Another week of action in the Call of Duty World League for Call of Duty®: Black Ops III has concluded, which means that it is time for an updated edition of GAMURS’s power rankings for the North American teams participating in this league.
Just as a reminder, the point system for these power rankings will be calculated based on the rankings submitted by any of the GAMURS staff members. These staff members were asked to rank the 12 teams in order from best to worst, with No. 1 being the best and No. 12 being the worst. Points will be rewarded to mirror a team’s ranking; for example, the first place team will receive 12 points, while the twelfth place team will receive one point.
After every week of action, we will be releasing another power rankings article where the teams will either move up or down based on how they perform in their matches, so don’t forget to check back here each week for the latest power rankings.
Without further ado, here are your power rankings for this week.
NA Power Rankings – Week 10 (Season 2)
1. OpTic Gaming (60 total points; 5 first place votes)
OpTic Gaming remains in the number one spot of our power rankings once again despite forfeiting their only match of Week 9. Following their 3-0 forfeit loss to compLexity Gaming, OpTic now has a record of 10-4 in Stage Two, and will look to get back on track when they face off against Team SoloMid, Cloud9 and Team eLevate in Week 10.
2. FaZe Clan (52 total points)
Moving up three spots in our power rankings is FaZe Clan, who went 2-0 in Week 9. FaZe did not lose a map on the week, defeating both Hundred Thieves and Rise Nation 3-0 to bring their record up to 11-5. In Week 10, FaZe will try to continue their winning ways when they take on Team EnVyUs and H2k-Gaming.
3. Team eLevate (49 total points)
Team eLevate carried their momentum from MLG Anaheim over to the CWL with a 1-0 performance in Week 9, not dropping a single map en route to a 3-0 sweep of TSM. Now with a record of 9-5, eLevate will look to lengthen their win streak when they play against C9, Luminosity Gaming and OpTic in Week 10.
4. Rise Nation (48 total points)
An 0-2 showing in Week 9 has dropped Rise Nation down two spots in our power rankings. Rise struggled last week, losing 3-1 to Luminosity and 3-0 to FaZe, bringing their Stage Two record down to 9-7. In Week 10, Rise will try to bounce back when they go up against Dream Team and Hundred Thieves.
5. Team EnVyUs (40 total points)
Team EnVyUs has moved down one spot in our power rankings despite going 1-1 in Week 9. EnVyUs began the week with a 3-0 loss to Luminosity, but followed that up with a 3-2 win over C9. Now with a 10-5 record on the season, EnVyUs will have some tough matches when they face off against FaZe and Dream Team in Week 10.
6. Luminosity Gaming (35 total points)
Holding on to their sixth spot in our power rankings is Luminosity Gaming, who went 2-0 in Week 9 with a 3-1 win over Rise and a 3-0 win over EnVyUs, improving their record to 8-7. In Week 10, Luminosity will look to stay hot when they take on H2k and eLevate.
7. Cloud9 (29 total points)
Cloud9 was able to move up one spot in our power rankings following a 1-1 performance in Week 9. C9 lost 3-2 to EnVyUs, but responded with a 3-2 win of their own over H2k. With their record now sitting at 8-8, C9 will try to get above the .500 mark when they play against eLevate and OpTic in Week 10.
8. Dream Team (25 total points)
Moving down one spot in our power rankings is Dream Team, who went 1-1 in Week 9. Following some strange rumors and drama, dT forfeited their match against coL, but won via forfeit in their match against Hundred Thieves, bringing their record to 8-7. In Week 10, dT will look to get back to how they played in the beginning of the season when they play against Rise and EnVyUs.
9. H2k-Gaming (19 total points)
H2k-Gaming remains in the ninth spot of our power rankings after going 1-1 in Week 9. H2k lost a close 3-2 series to C9, but bounced right back with a 3-0 sweep of TSM. Despite their recent struggles, H2k will put their 7-9 record to the test when they face off against FaZe and Luminosity in Week 10.
10. compLexity Gaming (18 total points)
Two forfeit wins in Week 9 helped compLexity Gaming improve their record, but keeps them in the tenth spot of our power rankings. Fortune was on coL’s side as they got credit for 3-0 wins over OpTic and dT, bringing their Stage Two record up to 6-9. In Week 10, coL will look to ride this current streak of luck when they take on Hundred Thieves and TSM.
11. Team SoloMid (10 total points)
Team SoloMid holds on to their eleventh spot in our power rankings after a 0-2 performance in Week 9. Once again, TSM did not win a single map on the week, losing 3-0 to both H2k and eLevate. With their record sitting at 3-12, TSM will play against OpTic and coL in Week 10.
12. Hundred Thieves (5 total points)
- Matthew “Royalty” Faithfull
- Patrick “ACHES” Price
- Brandon “Nelson” McKinney
- Remington “Remy” Ihringer
Finally, Hundred Thieves is once again last in power rankings after yet another 0-2 showing in Week 9. Hundred Thieves continues to struggle in the CWL, losing 3-0 to FaZe and forfeiting to dT. In Week 10, the 2-13 Hundred Thieves will basically be playing for pride when they go up against coL and Rise.
