This weekend, saw the amalgamation of the Call of Duty League 2020 at the Championship Weekend. Four teams remained and after four intense matches we finally saw Dallas Empire earn their championship rings and come out on top.
The Championship Weekend opened with the Elimination Bracket, which saw the Chicago Huntsmen face off against the London Royal Ravens. This hotly anticipated match saw Europe’s only team take on fourth-seed, the Huntsmen. In a nail-biting match with all to play for, it was Chicago Huntsmen come out on top, in a 3-1 victory, bringing Europe’s dream of the finals to an end.
Next we saw the two top teams, Atlanta Faze and Dallas Empire, who have played consistently well this season come head-to-head fighting it out for a place in the final. But it was second-seed, Dallas Empire, that proved to be the better team, winning 3-2 and putting one more match in Atlanta Faze way in order to reach the final.
The final match of the day was the Eliminations Finals with Chicago Huntsmen and Atlanta Faze both only one win away from the finals. These two top teams fought it out valiantly but ultimately Atlanta Faze secured a 3-1 win sending them though to Sunday’s final.
After 8 months of competition, it all came down to the Sunday final, with Dallas Empire and Atlanta Faze only one match away from winning and the largest part of the $4.6 million prize pool. After some impressive game play it was Dallas Empire who were crowned winners of the 2020 CDL Championship, winning the Championship Final Best-of-nine series 5 – 1.
