The unbeaten Atlanta FaZe moved into first place in the standings in qualifying for the Call of Duty League Major 4 on Sunday.

The FaZe won all three maps in their match against the Los Angeles Guerrillas.

The Toronto Ultra moved into third place with a 3-1 win over the Miami Heretics, and the Minnesota Rokkr outlasted OpTic Texas 3-2.

All 12 teams taking part in qualifying will make the Major 4 bracket, to be held June 27-30 in Burbank, Calif. Seeding will be determined by the qualifying matches, which run through June 23.

The tournament will have a double-elimination format, with all matches best-of-five until the grand final, which is best-of-seven. The winner will get 100 CDL points and the runner-up gets 75. The prize money has not been announced.

The FaZe survived a close call in their first map, Sub Base Hardpoint, winning 250-247. They then wrapped up the match with victories on 6 Star Search & Destroy (6-3) and Highrise Control (3-0).

Tyler “aBeZy” Pharris of the U.S. led the winners with 53 kills, and teammate and countryman McArthur “Cellium” Jovel had a plus-10 kills-deaths differential. Conor “Diamondcon” Johst of Canada had 59 kills and a plus-8 differential for the Guerrillas.

The Ultra began their match with a 250-203 win on 6 Star Hardpoint, but the Heretics bounced back to take Karachi Search & Destroy 6-1. Toronto took it from there, winning 3-2 on Highrise Control and 250-188 on Karachi Hardpoint.

Thomas “Scrap” Ernst of the U.S. posted 88 kills and a plus-17 differential for the Ultra, while Adrian “MettalZ” Serrano of Spain paced the Heretics at 80 and plus-6.

OpTic and the Rokkr traded victories through the first four maps. OpTic won 250-170 on 6 Star Hardpoint, but the Rokkr answered 6-5 on Rio Search & Destroy. Texas again went ahead with a 3-2 win on Invasion Control, but Minnesota came back with a 250-144 decision on Vista Hardpoint. The Rokkr claimed the match with a 6-5 win on Karachi Search & Destroy.
