Over this past weekend, team OpTic Gaming won the 2017 Call of Duty World League (CWL) Championship.

Hosted by Major League Gaming in partnership with Activision Publishing, OpTic Gaming won this year’s title over Team EnVyUs. Held in Orlando, Fl., the tournament featured the world’s top 32 Call of Duty teams from North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region as they competed at the five-day event for a share of the $1.5 million championship prize pool, and the finale to this year’s CWL season which offered $4 million in total prize purse, the largest in Call of Duty history.

Call of Duty esports reported a substantial rise in competition this year, with a year-over-year increase in participation of 400%. The playing field has also leveled in 2017, with nine teams capturing tournament wins around the world; including, Splyce, the first-ever European team to win a CWL event on North American soil.
