OpTic Chicago defeated LA Thieves at CDL Kickoff Classic event

OpTic Chicago has established itself as a team to beat the 2021 season of the CDL, after a dominant success against LA Thieves during the Kickoff Classic event.

The highly awaited match between Call of Duty Titans turned into an anti-climatic, one-sided affair, with OpTic Chicago looking like a team to beat for the 2021 season.

Though there were no CDL points up for grabs, the Kickoff Classic game was an opportunity to see all twelve teams in action following a tumultuous offseason-where the rosters shifted drastically as the league switched from 5v5 to 4v4. 

The most awaited match was between LA Robbers, who returned to active Call of Duty after being missing last year, and their renamed OpTic Chicago opponents, who had their own revival at the helm with original owner Hector Rodriguez. 

OpTic Chicago led from the start, despite both having heavyweight rosters. The opening of the Garrison Hardpoint ended 250-136, with OpTic feeling amazingly relaxed.

Search and Destroy at Checkpoint was the nearest LA Robbers to turn the tide. They took a few rounds, but at the end of the day they couldn’t take the ultimate victory, with Dylan “Envoy” Hannon playing some especially impressive games to secure Game 6-4. 

The final round of Control on Raid followed as planned, with OpTic outscoring them at every turn to win the match with a perfect 3-0 sweep. 

It was a similar outcome for Dallas Empire vs. New York Subliners, where James “Clayster” Eubanks couldn’t beat his old teammates to the perfect grudge match result, losing 3-0.

Although it was definitely an exciting show from OpTic Chicago and Dallas Empire, it’s still early days for both clubs, with the 2020 season showing that there’s plenty of time to turn the tide. You will view all the results for the weekend below.
