Boston Breach is one of the newest teams in the Call Of Duty League alongside OpTic Texas. They had a decent season that ended with qualification to the Call of Duty Championship tournament after finishing on a 16-16 record, overcoming teams like Toronto Ultra and New York Subliners in the standings. Unfortunately for them, their first opponents are the LA Thieves. The LA Thieves come off a recent 5-3 win over the New York Subliners at the Call of Duty League 2022 – Major 4.
LA Thieves vs Boston Breach series is one of the earliest matches of the tournament and it’s also one of the most highly-anticipated encounters in the tournament. It’ll be a test for the LA Thieves, coming into the event just weeks after winning the first major Call of Duty trophy that the organization has ever seen. For the side of Boston Breach, it’s a chance to make a statement – to deliver a message to the League that Boston is ready to become a real power player in the scene.
It’s going to be a classic East Coast vs. West Coast battle, with these two titans meeting for the first time since the Major IV qualifying stage in June 2022, where LA completely rolled over Boston. Since then, LA Thieves has gone on to beat the best teams in the Call of Duty League line-up, winning a Major, and establishing itself as a real contender for the grand prize.
On the other hand, Boston Breach has had a much less impressive year, especially lately, but it hasn’t been for a lack of trying. As a newly formed team, Boston has remained relatively consistent throughout the season, finishing in 6th place above the likes of Toronto Ultra, the New York Subliners, and the Florida Mutineers. At this year’s Major tournaments, Breach didn’t fare too badly, securing a fifth-place finish at Major I, and a third-place finish at Major II.
Aside from a late change that saw Vivid join the roster in favor of Capsidal, the Boston Breach team has remained consistent all season. For the LA Thieves, the combination of Kenny, Drazah, Octane, and Envoy has been a solid one all through the year. This is a team that has gelled remarkably well, and as the year has pushed on, the squad’s performance has only improved. It could prove too much for Boston Breach to overcome, but as we all know, there’s always room for an upset in the Call of Duty League.
For instance, take the New York Subliners and the team’s last-ditch effort to make it to Champs. It was a successful push, and now the team that was at the bottom of the table all season has the ultimate opportunity to produce a remarkable upset and steal the trophy away from favorites, Atlanta FaZe.
On August 4th, the LA Thieves vs Boston Breach series will kick off and it’s turning out to be one of the most exciting series of the tournament, so make sure to not miss it!
