The Call of Duty League champion title remains with Dallas Empire as Atlanta FaZe fails to snatch the crown from the reigning victor.
Atlanta FaZe loses to Dallas Empire in a 3-1 final match this weekend—making it their second but the most crucial loss in the online 2020 CoD Chicago Home series.
This second home series win for the Dallas Empire, however, was a much-needed win to redeem the team name from being winless against the Atlanta FaZe and the Chicago Huntsmen.

Dallas Empire was a two-fold balanced team. With veterans, Ian “C6” Porter and James “Clayster” Eubanks, leading its three you promising members, Shotzzy, iLleY, and Huke, the took the great giant that is Atlanta FaZe.
Dallas started strong with several early points against Atlanta and with a “better spawn rotations” during the Gun Runner Hardpoint. Although Atlanta dominated most of the gunfights, Dallas Empire still came out with the first win bagging a 250-222 score on Game 1.

Atlanta FaZe coach defends Empire from fan outrage
Meanwhile, Atlanta FaZe coach James Crowder gets into a Twitter rage against a few of their very own fans as he defends Dallas Empire from online bashing.
Reportedly, the FazE fans have been dubbing Dallas as “onliners” after the 2020 Chicago Home series results.
On Monday, Crowder tweeted about their loss against Dallas Empire, saying that they’ve made “too many mistakes against the best team in the game.”
A fan replied, sarcastically correcting the gaming coach with “*best online team.” Apparently, the shaded tweet did not sit well with Crowder, which resulted in a scolding response from the coach himself.
Such a shitty take. They won an event on LAN already. Give credit when it’s due.
