CWL Fort Worth is now less than two weeks away. The Call of Duty community is looking forward to another event as CWL Vegas seems to have been ages ago. We look at how Division B of the Pro League finished, which, in turn, confirmed the CWL Fort Worth pools.
CWL Division B ends
The last week of CWL division B proved to be an incredible one. Going into the week, Team Heretics, Splyce and eUnited claimed the top 3. 100 Thieves however, had other ideas. 100T stormed through the final week of competition finishing on top of the division with a 5-2 record. eUnited and Team Heretics, also on 5-2, took the second and third spots.
Splyce certainly didn’t continue their hot form from week 1. A 1-3 record left them 4-3 overall, a performance that a lot of the CoD community didn’t see happening. Where 100 Thieves built on their 1st week 1-2 record, Team Envy for the most part, did not. They did however, take an impressive series against eUnited, 3-0. Envy went 3-4 for the whole two weeks, they sit 6th in Division B.
Enigma 6 and Denial Esports also improved from their poor week 1. E6 were 1-3 heading into week 2, after convincing displays, they sit above Envy in 5th with a 3-4 record. It wasn’t looking pretty for Denial after week 1, sitting 0-4 and in last place. Going 2-1 in week 2 which included beating Splyce. Denial have leapfrogged Excelerate into 7th with an overall record of 2-5.
As I just mentioned, the roster move made by Excelerate didn’t improve the team. Week 2 ended with a 0-4 record, and an overall 1-6.

CWL Fort Worth Pools
With Division B coming to an end, the pools for the next Call of Duty World League event have been confirmed. CWL Fort Worth is to take place on March 15th – 17th. Open Bracket teams will be looking to prove a point. Likewise, many former pro players who didn’t make the league will want to do the same.
With some teams in the pro league not performing to their ability, it has made certain pools very difficult.
Gen.G and Team Heretics will be the teams to watch in this pool and should be able to dominate the two others, UYU and Denial Esports. The match to watch will be the series between Gen.G and Heretics to see who comes out on top.
Pool B is a group where if teams get their acts together, it could be anyone’s Pool to take. However, after their impressive week 2, 100 Thieves are set to continue their winning ways into CWL Fort Worth. No match will be easy though, Red Reserve, Enigma 6 and Evil Geniuses, who are all rumored to make changes, could challenge for this pool.
This is the first Pool that is going to be a difficult time for all teams. Pool C has Midnight Esports, who are currently 2nd place in Division A. Team Splyce, despite a rough week 2, are still a top 3 team in the world and Luminosity Gaming, who had an incredible week 2 for, will be looking to continue tear up competition.
This pool is difficult to predict, especially as LG beat Midnight comfortably in the last week of Division A. Splyce, will need to improve to compete but I think they will step up. As for the fourth team Excelerate, it may be a very difficult weekend.
There is always a group of death and for CWL Fort Worth, Pool D is that group. eUnited, OpTic Gaming, Team Envy and Team Reciprocity. eUnited must be angry, they can’t seem to get rid of OpTic Gaming this year. Due to OpTic’s performance in Division A, though with a substitute, they have been paired up again with eU. On paper, the Call of Duty community would pick OG and eUnited as their top two. However, Team Envy, showed signs that they are improving during week 2 of Division B and they beat eUnited whilst doing so. In addition to that, Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price loves beating OpTic and has done so at many events throughout Call of Duty history. Finally, Team Reciprocity had a bad pro league history but still have a lot of talent. They have also added Dylan ‘Dylan’ Henderson to their roster, one of the standout players not to make it to league so far in Black Ops 4.
Presenting the pools for the #CWLPS4 Fort Worth pro tournament! Watch the action from the next major event on March 15-17.
With less than two weeks now until CWL Fort Worth, the first main roster period has opened. In this next week and a half, confirmations will be made, and changes will be done. Rumors have already began to circulate around Twitter and Reddit. With Enigma 6, Evil Geniuses, and Excelerate all set to be making big moves to their rosters. It will be interesting to see what happens, adding to the excitement of another CWL event.
