The Call of Duty League Challengers Bracket resumed at CDL Atlanta this past weekend. Team Singularity, the amateur team who won the Challengers Bracket events at both the CDL launch weekend and CDL London, were not in attendance at CDL Atlanta. This gave other teams a chance to take first place without Team Singularity standing in their way. The result of the event saw the Atlanta FaZe Academy take first place.

The FaZe Academy team successfully fought against other amateur teams, leading them to reach the winner’s bracket fifth round. However, they fell into the losers bracket when defeated in a match-up against UYU. Following this, they defeated Rebel Esports in a 3-2 series, swept Recon 5 in a 3-0 fashion, and won against Team Insite 3-1.
In the Grand Final, the Atlanta FaZe Academy battled it out against UYU, the team that knocked them down to the losers bracket. Impressively, FaZe Academy managed to achieve first place by defeating UYU 3-1 and then 3-0.
