Call of Duty World League Dallas Open Champions Announced, Event Delayed Due to Bomb Scare

In a press release, Activision has announced the winners of the recently concluded Call of Duty World League, and it’s none other than Team Kaliber! Rounding out the top four final spots are Team Splyce, OpTic Gaming and FaZe Clan.

Team Kaliber claimed the largest piece of the event’s $200,000 prize pool, which is part of the season’s $4.2 million total prize pool — the largest in Call of Duty eSports history.

Here’s the final rankings for the CWL Dallas Open:

1st – Team Kaliber
2nd – Splyce
3rd – OpTic Gaming
4th – FaZe Clan
5th/6th – Echo Fox / eUnited
7th/8th – Luminosity / Team EnVyUs
In other Call of Duty eSports news, the event itself experienced delays (twice) due to two separate bomb threats. The first one happened on the opening day, with the other one during Sunday, which was the finals.
The event, which was held at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, thankfully continued as planned with no one hurt. Event officials had to evacuate the center due to the second bomb scare. This was originally reported by local TV reporter Rebecca Lopez when a security guard saw a backpack that looked like it had dynamite in it, as well as the authorities getting a call from someone saying the center would be blown up in 30 minutes.

Given how some people hate Call of Duty, this might be taking it to a whole other level. Thankfully no one got hurt, and let’s hope this kind of thing doesn’t happen again.
