The Call of Duty World League Sydney Open 1 kicked off with a bang today in Sydney, Australia as Tainted Minds secured a 3-0 victory over Asia Championship winners UnVeiL NoVa in Match 1 of a heated game of Call of Duty Infinite Warfare.
The very first APAC LAN event for the 2017 season saw a stellar performance from the Australian-based team, who refused to let UnVeiL NoVa catch a break for the entirety of their match-up.
The stellar four-man team first secured an easy 250-94 victory on Breakout HP before cementing their domination with a quick 6-3 win on Crusher S&D. They then continued sweeping up with an impressive 19-3 final win on Precinct Uplink – and a cheeky last second score.
Other teams participating in CWL Sydney Open 1 include the 2016 regional champions Mindfreak, as well as Asia Championship runner-up and SONY Call Of Duty Asia pro team RamPaGe Gaming.
