One of the biggest amateur tournaments in the Call of Duty scene is just two days away—and the bracket was released earlier today.
On June 3, the online relegation qualifier for the second season of the Call of Duty World League Global Pro League will take place, featuring 16 of the best amateur teams in each region.
Most of the Call of Duty community is focused on the North American regional event, since NA will send two teams from this qualifier to the relegation tournament on June 15.
The top seeded team in this qualifier is playing under the name “Supreme Team,” and it consists of Michael "SpaceLy" Schmale, Andres Lacefield, Chance “Maux” Moncivaez, and Devin “LlamaGod” Tran. The other end of the bracket features eRa Eternity—Ethan “FA5TBALLA” Wedgeworth, Christopher “ProFeeZy” Astudillo, Tanner “Mosh” Clark, and Seth “Glory” Donskey—who have seen great success in previous online 2K tournaments.
Although these two squads have the highest seeds, there are several tough contenders vying for a spot in the relegation tournament in hopes of earning a spot in the second season of the CWL Global Pro League.
Fifth-seeded Echo Fox has played well leading up to the qualifier, reaching the grand finals in two of the past three 2K tournaments, while sixth-seeded Team Kaliber just made a roster change, picking up Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi prior to this event.
Meanwhile, a few lower seeded teams have a good chance to shake things up in this qualifier, including Denial Esports, who just returned to the Call of Duty scene with a roster featuring former world champion Marcus “MiRx” Carter.
Projekt Evil, the 15th seed in this qualifier, won the UMG Orlando 2017 $10K LAN last month, and enter this tournament as true underdogs who could turn the bracket on its head with a first-round upset against eRa Eternity.
There are so many great teams in this qualifier, but only two will earn a spot in the relegation tournament on June 15. All of the action in the North American online relegation qualifier is set to begin at 12pm ET on June 3. While there is no official stream for the qualifier, some of the players will likely broadcast their matches from their personal Twitch accounts.
