CWL Pro League Division A Week 2 Recap
CWL Pro League Format
The first piece of the action in the Call of Duty World League (CWL) Pro league this season is taking place throughout six weeks. The 16 teams that qualified have been split into two divisions of 8.
Week 1 and 2 focus on Division A, then during weeks 3 and 4 Division B will play out their games against each other. A new feature that has been implemented this season will see weeks 5 and six be played out as “Cross-Division” matches, meaning teams will be playing against teams from the division outside their own.
Gen.G Almost Perfect
The Gen.G roster has been firm underdogs throughout the entirety of the Black Ops 4 season, and it’s no different during their opening weeks of league matches. Despite this, they headed into Week 2 unbeaten with a 3-0 record.
Their second week of action was arguably tougher than before. Many didn’t expect Gen.G to continue playing at a high standard and winning their first three matches of the week against Luminosity, UYU and Optic Gaming. Gen.G now hold an impressive 6-0 record heading into their final game of the week against Midnight.
Midnight continue to cause upsets
Midnight Esports have without a doubt been the breakthrough team of this division. After their epic opening game victory against Optic, they have continued to play at a high level and impress. Midnight’s last game of the week was against the unbeaten Gen.G
Gen.G came in wanting to win to keep their flawless record and Midnight were chasing a victory to further cement themselves in 2nd place and lower the gap in the hunt for first. Midnight came out firing with all cylinders with a strong Hardpoint win to kick off the series.
The tables got turned when Gen.G pulled out a 6-1 victory on Search and Destroy to tie the series up 1-1. At this point, fans were in for a treat, and Midnight pulled off another upset after winning both a highly contested Control and then Hardpoint. They took the series 3-1 and finished the week with a 5-2 record, while Gen.G collected their first loss of the season.
