Toronto Ultra 3-2 OpTic Gaming Los Angeles
Toronto started off the weekend with a close 3-2 match against OpTic Gaming Los Angeles. After going 2-0 up with a 250-182 Hardpoint and 6-4 SnD where Cammy dropped a massive 17 kills.

Cammy topped the charts with a 1.26 overall K/D.
Toronto Ultra 3-2 Chicago Huntsmen
After losing the first two maps 250-228 and 6-5, Toronto Ultra had to bounce back and they did just that. They took the Domination 161-157 in an extremely close game, before Prestinni disconnected due to a power outage which forced a 5v4 for Toronto. This allowed them to win this match and force a game five, hoping for the reverse sweep. A 6-4 game five saw Toronto take the series and secure their spot in the semi-finals. While this match wasn’t entirely fair, rules are rules and therefore Toronto get the free map 4 win.
Toronto Ultra 3-1 Dallas Empire (Semi-Final)
Dallas Empire were extremely unlucky this weekend, they had one of the closest 3-0’s of the year against Atlanta FaZe and without doubt, this is the closest 3-1 there has been so far. Toronto took map 1 250-247, before winning SnD in round 11. Dallas absolutely dominated the Domination winning 196-123 but Toronto responded with a 250-244 Hardpoint to take the series 3-1. This was an exceptionally close series, with Cammy continuing to excel dropping a massive 111 kills this series.
Toronto Ultra 3-2 Atlanta FaZe (Final)
After Atlanta FaZe hadn’t lost a map all weekend, many saw this as a clear win for FaZe. However, Toronto started off strong taking map 1 250-247, another extremely close Hardpoint. Map 2 saw FaZe dominate, winning 6-0 easily in one of the fastest SnD’s all season. In the Domination Toronto stopped FaZe from winning their sixth Gun Runner Dom in a row as they took the map 165-157. FaZe responded with an excellent 250-143 to force a game five. In the game five Toronto won the round 11 to take the series and their own Home event. Methodz finished this series with a 1.34 overall K/D, the highest in the lobby.
Toronto Ultra looked extremely strong this weekend. They secured their Winners Round 1 spot for the CDL Playoffs and will take on the London Royal Ravens.
