Call Of Duty League Championship 2022 – Day 2 Recap

With Day 2 all wrapped up, unfortunately, we didn’t get to see as many Game 5’s as we did yesterday but nevertheless, upsets occurred and the storylines are beginning to build up as we progress through the tournament.

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR DAY 1 RECAP

NEW YORK SUBLINERS vs. LONDON ROYAL RAVENS

To start off Day 2 we have the first elimination match of the tournament, between NY Subliners and London Royal Ravens which did actually go to a Game 5. Gavutu Hardpoint would be played for Game 1 and Byron “Nastie” Plumridge pops off for the Royal Ravens as he drops 30 kills and 21 deaths, resulting in a 1.43 K/D and the map win 250–214.

London dominated Desert Siege S&D, 6–2 with Nastie showing up yet again with a 2.25 K/D. For the Subliners, in contrast to the day prior, Matthew “KiSMET” Tinsley stepped up this map but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as the rest of the team suffered with 0.33 K/D. The highlight of the match was the crowd staying respectful as London did a ‘ninja defuse’ on New York.

With London at match point, New York needed a reverse sweep for them to stay in this tournament but to do so their members would need to switch on and earn their right to stay. Gavutu Control saw NYSL’s Paco “HyDra” Rusiewiez step up as the phenomenal submachine gun player he is, pushing his team to take the map 3–1.

The second Hardpoint was played on Berlin and all of New York stepped up this series. All players for the Subliners managed over a 1.2 K/D with HyDra leading the pack with 31 kills and 20 deaths. Because of New York’s dominance, they were able to take Game 4, 250–173. We also saw Marcus “Afro” Reid from London have one of his worst maps this tournament with a K/D of 0.53 but the stats don’t show the phenomenal play he did.

And here we are again, Game 5 S&D but this time on Berlin. New York eventually took the map 6–4 but the scoreline doesn’t show how poorly the majority of London played. London only managed to stay in this game thanks to Joey “Gismo” Owen putting his team on his back but it was a little too late as before we knew it, HyDra and company ended the Brits’ run in this tournament.

TORONTO ULTRA vs. BOSTON BREACH

Next up was Boston versus Toronto. Game 1 was Tuscan Hardpoint and Toronto came out swinging as they dominated the Boston Breach in kills. Toronto closed out the map 250–170.

Game 2 saw Boston Breach bounce back hard as they decided to snatch the momentum from Toronto’s hands. Boston’s Dylan “Nero” Koch carried his team as he put on a masterclass of S&D prowess, finishing the map 9/2, that’s a 4.5 K/D. Boston absolutely dismantled Toronto in a flawless 6–0. No one from Boston died more than three times the entire map.

Thinking that they had the momentum, Boston came into Game 3 as confident as ever but unfortunately, Nero couldn’t show the same skill he portrayed in the previous map. Although his captain, Anthony “Methodz” Zinni managed to pick up after him, it just wasn’t enough for the Breach. Managing to bring the Berlin Control to a Round 5, Toronto clutched up and took Game 3, 3–2.

The next Hardpoint was to be on Berlin again, and although the scoreline 250–218 may seem like it was a somewhat well-fought map between the two teams, the stats show just how dominant the Toronto Ultra are as a Hardpoint team. All members of the Ultra got a 1.0 K/D or over and with that, we had the first series not to go to a Game 5 this tournament, and Boston were sent home.

ATLANTA FAZE vs. SEATTLE SURGE

The third game of the day was between Atlanta FaZe and the Seattle Surge, two of the highest killing teams in the game. Straight off the bat, Game 1 Tuscan Hardpoint ended in a two-point game with the Surge clutching up in the ending moments. Amer “Pred” Zulbeari from the Surge shows why he’s deserving of the Rookie of the Year title as he topped the leaderboard with a 1.43 K/D. The stats don’t show how crucial of a role Seattle’s Makenzie “Mack” Kelley also contributed to Surge taking the map 250–248

FaZe bounced back in Game 2 on Berlin S&D thanks to both Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris and Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson getting a 2.0 and 2.5 K/D each respectively. In contrast to the last map, Pred only managed 1 kill throughout the entire map and died 6 times. FaZe closed out the map 6–2.

The Control was on Tuscan and was pretty one-sided as FaZe took the map 3–1. Arcitys topped the leaderboard achieving a 1.69 K/D with 27 kills and 16 deaths.

Next up was Berlin Hardpoint, and we got another extremely close game. Once again, Seattle managed to clutch up in the final moments when they were at a 13-point deficit, managing to clean up the FaZe members and secure the remaining time they need to win. Seattle took the second Hardpoint 250–244, bringing the series to another Game 5 once again.

Tuscan S&D would be the last map in the series and these two teams were refusing to give in to one another. While Pred stepped up for the West Coast boys, Chris “Simp” Lehr and McArthur “Cellium” Jovel did the same for FaZe. The game went to Round 11 with Atlanta coming out on top as they #FaZeUp into the next round as they secured Top 3. Meaning Seattle would need to make a lower bracket run if they wanted the title.

 

OPTIC TEXAS vs. LOS ANGELES THIEVES

To close out the day we had what was in many people’s eyes, a possible Grand Final matchup between OpTic Texas and LA Thieves. Gavutu Hardpoint would be map one and with expectations high, GreenWall fans would be left very disappointed with the scoreline. LA Thieves join the 200-point club as they shattered the GreenWall 250 to a pitiful 58 points.

OpTic were hoping to bounce back in the Berlin S&D and although they managed to put up a good fight, the Thieves’ Zack “Drazah” Jordan shut them down completely as he managed himself a solid 13 kills and 6 deaths, helping his team close out the map 6–4. Kenneth “Kenny” Williams also embarrasses OpTic in a crucial 1v2 play in Round 4.

Usually it’s when their backs are against the wall, OpTic show their true potential and OpTic fans were on the edge of their seats during this match. But OpTic’s Indervir “iLLeY” Dhaliwal failed to live up to expectations of being an effective piece to OpTic’s arsenal. Sam “Octane” Larew from LA on the other hand had OpTic in between his fingers as he almost went double-positive and dropped 39 kills with only 20 deaths. LAT would secure themselves Top 3 and for OpTic, like Seattle, they would need to pull off a lower bracket run if they wanted to be in the Grand Finals.
