For the second week in a row, Most Wanted took home the title as the North American 2K champions.
All of the professional teams in the Call of Duty World League Global Pro League are no longer allowed to compete in the MLG 2Ks, which has given amateur teams the opportunity to gain some valuable pro points for seeding in future tournaments.
Most Wanted has really stepped up in recent weeks to show that they are a top contender for the relegation tournament in June. Ethan “FA5TBALLA” Wedgeworth, Christopher “ProFeeZy” Astudillo, and Tanner “Mosh” Clark were playing with Preston “Priest” Greiner once again as a fill-in for Seth “Glory” Donskey, who still can’t compete in these tournaments until he turns 18.
This version of Most Wanted really didn’t have any close matches until the grand finals, and easily defeated their opponents in the opening rounds.
The other side of the bracket, however, featured several upsets. Anthony “Methodz” Zinni, Cole “ColeChan” Chancey, Casey “Pandur” Romano, and Adam “GodRx” Brown saw great success, upsetting Allegiance, who came in second place last weekend, and Christopher “Parasite” Duarte’s team to reach the grand finals.
The grand finals went the distance. After facing a 0-2 deficit, Most Wanted pulled off the reverse sweep to earn the 3-2 series win for their second straight 2K victory.
Once again, FA5TBALLA, ProFeeZy, Mosh, and Priest each earned 2,000 pro points, plus $2,000 as a team. Seeing the success of this roster playing with a fill-in bodes well for Most Wanted’s future once Glory turns 18. If Most Wanted continues to place well in these 2K tournaments and accumulate pro points, they’ll be in a great position to earn one of the top seeds in the qualifier for the CWL Global Pro League relegation tournament in June.
