Here are the groups for the 2018 CWL Atlanta Open.

Pool A

  • Rise Nation
  • Splyce
  • Echo Fox
  • Epsilon Esports
  • TBD open bracket team

Pool B

  • Luminosity
  • Team Kaliber
  • Evil Geniuses
  • Team Vitality
  • TBD open bracket team

Pool C

  • OpTic Gaming
  • FaZe Clan
  • eRa Eternity
  • eUnited
  • TBD open bracket team

Pool D

  • Team Envy
  • Red Reserve
  • UNILAD
  • Mindfreak
  • TBD open bracket team

At first glance, Pool C looks extremely intimidating—especially if eUnited can return to the form they showed earlier in the WWII season. Pool B will also be highly contested, as it will feature a rematch of the grand finals at CWL New Orleans between Luminosity and Team Kaliber.

Rise Nation, who went 13-1 in Stage One of the CWL Pro League, will look to continue their excellent play against teams like Splyce and Echo Fox, while Team Envy and Red Reserve will likely secure the top spots in Pool D.

The 2018 CWL Atlanta Open will undoubtedly feature a lot of intense Call of Duty action, and it all begins on March 9.
