The tables begin to turn.
Week 4's matches for the Advanced Warfare European Pro League took place last night, with all rosters from both the Premiership and Championship division testing their mettle against one another in order to climb ever higher in the leaderboards, inching closer to an invitation to the $100,000 Gfinity Call of Duty Summer Championship.
A preview for Week 4, complete with predictions and a full list of scheduled matches is available for those interested here. Maps and game types, alongside schedules and games that were streamed can be found in the Viewer Guide here.
Week 4 caused some major movement in the overall standings of the European Pro League's Premiership Division, with the two leaders finally breaking away from one another (albeit by the smallest margin possible), and a new force joining the top 3 with aplomb.
Team Vitality Storm have finally managed to pull away from their British archrivals, Epsilon, by securing a single map more than them in yesterday's showdowns. They now stand alone on the Pro League's summit, with 23 maps to 7 against Epsilon's 22 maps to 8. An easily broken advantage, but a lead nonetheless. Vitality will be especially happy with this performance considering Epsilon's recent potency at local events, providing them with some much required wiggle room for future weeks.
The real surprise is HyperGames, who have climbed into 3rd place after defeating the previous bronze medal holders Team Infused last night. An intense battle culminated in a 4-2 triumph for the French roster, continuing their two week long surge forward in placements. The sky is the limit, if they keep on performing as they have done recently.
The current Premiership Division standings are available below.
Millenium and Gamers2 faced off, resulting in a draw for both lineups and no real movement on their front. It was certainly an important game for fans of both teams, and now that they've displayed their abilities to one another it will likely be time for them to set their sights on Team Infused, who appear more fragile than ever.
Scores for each of Week 4's games can be found below.
Vitality Storm 6 - 0 OverGaming
Epsilon eSports 6 - 1 VwS
HyperGames 4 - 2 Team Infused
Millenium 3 - 3 Gamers2
IGI eSports have shown vulnerabilities, and it has resultingly cost them dearly. The roster that once stood alone at the top of the entire Championship Division has fallen, due to a mixture of lacking performances from themselves and perfectly timed victories by Spirit Gaming and exceL Black. IGI eSports tied against Liquid Gaming last night, dropping them down to 3rd place in short order.
Now, we have a real contest on for top 3.
The current standings for the entire Championship Division are available below, as well as scores for each of last night's matches.
exceL Black 6 - 0 fabE Gaming
Spirit Gaming 5 - 1 UX Gaming
IGI eSports 3 - 3 Liquid Gaming
