The New York Subliners are champions of their own Home Series, taking down the Chicago Huntsmen in the Grand Final to become the fifth different team to win a Call of Duty League tournament this season. After having reached three semifinals in a row previously, they finally were able to clinch the win and head to their first Grand Final and dominate for the win over the Chicago Huntsmen.

A Pro Overwatch team announces a sponsorship deal with a PYRAMID SCHEME COMPANY and fans are obviously outraged, NY Subliners Win Their First Ever Grand Final at CDL New York; Sweep Chicago Huntsmen and Land At 5th in Overall Standings, and a CSGO pro is criticized over a homophobic in-game knife name used during a huge national tournament.
A statement 3-0 sweep of Huntsmen, who had defeated them earlier in the tournament, confirmed what a lot of people were already thinking – that New York was a much-improved and powerful team compared to earlier on in the season when the team seemed to continue to falter when it came to big pressure situations as a team.
The win placed them solidly in fifth in the season standings, while the Huntsmen moved up to second place overall. The Subliners will be taking home 50,000 in prize money for their showing in the tournament and sets them up nicely to compete this upcoming week in the UK as the London Royal Ravens will host their second tournament of the season with the Mutineers, Dallas Empire, and OpTic Gaming LA will all be in attendance.
