CDL Major 2 – Day 3 Recap

Here’s your daily rundown of Major 2 action

The second Major of the 2022 Call of Duty League season continued with day three last night. Yesterday saw the final four confirmed for Major 2, seeing the teams that will face off for the title. Here’s a recap of everything that went down.

OpTic Texas 3-2 LA Thieves

The LA Thieves must've got excited when they saw the mapset for this series, as it featured some of their best maps. Map one kicked off this series just as we expected, with an extremely close match seeing the Thieves win 250-230. The Volk made an appearance of Tuscan once again, and while OpTic outslayed, they couldn't get the points. The Thieves looked great in the Search and Destroy too as they clutched up in round 11 to take a 2-0 series lead.

However, there was no chance that the reigning champions were going out this early. OpTic’s guns got hot in the map three Control as they dominated with a 3-0 sweep. Shotzzy put up a 1.73 K/D in this map as he played at his usual fast pace, getting Texas back in the series. This completely ruined the belief of the Thieves as OpTic went on to win 250-111 in map four with an unbelievable performance from Dashy as he dropped a 3.00 K/D after going 36/12. The reverse sweep was completed with a 6-4 Search and Destroy win on Tuscan, sending the Thieves home and seeing OpTic Texas advance at the Major.

Boston Breach 3-2 Florida Mutineers

Boston Breach continued their great run of performances in Stage 2 with a 250-174 Gavutu Hardpoint win to kick off this series. Methodz has been on another level during the Major and this didn't stop. In map one he put up a 1.67 K/D leading his Breach roster to a 1-0 series lead. The Breach dominated in the Search and Destroy too, pulling off a 6-4 win on Berlin to take a 2-0 series lead, and look like one of the best teams at Major 2.

However, the Florida Mutineers completely destroyed Boston Breach in the map three Control on Gavutu, outslaying the Breach by 29 kills and getting themselves back in the series. Florida took this momentum into map four, winning 250-206 and forcing a map five as they looked to pull off the second reverse sweep of the night. However, Boston Breach denied the Mutineers with a 6-1 Search and Destroy win on Desert Siege. Methodz was yet again the star player, being the only Boston member to go positive with his 1.29 K/D.

Atlanta FaZe 3-2 Seattle Surge

Seattle Surge had a small issue in this series, with Mack falling ill during the first map. However, it was restarted and Mack continued to play throughout. Atlanta FaZe took map one with a 250-210 Hardpoint on Tuscan, before the Surge bounced back and tied the series with a 6-4 SnD on the same map.

Control is Celliums playground, and he proved this again with a 1.63 K/D on Gavutu as FaZe took a 3-1 victory. Bocage for map four went the way of the Surge with a 250-229 win, however, Atlanta FaZe clutched up in the game five-round 11 to send Seattle to the losers bracket.

Florida Mutineers 3-1 OpTic Texas

The Florida Mutineers continue to be extremely inconsistent, and they stunned the Call of Duty League with this result. Florida took map one on Gavutu 250-248, with Skyz dominating off the bat with a 1.47 K/D. Skyz continued this reign of terror with an 11/2 Search and Destroy as the Mutineers went 2-0 up in the series. OpTic got themselves on the board with a 3-2 Gavutu Control, however the Mutineers took a 250-206 Berlin Hardpoint win, taking the series 3-1 and eliminating OpTic from the Major.

Los Angeles Guerrillas 3-2 Seattle Surge

Classic subbed in for Mack on the Seattle Surge for the last match of the day, and they kicked off this series hot. Surge took a 250-160 Tuscan Hardpoint win. However, an all-round dominant showing from LAG saw them bounce back with a 6-4 SnD. Control also went the way of the Guerrillas, and while Surge tied the series in map four, it was the Guerrillas who took map five and sent Seattle home.
