Atlanta Faze Win the 2021 CDL Stage 4 Major

They’ve done it again: Altanta FaZe are your 2021 CDL Stage 4 Major champions! Watching the boys in black and red play has truly been one of the chief delights of the ongoing CDL season, and it’s fair to say that the best is yet to come! Leave it to Atlanta to deliver a spectacular showing worthy of the history books.

The fact that they’ve reached the finals of each and every single Major thus far is worthy of the highest praise and commendation. And, well, it’s impossible not to be hyped for what’s to come — the impeding 2021 CDL playoffs are bound to deliver in all the right ways!

It did not come easy, though, as the Dallas Empire went blow-for-blow throughout the entire grand finals. And boy was it a sight for sore eyes!

2021 CDL | A Spectacular Triumph From FaZe

It was as back-and-forth as it gets, and for a brief moment in time, it seemed as though Atlanta had finally met their match. Dallas took the lead early on Garrison (Hardpoint) after which FaZe quickly stabilized on Standoff (SND) and Garisson (Control). A double round of Moscow (Hardpoint and SND) then went in favor of Dallas (the former of which was an absolute nail-bitter), before Atlanta responded in force on Raid (Control).

It was truly a game of inches up until the very end when FaZe stepped up big time and blew Dallas out of the water with a spectacular 250-98 showing on Apocalypse (Hardpoint). They had all the momentum they needed to close things out on Raid (SND), and, as we’ve all seen from their recent performances, they only need an inch to take a mile.

They were cool, calm, and collected, and had shown incredible resilience under pressure — just what you’d expect from a team of their caliber.

The fifth and final Major is scheduled to begin on July 1st, so make sure to mark your calendars! Atlanta are heavily favored to once against go the distance and get their hands raised. They are the de facto best team in the Call of Duty League, and if their most important catalysts deliver yet again, the FaZe boys are all but guaranteed to add yet another Major to their pedigrees!
