To celebrate the launch of the EU Pro League for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, we decided to kick off the opening two fixtures at the Gfinity Arena in London.
All 8 teams were in action as they competed to secure some early points and take a step closer to becoming the Premiership Champions.
Miss any of the action? Scroll down for a full recap!
Team Infused 4 - 2 VwS Gaming
In what was a very back and forth series, both squads were tied at 2 maps a piece and it was looking like we were heading for a draw. Thanks to some great strategical play from Infused in the final S&D maps, they managed to secure all 3 points in a close series.
Gamers2 3 - 3 Over Gaming
Our second game of the day was an all-Spanish affair. After 4 maps, Over Gaming were looking to pull off an early upset, taking a convincing 3-1 lead over their fellow Spaniards. Gamers2 looked down and out but they were far from it. The team of Spanish veterans pulled the deficit back and managed to snatch away the win from Over Gaming.
HyperGames 0 - 6 Epsilon eSports
This match had potential to be a close one, but was far from it. A newly formed Epsilon roster looked to replicate their online performances against a team of French veterans including Maxxie and TonyJS.
Epsilon took Solar HP by a solitary point to take the early lead against HG. Epsilon kept the momentum going by taking the next two maps in convincing fashion, securing a 3-0 lead.
Was there any way back for the French?
Unfortunately not, as Epsilon swept them aside taking the series 6-0.
It's looking good for Epsilon in the early stages, but can they win the league?
Team Vitality 5 - 1 Millenium
The final game of the day saw Vitality take on an all-star Millenium squad fronted by the French Monster, Gotaga.
Similar to the previous series, Vitality took a dominant 3-0 lead thanks to some stellar performances from Watson and Tommey.
Vitality took the next two maps to secure at least three point from this encounte, however Millenium showed some signs of life by taking game 6.
Day one of the Gfinity EU Pro League is done. Join us for Day 2 LIVE from the Gfinity Arena on MLG.tv/Gfinity from 12pm BST.
