History

Black Ops 3

Giants Gaming announced their new Call of Duty roster in late November to prepare for the 2016 EU COD World League Stage 1. Their starting roster was JaayZ, peLukaa, EupHo and TojoR. The team competed in the 2016 CWL EU Pro Division Qualifying Invitational Tournament and were seeded into Group A with teams such as Team Infused, Team Vitality, and Epsilon eSports. They would go on to lose their first series against Epsilon eSports 0-3 and would go down to the losers bracket where they were eliminated from the tournament by Team Vitality 0-3.

The team made a roster change after the tournament by releasing JaayZ and peLukaa with MethodZ and Lgend to the official roster for the 2016 CWL EU Pro Division Online Qualifying Tournament. The team started out with 3-0's all the way to the Round of 32 where they faced Orbit in a 3-2 victory. After the victory, their next opponent, Barrage eSports, would also lead the team to a 3-2 series, which Giants came on top to move on to the qualifying round and face Spanish team Spirit Gaming and win 3-0 to secure a spot in the 2016 EU COD World League Stage 1.

After finishing in 8th Place in 2016 EU CWL Stage 1 Regular Season with a 7-11 (25-42) record, Giants Gaming were forced into the 2016 EU CWL Stage 1 Relegation where they would go up against a challenging team, FAB Games eSports. Giants were able to take the series 4-1 and qualify for 2016 EU CWL Stage 2 Regular Season.
