CWL Dallas: OpTic and eUnited Call of Duty Get Reverse Rematch of MLG Atlanta

  • -

After a 3-1 victory over FaZe Clan, eUnited is set to take on OpTic Gaming in the grand finals for the second time in three events. The rematch will take place at the Fort Worth Convention Center and see the two Call of Duty World League Atlanta finalists battle it out. The difference is this time it will be eUnited that need to win two in a row to secure the trophy and first place prize.

OpTic has yet to lose a match in Dallas, stomping FaZe 3-0 in the winner's bracket finals to secure its spot. The green wall held strong in two close matches, pulling off narrow 3-2 wins over Splyce and Luminosity. OpTic has managed to defeat just about every team in the top eight on its way to the grand finals.

eUnited fell earlier to Team Kaliber and FaZe but bounced back for the win with a strong performance during the losers bracket finals. A 3-0 over the Europeans of Splyce was surprising and landed the North American squad in its second FaZe matchup.

When the two teams met in Atlanta, OpTic pulled off the sweep in the first grand finals set, going 3-0 to force the second grand final. A full five maps would be needed in the second set with the final map going the distance but it was eUnited to pull away and claim the crown. Prior to Atlanta eUnited was taunted as being online warriors, a team that would fail on LAN. It has proven the doubters wrong not once but twice. OpTic has been dominant for three events now, making the finals each time and looking to claim its second in a row here in Dallas.

Dallas is similar to previous MLG events in that it boasts a $200,000 prize pool as an international event taking place in the United States. The event featured up to 176 teams competing at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Dallas, Texas and has played an important role in deciding which organizations will be represented in the upcoming Pro League for Call of Duty World League.
