COD CWL Sheffield Review

26 June 2017 14:51

Epsilon eSports have been crowned CWL Sheffield Open champions after whitewashing Red Reserve 3-0 in the grand final at the Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, taking home a $10,000 share of the $25,000 prize pool, and 38,900 CWL Pro Points.

The Belgian-based team triumphed over the two-day event from the 24th to 25th of June, which saw an open bracket, pro play pool and championship bracket. It was their second straight EU tournament success, following their 3-0 grand final victory over Splyce in April’s CWL Birmingham. Epsilon were one of the pre-tournament favourites in Sheffield, helped further by their recent third-placed finish at CWL Anaheim in June where they fell 3-0 to Luminosity Gaming, eventual tournament winners, in the Winners Bracket Final.

Epsilon finished with a 9-1 map record in Pool B of CWL Sheffield, consisting of 3-0 victories over MRN eSports Blacks and Team MRN, and a 3-1 win over Team Vitality. The 3-0 grand final victory over Red Reserve came in the Hardpoint, S&D and Uplink maps, as the four-man team of David "Dqvee" Davies (Slayer), Stephen "Vortex" Allen (Support), Billy "Hawqeh" Harris (Slayer) and Joshua-Lee "Joshh" Shephard (Flex) conquered all before them.

Off the back of their impressive Call of Duty performance, Epsilon can now look forward to Stage Two of the CWL Global Pro League in Columbus, where they come up against OpTic Gaming, Team EnVyUs and Cloud9 in Group Green. The action begins on the 30th of June, as sixteen teams battle it out for a $212,500 share of the $700,000 prize pool and 25,000 CWL Pro Points.
