The Los Angeles Thieves became the only team to go winless during the 2022 Call of Duty League’s Major Two online qualifiers after losing to the Seattle Surge today.

After finishing top four at the Call of Duty League Kickoff Classic and top six at Major One earlier this month, the L.A. Thieves have looked lost and like a shell of their former selves. The team went 4-1 during the Major One online qualifiers to start in the winners bracket of the tournament. Now, however, they will start in the losers bracket after being the only team to lose all five matches in the most recent set of qualifiers.

The Thieves have had some close matches throughout the Major Two online qualifiers, going to a game five against the Minnesota RØKKR, Los Angeles Guerrillas, and OpTic Texas. But they couldn’t close any of those series out in the final Search and Destroy. A 3-0 loss to the London Royal Ravens and now a 3-1 loss to Seattle Surge have put the nail in the coffin for the Thieves’ winners bracket hopes at the next event.

L.A. Thieves CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag addressed the tough spot the Call of Duty team is in but assured fans that better days are ahead.

“Rough stretch for LA Thieves,” Nadeshot said. “It’s hard to understand after such a great start to the season that we can be slumping as badly as we are now. We’re gonna work hard to get to the bottom of this and hopefully turn things around.”

At the bottom of the leaderboard, L.A. will have a short amount of time to figure things out before Major Two, which takes place from March 31 to April 3. The bracket for the tournament has yet to be determined, but the Thieves are guaranteed to start in the losers bracket with their five losses.
