eUnited is a North American team.

History

Black Ops 3

eUnited put together their first CoD roster to compete at the final MLG event before the 2016 Call of Duty World League Championship, MLG Orlando Open 2016. The players recruited were Pacman, Whea7s, Ivy and Burns. The team faired well, considering their short time together, finishing 17-20th. Going into the Championship tournament, the team picked up Accuracy in place of the soon retiring Burns, but didn't play much better, finishing again in 17-20th.

Infinite Warfare

Attending the first event of the Infinite Warfare Season, PlayStation Experience Invitational, eUnited replaced Whea7s and Ivy with Legal and SiLLY. The team placed respectably in 7-8th, but the event was not attended by many of the top teams. At the next event, 2017 CWL Las Vegas Open, the team did not fair as well, finishing a disappointing 21-24th. With the players recognizing that it was unlikely the team would win together, Pacman, Legal and Accuracy all left the team, to be replaced by Gunless, Prestinni and Arcitys from GosuCrew. With Burns now as manager of the new roster, they began strongly in the online MLG GameBattles 2K tournaments, winning 2 and placing 2nd in another before attending the next event of the year, the 2017 CWL Atlanta Open.

The First Championship

After their strong performance online, the team were regarded as a dark horse going into Atlanta, however some believed their performances would not be able to translate onto the LAN event stages. The team quickly quietened the naysayers however, winning their pool in dominating fashion with a 4-0 record and a 12-2 map count, beating out even the likes of a rejuvenated Team EnVyUs. eUnited kept the upsets coming in their run in the winners bracket, first taking out Splyce and favorites FaZe in tight 3-2 victories, before doing the double over EnVyUs with a 3-0 in the winners bracket finals. The team would face an in form OpTic Gaming in the Grand Final's, who had just made an incredible losers bracket run after being beaten by EnVy in the first winners bracket round. Despite their performance throughout, eUnited were still not expected to win the Grand Finals, even though OpTic would have to beat them in two best of 5's. OpTic became the first team to take a series from eUnited however, winning the first best of 5 comfortably 3-0. eUnited were not fazed however, and came back strong in the second series. After an intense first hardpoint, which eUnited closed out 250-204, OpTic managed an incredible comeback from being 5-2 down in Retaliation Search and Destroy to tie the series up 1-1. eUnited then lost the uplink fairly easily, falling 7-2 to OG. Now down 2-1, eUnited had to battle back in the penultimate map 4 Hardpoint, and did just that, only just managing to take a narrow 250-230 victory. Finally, losers bracket road was proven too long for OpTic, who seemed to run out of steam, and eUnited took the map and the Championship. Gunless was awarded the MVP trophy for his incredible slaying power throughout the event, and Burns gave an emotional few lines to the crowd, stating how proud he was that this team was able to win a championship with him as manager, something he hadn't been able to do as a player.

Following their incredible victory, eUnited jetted off to Paris to compete at the 2017 CWL Paris Open. They were unable to replicate their performance however, and fell short of their own expectations, placing 13-16th. They return to the states to continue practicing for the next event, CWl Dallas, and take part in the online 2K tournaments. With the top seed now lost to OpTic Gaming, after their impressive Paris win, eUnited went to Dallas as the 2nd. This earned them an arguably easier pool than they had at Atlanta, but still had to face off some top teams. They came out on top however, dropping only one series (to the open bracket team Team Kaliber) and moved into winners bracket. The beat out an in form E6 in the first round to set up a winners semi match against FaZe Clan. After a tight series, FaZe won out 3-2, and placed eUnited into losers bracket. eUnited made a determined run however, taking out EnVyUs and Splyce in dominant 3-0 wins, to set up the rematch against FaZe in the losers final. eUnited faired better, only losing the uplink in overtime, and winnin the series 3-1 overall, with strong performances in Hardpoint and 6-5 victory in Retaliation Search and Destroy.

A Grand Final To Remember

After beating out FaZe in the losers final 3-1, eUnited came into the Grand Final after making a similar losers bracket run as OpTic had done back in CWL Atlanta, and would now need to beat OpTic in two best of 5 series to win the event. In the opening map of the Grand Final, OpTic put eUnited to the sword, '100-point clubbing' them, winning by 250-67. Many believed after such a convincing win, the team would be too demoralized to bring the series back in map 2. Despite this, eUnited went up 5-1 in the Search and Destroy, and had Gunless with full streaks after only 3 rounds. Somehow though, OpTic battled back, making another incredible S&D comeback, winning 6-5. After suffering such a comeback defeat, and with the crowd now heavily favoring OpTic, eUnited looked doomed in the first best of 5 series. But then they made one of the most incredible reverse sweep comeback's to take the series 3-2. They narrowly won the uplink by 8-7, with a toss in the final seconds. They then obliterated OpTic in the second Hardpoint, winning by over 80 points. Finally, the Search and Destroy was much closer, going all the way to round 11. But after a monster performance from Gunless, who finished the map with 18 kills and only 6 deaths, eUnited won the last round to take the series and complete the unbelievable reverse sweep. Going into the 2nd best of 5, the eUnited fans started to believe that the impossible was now do-able. However, they did not start well once again. OpTic won the scorch Hardpoint 250-187, and also took the Search and Destroy, going up 2-0 in the series once again. Then came Throwback Uplink - one of the most incredible uplinks so far in Infinite Warfare. After a tight first round, eUnited opened up a 5 point lead, with the score 6-1 in their favor with only 30 seconds remaining. OpTic rallied all 5 points in the time however, with a buzzer beater toss from Karma, to take the map to overtime. eUnited managed to close it out though, scoring in 46 seconds, and then scoring again in the second side to close out the map. Back on hardpoint, eUnited played well as a team, including some very smart plays from Prestinni to secure spawns for his team, and won the map 250-118. Now with eUnited on the verge of 2 reverse sweeps and winning the tournament, it was time for the veteran players on OpTic to step up in the game 5, Scorch Search and Destroy. And stepped up did Karma, opening up 7-1, gaining full streaks and just steamrolling through the eUnited players. Karma clutched 2 1v2's, and got an ace in round 4, leading his team to a dominating 6-0 win on the final map, winning OG the tournament. The eUnited players were visibly dejected as OpTic lifted the trophy. OpTic players congratulated the team on their performance, and said that it wiped away any lingering thoughts that they were 'onliners'. FormaL even said that eUnited's Gunless was his toughest opposition at that moment. Despite the heartbreaking defeat, this eUnited roster had cemented their place in CoD eSport history, and their outlook remained bright for the remainder of the IW season after such strong performances all round.
