The Call of Duty League has tabbed its current slate as Super Week, a restructured schedule of play in the wake of severe winter weather across much of the United States.
Stage I, Week 2 matches that had been scheduled for last Thursday through Sunday were moved to this week. Instead, the 20 matches from Weeks 2 and 3 are now part of Super Week, which began Monday and will run through next weekend.
The matches from Super Week will impact teams' seedings in the Major I Tournament, which is scheduled to start March 3.
On Wednesday, the Thieves opened with a 250-231 win on Checkmate Hardpoint, but the Surge bounced back to capture Raid Search and Destroy 6-4. Los Angeles prevailed 3-2 on Raid Control before Seattle won Moscow Hardpoint 250-222. On the decisive fifth map, Moscow Search and Destroy, the Thieves won 6-0.
The Royal Ravens took Moscow Hardpoint 250-160 before the Empire prevailed 6-3 on Moscow Search and Destroy and 3-2 on Garrison Control. London pushed the match to the limit by claiming Garrison Hardpoint 235-228, but Dallas sealed the victory by taking Miami Search and Destroy 6-4.
OpTic began with a dominating 250-68 win on Checkmate Hardpoint. The Ultra took Raid Search and Destroy 6-4 before Chicago pulled away with a 3-1 win on Raid Control and a 250-218 victory on Raid Hardpoint.
