32 teams went to Columbus, Ohio to compete in the 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship, presented by PlayStation 4, and Evil Geniuses were crowned the 2018 Call of Duty champion, winning the lion’s share of the $1.5 million prize pool!

After an incredible weekend of Call of Duty action — with many hyped up teams falling out of the competition –, Evil Geniuses and Team Kaliber went head to head in the Grand Finals of the 2018 Call of Duty: World League Championship. Evil Geniuses took a quick 2-0 series lead, but Team Kaliber climbed their way back to force a Game 5 in series one. In the second best of five, Evil Geniuses took the series 3-0 to win the event!

Here are the top 12 placings:

  • 1st Place: Evil Geniuses // $600,000
  • 2nd Place: Team Kaliber // $200,000
  • 3rd Place: FaZe // $100,000
  • 4th Place: eUnited // $80,000
