Call of Duty League Super Week Results Are In: Major Brackets Revealed
The Call of Duty League Super Week results are now in as the season has wrapped up its several days of competition and had many matches throughout the past week. Here is everything that you need to know about what went down during the week of Feb. 22.
Call of Duty League Super Week Results Are In
The Call of Duty League Super Week results are now in after Activision had to make some quick changes to the league’s 2021 schedule. About two weeks ago, much of the United States went through a winter storm dealing with some devastating blows to much of the nation.
Texas, in particular, was hit hard by it and couldn’t handle it the way that other states are more prepared to, leaving millions without power, water, internet, and so on. This affected many of the Call of Duty League players who live in that state during the 2021 season.
Activision knew that it would be difficult or even impossible for all players to compete in the normal second week of the season as planned, so it delayed the second week. But instead of just pushing back the entire schedule for the 2021 season, it kept it mostly intact.
This was done by making the Super Week for last week, where it blended the second and third weeks of the season into one massive competition week. This meant that all 10 matches from Week 2 were then put into Week 3 and all of its matches.
So, yes, that means that an unbelievable 20 matches happened last week during the Super Week. Now that it is over, we have a better idea of this 2021 season and currently on top. Since there are so many matches to go over, let’s go ahead and dive into the Call of Duty League Super Week results.
Call of Duty League Super Week Results: Day 1
There were seven days of competition in the Call of Duty League Super Week results. The first match of the week was the Los Angeles Guerrillas vs. the Florida Mutineers. The former had a pretty good opening week, while Florida had a rough start.
Our predictions for this match were for Florida to win. However, there were concerns that this team has had a lot of changes and tragedies thus far. Fortunately, the Mutineers could recover here and win this match fairly quickly three rounds to one.
The Toronto Ultra and Atlanta FaZe match followed. Both teams were technically undefeated at this point, though Toronto only had one match in total. It was a nice upset win against Florida. This put both teams in a pretty good position.
But in the end, we placed our bets on Atlanta winning this one pretty quickly, and we weren’t wrong. Atlanta FaZe didn’t have much trouble winning this match three to one, continuing its top undefeated run this season, and ending the first day in a pretty predictable fashion.
Day 2 Results
From there, we come to the second day of the Call of Duty League Super Week results. This one is where things got a little bit more interesting. The first match was Paris Legion and Florida Mutineers. Paris, without a doubt, has a better team this year and poised to improve after two straight losses.
On the other hand, Florida is typically the better team of the two, so we thought it might be close. The Mutineers would win in the end, especially after beating Toronto. It seemed like a pretty easy win for Florida. That was not at all the case.
Paris Legion came in and destroyed Florida, winning this one rather quickly three rounds to nothing in the week’s first sweep. But little did we know that the second day would be nothing but the day of sweeps as another one came to pass in the second match.
This was New York Subliners vs. the London Royal Ravens. The Subliners are a great team, but they needed to recover here. They certainly did, beating London three rounds to nothing. And if that wasn’t enough, the final match of the day was a sweep as well.
Seattle Surge faced off against the Minnesota Rokkr. Though Seattle looks a lot better this year, Minnesota is just too much of a powerhouse to take down. Rokkr came out on top three rounds to nothing.
Day 3 Results
The third day had some intriguingly close matches, starting with London Royal Ravens and Dallas Empire. One of the bottom teams in the league, London had to prove itself. It certainly did in a surprising match that we didn’t expect.
The team that we saw and loved at the end of the 2020 season showed up once more here (even though it dropped all but one of those players) and looked poised to win this battle against the current world champions of the league. They narrowly lost it to Dallas three to two.
The second match of this week was equally matched. It was Seattle Surge vs. the Los Angeles Thieves. The Thieves are one of the top teams this year, but they nearly met their match in this fight. They narrowly won this one three rounds to two.
And to end off the day was OpTic Chicago vs. Toronto Ultra. Hot off of both of their losses to Atlanta, these two teams needed to prove themselves. Like almost always, Chicago proved that as long as they aren’t up against the FaZe, they will almost assuredly dominate the opponent. They won this one three rounds to one.
Day 4 Results
One of the most exciting matches of the entire week took place on the fourth day: New York Subliners vs. Minnesota Rokkr. The Rokkr are my favorite this season, while the Subliners were my favorite in the past season.
They are set up to be rivals, given that half of the team from Rokkr are players who were part of the reason New York was so well last year. Though Minnesota has been one of the top teams this season, New York came out of nowhere and showed Rokkr who’s boss, winning this one in a full sweep three-nil.
The next match was OpTic Chicago and Los Angeles Guerrillas. We largely got a repeat of what happened in Chicago’s previous match. The Guerrillas did their best, but it is hard to stop Chicago, who won this one pretty quickly three to one.
And the day concluded with our first marquee match of the season: Atlanta vs. Florida. Only two teams could truly stop the FaZe last year, and those were Florida and Dallas. Florida proved this again in the warm-up match, winning against Atlanta.
But it seems to FaZe learned from that scrimmage loss, winning this one rather easily three rounds to one and continuing its streak of unstoppable wins thus far in the season and cementing its No. 1 in the group.
Day 5 Results
Next up was LA Thieves against London Royal Ravens. Like the Atlanta FaZe match the day before, LA also continued its streak of wins here, winning this one three rounds to one and dominating its group once more. Following up on that was Paris Legion vs. the Toronto Ultra.
Coming off of its upset win against Florida, it was going to be interesting to see if the Legion could show us if that was a fluke or not against a team who also beat Florida. In the end, it was as close as you might expect. Paris edged out in the end and proved itself the better group.
The day ended with only the second marquee match of the week: Dallas Empire vs. the New York Subliners. This was the rivalry of dreams with the only two teams here who have current world champions.
New York did its best, following up on two wins while Dallas gave its all to avoid another Minnesota Rokkr situation. It was close but just not enough for Clayster and New York as Dallas Empire edged out its victory three rounds to two in one of the best matches of the week.
Day 6 Results
The second-to-last day of the Call of Duty League Super Week results featured the first match-up of Paris Legion and Atlanta FAZe. This was the final match for both teams. They needed to give it their all, mostly since both were on a winning streak.
In all honesty, this match was a lot closer than it should have been. Atlanta still won in the end, three rounds to two. Next up was Minnesota Rokkr and London Royal Ravens in a match that was not that interesting at all, honestly.
London had its final chance to win a match for the week after improving some, but it all didn’t matter much here. Minnesota showed its true strengths in this match, dominating it entirely and winning one of the quickest matches of the Week 3 rounds to nothing.
And the final match of the sixth day was Los Angeles Guerrillas vs. the Toronto Ultra in the final truly close match of the week. Both teams gave it their all. The Los Angeles Guerrillas nailed their final match in the end of the Super Week, winning this one three rounds to two.
Day 7 Results
The Super Week’s final day was a lot less interesting than we thought it would be. The day kicked off with New York Subliners vs. the Seattle Surge. New York is the better team overall. It showed in this pretty simple win three rounds to one.
The second match was a hyped one with OpTic Chicago vs. the Florida Mutineers. Florida needed a win here to prove itself again, but it was just not there at all. OpTic is just too strong of a team. It dominated once more, winning this one three rounds to one.
And then we came to the final match of the week and one of the most exciting ones this season: LA Thieves vs. Dallas Empire. Atlanta had already cemented itself as the best this season. LA was giving it a run for its money with their undefeated streak thus far.
All it had to do was defeat the final boss, Dallas Empire, and claim the group throne as its own. But once again, Dallas showed up here and proved how it was able to take down the number one team Atlanta multiple times last year in this very quick, blink and you miss it kind of match where the Empire destroyed LA three rounds to nothing to take the group win in the end.
First Major Brackets Revealed
With the conclusion of the Call of Duty League Super Week results, that means that it is time for the first Major of the season. The new seasonal format is three weeks of normal play (or two weeks in this case) followed by a Major that features teams seeded based on how well they did in the weeks prior.
There is an upper and bottom bracket where the upper teams can still keep going if they lose one match, while the bottom bracket teams are eliminated if they lose even one match. The bottom six teams are in the elimination bracket, while the top six teams start in the upper bracket.
The top two teams from each bracket will get a one-round bye, so they have a bit of an advantage over the other teams in their bracket. The bottom four teams are Seattle Surge, Florida Mutineers, Toronto Ultra, and the London Royal Ravens, the only team not to have at least one win.
The two teams getting a round bye in the bottom bracket are Paris Legion and Minnesota Rokkr, who, in our opinion, definitely get the short end of the stick here as they deserved to start in the top bracket. From there, we come to the top bracket.
The four teams initially in the top bracket are OpTic Chicago, New York Subliners, LA Thieves, and the race’s biggest dark horse: Los Angeles Guerrillas. The top two teams right now are, unsurprisingly Atlanta and Dallas, who have one round bye. We’ll have more details on the tournament soon.
