The event taking place in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States saw over 250 teams taking part in a massive Open Bracket, with the top four teams making it through to join the 16 seeded pool play teams.
Such a huge event was rewarded with an excellent Grand Final between two North American teams, with Luminosity Gaming coming from the lower bracket having to win two series whilst their opponents only need one. LG started off by taking the first BO5 series away from Team Kaliber, the first they have lost on LAN in COD WW2.
Team Kaliber, the winners of CWL Dallas, are able to take the first map of the second series with an insane 250-249 scoreline on London Docks. A double header of Ardennes Forest is what follows, with S&D up first going the way of TK, tying up the series. Next up is Capture the Flag, which Team Kaliber are able to win, taking the game to 2-1 in their favor. One way or another the title will be decided on Sainte Marie du Mont, but it will be on it's second showing, as the Hardpoint goes to Luminosity Gaming evening out the series; meaning the final map will be required. Search and Destroy Sainte Marie is where it will go down. Team Kaliber are just too strong for Luminosity, and are able to take the victory! Team Kaliber are back to back champions, as they take the victory at CWL New Orleans!
