Share post:

The Toronto Ultra locked down the No. 2 seed for the Call of Duty League’s Stage 3 Major by beating the New York Subliners 3-1 on Sunday as qualifying action came to an end.

Toronto was one of three teams to enter the final day of qualifying with a 5-1 record. The other two squads, OpTic Texas and the Los Angeles Thieves, were pitted against each other, meaning only one could improve to 6-1.

That ended up being OpTic, which downed Los Angeles 3-1.

Although Texas and the Ultra both finished qualifying at 6-1, Toronto had a one-map advantage in win-loss differential (plus-12 to plus-11), allowing it to come away with the second seed.

The Atlanta FaZe had already locked up the No. 1 seed on Saturday, closing qualifying with a perfect 7-0 record.

In Sunday’s other match, the Miami Heretics swept the Los Angeles Guerrillas 3-0.

All 12 CDL teams played seven qualifying matches ahead of the Stage 3 Major, which starts Thursday in Toronto. Every team is headed to the double-elimination tournament, and the qualifying matches determined seeding. Each qualifier win was worth 10 points.

Whichever team wins the major will get $150,000 and 100 CDL points. The total prize pool is worth $375,000, with the top eight teams at the event splitting those funds.

Toronto won the Stage 1 Major in January. Atlanta won the Stage 2 Major in March.

On Sunday, the Ultra and Subliners split the first two maps before Toronto prevailed 3-2 on Invasion Control and 250-158 on Karachi Hardpoint.

OpTic and Los Angeles saw their match play out similarly. The teams were tied 1-1 before Texas pulled away with a 3-2 win on Invasion Control and a 250-86 blowout on Vista Hardpoint.

Miami was never threatened by the Guerrillas, polishing off the sweep with a 3-0 rout on Karachi Control.

As for major play, the top eight seeds will start in the winners bracket, where four first-round matches will be played. Losers of those matches are sent to the elimination bracket to square off with a bottom-four seed.

Seeding for the Stage 3 Major is as follows:
1. Atlanta FaZe

3. OpTic Texas
4. Los Angeles Thieves
5. New York Subliners
6. Carolina Royal Ravens
7. Seattle Surge
