one round. If anything, LG could take some positives from the last match in hopes of improving together as a team. However, with the long break till the 24th of June when teams return to the Pro League, we have a feeling that there will be a shake-up in the roster. But we’ll need to wait to find out.
Here’s how the standings look after week 8.
Week 7 – May 13th to May 16th CWL Matches
Earlier in the month, teams were competing at CWL London. After a three day Major event, 100 Thieves came out on top as the champions, beating out eUnited 3-1, with the MVP of the tournament being Octane. It was an exciting tournament, and teams had one week off before continuing the CWL season.
Just before the season took a break for London, Gen.G and Team Heretics were leading their divisions with OpTic Gaming and eUnited right behind them. We’ve seen some improvements from teams like 100 Thieves and Team Envy, making a case that their one of the top teams in the league. The last match of week 6 happened to be the dream match everyone was waiting for; OpTic Gaming vs 100 Thieves. It took nearly half a year for the two teams to finally meet each other, and when they finally did everyone was rather disappointed. 100 Thieves beat OG 3-0, and although 100 Thieve fans were happy with the results, overall fans were expecting a closer battle between the two.
Another major change that happened after week 6 ended was with Red Reserve. The team disbanded due to supposed financial issues and a new company direction. Since the team was dropping out of the CWL Pro League, many fans were wondering who was going to acquire RR’s spot in the league. The team that made it’s way back into the Pro League was FaZe Clan, who also acquired “Skrapz” from Red Reserve. FaZe Clan officially entered the CWL Pro League with ZooMaa, Skrapz, Cellium, Asim, and Zer0. Skrapz was tweeting hints about the situation, and many taking them as a joke. However, he announced he was playing for FaZe Clan and that Red Reserve would be no more. Additionally, another newcomer is Elevate, who acquired Excelerate Gaming.
FaZe Clan has officially re-entered the @CODWorldLeague with a roster of ZooMaa, Cellium, Asim, Skrapz, and Zer0 ✍️

Heading into week 7 of the Call of Duty World League, how would the new kids on the block, FaZe Clan, perform? Would we see a revival from teams like Denial Esports and Evil Geniuses? How Would OpTic Gaming do after losing a heart breaker at CWL London? Here are the scores from week 7.
- UYU 0 : FaZe Clan 3
- OpTic Gaming 3 : Gen.G 2
- Evil Geniuses 3 : UYU 1
- Gen.G 3 : Midnight Esports 0
- Reciprocity 1 : OpTic Gaming 3
- Luminosity 0 : FaZe Clan 3
- UYU 2: Midnight 3
- FaZe Clan 2 : OpTic Gaming 3
- Gen.G 2 : Reciprocity 3
- Luminosity 1 : Evil Geniuses 3
- Reciprocity 0 : FaZe Clan 3
- Evil Geniuses 3 : Gen.G 0
- Midnight 3 : Luminosity 0
- OpTic Gaming 3 : UYU 1
Evil Geniuses were the clear winners in week 7, as they won all their games, sending a message to everyone that changes were made in the team and that they will be a team to look out for. OpTic Gaming also sealed the week going 4-0, in a week filled with emotions and uncertainty as to the organization’s fate. ESPN reported that in January, Texas Esports was selling a majority stake in OpTic Gaming and Houston Outlaws for $150 million. The deadline for the sale is May 31st, with OpTic Gaming’s official Reddit page keeping an eye on all the official and unofficial news of the sale.
Luminosity Gaming were the biggest losers of week 7, going 0-3. Just before the week 6 break, Luminosity was also struggling, having a hard time against their opponents. The team filled with all-star players just couldn’t get anything going. They continued their disappointment in week 7 after falling out of CWL London in the first elimination stage. Gen.G surprisingly went 1-3 in week 7, falling down to second place in Division A. Week 7 finished with OpTic Gaming on top with 11 wins and 4 loses.
GGs uyu. Won 3-1 and finished with a 4-0 week. Now advancing to 11-4 and have first seed 🙂

After week 7, here’s how the standings look like:
Week 6 – April 1st to April 4th CWL Matches
Week 6 saw the second group of teams playing each other in the CWL cross-division play. Gen.G, Denial, Midnight, Splyce, Enigma, OpTic, Reciprocity and 100 Thieves were going have their time to play against each other. Many fans were looking forward to seeing Gen.G play Splyce since they were eliminated at CWL Fort Worth by Splyce. Just before the regular division play went to break for Fort Worth, Denial was on a hot streak. After being criticized by the CWL panel, Denial broke through in their last two games before the break beating two very good teams. Fans of Denial Esports were wondering if they were going to continue their hot streak.

Splyce were runners up at CWL Fort Worth. Although the final game wasn’t close with Luminosity beating them 3-1, Splyce overall had a very decent run in the tournament. How were they going to respond coming back to cross-divisional play? Midnight was looking to prove everyone wrong that the major changes from Rostermania were meant to improve the team. Team Reciprocity had a very strong showing at Fort Worth and was looking to continue their run in week 6. Enigma6 had some decent games at Fort Worth and at some points looked very strong. They would be looking to finally get out of the bottom part of the leaderboard. OpTic Gaming would finally be a complete team with Dashy back on board. How were they going to fair knowing that Fort Worth wasn’t their best showing? Many questions, lots of answers. Let’s find out what happened.
- Denial Esports 1 : Gen.G 3
- Midnight 1 : Splyce 3

The league is now on another break while teams get prepared for CWL London. Stayed tuned for updates in the Pro League after CWL London.
Week 5 – March 25th to March 28th CWL Matches
The pro league continued in week 5 in cross-divisional play. Division A teams would play Division B teams for the first time this season. It was a new addition to the format of the league, which just saw teams compete against teams in their own division. This new layout makes the league more interesting in terms of seeing all the different combinations and not waiting until the majors.
Luminosity comes off as the CWL Fort Worth champions and was on a hot streak. Would they continue to their hot streak? eUnited had a disastrous showing at Fort Worth. Many fans were wondering how they were going to turn things around after that. The only thing eUnited could do was make a major roster change. Fans saw JKap move to Sub and Simp switching to the starting lineup in eUnited. How would the team adapt to the change? Would the weaker teams start pulling through this week?

WEEK 5 – CROSS-DIVISION MATCHES
- UYU 3 : Heretics 0
- Excelerate GG 2 : Red Reserve 3
- Team Envy 3 : Luminosity 2
- Evil Geniuses 2 : eUnited 3
In the first day, we saw strong showings from teams that were at the lower part of the leaderboards such as UYU, Team Envy, and Evil Geniuses. eUnited just beat out Evil Geniuses, the move with Simp proved to be a great switch. Red Reserve continued strong as they were able to beat out the hungry Excelerate team. Luminosity lost a tight one against Team Envy, who, at the break was one of the best teams. Here’s how the rest of the week looked like.
- Heretics 3 : Evil Geniuses 2
- eUnited 3 : UYU 0
- Luminosity 3 : Excelerate GG 2
- Red Reserve 2 : Team Envy 3
- Red Reserve 0 : Heretics 3
- Excelerate GG 3 : UYU 0
- Team Envy 1 : Evil Geniuses 3
- Luminosity 3 : eUnited 2
- UYU 0 : Team Envy 3
- Evil Geniuses 0 : Excelerate GG 3
- eUnited 3 : Red Reserve 2
- Heretics 3 : Luminosity 2
eUnited showed that their roster change was needed as they won 3 out of their 4 games. Luminosity, Heretics and Team Envy continued to win the necessary games. UYU, Evil Geniuses, Red Reserve and Excelerate continued having difficulty closing out games and continue to stay at the bottom of the leaderboards. Stay tuned for week 6.
Heading into Week 5 – What to Look For
CWL Fort Worth was a huge success. We saw new Champions, new heroes, and shocking outcomes. One of the shockers were eUnited finishing in the last place, and OpTic Gaming bowing out on Day 2 of the tournament. Both teams were huge favorites to win the event since they placed 1st and 2nd at Vegas. But unfortunately, they came up short in the end. We saw new teams emerge as contenders such as Team Reciprocity and Gen.G. But the biggest story was Luminosity Gaming and their continued dominance since the break of the pro league. Luminosity Gaming beat Splyce 3-1 to grab the teams first major CWL title. Gunless won MVP of the tournament making it his 3rd.
Looking into the continuation of the Pro League, we will be keeping an eye on the teams who made role changes such as OpTic Gaming’s Karma and TJHaly switch. eUnited promoted their sub, Simp, and moved JKap to substitute. This sparked outrage on social media, leaving many wondering what would be JKap’s future with the organization. Luminosity Gaming will be looking to continue their hot streak of three games and finally breaking even on the leaderboards. Most of the teams who made changes during Rostermania will be going into competition with no additional changes. Stay tuned for updates.
CWL Pro League Week 4 (Feb 25 – Feb 28)
What seemed to be crystal clear in the 3rd week of the Pro League (start of Division B), seemed to be turned upside down after week 3.

CWL Pro League Week 3 (Feb 18 – Feb 21)
Week 3 of the Pro league brought some new exciting teams into the picture, with Heretics taking the lead at the top with 4 wins and 0 loses. CoD Caster Benson made a bold prediction at the beginning of Week 3, saying that if Heretics was able to pull off a win against eUnited, that they would be finishing the week 4-0.
— Call of Duty World League (@CODWorldLeague) February 18, 2019
Benson was dead on with his prediction. Many fans were excited to see the Spanish team do so well, and bring some much-needed competition from Europe. As Heretics cruised through the 3rd week, so did Splyce with convincing wins over their opponents. Splyce finished the 3rd week with a 3-0 record and placing 2nd on the leaderboards. After their first day loss, eUnited fought back with 3 impressive wins placing them 3rd on the leaderboards after week 3.

CWL Pro League Week 2 (Feb 11 – Feb 14)
After an exciting opening week to the Call of Duty World League 2019 season, week 2 didn’t leave anything behind. Midnight was entering the week with a perfect record, and many were wondering if they were going to keep their perfect record going. Luminosity Gaming game out of the opening week with no wins. Being one of the four teams to clinch the CWL 2019 season, it was a shocker for not only Luminosity Gaming fans but CoD competitive fans around the world. UYU and Evil Geniuses were looking to turn things around this week. OpTic Gaming looking to continue their winning streak after dropping the first game of the season to Midnight. Let’s see what happened during the week.
Evil Geniuses and UYU kicked things off, both trying to turn their teams around in a positive direction. After a strong start with Evil, UYU turned things around and beat Evil Geniuses three matches in a row to take the series. Luminosity was looking for their first win, playing Gen G. Things looked good for Luminosity Gaming as they took the first map 250-147. Gen G struck back with a win in SnD, but Luminosity responded with a win on Control, going up 2-1 in the series. Things looked like they were finally going to turn around for LG. Gen G wasn’t going to let that happen, winning the next two matches and beating Luminosity 3-2.
The first match of the day had Midnight against Team Reciprocity. Team Rec was looking very strong coming into week two. Fans believed Midnight would have a tough time against them, which they did. The match went to game 5 and Team Reciprocity pulled through to give Midnight their first lost. Midnight finally showed they were human. The next match had the last undefeated team, Gen G against UYU. Gen G proved to be too strong against UYU, only falling down one match, and taking the series 3-1 convincingly. Gen G improved to a 5-0 record, becoming the new leaders in Divison A.
Next up was OpTic against the strong Red Reserve. OpTic Gaming ended up dropping one match in their 3-1 win over Red Reserve. TJHaly looked incredibly good in all the matches, creating highlight reels. The last match of the day had Evil Geniuses against the winless Luminosity Gaming. Everyone was cheering Luminosity on to get their first win, and they did just that, finally beating out their competition in 5 to get their first win.
Team Reciprocity and UYU both started off the day looking to get to 500 as each team was 2-3. It was a hard fought battle and could have gone either way, but UYU manages to get the best of Team Rec. Next was Evil Geniuses vs Red Reserve. EG is the only team in the tournament without a win, and things weren’t going to change as Evil Geniuses were swept 3-0 in the series. Alarming questions started to rise as Evil Geniuses were not able to compete in that match.
Midnight and Luminosity we’re next, with Luminosity handing Midnight their first lost on hardpoint, opening up with a match with a 1-0 lead of the hot new CWL team. Things continued to go well for Luminosity. Was this the game that was going to turn the team around? It was, as they pull a sweep against the hot Midnight, 3-0 for the first of the CWL. The last match was Gen G against OpTic Gaming. This was going to be the match everyone was waiting for. And it didn’t disappoint. Gen G won the first map going up 1-0. Gen G continued to show their strength as they won the second match in Search and Destroy, taking a 2-0 series lead over OG. Both teams exchanged some matches with OpTic tying things up. However, it was Gen G who prevailed with their perfect record going 6-0.
After a shocking day at the CWL Pro League, the day started off with Red Reserve against UYU. Red Reserve won two straight games and tried to sweep UYU. But UYU fought back, leading in match 3. However, Red Reserve had an impressive comeback to sweep UYU. The next match was the undefeated Gen G against Midnight. Even though Midnight lost their last two games, Gen G had to keep their focus intact. Things looked good in the first match, with Midnight beating Gen G in Hardpoint 250-123 convincingly. But Gen G answers back and beat Midnight 6-1 in SnD. With the series tied 1-1, it was Midnight who broke through, winning control 3-1 and taking the series lead 2-1. Midnight continued strong and eventually took the last map, beating Gen G and giving them their first loss.
The next match was Evil Geniuses against Team Reciprocity. Was EG finally going to get their first win? EG started off with a win on seaside in Hardpoint. Team Reciprocity came back in SnD with a clean sweep tying things 1-1. EG wasn’t going to let that loss affect them as they stayed focused and eventually won the next two matches, beating TR and getting their first win of the Pro League. The last match had OpTic against Luminosity. It was a crazy turn of events, having Optic up by two games looking for the sweep, but Luminosity Gaming had different intentions, evening the series at 2-2 with some hard fought battles. Then in the deciding game 5, Luminosity being down 4 to 3 in SnD came back to win and give OpTic Gaming a reverse sweep.
Here are the standings after week 2:
Day 4 Results
Midnight VS UYU
Closing out the first week of the CWL Pro League 2019 season saw Midnight going against UYU; both teams new in the Pro League. Midnight won the first match on Hardpoint (250-185) to take the lead. The second match was all Midnight as they won 6-2 in Search and Destroy. Midnight continued to be too strong for the competition, beating UYU in Control and sweeping them 3-0 in the series. Out of four games, Midnight managed to sweep 3 teams and win a close one against Red Reserve. But Midnight Esports has proven that they are a force to be reckoned with.

OpTic Gaming vs Team Reciprocity
The second match had OpTic Gaming playing Team Reciprocity. The matches were close, with OpTic Gaming coming back in the first match on Hardpoint, and Team Reciprocity evening things on SnD the next match. In the second match, Team Reciprocity stormed back to win the first round of Control, showing that they are able to play with the Titans. However, this seemed to agitate OpTic Gaming as they came back and beat TR in 3 straight to take Control and lead the series 2-1. In the end, OpTic Gaming proved to be the better team as they won Hardpoint easily, beating Team Reciprocity 3-1 in the series and moving to 3 wins and 1 loss.
Red Reserve VS Luminosity Gaming
The 3rd match of the day had Red Reserve going up against the Luminosity who have yet to register a win. Things looked like they were going to continue badly for Luminosity as Red Reserve takes the first match of Hardpoint, 250-150. Things at this point are looking serious for Luminosity as they dropped the next match 6-1 in Search and Destroy, a mode that they consider to be really good at. With the two straight wins, Red Reserve proved to be too much for Luminosity came back in the 3rd match, but fell short in the 4th match, dropping 3 games in the week and going 0-3, while Red Reserve improved to two wins and two losses.

Gen VS Evil Geniuses
The last match of the day had the fresh Gen.G against Evil Geniuses. EG was on a serious path as they were looking to win their first map of the CWL Pro League 2019, which they did with a victory against Gen.G in Hardpoint 250-210. But the next match turned out differently, as Gen.G bounced back showing EG that maybe the first match was a fluke. Gen.G continued with their strong play as they took Control and lead the series 2-1. They continued their dominance over EG as they won the last match, going 3-0 for the end of the first week of the CWL Pro League 2019. An impressive showing by Gen.G.
Day 2 Results – Feb 5
In Day 2, it proved to be just as interesting as opening day. With OpTic Gaming and Reciprocity losing their opening matches, fans were wondering how they were going to bounce back. On the other side of things, Midnight came off one of the most convincing wins for any new team in the CWL Pro League. The question was, can they continue their wrath. Below are the results of the matches from Day 2 of the pro league.
- Gen.G VS Red Reserve – Red Reserve brought a good fight, but Gen.G was too strong in the end, winning the series 3 to 1.
- Midnight VS Evil Geniuses – The curious case of Midnight was on show again, and they proved to be just as lethal as opening day, sweeping Evil geniuses 3-0.
- UYU VS OpTic Gaming – OpTic Gaming came back with a close victory, 3-2 in the series. Bring up by 2 games and letting UYU win the next two was concerning, but they pulled it off in the end.
- Luminosity VS Reciprocity – Luminosity Gaming was favorites in this division, and fans were going to see their first match on Day 2. Unfortunately, Luminosity had a tough time against Reciprocity, and after battling back from being down 2, they lost the final game 5. Reciprocity wins 3-2.
Opening Day of the CWL Pro League – Feb 4
The opening day was a memorable one. Many predictions and expectations fell through as the CoD community experienced some shocking events.
To start the day off, Reciprocity played Red Reserve for the first match of league play, and newcomers Midnight played against the Vegas Open champions, OpTic Gaming. The first game with RR and Rec didn’t go as expected. Fans and community members were expecting Reciprocity to come on top over Red Reserve for many reasons, specifically, because they were seeded high than RR in the standings. However, Red Reserve had a different plan in mind and came out blazing. Through all three matches, Red Reserve took control and won key gunfights, especially coming from RR’s players Skrapz and Zer0, sweeping Reciprocity 3-0.
Midnight Versus OpTic Gaming
In the other match, everyone was thinking that it was going to be a walk in the park for OpTic Gaming considering they just came off as the champions at the CWL Vegas Open, and the fact that Midnight is the new players in the league. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Midnight came out blazing, taking advantage of an OpTic Gaming team that didn’t have all their players; Dashy had issues getting to the event and had to be replaced by ZooMaa. Although ZooMaa is a world-class player, Midnight stood strong and swept OpTic Gaming 3-0, shocking the world.
In Division A, Red Reserve and Midnight lead the top with one win and zero loses, while OpTic Gaming and Reciprocity are at the bottom for the time being.

CWL Pro League 2019 Teams
Jan. 20, 2019 – The CWL Pro League 2019 season is underway, with the Black Ops 4 qualifiers ending yesterday. The divisions were finalized yesterday as the Qualifiers wrapped up in existing fashion. There will be two divisions, A and B consisting of 16 top teams in the Call of Duty world.
What an incredible five days at the #CWLPS4 Pro League Qualifier. Congratulations again to the 12 teams that made it into the Pro League, and thank you to everyone that tuned in! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/htRjS5La9V
— Call of Duty World League (@CODWorldLeague) January 21, 2019
The Pro League starts February 4 and goes all the way up to July 5 where teams will be battling each other at the MLG Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
Almost all matches will be played in Columbus except for the Pro League Playoffs.
OpTic Gaming and Luminosity are at the top of the group due to their dominant showing at the CWL Vegas Open. OpTic Gaming finished 1st place at the event while Luminosity Gaming finished 4th. Their placements at the Vegas Open guaranteed their spot in the CWL Pro League 2019 season. The other remaining teams are:
- Midnight Esports
- Evil Geniuses
- Team Reciprocity
- Team Space
- Red Reserve
Out of the six teams that made it into the Pro League from the recent Qualifiers; five of them are returning to the big stage which includes Evil Geniuses, Team Reciprocity, UYU, and Red Reserve. All had decent showings at the CWL Vegas with ME finishing 37th, UYU finishing 14th, RR placing 12th, TR placing 10th and EG placing 7th. the only team that’s new to the scene is Team Space, who have shown impressive results in the qualifiers.
Out of all the teams in Division A, OpTic Gaming just came out on top at the CWL Vegas Open finishing 1st in the tournament. However, Evil Geniuses are the Call of Duty World League Championship 2018 champions and have the ability to steal top spot in this Division. But, EG didn’t finish well at Vegas and will be looking to turn things around, as OpTic Gaming did the last event. Red Reserve is a solid team that can’t be overlooked, placing 2nd and third at the Anaheim Open 2018 and Pro League Stage 2.
eUnited and Splyce are at the top of the group due to their placements at the CWL Vegas Open. eUnited finished 2st place at Vegas while Splyce finished 3rd. Both teams had strong showings at the last event, and are favorites to top Division B. The other remaining teams are:
- Team Envy
- 100 Thieves
- Team Heretics
All of the remaining six teams are returning from the Vegas Open. All had decent showings at the CWL Vegas with TE finishing 9th, 100 Thieves finishing 11th, ExcelerateGG placing 17th, TH placing 18th, OT placing 25th and Enigma6 at 30th. Although these places weren’t as competitive as Division A, these teams did well in the Qualifiers and will be bringing some much-needed competition to the group.
eUnited has decent showings in the last 5 events, specifically 2nd place in Vegas, 4th place at the 2019 Championships and 3rd place at the Seattle 2018 Open. Splyce recently made headway by finishing 3rd at Vegas. They were the only team to go up 2-0 on OpTic Gaming, however, conceding 3 matches in a row to lose to OG. Both eUnited and Splyce are favorites in the group.
Given the placements at the last event in Vegas, and each team’s historic performance, Division A proves to be highly competitive and it won’t be an easy road for the two clinched teams; OpTic and Lumin. Division B looks to be a little clearer, however, nothing is written in stone and no team should be written off.
