Paris Home Series Results: Florida Mutineers Are First to Win 3 Events


by in Call of Duty | Jun, 22nd 2020

The Call of Duty League just finished its latest event in the first season of the league, and it was one of the more predictable ones. Despite that, the Paris Home Series results are interesting for the community as it makes a momentous occasion as one team has now broken a long-held record.

Call of Duty League Paris Home Series Results Were Predictable


Overall, the Call of Duty League Paris Home Series results were pretty predictable, especially if you’ve been paying attention to the recent tournaments and matchups. It was also not nearly as exciting as some of the past couple of tournaments in the league.

Despite that, the Call of Duty League Paris Home Series Weekend was still entertaining and worth watching as it was the culmination of some major changes for a couple of teams in the league including Atlanta FaZe and Florida Mutineers that has been happening for a while now.

The Paris tournament began this past Friday, June 19 and went through Sunday, June 21, with three days of competition with eight of the 12 teams participating in the event. This tournament came just a week after the previous one, due to an unexpected delay for the Minnesota Home Series.

Paris Home Series Groups and Teams


Like previous events, only eight of the 12 teams in the league were part of the Paris Home Series and those teams were as follows:

  • Florida Mutineers
  • Paris Legion
  • Dallas Empire
  • London Royal Ravens
  • OpTic Gaming Los Angeles
  • New York Subliners
  • Toronto Ultra
  • Atlanta FaZe

These eight teams only included a handful of the top teams around, compared to last weekend, when the top five teams in the league all competed in the same Home Series event for the first time. Though it couldn’t compare to that event, it was fun enough in its own right.

Group A consisted of Paris Legion, Florida Mutineers, London Royal Ravens, and Dallas Empire. On the other hand, Group B was New York Subliners, OpTic Gaming LA, Atlanta FaZe, and Toronto Ultra. All eight of these teams gave it their all. We had a lot of game five matches, similar to the previous weekend but not as close at times.

Paris Home Series Results: Day 1


The event began on day one with the first round of matches as the marquee match of the day kicked things off with the hosts of the event, Paris Legion, taking on Florida Mutineers. The Mutineers are a team that have been on an upturn after some poor performance for a bit and it continued here.

Florida showed up with full force and easily decimated the hosts of the Home Series Weekend three rounds to nothing, giving this tournament a surprisingly devastating start to the weekend. The next match was Dallas Empire against London Royal Ravens and this was closer than we expected.

In the end, Dallas did come out on top as you might expect, but London gave much more of a fight than anyone would have predicted. The result was a game five match that went in favor of Dallas Empire, three rounds to two, followed by the third match of the first day.

That match was OpTic Gaming LA versus New York Subliners where OpTic wasn’t able to recapture the performance from their last event and, sadly, lost three rounds to one against the Subliners. The final match of the day was another surprisingly close one to end the night.

It was Toronto Ultra versus Atlanta FaZe, the latter of which would have been predicted to destroy Toronto any other day. But Atlanta has been on a weird slow downturn lately where it still wins nearly all of its matches, but not before making it to the fifth and final game of the match.

And that is what happened here as Atlanta FaZe won this match barely three rounds to two.

Day 2 Results: End of the Group Stage


On day two of the Paris Home Series results, the group leaders from B kicked things off as Atlanta FaZe faced off against New York Subliners. Again, FaZe faltered here quite a bit and let this one go to the fifth game, barely winning again three rounds to two.

This put Atlanta as the first team to make it to the final day of the tournament. Dallas Empire versus Florida Mutineers followed this and the Mutineers didn’t slow down one bit, defeating Dallas three rounds to one in a surprisingly effective victory.

This was followed by Toronto Ultra and OpTic Gaming Los Angeles where OpTic wasn’t able to summon any of its former strength and was defeated three rounds to nothing. Then it was the European match up as London Royal Ravens and Paris Legion took each other on.

However, Paris wasn’t able to use its home field advantage as it was defeated by London three rounds to one. Finally, we had some tiebreakers to finish off to see who would join Atlanta and Florida in the finals, starting with Toronto Ultra versus New York Subliners in a tiebreaker match.

New York shined through and was able to defeat Toronto Ultra three rounds to one. The final match of the day was Dallas Empire versus London Royal Ravens where there was no competition whatsoever as Dallas was able to destroy London three rounds to nothing and secure their place in the finals.

Day 3 Results: A Winner Is Crowned


This led to the final day of the Paris Home Series results with the four teams in the finals being New York Subliners, Florida Mutineers, Dallas Empire, and Atlanta FaZe. The first match of the final day was New York Subliners versus Florida Mutineers in yet another close one.

New York Subliners showed that it isn’t a bad team and gave it their all, but were unable to stop Florida on its winning streak. They lost to the Florida Mutineers three rounds to two. This was followed by another rematch of Dallas Empire and Atlanta FaZe, and it was certainly a close one.

Atlanta FaZe took out Dallas Empire in the end once it went to the fifth game match in a three to two victory. This essentially secured that Atlanta will win the match if it goes to game five, but we aren’t sure what is wrong with the team currently.

The finals match of the Paris Home Series Weekend was the same as last weekend with Atlanta FaZe taking on Florida Mutineers. Unlike last weekend, though, Atlanta seemingly gave up on trying to win this match as they were destroyed by Florida three rounds to nothing.

Florida Mutineers Are First to Win 3 Events


This crowned Florida Mutineers as the winner of this Paris Home Series tournament. This was also the second event in a row that the team won. They are now the first team in the league to have three victories in the entire league.

They have finally broken the record that no other team has been able to break. Despite teams like Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, and Atlanta FaZe winning two events this year, none of them have been able to break the so-called two-win curse.

But now Florida Mutineers has done it, hot off of their second victory in the first season last weekend. This is an impressive turn of events for a team that was barely hanging on in the top five group weeks ago and has now essentially become the best around right now.

On the other hand, Atlanta FaZe has gone from the best team in the league (and still is, points-wise) to a team that is continuously struggling to win every match and still wins almost all of them but only because they have better players overall.

New Call of Duty League Standings


With the Paris Home Series results now here, we have some updated Call of Duty League standings for Season 1. With only a few more events left in the first season of the league, these standings are sure to change soon, but they are pretty surprising.

From first place currently to last place, you can find the Call of Duty League standings below:

  • Atlanta FaZe
  • Florida Mutineers
  • Chicago Huntsmen
  • Dallas Empire
  • Minnesota Rokkr
  • London Royal Ravens
  • New York Subliners
  • OpTic Gaming Los Angeles
  • Paris Legion
  • Toronto Ultra
  • Seattle Surge
  • Los Angeles Guerrillas

For the first time, Florida Mutineers has not only climbed out of the top five teams in the league but has soared to the top because of this event, climbing to second place and passing up both Chicago Huntsmen and Dallas Empire in the process.

This is an unbelievable change. Florida is gunning for taking the number one spot next as it encroaches on the top spot that Atlanta FaZe has held onto for a while now. It’s beginning to look like Florida Mutineers has finally made the necessary changes to become potentially the best team in the league.

What is also crazy about these results is the fact that all 12 teams in the league have now competed in the same number of events: seven. This means that no team currently has the advantage over the others by being able to compete in more events, as everyone has been in the same. The Florida Mutineers could be in the running now for the championship win.

What’s Next for the League?


But before we can ever get to the championship of the first season of the highly entertaining Call of Duty League, we have three more events in the main season to go through before we can get to August. New York, London, and Toronto are the final three hosts of the season. They have their events soon.

Players and fans alike will have to wait a few more weeks for the next event, though, as the league is taking a bit of an extended break for now (likely due to the holiday here in the United States). But in three weeks, the season will pick back up with the New York Subliners Home Series Weekend.

This event is shaping up to be a pretty standard one like the Paris event this past weekend, where only some of the best teams around will compete. But even still, it should be an exciting one. Here are the eight teams that will compete during that weekend:

  • Toronto Ultra
  • Paris Legion
  • Chicago Huntsmen
  • London Royal Ravens
  • Los Angeles Guerrillas
  • Atlanta FaZe
  • Minnesota Rokkr
  • New York Subliners

Group A features Paris Legion, Toronto Ultra, Atlanta FaZe, and Los Angeles Guerrillas. On the other hand, Group B has the hosts New York Subliners, Minnesota Rokkr, Chicago Huntsmen, and London Royal Ravens. This event could finally be the place where Chicago and Atlanta take each other on, but we will have to wait and see.

It also looks like a shoo-in for Atlanta to win this event since Florida Mutineers won’t be there. Still, only time will tell if Atlanta can recover from the downswing or if this will give the chance for another team like Minnesota, who has also fallen the furthest out of every team in the league, to shine once again.
