Team Kaliber pick up 2 wins to kick off Stage 2 of the CWL Pro League
It's finally back—the Call of Duty World League Pro League returned on Tuesday with the first day of Stage Two action.
Following roughly a month break, Division A kicked off earlier today with eight of the best teams in the world battling it out to begin Stage Two. And after the first day of matches, Team Kaliber sit in first place as the only 2-0 team.
The recent addition of Ian "Enable" Wyatt seems to be working well so far for Team Kaliber, who took down Splyce and Echo Fox on Tuesday. Enable, Lamar "Accuracy" Abedi, Kenny Williams, and Maurice "Fero" Henriquez started the new stage with a 3-1 victory over Splyce.
They began the series with a 250-244 win on Ardennes Forest Hardpoint, and then took USS Texas Search and Destroy 6-2. After the Europeans secured Flak Tower Capture the Flag, Team Kaliber shut down any hopes of a reverse sweep with a dominant 250-112 win on London Docks Hardpoint.
In the final series of the night, Team Kaliber won several close games to beat Echo Fox 3-2. Team Kaliber started this match with a crazy comeback on London Docks Hardpoint, which they won 250-247. After Echo Fox took Sainte Marie du Mont Search and Destroy and Flak Tower Capture the Flag, Team Kaliber earned another last-second win on Gibraltar Hardpoint.
Team Kaliber was ahead 247-244 as the hill rotated, and Kenny picked up a massive four-piece to secure the 250-249 victory. With all momentum on their side, Team Kaliber took USS Texas Search and Destroy 6-3 to earn their second series win of Stage Two.
In the other matches on Tuesday, Red Reserve kicked off Stage Two with a 3-1 win over Epsilon in Matthew "Skrapz" Marshall's debut for his new team. The Stage One champions, FaZe Clan, were swept by Team Envy, while Echo Fox won their first match of the day 3-2 against Evil Geniuses.
