The final week of the regular season for Stage Two of the Call of Duty World League for Call of Duty®: Black Ops III is approaching, 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.

Following their 3-2 win over Hundred Thieves, a 3-1 loss against Luminosity Gaming and a 3-2 win over FaZe, OpTic now has a record of 15-5 in Stage Two, and will look to end the season in first place when they face off against Dream Team and Hundred Thieves in Week 12.

Moving up three spots in our power rankings is Team EnVyUs, who went 2-0 in Week 11. EnVyUs was able to defeat Rise Nation 3-2 and Hundred Thieves 3-1 to push their Stage Two record to 13-6.

7. Cloud9 (42 total points)
Cloud9 has moved up one spot in our power rankings thanks to their 2-0 showing in Week 11. C9 was able to defeat TSM 3-1 and coL 3-0 to improve their record to 11-9. As one of the teams on the “playoff bubble” right now, C9 will look to win out when they play against Luminosity and FaZe in Week 12.
8. Luminosity Gaming (34 total points)
Jumping up one spot in our power rankings is Luminosity Gaming, going 2-1 in Week 11. Luminosity began the week with wins over coL and OpTic, but then suffered a shocking 3-2 loss to TSM, bringing their record to 10-10. In Week 12, Luminosity will try to make one last push for the playoffs when they go up against C9 and coL.
9. Dream Team (32 total points)
Dream Team dropped down three spots in our power rankings following a 1-2 showing in Week 11. dT began the week with losses to TSM and dT, but then bounced back to defeat eLv 3-1, ending the week with a record of 10-10. With their playoff hopes in jeopardy, dT will try to earn some important victories when they face off against OpTic and TSM in Week 12.
10. compLexity Gaming (21 total points)
A 0-3 performance in Week 11 was somehow good enough to keep compLexity Gaming in the tenth spot of our power rankings, as the team struggled with losses to Luminosity, Rise and C9. In Week 12, the 8-12 coL is on the outside looking in, but they will still take on EnVyUs and Luminosity.
11. Team SoloMid (14 total points)
Team SoloMid actually performed well in Week 11, going 2-1 and remaining in the eleventh spot of our power rankings. TSM was able to upset both dT and Luminosity, but also lost 3-1 to C9 to bring their Stage Two record to 5-15. With no chance of making the playoffs, TSM will try to play the role of spoiler when they go up against FaZe and dT in Week 12.
12. Hundred Thieves (7 total points)
- Matthew “Royalty” Faithfull
- Patrick “ACHES” Price
- Brandon “Nelson” McKinney
- Remington “Remy” Ihringer
