Week one of the Call of Duty World League National Circuit is in the books, and there were some rather surprising results in each of the eight circuits.

The CWL National Circuit debuted Friday, as 64 teams began round-robin play against their fellow league teams. In the United States circuit, top-seeded compLexity split their matches after falling to GGEA Blue, while the last seed, JuKeD, won two of their three matches to grab the top spot in the league after the first week.

Lightning Pandas expectedly rolled through their Canadian opponents, while Callum "Swanny" Swan's team in the Italian circuit lost both of their matches to drop to sixth in the standings.
