The Seattle Surge defeated the London Royal Ravens 3-0 today to finish the 2022 Call of Duty League Major Three qualifiers with a 4-1 record.

The Surge bounced back from the Pro-Am Classic to finish the Major Three qualifiers in near-flawless fashion with only one loss to the Toronto Ultra. Seattle, who failed to win a single match during the Pro-Am Classic, turned things around just in time for Major Three to start in the winners bracket. 

Bocage Hardpoint opened the best-of-five series and saw the Royal Ravens start off on the backfoot as the Surge quickly grew their lead. Even as the Hardpoints switched up, London failed to gain their footing throughout the map. In the end, the Surge took the map 250-109. Seattle had the upper hand for the entire map, including in the slaying department. Pred walked away with a 1.69 KD after dropping nearly 40 kills on Bocage.  

With Bocage now behind them, the Royal Ravens stepped up during the early stages of the Desert Siege Search and Destroy. But individual gunfights began to go the way of Seattle and they eventually forced a round 11 despite London having the lead initially. And Seattle walked away with the win during round 11 to take the map 6-5 and go up 2-0 in the series. 

Berlin Control was the final map of the series and the nail in the coffin for London. Like during the Bocage Hardpoint, Seattle started outslaying the Royal Ravens, which made taking the advantage in the Control easy. The first two rounds of map three went the way of Seattle before they clean-swept the last round to win 3-0 in the Control and the series.

The CDL’s Major Three will take place from June 2 to 5 in Toronto.
