Call of Duty fans around the world have been counting down the days until the 2019 World League Championships and they finally get underway this Thursday morning!
32 of the best teams in the world will fight it out for the $2,000,000 prize pool in the biggest Call of Duty tournament in history. The tournament will mark the end of the Black Ops 4 season before we move into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare later this year.
We have a full preview and betting tips for the event below.
eUntied come into the tournament as favourites after winning the Pro League Playoffs just last month. The squad of Arcityes, Prestinni, Clayster, aBeZy and Simp took out the massive $500,000 first prize at the playoffs after defeating Gen.G in the Grand Final. eUnited have been one of the most consistent teams in the Call of Duty competitive scene throughout the Black Ops 4 season, finishing 2nd in Las Vegas, 2nd in London and 5th in Anaheim before winning the Pro League Playoffs.
Over the course of the five major championships of the year, 100 Thieves was the only team to win two titles. After a slow start to the season that saw them finish outside the top eight in Las Vegas and fourth in Fort Worth, 100 Thieves made some key roster changes which saw them take out both of the CWL London and the CWL Anaheim events. Kenny, Octane, SlasheR, Enable and Prestiahh are all proven juggernauts in Call of Duty and make up arguably the most talented roster in the game.
Another team that started the season slow but have found form at the right time of year, Gen.G is arguably the best team in Call of Duty to have not won a major championship this season. The talented roster of MajorManiak, Nagafen, Havok, Maux and Envoy haven’t combined for many trophies in their careers but their form over the past few events is undeniable. They have finished second in the last two events of the season in Anaheim and the Pro League playoffs and are a real dark horse for the World Championships.
How can you not include arguably the most dominant franchise in Call of Duty history as a contender. Regardless of their streaky form this year, OpTic has been a major threat since winning the first event of the year in Las Vegas and while they finished outside of the top eight in Fort Worth, they bounced back with top three finishes in London and Anaheim. Crimsix, Karma and Scump are the three winningest players in Call of Duty history and they have two extremely talented youngsters in Dashy and TJHaly onboard. At $8.00 to win, it’s tough to look past the value of OpTic Gaming here.
