Despite being an absolute force of nature in the competitive Call of Duty scene for multiple years since the Call of Duty League started, the Atlanta Faze will not be adding another Championship trophy to its collection, as during the grand finals for the Championship Weekend yesterday, the Los Angeles Thieves defeated the Faze and won the tournament instead.

This came after the Championship Weekend playoffs that were taking place from August 4-6 and over that time, while the defending champion Faze did look like a serious contender once again, the team couldn't crack the Thieves, as the Los Angeles-based team managed to defeated the Faze not just in the grand finals, but also in the winners finals to secure its spot in the final match. This meant that the Faze had to then go through the Seattle Surge to get a shot at the Thieves again, something that didn't work out the second time either.

With this win in the books, Zack "Drazah" Jordan, Kenneth "Kenny" Williams, Sam "Octane" Larew and Dylan "Envoy" Hannon will all be getting their very own Championship rings in the near future, and likewise this concludes the 2022 Call of Duty League season, meaning we'll likely have to wait until early 2023 before play starts back up - and this time on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II instead of Call of Duty: Vanguard.
