Bronze changes hands again.
Week 5'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 5, 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 5 rebuilt the status quo that was shattered in week 4, as Team Infused climbed the ranks once again and an all-British top 3 became a reality.
Team Infused put on an impressive showing this week following their fall from grace in Week 4, managing to secure a 5-1 win over OverGaming to propel themselves back into the bronze seat. It certainly helped that HyperGames fell at the first hurdle of holding their podium finish, as they tyed against 7th placing squad VwS.
Vitality Storm and Epsilon eSports are once again seperated by a mere hair's breadth, following successful skirmishes on both fronts in their matches last night. Vitality Storm flawlessly defeated the Spanish Gamers2 roster, without losing a single map. Epsilon eSports followed suit, dispatching Millenium with little difficulty, only conceding a single map during their campaign towards triumph. Alas, this single map is worth something when only 2 enable the lead the Vitality Storm currently possesses. An intensely close finish for the two British powerhouses.
The current Premiership Division standings are available below.
HyperGames will have a fire lit underneath them once again - they'll be looking to capitalise on this and push forward next week.
