London is the next CDL event coming up the first weekend in February and the Chicago Huntsmen have a tough pool to battle out of. After coming out strong in week one and only dropping one map, the Huntsmen are looking to build on their momentum and remain undefeated.
Los Angeles Guerrillas (1-1)
The Los Angeles Guerrillas are a formidable opponent. With a thrilling comeback to beat the Florida Mutineers in Minnesota, the Guerrillas proved they can compete with top teams in the league. LAG are a team of respectable veterans whose experience spans countless Call of Duty titles. The captain of the Los Angeles Guerrillas, Patrick “ACHES” Price, has made a name for himself as someone who has always beat rosters with Seth “Scump” Abner and Matthew “FormaL” Piper on them.
Although the sample size is small thus far, Chicago needs to keep laser-like focus if they are to beat the Los Angeles Guerrillas. In Minnesota the Guerrillas proved to fans that if their opponent loses focus they are ready to pounce. It is paramount to not let off the gas and continue to play fundamentally sound Call of Duty. Never count a team led by ACHES out of any match.
Prediction: Chicago wins 3-2
With the new CDL format, the Huntsmen will play another team from Pool A which has yet to be announced. They will either play with Dallas Empire or Seattle Surge. Either of these matches will catch the eyes of many Call of Duty fans around the world.
Player to Watch: FormaL
FormaL had a strong week one with a dominant performance posting the fourth highest kill-to-death ratio with a 1.31. His strong assault rifle (“AR”) performance enabled the sub players on his team the ability to push forward and effect the spawns. If he can continue his dominance with an AR, this will continue to create open lanes and opportunities for his teammates to flood into.
