Week 4 of the inaugural season of the franchised Call of Duty League headed to Los Angeles, for the joint CDL Los Angeles Home Series event. Other than the opening weekend, each week of league games is played out at one of the franchised teams home events. This week was incredibly unique compared to the others. This is because there are two teams located in LA, meaning they held the event in collaboration and included the “Battle for LA” between the two.
CDL Los Angeles Results
Throughout the group stage, there were several blow out results, but the action did get a lot closer when it came to the finals. Some surprise results lead to Dallas booking in their first victory of the season before heading back to host their own Home Series, the CDL Dallas Home Series.

CDL Los Angeles Home Series Player of the Week
As always, there were a few strong candidates this week. With some blowouts and other nail biters games, a range of players had the opportunity to throw their name into the hat. The two players that I believe were ultimately battling for it during the grand final were Huke and Clayster.
Our CDL Los Angeles Home Series MVP Goes To Dallas Empire Huke
The Dallas Empire were buzzing with confidence after they acquired the explosive talents of Huke in the off-season. He has been consistent all year, but fans were still disappointed that his former showcase talent wasn’t fully being shown. This all changed this past weekend, with all of the Dallas players seeming to step things up a gear, despite their 3-0 loss to Atlanta.
Huke locked himself in as the MVP after his impressive performance in the grand final. Dallas faced off against Minnesota in the CDL Los Angeles Home Series grand final, which ended up going all the way to game 5 in the best of five series.
After being pushed to the last map, Dallas Empire came out swinging, in particular, Huke. The performance fans had been desperate to see came out, as he dropped 13 kills to secure the win.
Dallas Empire Clayster Hits Peak Once Again
Clayster is the oldest player in the Call of Duty League and is one of the most experienced and decorated players in Call of Duty history. There are always some fans who doubt his ability as he gets older, but there are always a few cases each season where he buries these accusations with incredible performances.
His performance at the Los Angeles Home Series was one of those. He was nudged out of the MVP position purely by Huke’s performance in the grand final.
Minnesota ROKKR Players In Their Prime?
A couple of the honourable mentions for MVP come from the Minnesota ROKKR roster. GodRx in particular, Assault and Asim had stellar performances, including the “ice in their veins” moment as they eliminated Atlanta. Keep a close eye on Minnesota moving forward.
