The second global open event of the 2018/19 CWL Season has concluded.
North American roster Luminosity Gaming (pictured, above) took home the championship after defeating Splyce in the Grand Finals. Coming in third place was UK team, Reciprocity.
Reciprocity making waves
Prior to CWL Fort Worth, Reciprocity benched Australian player Denholm ‘Denz’ Taylor in favour of upcoming UK talent Dylan ‘Dylan’ Henderson, a player that had made his debut at CWL Birmingham in 2018.
Captained by longtime UK player Tom ‘Tommey’ Trewren, Reciprocity have the right amount of aggression, leadership and team synergy heading into the next part of the CWL Pro League and CWL London.
Red Reserve finding form
The future looked increasingly uncertain for Red Reserve after laying off numerous staff and players before Fort Worth. Having retained their UK Call of Duty roster – considered to be the best in Europe – the team were intent on securing a high placement.
Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall & co started the knockout stage of the tournament with a comfortable sweep over defending world champions Team Envy. Red then dropped into the loser’s bracket, where Skrapz faced off against twin brother and Reciprocity player Bradley ‘Wuskin’ Marshall.
Finishing the tournament with a top six placement, Red Reserve will be looking to build on this result in their upcoming CWL Pro League matches which begin on March 25th.
The next CWL global open event will be CWL London, taking place from May 3rd to 5th at the Copper Box Arena in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
