Last Chance Qualifiers are the series of tournaments organized in all regions in the world to determine one team from each region that will be participating in the Call of Duty World League Championship. The Championship will be played from August 9th in Orlando, Florida. Because of the fact that this is one of the last opportunities for teams to secure their place in the competition, it is no wonder that many of them are making huge changes in their rosters, looking to get in the best shape possible.
Call of Duty is currently one of the most popular eSports titles in the world. With the announcement of the new installment, the popularity of this franchise has risen to completely new heights. Because of that, it is no wonder that many organizations are launching their own teams that will compete in the Call of Duty events in the upcoming period.
InControl Entering the Scene
The latest organization that decided to host a Call of Duty team is InControl. Yesterday, their official Twitter account announced the news about their new CoD team. The team will be participating in the North American Last Chance Qualifier. Rumors have been going around that InControl might be coming to Call of Duty scene for some time. However, nothing was officially confirmed until yesterday.
Before entering the Call of Duty scene, InControl was participating in the Smash & Madden as well as the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitions. In both of those competitions, InControl did not have a lot of success. They have been struggling to achieve significant results for a long time now. Because of that, many are not expecting a lot from their teams. This is despite the facttthe players that they have signed have previously shown a lot of potentials.
In order for them to reach the double-elimination round of the North American Last Chance Qualifiers, InControl will have to win in two matches. Otherwise, they will be eliminated from the qualifiers very quickly. If that happens, it will not be a good start of this organization.
The New Team
Last night, InControl announced that Tyree ‘LegaL’ Glover, Brandon ‘Nelson’ McKinney, Hector ‘Hec’ Crespo, and Teegan ‘TeeCLAM’ McCarthy will be joining. The latter two are not that experienced players. This is evident from the fact Hec has been playing Call of Duty professionally for less than a year. However, in that period, he has had some great results. Before joining InControl, Hec played for Fury Gaming. With that team, he managed to finish in the 13th-16th place at the CWL Anaheim Open. That event took place a couple of weeks ago.
In the first round of the Last Chance Qualifiers, InControl will be facing Anthony ‘DraMa’ Padilla, Michael ‘Swarley’ Carter, Cole ‘ColeChan’ Chancey, and Steve ‘Mochila’ Canle who currently play for FLARE eSports in the first round of the competition. If they manage to win in that match, their opponent in the second game will be Str8 Rippin. This is an organization that also joined the Call of Duty scene just a couple of months ago.
