Call of Duty League franchise, Atlanta FaZe, hosted a $25,000 Black Ops 4 tournament which culminated in FaZe taking the top prize.
The CDL off-season has given us some great throwback events already from Hitch’s MW2 tournament to the Ghosts charity event earlier in the month.
The latest throwback to grace our screens was of course the Atlanta FaZe Black Ops 4 Invitational. It took place from October 23-25.
A total of 20 teams participated with a group stage and double elimination bracket stage. The teams competed in a best of five series for the top prize of $15,000.
From current pros to academy players to amateurs, there was a range of talent involved. However, the gameplay did not disappoint and provided us with some Black Ops 4 nostalgia.

How the tournament was won
Atlanta FaZe were clear favourites heading into the weekend and they started off very strong.
The boys on FaZe went 6-0 in their group, failing to drop a single map. Unreal plays from FaZe were on display all weekend, including this one from Cellium on day one.
FaZe then progressed to the bracket stage where they dropped their first map against HYXR but still secured the 3-1 victory.
They then beat Dallas Empire 3-1 in winner’s finals, only to meet them again in the grand final to play a best of seven series.
Despite going 2-0 down, Atlanta FaZe won four consecutive maps to take the crown and the $15,000 prize.
