Another weekend of CWL 2K action has taken place. With now less than a month left until CWL Las Vegas, teams are utilizing these online tournaments for practice. This weekend, like the week before, saw teams from Europe, APAC and North America go head to head in their regions.
APAC CWL 2K
Once again, the two powerhouse teams from the APAC region went head to head in this weekend’s 2K. Tainted Minds and Mindfreak. Last week saw Tainted Minds claim the victory with a 3-1 map count. This weekend, Mindfreak got their revenge and they did so with same map count 3-1.
Much like previous years this matchup has been very consistent in the APAC region finals and it doesn’t look likely to be different for Black Ops 4. Throughout this year, Call of Duty fans will expect to see both Tainted Minds and Mindfreak come up against one another in APAC tournaments. The real test for both will be whether or not they can battle it out with the best of NA and EU, starting with Vegas next month.

European CWL 2K
Last week saw quite a bit of controversy and some surprise placings in the European CWL 2K tournament. Going into this one, it was noted that Red Reserve would not be competing due to players having other commitments. Other talented squads such as Team Reciprocity also failed to make their mark in the previous tournament. This lead to ‘Team Sween’ taking the W for the first European CWL 2K. Unfortunately for QuiKeR and co. they could not manage the same result again, placing outside Top 8 this time round.
This weekend saw ‘Team Heretics’ or Heretics KFC claim the second EU CWL 2K crown. The team from Spain with a current roster of; Alejandro ‘Lucky’ Lopez, Juan Antonio ‘JurNii’ Gonzalez, Jorge ‘MethodZ’ Bancells, Endika ‘Sukry’ Andres and Adrian ‘MeTTalZz’ Serrano were able to beat Team Reciprocity in grand finals. Heretics convincingly beat wuskin and Co. 3-0.
Heretics placed a respectable Top 24 at the WWII World Championships last season and will be looking to improve on this throughout Black Ops 4. Claiming the second European CWL 2K tournament is a very good start.
Ganamos el último mapa y ponemos el 3-0 en el marcador ante @TeamReciprocity coronándonos ganadores del 2k.

North America CWL 2K
In APAC and EU we had new winners. In North America however, OpTic Gaming once again took the win. Last weekend the Greenwall went through the tournament without dropping a single map. This time, they only dropped 2. Going 52-2 across both tournaments. Impressive.
Last week, during their semi-final, there were some words exchanged between the players of OpTic and eUnited. It was only right that this week, they met in the final. OpTic emphatically took the series 3-0. At this moment in time, the new look OpTic roster looks a real force but there are many CWL 2Ks to play and the real test will be in Las Vegas on LAN.
So far the most consistent organisations have been OpTic Gaming, eUnited and Splyce. All 3 have been able to achieve Top 8 finishes consistently. This week saw FaZe again take a top 16 place whilst 100 Thieves did too. Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams was unable to compete due to his commitments in London for the Esports awards. It was a big miss for the rest of his 100 Thieves squad.
