Minnesota Røkkr vs Toronto Ultra
Call of Duty League Stage 3
Røkkr falls to Toronto Ultra 3-1 in Stage III Group Play
The Battle of the North raged once again and again, the results are in Toronto’s favor. Røkkr looked solid in Map 1, but a snowballing momentum carried throughout the next three maps giving Toronto the victory. Cammy was the theme of the match with a performance that was head and shoulders above all other seven players on the map. Minnesota looks to rebound on Thursday against the Los Angeles Guerillas.
MAP 1 – Raid Hardpoint
A back-and-forth matchup would be an understatement in describing this map. On a hit or miss map choice for Minnesota, this was a hit. Both Ultra and Røkkr traded hills throughout the first rotation, but the last set of rotations were the game decider. Off a beautiful hold of the garage hill, Røkkr won the rotation battle to basketball, a very difficult hill to claim and secured the map win. Standy was the standout once again for Røkkr, finishing at 28/19 and 4,517 damage.
MAP 2 – Checkmate Search and Destroy
For all the strides Røkkr made in Hardpoint Map 1, all of it was lost in Map 2. On a typical auto veto in Checkmate, first bloods were always against Minnesota as Røkkr were always playing down a man. Accuracy did not get a kill until the final round, despite dropping over 1,000 damage. Ultra rolled to a 5-1 victory, Cammy led the way at 8/2 and two first bloods.
MAP 3 – Garrison Control
A solid start for Minnesota ended in a control reverse sweep. Røkkr jumped out to a 2-0 lead, ripping off offense and defensive rounds in impressive fashion. But the problem came on defense in round four and five. A streak from Standy isn’t enough to keep Toronto off the point, and Røkkr were broken on A for a second time in round five. Cammy once fried, finishing at 34/25.
MAP 4 Apocalypse Hardpoint
All of the momentum Toronto generated in Map 3 followed them into the fourth map. From the drop, Røkkr were behind on almost every rotation, fighting for 10 seconds of scrap and allowing Toronto to set up for new. No Minnesota player finished with a positive K/D. Toronto cruised to a 250-135 victory behind (once again) Cammy. He finished at 27/15 with 4,301 damage, leading the map by over 1,300 damage.
