The ACCL Toronto Cup has come to an end. The team of “SnackleBoxes” has come away with the title.

JonnyW, SnakeeCoD, Runner and Shaun will all now represent the ACCL at the Toronto LAN at the start of June.

As part of their prize for winning the competition, they will have their entire trip funded for the event.

They will have flights, accommodation and a team pass provided to them.

To win the ACCL Toronto Cup, the team beat Brand New Day by a 3-1 score.

Brand New Day, (JC, Izaac, Pac, DizzyTT) had their own fantastic run to get to the championship match.

SnackleBoxes had previously already beaten their Grand Final opponents in the upper bracket final.

The second series went the same way but they came away with an even swifter victory.

The entire competition showed how powerful the European AM scene can be.

“Chall or be challed, word to JGiz,” Jonny joked after coming away with the win.

He continued: “If I’m being honest, I didn’t even know how to react [to winning].

“I was just grateful to be in a position to win it. We’ve been working hard as a team.

“We didn’t play our best CoD today but we still clutched up when it mattered.

“I’ve never let pressure get to me, I never will. At the end of the day I’m just blessed to be able to be in the position I am.”

Finals Wednesday

Quality of matches was a theme that run throughout the entire bracket but it was even more evident on the Championship Wednesday.

Players who have been at the top of the EU game over the last few years were in action.

Genesis, Kels, Crookie and Linney were bounced from the lower bracket in the first matchup of the evening.

They lost 3-1 to Incentive, but the series could have gone completely differently.

Both Hardpoints (Gavutu and Tuscan) finished 250-234 in favour of Incentive. They closed out both maps despite huge comebacks from Team Moon.

Incentive were then knocked out in the lower bracket finals. They went 2-0 down to Brand New Day before clawing one map with their second Tuscan Control win of the night.

They couldn’t back it up on Gavutu Hardpoint and the stiffer competition was too much for them.

More EU representation at Toronto LAN

The team will now go on to represent the ACCL at the Toronto Major at the start of June.

They will be provided with team jerseys and be able to play against some of the world’s best teams.

Out of the top three teams at the Minnesota LAN, 10 of the 12 players were from the EU.

The performance of the European teams in MN really laid down a marker for the quality that the region has on offer.

Those 10 players will all be in action at the Call of Duty League Pro-Am next weekend.

The SnackleBoxes roster will now go on to be another feather in the cap that is EU representation at one of the biggest international tournaments of the season.
