The Call of Duty World League (CWL): Optic gaming wins finals of North American Stage 1
The Call of Duty® World League, Presented by PlayStation®4 Finals of Stage 1 Pro Division concluded this weekend with the best Pro Division teams in North America earning their share of the more than $3 million prize pool for 2016.
In addition to the cash payout, OpTic Gaming moved closer to securing a qualifying spot at the 2016 Call of Duty® Championship, Presented by PlayStation®4 later this year.
“We know what we are capable of and that we are the best team in Call of Duty,” Said Seth “Scump” Abner, Captain of OpTic Gaming. “We haven’t always shown what we can do, so having this win under our belt is good for the rest of our season.”
According to Rob Kostich, Executive Vice President and General Manager, the First Stage of the CWL “has featured some great gameplay, close matches and some of the best competition that Call of Duty® has ever seen”.
“Call of Duty eSports has a strong foundation dating back to Call of Duty XP back in 2011, but the CWL has already taken it to new heights and we can’t wait to continue that growth during the Second Stage and the Call of Duty Championship this year.”
