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 striked 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.
First match of the day had Midnight against Team Reciprocity. Team Rec were looking very strong coming into week two. Fans believed Midnight would have a tough time again 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. 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 manage to get the best of Team Rec. Next was Evil Geniuses vs Red Reserve. EG are the only team in the tournament without a win, and things weren’t going to change as Evil Geniuses were sweeped 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 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 game 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 answer 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 lost.
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 lose affect them as they stayed focused and eventually won the next two matches, beating TR and getting their first win of the Pro League. Last match had OpTic against Luminosity. It was a crazu 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 faught 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 competion, 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 Mdnight 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 bad 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 loses.

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 imprssive showing by Gen.G.
Day 2 Results – Feb 5
In Day 2, it proved to be just as interesting as opening 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. Unfortunatly, 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 new commers Midnight playd 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 gun fights, 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 are 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 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. Spylce 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 Spylce are favorites in the group.
Given the placements at the last event in Vegas, and each teams 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.
