James “Clayster” Eubanks and eUnited began the Black Ops 4 season by going undefeated in pool play to secure the No. 1 seed in Pool A. Team Sween came from the open bracket and upset 100 Thieves, sending them to the losers bracket. They later swept Reciprocity to take the second seed in Pool A.
OpTic Gaming also played nearly flawless Call of Duty in the group stage, producing a 12-1 map count to top Pool D. Splyce came in second in the group, only dropping their series against OpTic—but they’re the only team to win a map against the Green Wall so far this weekend.
Pool B was controlled by Evil Geniuses and Luminosity—despite EG getting swept by Heretics KFC. And although Pool C was full of crazy upsets and intense series, Lightning Pandas and Str8 Rippin finished in first and second in their group—Team Envy, on the other hand, shockingly went 1-3 and came in last place.
The championship winners bracket is now set, and there will be a ton of intense matches later tonight. OpTic vs. Luminosity and eUnited vs. Str8 Rippin will take place in the top half of the bracket, while the other side consists of Lightning Pandas vs. Team Sween and Evil Geniuses vs. Splyce.
CWL Las Vegas will continue tonight as the championship winners bracket kicks off with Evil Geniuses facing off against Splyce right now.
