Atlanta was perfect in the tournament until the grand final when Toronto took three maps off the team. FaZe swept both the New York Subliners and Dallas Empire with ease on the way to the final. Toronto had to battle through the lower bracket after falling in its opening match to Dallas. Toronto went on to beat OpTic Chicago, Minnesota ROKKR and Dallas in a rematch to get to the final.

Atlanta was dominant throughout the regular season winning the Stage 1, 3 and 4 Majors. FaZe appeared in every Major final apart from Stage 5 after losing to Seattle Surge. This was the second COD Champs final to feature a European roster after Splyce featured in the Black Ops III final.
