Kismet put up an MVP performance, helping lead the New York Subliners to a CDL Major 1 victory.
Scrappy dug into his bag of tricks and pulled out the first 40-kill match of the 2023 CDL season. His performance helped Toronto send the defending world champion LA Thieves home packing. Clayster dialed back the clock, leading Vegas to a franchise-best top 6 finish.
New York shook off technical issues and bounced back strong with its new-look roster, while Atlanta and Seattle cruised into a highly anticipated winners final matchup. The Surge will be out for revenge after losing 3-0 to the FaZe in pool play.
