Over 150,000 viewers on Twitch and MLG.tv just witnessed an exhilarating winners bracket finals at the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship.

Team EnVyUs, the reigning CoD Champs winners, defeated OpTic Gaming 3-1 Sunday afternoon to send the Green Wall down to the losers bracket.

OpTic actually won the opening match in this series. The slaying duo of Seth “Scump” Abner and Matthew “FormaL” Piper combined for 89 kills as OpTic took Throwback Hardpoint 250-195.

But from that point on, the Boys in Blue took complete control of this series.

Jordan “JKap” Kaplan, Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat, Johnathan “John” Perez, and Bryan “Apathy” Zhelyazkov bounced back by winning Breakout Search and Destroy 6-2.

On Frost Uplink, John and Apathy dropped 30 kills each—and SlasheR wasn't too far behind with 29—as EnVyUs earned a 4-2 victory.

Now with a 2-1 advantage in this series, EnVyUs put an end to OpTic's undefeated Hardpoint record at this tournament with a 250-161 win on Scorch. SlasheR led the scoreboard with 33 kills, while Damon “Karma” Barlow was the only player on OpTic to drop more than 16 kills.

OpTic will now square off against Luminosity in the losers bracket finals. Luminosity is coming off a strong 3-1 victory against Rise Nation earlier today—and a phenomenal losers bracket run in general at this tournament.

This is sure to be an intense matchup, and it's set to begin at 1pm ET on Sunday, Aug. 13.
