OpTic and New York SWEPT as Call of Duty League Returns to LAN: Day One Recap

The Call of Duty League returned to LAN for the first time in 15 months Thursday afternoon with four matches in the Stage Four Major at the Esports Center in Arlington, Texas. Seattle Surge vs London Royal Ravens The first match of the day featured the last-place Seattle Surge and 11th-place London Royal Ravens in a Loser’s Round One matchup, with the loser heading home and the winner living to fight another day. Seattle proved too much for their European competition, dominating them in respawns and winning 3-1 behind an inspirational performance from Sam “Octane” Larew. Octane’s last full season on LAN culminated with a runners-up trophy at the Black Ops 4 World Championships and the unofficial title of “best assault rifle player” in the game. Seattle’s main AR had a 1.8 kill/death ratio in the series, while his AR partner Gunless had a 1.4. The Surge is still not getting the production it needs from submachine gun players Prestinni and Classic to pose a real threat to top-half teams, but a 250-89 win on Checkmate hardpoint to close out London shows how dangerous they can be when they are in their rhythm. The Surge will take on the Paris Legion Friday at 3:00 p.m. ET for a chance to take on OpTic Chicago in the following round. Battle of Los Angeles: Thieves vs Guerillas Thursday’s second matchup was a battle for Los Angeles between the Thieves and Guerillas— the drama started about an hour before the match when news that star player Huke would not be eligible to play due to a missed COVID test. The Thieves substituted in Drazah, who was benched two weeks ago and played with him in place of their young talent. The match was very back and forth, with the Thieves winning both hard points, but it was the Guerillas that closed out their inner-city rival in a map five Search and Destroy on Miami, 6-3. Only one player on the Guerillas (Chino) posted a positive K/D for the series compared to three for the Thieves, led by SlasheR’s 1.3, but their clinical S&D play saw them over the line. LAG is 18-17 on the season in this game mode, and it is the only one that they have a winning record in. The Guerillas’ next match will be Friday at 4:30 p.m. against the Florida Mutineers. Dallas Empire vs OpTic Chicago The third match of the day was a rivalry contest between the Dallas Empire and OpTic Chicago, who were 3-0 on LAN against their rivals. OpTic Scump and Dallas’ Crimsix squashed their beef at the start of the new year after being on bad terms for the Modern Warfare season, ending a feud stemming from Scump’s decision to separate from his longtime teammate that he had won a world championship with. OpTic FormaL, another former teammate of Crimsix during the championship run, chose to follow a different path and reignited his tension with Crimsix earlier this week, setting the stage for an epic showdown during the return to LAN. Crimsix and the Empire ended up laughing at their favored opponents, winning the series in a clean 3-0 fashion. OpTic struggled to keep up with Dallas’ coordination despite nearly matching their slaying power for stretches, though they fell in the end. The Empire’s sub duo of Shotzzy and Vivid finished with K/Ds over 1.3 while the only player with a positive margin on OpTic was Dashy, who finished the series with a 1.15. Dallas plays the Toronto Ultra in Winner’s Round Two tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. while OpTic will face the winner of the Seattle Surge and Paris Legion at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 19. Minnesota Rokkr vs New York Subliners The final match of the first day back on LAN featured the Minnesota Rokkr and the New York Subliners: Minnesota has had a relatively disappointing season after they appeared to have a good offseason while New York has been on fire lately, though they were forced to play without usual starter Asim who could not obtain a visa to travel from his native Canada to the United States to compete. The Call of Duty League returned to LAN for the first time in 15 months Thursday afternoon with four matches in the Stage Four Major at the Esports Center in Arlington, Texas (File photo). Asim was replaced by former Seattle Surge-flameout Decemate, who was given less than a week to practice with his new teammates before flying out to the event. New York’s usual cohesion and team play were greatly reduced by their new arrival, and it showed in their performance, ultimately dropping the series 3-0 to Minnesota. Standy led the way for the victors with a 1.47 K/D, while HyDra was the only Subliner to get more kills than deaths in the series. Minnesota will play the Atlanta FaZe, favored to win the whole event, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, while New York will play the winner of the Florida Mutineers and the Los Angeles Guerillas. — Grant Mitchell is a sportswriter and multimedia contributor for the Sports 2.0 Network dealing with basketball, football, soccer, and other major sports: you can connect with him on Twitter @milemitchell to stay up to date with the latest sports news and to engage personally with him.

2021 BMW Championship Betting Preview

The FedEx Cup Playoffs have been cut to the top 70 after last week’s Northern Trust. Hurricane Henri forced a Monday finish where Tony Finau finally got over the hump to beat Cameron Smith in a playoff for his first win in over five years. 70 players are fighting for thirty spots in the Tour Championship next week where the FedEx Cup Champion will be crowned. Players near the bottom of the top 70 will likely need at least a top 15 finish and some luck to move into the top 30. Getting into the Tour Championship carries big benefits though and players are extremely motivated to find a way in so targeting those close to the cut off line is something worth looking at.  Patrick Reed is the only golfer who is expected to miss this week as he battles pneumonia. With a field as loaded as this, I think it will look a lot like it has in the past and last week with elite players filling the top of the leaderboard come Sunday. Caves Valley Golf Club is hosting the BMW this year and it is a new course for the Tour. The Champions Tour and the LPGA Tour have both played an event here in the past but this is largely a new test for the players. Caves Valley is a par 72, playing around 7,540 yards. It is a long course that the fairways have allegedly been brought in a lot to try and provide some defense to the best players in the world. The early sentiment is that the course will yield a lot of birdies and the longer hitters will feast. There aren’t strong defenses for missing the fairway like last week with water and long grass. It will largely just be rough and bunker placement that causes issues at Caves Valley. There are a number of drivable par fours depending on tee placements this week. Bent grass greens this week so sorting players by their bent grass putting ability is something I will consider. The around the green ability that was important last week will likely be less of a factor as Caves Valley’s greens are significantly larger in size and more players will be hitting greens this week. SG: Approach will be the key factor as always, particularly if birdies are out there. The best approach for players with a little extra length off of the tee is the type of player I will be targeting this week.  There are a lot of players with big motivations this week, whether it’s to get into the top 30 or position themself for a realistic shot to win next week. It should be a fun week to watch the best players in the world gun it out. FREE GOLF PICKS BMW Championship Outrights These playoff events are typically won by the very top of the elite players. When you get this many top guys in a field, usually at least one of them brings the A game and takes home the victory. This week will be [...]
