Taking place at the Georgia Conference Centre, the 170 team event consisted of some of the very best Call of Duty talent from around the globe, as they battled it out for a share of a $200,000 prize pool and some of those crucial Pro Points. Let's see how the team got on.

Beginning the tournament in group A, widely considered to be the "group of death" it would certainly be a challenge for the squad to make it out of the group. The team came out firing on all cylinders, defeating MLG Vegas champs Rise Nation in a thrilling 5-game series. A great start for the squad. The next game against Enigma 6 was another close series but E6 were able to take a 3-1 victory. Infused were now 1-1 in the group. The next game against North American powerhouse FaZe would be crucial.
Considered to be one of the very best teams on Infinite Warfare, Infused had it all to do. Another back and forth series versus some top quality opposition went all the way to a deciding game 5. FaZe were able to take the series 3-2 meaning we had to beat Mindfreak to secure their place in the Loser's Bracket. The squad took an early 2-0 lead and looked almost certain to secure the victory but the Australians were still fighting and the series went all the way to yet another game 5. The S&D went all the way to a round 11 which unfortunately went in favour of Mindfreak, placing Infused in the Loser's Bracket.
The opening round of the Loser's Bracket saw Infused take on Set To Destroy, where the boys in red were able to take the series 3-1 to go against Evil Geniuses in a re-match from MLG Vegas. The squad was in fine form, comfortably beating the North American side 3-1 to advance into the next round where they would face fellow European team Orbit. Another game 5 thriller for the boys in red but this time it went in their favour and their run in the Loser's Bracket continued! Could they go all the way?
Another European clash followed, with the team set to battle it out against Team 3G, a team which had managed to land a place in the Championship Bracket. Infused were on fire. They were able to take down 3G 3-1 to continue their fantastic run through the Loser's Bracket. Splyce would be their next opponent and many fans were expecting an incredibly close game between the two teams but the boys in red swept them aside 3-0! Infused had now secured a top 6 finish, could they go one better and make it into the top 4?
Their next opponents would be Luminosity Gaming. Could the squad keep up their performances and pull off another great result? Unluckily, the squad were beaten 3-0 by Luminosity and were now out of the tournament.
GGWP to all of the teams we played. A masive thank you to MLG for hosting yet another fantastic event. Infused CoD finish CWL Atlanta in 6th place, securing $8,000 and 8,000 Pro Points each. The squad will be back in action next weekend at CWL Paris!
