Millenium, MindFreak and Team Envyus Win At The COD World League Stage 2 Finals

The inaugural Call of Duty World League is fast coming to a close, and last weekend saw the Stage 2 Finals, bringing the second half of the gaming season to a close and deciding the pecking order for each region’s pro Call of Duty teams. In their respective regions, Millenium won in the EU, MindFreak in Aus/NZ and Team Envyus in the US.

The playoffs were a knockout tournament, taking the top six EU teams, top four Aus/NZ teams and top eight US teams from each region’s Stage 2 league, pitting them against one another to determine their final positions and remove a further two teams from each region from the competition. Millenium, having finished the EU league in 5th place, had to do it the hard way and win three matches back to back, beating Hypergames in the semi-finals and Team Infused in the finals, both of whom had received byes into the semis.

  1. There’s a COD league?

    Erm…. ok.

    Don’t get the appeal of E-sports. I understand Let Plays and some are enjoyable but E-sports?

    The gaming world doesn’t make sense anymore.

    Or i’m just an old fashioned gamer.
