Everything that went down on Day 3 of the CDL 2022 Major 1 Qualifiers.
The action continues during Major 1, here's a recap of what happened.
Los Angeles Guerrillas 3-1 London Royal Ravens
The LA Guerrillas kicked off the series with a bang as they took the first map 250-242. This Gavutu Hardpoint was dominated by LAG, with Slasher and Asim specifically playing some of the best COD they have this season. While the Ravens played their best, LAG out rotated them, and played smart to win the map.
The Guerrillas took a 2-0 lead in the series following a 6-5 Berlin Search and Destroy victory. Slasher and Gunless both dropped 9 kills as Slasher continued his great form from game one. Gismo suffered this map, going 4-9 and having one of his worst maps this season. While Gismo continued to struggle, the London Royal Ravens got themselves back into the match with a 3-1 Gavutu Control win. Afro has said he enjoys Gavutu even though he’s an SMG player, and this was easy to see in this map. 29 kills and a 1.32 K/D saw Afro bring his London roster back into the series, and forcing a game four.
The LA Guerrillas stopped the Ravens winning streak with a dominant Berlin Hardpoint. Asim dominated in this map, dropping 30 kills and finishing with a 1.88 K/D. This was an incredible performance from both Asim and Slasher throughout the series, ending with a 1.32 and 1.16 overall K/D respectively.
Toronto Ultra 3-0 Florida Mutineers
Toronto Ultra played this series with substitute Hicksy subbing in for Cammy. They began this series as tightly as possible, winning Bocage Hardpoint 221-220. The clock came right down to the final seconds, with Ultra clutching up and taking the win. However, the Mutineers heavily outslayed Toronto, and could’ve easily won this map.
The Search and Destroy was yet again extremely close, coming down to a 6-5 win in favor of Toronto. Here, Insight dominated and returned to his form from the 2021 Cold War season. To close out the series, Ultra took a 3-2 Tuscan Control win, seeing the series end in one of the closest 3-0’s we’ve ever seen.
Yet again, Florida outslayed, with Davpadie finishing positive 13 and almost keeping the Mutineers in the series. Overall, Florida outslayed Toronto by 18 kills, and most definitely should’ve gone further than the three maps that were played.
