During the Qualifiers in the final Major of the Call of Duty League, the London Royal Ravens get bounced from a spot at Champs by the Los Angeles Guerrillas on the second weekend of Stage 5. London put themselves in a tough spot to make Champs from subpar performances throughout the year and lacked the ability to close out tight games.

While the Guerrillas aren't yet eliminated as the No.11 seed, the chances they're going to make it to Champs are very slim. But with this win, they snap a 10-match losing streak, and their fate lies in the hands of a few other teams.

There were tons of positives to take from the Guerrillas. As a young team, beating the likes of London are vital to the growth of each player. Players like JoeDeceives have slaying potential that can take over a map at any moment. He did that in both Hardpoint rounds, dropping 35 kills in the first round on Fortress and 25 in the second map on Hotel. JoeDeceives shared his Fortress Hardpoint strategy, which proved to be a strong game plan.

The other young player, Exceed, was a big positive as they focus on their future. He was a key player in this win, dropping 52 kills in the four rounds, with a 1.13 overall K/D and 6425 damage. 

After breaking down who is likely to go to CDL Champs, London and Guerrillas were not a part of the topic. With London officially being eliminated, the Guerrillas could be next on the chopping block, despite the dominating win.
