A bizarre season of Call of Duty League action finally saw a champion being crowned this weekend.
The Dallas Empire steamrolled their way to a title and $1.5 million grand prize with a 5-1 championship match win over the Atlanta FaZe.
Atlanta was by far the best CDL team in the regular season, going 26-7 and finishing with a league-high 280 points. Dallas finished second with 260 points.
But FaZe were no match for the Empire in postseason competition, losing twice to their rival this weekend.
Here's everything to know about the CDL's championship weekend, which concludes the 2020 season:
