This past weekend saw the Call of Duty World Championships take place in LA. 32 teams battled for a share of the $1million prize pool and the title of the best Call of Duty players in the world.
One of the biggest surprises of the event was seeing fan favorites (and many peoples pick to win overall) Optic Gaming crash out on day two of the event after being beaten by Faze Red. Optic ended up taking 7th place.
The other major surprise of the weekend was Team Revenge, a relatively unknown team to many comprised of young players making it to the grand final. They eventually fell to Denial in the final, but it was a close affair ending three games to two. The final is certainly worth a watch if you get a chance, especially the two S&D games along with the Uplink match.
Denial took home a cool $400,000 for finishing 1st and also received some sweet championship rings. Revenge took home $200,000 for 2nd with Faze Red taking 3rd and $120,000. Below is the top eight from the event.
1. Denial eSports
2. Team Revenge
