Tribe Gaming Emerged as the Champions of Call of Duty Mobile World Championship 2022

North America’s pro outfit Tribe Gaming pulled off a stunning victory against Luminosity in the CODM World Championship 2022 Grand Finals and ultimately lifted the trophy. It was a fascinating struggle between the two teams, who fought until the sixth round to determine who would become World Champions.

Despite losing their first match in the Playoffs against China’s Wolves and then fighting in the Lower Bracket, Tribe Gaming made an incredible comeback to reach the Grand Finals. Tribe Gaming Won Call of Duty Mobile World Championship 2022. Tribe Gaming also won the 2021 Call of Duty: Mobile World Championship western finals in December last year.

Tribe Gaming has been a significant contender for the championship since 2020, as they have been the most dominant team in the North American area. Boris “BoLu” Lunin, Jezz, Angel “Marshy” Gonzalez, Maiwand “Vague” Zai, Brian “Tectonic” Michel, and their substitute David “Slothy” Alvarado were among the team’s finest players.
Following an intense competition in the Group Stage, eight teams advanced to the Playoffs, which followed the Double Elimination Bracket style. Omega defeated Skade in the Quarterfinals and advanced to the Semifinals, where they met INCO Gaming, who had beaten Japan’s Scarz.

Meanwhile, Wolves overcame Tribe Gaming, and Luminosity defeated STMN to meet in the Semifinals. Meanwhile, both of the losing clubs advanced to the Lower Bracket.

After surviving their respective Semifinals matchups, INCO Gaming and Luminosity advanced to the Upper Bracket Finals. The Brazilian team lost the duel and was demoted to the Lower Bracket Finals. They faced Tribe Gaming, who had already eliminated STMN and Omega from the tournament.

The Grand Finals were conducted between two North American teams, Luminosity and Tribe Gaming, and spectators were treated to a nail-biting battle between the two squads.
