CWL Vegas 2018 UPDATE: Top Teams Schedule and Start Time

*UPDATE* Dec.9, 2018: CWL Vegas 2018 recap of yesterday. 

Day 2 of the CWL Vegas Open started off with a few close games across the board. Teams that are favored to win the event came out on top, some with a few sweeps like OpTic Gaming (who’ve proved to be a force not to rekon with), Luminosity and Evil Geniuses.

With an intense atmosphere in the stadium here are the results of Day 2:

1). Evil Geniuses beat UTY 3 to 1, winning Gridlock Hardpoint (250-131), Hacienda SnD (6-2) and Seaside Hardpoint 250-199. UTU got the best of Evil Geniuses on Seaside control where they had a comfortable 3-0 sweep and some fans thought this was the turning point for the team. However, Evil Geniuses came back on Seaside Hardpoint to take the victory.

2). OpTic Gaming beats Pittsburgh Knights, who before this game were doing quite well in the tournament. In the first game on Frequency Hardpoint, Pittsburgh Knights did put out a good fight against OpTic, only loosing to them by 24 points. However, OpTic Gaming Esports stepped up their game and continued to play strong through Arsenal SnD (winning 6-3) and Gridlock Control (3-1). Pittsburgh Knights should keep their head up high as they didn’t completely falter the match, giving some intense moments against the well versed OpTic team.

3). Splyce vs G2 Esports was a great one because prior to this match, there was a lot of questions whether or not G2 Esports prepared well enough for the tournament. After their first match with OpTic, it seemed that they wouldn’t come back with a 3-0 sweep. However, this match proved to be the opposisite. Battling against one of the favorites, G2 Esports took the match to a deciding 5th game after loosing the first two games (Frequency Hardpoint and Payload SnD). They beat Splyce on Arsenal Control and Seaside Hardpoint but fell through on Hacienda SnD.

4). Red Reserve lost to Luminosity 3-1 which showed that they weren’t able to step up to the plate. After the first day of loosing all 3 games, Red Reserve was walking on thin ice. This was a shocker as they were one of the top teams to go to the finals. At least they were able to win one match against Luminosity which was Gridlock Control. Perhaps there can be something positive to take from this tournament, but a lot of questions will come up on why they weren’t able to compete at the highest level.

5). FaZe Clan came back with an impressive win against top Team Envy winning 3 to 2. Some say that it could have gone either way, however, with the final deciding game on Arsenal (Search and Destroy), they beat out Team Envy with a 6-0 sweep propelling them to the next round.

6). Mindfreak continued their down path with the loss to eUnited. Some say this match was lop-sided, however, Mindfreak did come a long way after their first qualifying match against Str8 Rippin where everyone ruled them out. Mindfreak took the first match on Hardpoint (Hacienda) with the final score being a dominant 250 to 80. Many saw this as their rise in the tournament and a turning point. But eUnited wasn’t going to let that happen as they won the next 3 games to beat out Mindfreak (wins on Hacienda Search and Destroy, Seaside Control and Arsenal Hardpoint).

7). Str8 Rippin was impressing many fans and even the cod casters with their dominant win against Mindfreak in the qualifiers. They also didn’t prove so bad on day 1, however, they fell short to Lightning Pandas who won with a convincing 3-1. Str8 Rippin, like Mindfreak won their first match, however, it was a short one and LP could have won that match. The next 3 matches were a wash and LP moves onto the next round.

8). 100 Thieves had a convincing win over Team Reciprocity. Although TR wasn’t one of the favorites and are still new to the scene, they managed to at least get one win over 100 Theives. 100 Thieves has an impressive day 1 winning 2 games and only loosing 1 which was a close call as well. They will be a team not to mess with in the next round.

Dec.8, 2018: CWL Vegas 2018:

It was a hard fought battle through every match. The official first day of the CWL Vegas Open 2018 is done. As already forseen, some teams had a rough start and seem to be distancing themselves as they’re not up to par with the compeition. Lets have a look at what happened on Day 1 of the CWL Vegas Open.

Evil Genuiuses, eUnited and OpTic Gaming are favorites to win the event. And as faired, all did exception on the opening day. They all remain undeated in their pool with 3 wins each. OpTic, Evil and eUnited will look to be advancing flawlessly through the next bracket part.

One team that shocked the fans was Red Reserve. They were finalists many months ago and now are facing elimination as they will need to fight to stay in the tournament after a slow first day.

  3. Team Reciprocity: 1-2 after day 1

CWL Vegas POOL B

One of the teams in Pool B who everyone agreed on getting to the finals was Red Reserve. It was a no brainer since they were finalists in WWII Anahiem Open. However, they lost all their matches yesterday which shocked fans everywhere. The European stronghold fell leaving many questions unanswered. We’ll see what happens today but they are in a very tough spot now in the losers brackets at the CWL Vegas Open.

Luminosity and Evil Geniuses has very strong games yesterday, looking very impressive in their matches. After day 1, both teams have come out at top. We’ll see what happens in today’s matches.

  1. Evil Geniuses: 3-0 after day 1
  2. Luminosity: 2-1 after day 1
  3. UYU: 1-2 after day 1
  4. Red Reserve: 0-3 after day
CWL Vegas POOL C

Pool C is probably the most surprising of them all. The two top Call o Duty teams are both at the bottom of the list. The champions lost to FaZe clan in the first match of the tournament. Envy early on came back against Lightening Pandas, but everything went down hill from there. Team Envy lost to Str8 Rippin who proved to be incredibly strong in the qualifiers. What everyone has been saying as the Pool of death definitely proved o be true. Saturdays scheduling will start soon and although the two top teams are at the bottom of the list, there’s still a lot of gaming to happen in order to put a stamp on the potions.

  1. Lightning Pandas: 2-1 after day 1
  2. Str8 Rippin: 2-1 after day 1
  3. FaZe Clan: 1-2 after day 1
  4. Team Envy: 1-2 after day 1
CWL Vegas POOL D

With all eyes on OpTic Gaming, CWL fans were wondering what was going to happen with them. To no surprise OpTic Gaming dominated their pool with competition in Pool B. There were some close games (example against Splyce), however, OpTic won almost all their matches convincingly. Splyce will be looking to secure a spot in the championships winner bracket by continuing their efforts in today’s games. G2 Esports didn’t look as strong as they are on paper. In their first match against OpTic Gaming, things looked bad right off the get go. There was a few moments of light in game 2, however, with some miscalculations and bad communication, they conceded in a sweep. Here are the standings in the CWL Vegas Pool D:

  1. OpTic Gaming: 3-0 after day 1
  2. Splyce: 2-1 after day 1
  3. Pittsburgh Knights: 1-2 after day 1
  4. G2 Esports: 0-3 after day 1

Dec.7,2018: The CWL Vegas Open 2018

The first day of the CWL Vegas is underway and the tournament is off to a great start. Competition is fierce which has been the theme throughout the day yesterday. Apart from th first match-ups between Mindfreak and Str8 Rippin (Str8 Rippin literally ripping through the matchup), it has been even Steven. Let’s take a look closer to the outcome of the bottom bracket qualifiers.

The Call of Duty World Leage (CWL), a series of Call of Duty Esports tournaments will unveil the schedule and start times for the top teams today.

Despite the open game and loosing to Str8 Rippin, Mindfreak managed to squeeze by. Mindfreak along side the UYU, the Pittsburgh Knights and Str8 Rippin will advance to the pool play in CWL Vegas 2018. The tournament winnings will be $250,000.

Str8 Rippin—Michael “SpaceLy” Schmale, Chance “Maux” Moncivaez, Michael “MajorManiak” Szymaniak, Jared “Nagafen” Harrell, and Colt “Havok” McLendon totally dominated Mindfreak, beating them all 3 games which seemed to be a matchup that was loopsided, as one of the casters said, “I don’t think Mindfreak has won any gun-to-gun battles yet” during gameplay.

The Pittsburgh Knights qualified for the second spot in the pool play. Represetning Pittsbugh Knights: Christopher “Parasite” Duarte, Adam “GodRx” Brown, Andres Lacefield, Casey “Pandur” Romano, and Dylan “Theory” McGee. They managed to beat Team Devine and overtaking Tainted Minds which proved to be a very close series. Although the matches between the two were very close, Pittsburgh Knights came out at top.

UYU ended up beating Team Devine to be the 3rd team to be placed in the pool platy. Represented by Tristan “Spoof” Green, Mehran “Mayhem” Anjomshoa, Dakota “Nova” Williams, Nicholas “Proto” Maldonado, and Cesar “Skyz” Bueno, they absolutly took over in both Hardpoint series to get a 3-1 victory for the qualification.

Mindfreak, represented by Mitchell “BuZZO” Mader, Cody “Excite” Rugolo, Lincoln “Fighta” Ferguson, Luke “Louqa” Rigas, and Conrad “Shockz” Rymarek had a totally different outcome from their earlier match against Str9 Rippin. It seems that they matured quickly enough to sweep Tained Minds to be the last qualifying team for the CWL Vegas 2018 open tournament. Learning from Str8 Rippin after looking all their battles proves they can grow fast within the tournament.

all four teams have been placed in Pool A, B, C and D. Although Imperial, Gone Gaming,. Team Devicen and Tainted mindas aen’t exactly elimited from the CWL Vegas Open, they have a harder shot at playing in the pool play brackets.
