Season Continues March 25 with CWL Pro League Cross-Division Competition
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – March 18, 2019 – The second tentpole event of the 2019 Call of Duty® World League season, Presented by PlayStation®4, concluded with Luminosity Gaming winning the CWL Fort Worth Cup. The 16 CWL Pro League teams competed in a three-day tournament, offering thousands of live spectators a chance to watch the best Call of Duty® esports teams in action; ultimately Luminosity defeated Splyce to capture the cup. Reciprocity and 100 Thieves rounded-out the remaining top four placing Pro teams at CWL Fort Worth.
Luminosity’s triumph was thanks in part to the stellar performance from star player Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman, who was named CWL Fort Worth event MVP.
