There wasn’t a whole lot to recap during day one of the CWL Open in Dallas, TX due to the bomb threat that ended the competition a few hours early, but day two continued unimpeded and at a rapid pace as the producers tried to make up for lost time.
Highlights From Day Two of Call of Duty World League Dallas Open
An early highlight in Day 2 came from Octane on Luminosity. Any watching CWL have tabs on all players via the spectator mode but it looks like Octane had as clear a view of the hidden player as anyone when he sniped his opponent through cover flawlessly. It was a wonderful play that shocked the entire audience.
Another early highlight was the clash between Envyus and Optic Gaming. Optic took the match, but it was fairly entertaining from beginning to end and elicited a lot of responses from the audience. Post-match, Crimsix of Optic made sure to remind everyone that they defeated Envyus in an online match as well. Sounded like a personal retort to some previous statements from Envyus. Crimsix added that he was looking forward to faxing
Open bracket was a wild ride with some very notable names making some noise pretty early on. Echo Fox, FaZe, Allegiance, and Next Threat were the teams that made it into pools.
Optic Gaming and Team Kaliber were the only two teams to close out pool play undefeated with 4-0 records. Echo Fox was the only Open Bracket team to make it into the winner's bracket. The results and brackets for Sunday's matchups are as follows:
The winner's bracket is etched in stone after today’s matches and players will be getting rest tonight before returning for the chance at $4.2 million on Sunday. Many props to the production team for being able to make up for nearly an entire day of competition after the bomb threat and be sure to follow me on twitter @The_CSJR for some live tweets from the event.
