Congrats to the newest Call of Duty World Champions: Team EnVyUs!

After an intense weekend of pro-gaming, Call of Duty XP has finally drawn to a close with Team EnVyUs winning their first Championship and Team Captain JKap winning his second ring in the process. This was after a final series against Splyce, who made history as the first European team to make it to the final game in the history of CoD Championships.

Overall, it was always going to be a brilliant finish.
