Dallas Empire have won the Call of Duty League Championship 2020.
After making their way through winners bracket to secure a final spot, Dallas Empire proved unstoppable in the final from the get-go - accumulating a 4-0 lead with relative ease after having the one map advantage.
Atlanta FaZe showed some signs of life by winning the second Hardpoint on Gun Runner, opening the possibility of a classic FaZe reverse comeback they’ve become synonymous with.
Dallas Empire, however, weren’t about to let their lead slide. A climactic Search and Destroy saw each team secure back-and-forth victories, before Ian “C6” Porter proved exactly why he’s one of the best players in the world with some stunning plays.

Congratulations to @DallasEmpire on a phenomenal season and Champs win!
It’s a deserved win for the team, who have arguably been the most consistent of the entire Call of Duty League; winning three home series in total over the entire season.
It’s a particularly historic win for player James “Clayster” Eubanks too - who won last year’s Call of Duty Championship with team eUnited alongside FaZe players aBeZy and Simp.
