Here is The Update for the week of Feb. 18.

Call of Duty is finally back in action

After a long wait for the Call of Duty team, eUnited is set to take the stage at the MLG Studios in Columbus, Ohio for regular season play in the CWL Pro League beginning Monday.

The squad will play seven matches across two weeks in Division B of the league, which features 16 of the top teams across the globe.

eUnited will kick off Division B’s opening week against Spanish organization Team Heretics, who shocked the Call of Duty community by qualifying for the league at a last chance qualifier last month.

The squad will also go to battle against Enigma 6 Group, Excelerate Gaming and 100 Thieves throughout the week.

Each match win will net eUnited a $2,500 bonus and 1,000 CWL Pro Points per player.

The pro league will continue all the way through July, with breaks in between for pro tournaments such as the CWL Fort Worth Open, which is set take place on March 15-17.

Samsora travels to Motor City for Frostbite 2019

After a third place finish at Genesis 6, Ezra “Samsora” Morris will be back in action this weekend at Frostbite 2019.

The Super Smash Bros: Ultimate singles bracket has over 1,200 entrants already pre-registered for the event held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in downtown Detroit.

Samsora will also be participating in the doubles event alongside MuteAce.

PUBG continues to fight in NPL Phase One

After three weeks, eUnited’s PUBG team finds themselves with work left to do.

Currently, the squad sits in 13th place (97 points) after 12 games, with only eight remaining until the end of the first season.

Should eUnited fail to break into the top-10, they would be subject to a relegation tournament later next month. Currently, they are 31 points behind 10th place Simplicity.

PUBG action continues this weekend with the NPL Royale, a friendly, non-points tournament featuring all 32 teams across the NPL and the NPL Contenders division.
