In what was a CWL Championship for the ages, eUnited came out on top. It was almost never in doubt after their victory at the CWL Pro League Playoffs. The team of James “Clayster” Eubanks, Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson, Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson, Chris “Simp” Lehr and Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris came into The Pauley Pavilion and methodically defeated all of their opponents.. eUnited advanced out of Pool A, dropping just two games in the process. From there, they played as well as any team could hope in the biggest moments.
When their backs were against the wall against Evil Geniuses, eUnited clutched up and won the series 3-2. EUnited subsequently defeated fan favorites, OpTic Gaming, en route to a Grand Finals appearance. Ultimately, Grand Finals consisted of two of the best teams in all of Black Ops 4 colliding with each other. 100 Thieves came out of the losers bracket to challenge eUnited to decide the winner of the final CWL Championship.
In what was the best series played all weekend, eUnited remained calm, cool and collected through it all. eUnited took game one convincingly with a 250-126 win on Seaside Hardpoint. 100 Thieves rallied back in game two, winning Search and Destroy on Hacienda by a score of 3-1. Game three was Control on Frequency and it remained in favor of 100 Thieves. The final score saw 100T winning 3-1. After falling 2-1 in the series, eUnited bounced back magnificently. Led by Simp, eUnited managed to rattle off consecutive wins in Hardpoint and Search and Destroy on Arsenal. It was truly a performance of the ages in the game five Search and Destroy. 100 Thieves were not willing to go down without a fight.
The Series Heats Up
The two supremely talented teams traded rounds back and forth. EUnited came out strong leading 3-1 after the first four rounds. 100 Thieves came back to win the next two rounds, swinging momentum back in their favor. It took ten rounds to decide the winner. Prestinni shined in round ten, amassing three kills to secure the CWL Championship victory. Clayster, Prestinni, Arcitys, aBezy and Simp earned their first CWL Championship rings as a team. The victory in Black Ops 4 secures Clayster the second ring in his outstanding competitive Call of Duty career. At just eighteen years of age, Chris “Simp” Lehr earned the title of the Most Valuable Player at the CWL Championship. Simp maintained a 1.35 K/D throughout the tournament and showed up for his team when he needed to.
eUnited were unquestionably the best team in Black Ops 4, and are a major threat moving forward into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. With the formula of competitive Call of Duty changing as we know it, eUnited possesses quite possibly the best roster. This will go a long way as city-based franchising comes into play. The outlook for Clayster and company is at an all-time high as we prepare for change.
With all that being said, ESTNN would like to formally congratulate eUnited on an unprecedented win at the CWL Championship. The five players of eUnited forever etched themselves competitive Call of Duty history. Please check out our previous CWL Championship daily recaps to see how your favorite team performed.
