Dallas Empire sweep through New York to advance at CDL Major 2



The Dallas Empire defeated the New York Subliners by a score of 3-0 in the second Major tournament of the Call of Duty League. It was a clean sweep for Dallas, which now advances further in the winners group while New York falls to the losers group.

There was quite a stir in this match given how close it was to the first Major. New York barely lost to Dallas when James “Clayster” Eubanks tried to get revenge on his old team. However, this time, the story was completely different, as the Empire got back on track in a big way.

Dallas Empire wastes no time in the first major game

This match had been altered written all over it. The Subliners were coming off a decent performance in Stage 2, going 4-1 to win the second seed in Group A. Although, they were still considered the losers against Dallas given the Empire’s roster status and past results.

On the Dallas side, they didn’t perform too well during Stage 2, finishing with a 3-2 record. What worried some Empire fans was their loss to OpTic Chicago in the final match before the Major. Of course, these concerns were allayed when Dallas wiped map after map of New York in the first game of the group of winners of the Stage 2 Major.

Every member of the Empire roster performed well, with Ian “Crimsix” Porter and Cuyler “Huke” Garland leading the team. Both players finished with K / D over 1.20 en route to Dallas winning every map in the series.

The Search and Destroy stands out in particular, as the Empire swept the Subliners 6-0. Things just weren’t going well for New York, with Mackenzie “Mack” Kelley especially lacking. It’s clear the Subliners have the potential to be a superior team in the CDL, but once again, consistency comes back to haunt them.

New York now falls to the underdog and will play again on Friday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Dallas plays the Minnesota ROKKR tomorrow, April 9, at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time in round 2 of the winner.
