More Call of Duty competitive tournaments took place during this weekend. The APAC, NA and EU CWL 2Ks went ahead as normal. However, many of the top pro organisations in North America instead battled it out in the CMG ProDown tournament. This allowed some of the amateur NA teams to compete and get some valuable pro points looking ahead to CWL Las Vegas.
APAC, EU and NA CWL 2Ks
Beginning with the APAC region, once again it was a battle of the two top teams. Mindfreak and Tainted Minds were again competing for the top spot for the third week in a row. The previous weekend saw Mindfreak come out on top, Mitchell ‘BuZZO’ Mader and co. were looking for back to back wins. Unfortunately for them Tainted Minds took back the APAC CWL crown, taking the final series 3-2.

Much like the APAC region, the European CWL 2K this weekend also saw a repeat of the previous. Team Reciprocity and Team Heretics clashed once again. However, where Mindfreak couldn’t, Heretics did. The team from Spain took the victory in finals 3-0 over Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewen and co. With this victory, Team Heretics claimed back to back CWL wins. Both Reciprocity and Heretics look like the teams to beat in Europe so far, however Red Reserve have not yet competed since the first CWL 2K of the Black Ops 4 season.

Tras imponernos ante @TeamReciprocity con un 3-0, los nuestros se alzan como campeones del 2k.
With all the top pro teams and rosters from WWII not competing in this weekend’s NA CWL 2K it allowed other talented rosters this year to battle it out. ‘Team Orgless’ who have so far been hanging with the best teams in NA came out on top. In the first CWL 2K of the season, Michael ‘SpaceLy’ Schmale and his team took 2nd after losing to OpTic Gaming. Finally they got their CWL 2K W after they beat ‘Regginald The 3rd’ 3-0 in finals.
CMG ProDown Tournament
During the first two CWL 2Ks of the Black Ops 4 season, Patrick ‘Aches’ Price had vented his frustration of having to play ‘lesser’ teams in the early rounds. This weekend he teamed up with CheckMate Gaming. 8 Pro teams were invited to the ‘ProDown’, these included; Team Envy, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, Luminosity Gaming, Evil Geniuses, FaZe Clan, eUnited and G2 Esports. The other 8 teams were made up of ‘challenger teams’ who qualified for the ProDown through other CMG online ProDown qualifier tournaments.
Over the previous two CWL 2K tournaments Splyce, 100 Thieves and OpTic have been consistent in their top placings. This weekend was no different. With OpTic again waiting in the Grand finals, Splyce and 100 Thieves battled it out in the Losers finals. 100 Thieves were able to take the victory 3-1 and book their place.
So far during this Call of Duty competitive season OpTic have looked very strong, no other team has really come close. This proved to be the case once again. In grand finals OpTic Gaming convincingly took the W. Taking the series 4-0 over 100 Thieves. This third successive victory is impressive, OpTic have not lost a tournament so far and their map count across all three tournaments now stands at 74-4.
The Greenwall is becoming even more vocal in support of their team going into CWL Las Vegas. It will be interesting to see if OpTic can be stopped but it must be stated that the games may be a lot closer on LAN compared to the current results online.
