In a win-or-go-home match, Seattle Surge matched up against Los Angeles in the Losers Bracket at the Call of Duty League Major 4. After losing to Atlanta FaZe the day before, this is a must-win for Seattle, who's currently considered one of the hottest teams in the CDL.

Seattle had FaZe's number coming into Major 4. They started the match right, beating FaZe 250-229 in Hotel Hardpoint. But it was downhill from there. FaZe took the next three rounds, dropping Seattle to the Losers Bracket and one loss away from having their Major 4 Championship hopes stripped away from them.

When a team comes off a loss, it's interesting to see how they handle those situations. Being a better team than the Guerrillas, the expectation was that they would quickly take care of business. 

The way Seattle was playing, specifically Pred, it appeared that that would be the case. The entire team was flying around the map, finding kill after kill through the first round of Hydro Hardpoint, which they took 250-209.

Seattle played well enough to win the next round of Fortress SnD but fell just short, dropping the round 6-4 to the Guerrillas.

The third game of Asilo Control is where things got interesting. Seattle was flying around the map, making things nearly impossible for the Guerrillas. Seattle went up 2-0 in what looked like the most dominant Control performance we've seen this year. They allowed the Guerrillas to climb back into the game, finally putting them away 3-2.

They gave away the Embassy Hardpoint in the next round, 250-194. The last thing Seattle wanted was to go to a game five SnD, which is one of their worst game modes on LAN this year. The Guerrillas made it an interesting game, bringing it to a 5-4 game before Pred clutched up the final two kills at the end of round ten.

Seattle gets a big win to keep their Major 4 Championship hopes alive, and they have Pred to thank for that. He was flying around the map, having a positive K/D in all five games. He ended the match with 119 kills, setting the 2023 Call of Duty League record in kills for an entire match, breaking the previous record held by OpTic Texas Brandon "Dashy" Otell (115).
