The Ultra (2-2) swept the London Royal Ravens (2-2) in three maps, while the Guerrillas (1-3) handed the Atlanta FaZe (3-1) their first loss in Group A, three maps to two.
The 2021 Call of Duty League is broken up into five stages, with teams competing for seeding at the major event at the end of every stage. Teams earn points for their stage results, and the top eight teams in the standings will compete in the season-ending, $2.5 million Call of Duty League Championship.
