The North American organization eUnited has added its first ring after the team won the CWL Championships 2019 after being 100 Thieves 3-2 in the Grand Finals. eUnited will be taking home $800,000.
eUnited began its run in the tournament by finishing first in its group. The team had a relatively easy group, beating the likes of Elevate, RBL Esports, and Celtic FC Esports. Therefore, eUnited finished 3-0 in the opening pool play.
Going into bracket play, eUnited would make swift work of Team WaR, winning 3-1. However, the North American team would face an unlikely challenge as Evil Geniuses took the team to a map 5. However, eUnited clutched the victory, winning 3-2 overall.

In round 4, eUnited would dismantle Units to then play against North American rivals OpTic Gaming. In what would have been a fairy-tale ending to the OpTic era, eUnited would shut the dream down after winning 3-1 in an emphatic fashion. This would push OpTic Gaming into the losers bracket.
Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag’s 100 Thieves managed to secure a quick victory over OpTic Gaming 3-0, moving 100T to the Grand Final. As expected, the titan clash between 100 Thieves and eUnited led to an inevitable map 5 after a back and forth battle. However, eUnited would manage to secure the victory after winning the last Search and Destroy.
The tiny terrors of Chris "Simp" Leh and Tyler "aBeZy" Pharris played exceptionally well. Many consider this event to be Preston "Prestinni" Sanderson’s best performance so far. Overall, every player on eUnited is experiencing their first Call of Duty Championship win except for James "Clayster" Eubanks, who has now won two.
Next year's Call of Duty season will feature a fully-franchised model similar to the Overwatch League. It is currently unknown as to whether eUnited will purchase a Franchise slot for next year. With a similar story to Evil Geniuses, this could have been the last event for the North American organization in Call of Duty.
