The Canadian representatives of the Call of Duty League, Toronto Ultra, are your new Kickoff Classic winners!
As the Call of Duty League 2022 season is now at the door, Activision held another Kickoff Classic before the regular season. All of the CDL teams have participated in the tournament and we have seen many surprising results from some teams and players. In the end, Toronto Ultra lifted the Kickoff Classic trophy, taking down Seattle Surge in the Grand Finals.
As we mentioned in our earlier articles, Atlanta FaZe, Toronto Ultra, OpTic Texas, and Minnesota ROKKR started their journey from the quarterfinals. On the other hand, the remaining teams competed against each other in the first round of the competition. Seattle Surge, New York Subliners, Los Angeles Thieves, and Florida Mutineers were the winners of the first round. Nonetheless, London Royal Ravens, Boston Breach, Paris Legion, and Los Angeles Guerrillas bid farewell to the competition in the first round.
Ultra had a fairly easy game against Mutineers in the quarterfinals to move on in the tournament. Coming up in the semifinals, they had a rough matchup against Los Angeles Thieves. The Canadian team barely reached the Grand Finals with a score of 3-2. Los Angeles Thieves had a wonderful performance against the finalists of last year.
To win the Kickoff Classic trophy, Toronto Ultra overcame the Seattle Surge barrier after a 3-1 win. Despite the loss, Seattle Surge had incredible performances before reaching the finals stage, taking down Atlanta FaZe and New York Subliners.
