North American Call of Duty pro team Echo Fox have officially qualified for the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.
The third team to qualify from Division A, Echo Fox will be joining Red Reserve and Team Kaliber in the postseason.
Since the start of Week 5 of the Pro League, Echo Fox have been unbeatable, having won five straight matches to put them on the brink of a postseason berth.
Echo Fox came into Day Two knowing that a victory over FaZe Clan would give them just that.
However, a shock upset victory by the previously winless Epsilon eSports against Team EnVy eliminated EnVy from contention, and mathematically qualified Echo Fox before they even faced FaZe.

With their Day Two match against FaZe still left to play, and a meeting with the very same Epsilon in Day Three, Echo Fox still have plenty of opportunities left to improve their standings within the top half of Division A.
Although Red Reserve have already clinched the top seed, Echo Fox still can finish second should they have a better map win percentage than Team Kaliber.

The CWL Pro League features a total of 16 teams divided into Divisions A and B, with the 8 teams of each group playing each other twice.
While every team receives a base cash prize for participating, the top four teams of each Division qualify for the Playoffs, where a whopping $500,000 prize pool will be up for grabs.
