The Tainted Minds, Chiefs, Mindfreak (the 2016 regional champions) are expected to compete with the winners of the 2017 Call of Duty Asia Championship: UnVeil NoVa from Singapore and the runner-up, Rampage from Malaysia.

If the teams Mindfreak and the Chiefs struck a chord with you, then you’ll remember that they played in the CWL Atlanta Open a few weeks back.

Australian Favorites Return

Mindfreak had an impressive play at the CWL Atlanta Open alongside with the Chiefs.

The South Pacific underdogs built momentum in the competition while in Atlanta, but because these teams will be back on their home turf we expect them to be in the top 8 by the end of the Sydney Open.

Shifting our focus from Mindfreak and the Chiefs, teams should be aware of Call of Duty Asia Champion UnVeil NoVa from Singapore.

UnVeil NoVa To Win The Sydney Open?

UnVeil NoVa started as a sniping team in 2011, which has grown into the best Call of Duty competitive team in Asia.

Earlier this year, UnVeil NoVa took 1st place at the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Asia Championship. Besting 6 other teams, UnVeil NoVa acquired $12K USD.

Although the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Asia Championship was small, their skills and teamwork could lead them to win the CWL Sydney Open.

 

 

We’re excited to see which teams will place in the top 10 of the CWL Sydney Open after this weekend.

Good luck and #GameOn to all of the competitiors! Keep your eyes on the prize.
