COD Mobile Fall Invitational 2022 Knockout Stage Overview
The first match of the quarterfinals in the knockout stages was won by Chinese team Qing Jiu Club. They beat Group B leaders Omega Esports 4-2. The second match was between All Gamers and Wolves (both Chinese teams) and the latter emerged victorious 4-2.
Dominant from the start, BlackList Ultimate had no trouble defeating Douyu Gaming, who also hails from China. The last game was played between the two Indonesian teams ALMGHTY and ABC International. The former had the upper hand 4:1.
The Qing Jiu Club (Q9) recouped their loss in the China Masters Season 4 finals by defeating Wolves in a one-sided battle. Wolves didn’t seem to be at their best during the event and were eliminated with a 0-4 score.
The second semi-final match was played between the COD Mobile WC 2021 East winner and the runner-up. This was also a fairly one-sided match as ALMGHTY defeated Blacklist 4-1.
The grand final between ALMGHTY and Qing Jiu Club was a very close match as both teams gave it their all. Q9 won Match 1 and 2 in Firing Range and Takeoff, but ALMGHTY made a fantastic comeback after winning Match 3 and 4 in Raid and Hacienda.
Q9 won the fifth match on Summit and ALMGHTY won the sixth match, increasing the score to 3-3. The last match (played in Slums) was bitter but in the end ALMGHTY was crowned champion with a 7-5 score.
