- 4:00 p.m. Dallas Empire vs. Toronto Ultra
- 5:30 p.m. Atlanta FaZe vs. OpTic Gaming Los Angeles
DAL (23-11) vs. TOR (9-13)
Both of these series should be fairly cut and dry. The Empire were swept by FaZe on Saturday, but the Search and Destroy went to Round 11, the Domination was within five points, and even Round 1 Hardpoint was relatively close. In short, they're still a ridiculous good team, and I'm hoping to see another classic Empire, FaZe battle in Sunday's final.
Standing in the way is an Ultra squad that has also seemingly benefited from this unknown presence of home-field advantage. Look, maybe the Ultra ultimately win Round 4 Hardpoint against the Huntsmen, after all, Chicago did end up losing the ensuing series 3-1 to OpTic Gaming later in the day. But a hurricane knocking out Prestinni's Internet certainly didn't help matters, and it's not like they were incredibly in either the Domination or Round 1 Hardpoint either.
The Ultra have played really well in Search and Destroy though, and I think it's entirely possible they take Round 2 off the Empire. Cammy's been a living nightmare in the mode for CWL teams, and the Empire could face some trouble even with having some of the best shot callers in the world just as Clayster and C6.
If you're looking to get any sort of savings, taking the TOR Team at $1,800 instead of either of the two favorites could give you just enough wiggle room
