The third operation of Checkmate Gamings $ 2,500 Black Ops 4 Tournament started its first action on December 16, with some of the biggest teams in Call of Duty Esports.
On the back of their remarkable victory at the recent CWL Vegas event, OpTic Gaming resumed its online domination by sweeping its two games to reach the winner's bracket finale for the third ProDown in a row, which has already claimed victory in the first two.
On the back of the bracket, Team Reciprocity made a surprising dash to their first WB final, which included a 3-2 upset victory over 100 thieves in the second round.
The two teams will play for the right to move on to the Grand Finals when day two starts at 1
However, it's important not to forget Losers Bracket as there are a few strong teams still living in 100 thieves and Luminosity Gaming. The pair also turns out on day two, probably around the same time as the WB final is played out.
100 Thieves will look to make three straight trips to the Grand Final, the first two to come via Loser's Bracket and ending with OpTic losses.
Several remarkable teams have already been eliminated from this week's ProDown, including Splyce, FaZe Clan, Evil Geniuses, Team Envy, G2 Esports and the former Str8 Rippin roster.
The most surprising elimination was Splyce, who lost both of their games facing a quick exit just one week after their third place on CWL Vegas.
