32 teams were competing this weekend to be take home the win from the inaugural Call of Duty World League ‘Challenge Division’ live event, London. Coming home with them would be the $10,000 prize money to be awarded at the end of Sunday’s epic final. Over the weekend, teams were knocked out systematically, until there were two groups left standing; Epsilon eSports and Team Infused.
Team Infused were leading popularity polls, and favourite to win, however it was Epsilon eSports who took the lead early on, winning the first two matches. This was unfortunately a short run for the team who were shortly demolished by Infused as they cleaned up in the next three games.
“Winning the EGL Open was a fantastic achievement for the players and meant a lot to the whole organisation.” – Andrew Christoforou, Team Infused Managing Director
With COD World League matches this week and Stage 1 Finals coming up at the end of the month, however, Team Infused’s celebrations will be clipped as the team gets straight back to work in preparation.
The Call of Duty World League aims to deliver regional competitions and live streamed events since its initial announcement September 2015. With a Pro Division as well as a Challenge Division, aimed at amateur teams looking to break into the Pro Division and secure a place in the Championship, the League is a global effort to bring competitive Call of Duty to the eSports frontline.
