LA Guerrillas may have come away with the Call of Duty League Major 2 title but plenty of players had their time to shine on main stage in Minnesota.
This is our team of the tournament from the pro event, with the rule of no more than one player from each team being allowed to make it.
Kris “Spart” Cervantez
Well. Champion Spart. What more do we need to say?
Spart got thrusted into the LAG lineup with less than a week preparation after Gunless announced he wouldn’t be able to take part in the Major.
The team rallied around the rookie and showed him to be one of the best prospects in the world.
LAG formed a great resilient-looking team throughout the Major as they made of the best lower bracket runs in history. Spart played a vital role in that run.
He even became the first player in the Call of Duty League to bring out the Volk Assault Rifle, doing so in the team’s first series of the weekend.
Spart ran it perfectly all weekend. He brought the gun out at the perfect times and he was essential in the team taking home the Major title.
Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson
FaZe may have fallen at the last hurdle but Alec looked to be in his final form all weekend.
Arcitys made huge plays throughout, including at times in the Grand Finals to keep his team in the series.
He’s now showing why he’s one of the best, not just at playing the game but at leading his team.
He may not be putting up some of the ridiculous numbers that other players could but without Arcitys, FaZe would never be able to be in Grand Finals as consistently as they are.
The “Final Boss” of the Call of Duty League have now lost both Grand Finals this season. They will go back to the drawing board for Major 3. We know that Alec will still be at the helm and will still be frying.
David “Davpadie” Maslowski
An outsider for rookie of the year, Davpadie blindsided many with his showing at Major 2.
Dave showed time and time again that he has more than enough quality to be in the Call of Duty League mix.
His Florida Mutineers side were 5-3 up in the Map 5 Search and Destroy against LAG on Desert Siege.
Davpadie put in a 13/4 performance on the map but his team just couldn’t get over the line.
Regardless, placing T4 is something that very few would have expected Davpadie and his team to do at LAN.
His team surprised everyone on opening night, dispatching the London Royal Ravens from round one of the upper bracket.
They couldn’t force their way into T3, but making it to Championship Sunday will have been enough for them.
Anthony “Methodz” Zinni
Zinni came into the Major with the best K/D in Stage 2. He then went and dropped a 1.27 throughout the Major.
That’s even including his team’s two losses, first against Atlanta and then against eventual winners LAG.
His team looked like a scary prospect heading into the Major and they’ll exit Minnesota thinking that they placed about where they should have.
Methodz once again had to pick up the slaying slack from some poorer performances from his team. They’re nowhere near needing to make a change though.
Boston look like a really solid outfit and will be made up with placing T3. They perhaps just would have assumed that they would have lost to an OpTic or a London rather than Spart and co.
