The Los Angeles Thieves secured a much-needed victory in the Call of Duty League by defeating the London Royal Ravens during the opening match of the CDLs Major Three qualifiers.
The Thieves competed in a role swap between Drazah and Kenny before the Pro-Am Classic, which saw them fall in second place behind the New York Subliners. LAT have apparently improved dramatically in the handful of matches since the swap. It''s possible that the Royal Ravens will have a change period following recently benching Gismo in favor of Harry.

The Thieves dwindled in a 250-214 victory against Gavutu Hardpoint. Octane proved to be the difference-maker for LAT, finishing with a 1.22 K/D performance and 28 kills. The Thieves now face Berlin in a five-game losing streak. Envoy comes through for his team by going 14-3 throughout the map.
Berlin would be the third and final map of the series for Control, the same map and mode that the Thieves had faced London on one week earlier. Despite their success in the Clean sweep, LAT completed the clean sweep with a 3-1 victory.
Los Angeles will finish the first week on Sunday, May 15, against the Minnesota RKKR, while London faces the last-place Paris Legion tomorrow.
