It's been quite a ride for eUnited in the recently completed Call of Duty World League Championship as the U.S. team fought their way to a hard-earned victory and a hefty $800,000 prize in the finals held in Los Angeles on Sunday.

We're talking about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 of course, and Sunday's finals have produced a winner, who managed to beat quite a few big names in their quest for the gold. And by gold, we mean $800,000 gold pieces that eUnited are taking home with them.

"Thank you to all of our amazing supporters who cheered for us every step of the way this weekend! It's an honor to StandUnited with you", the team wrote on their Twitter page .

This is the same team that conquered the CWL Pro League Finals in Miami last month, making eUnited a back-to-back championship winner - a no small feat considering the quality of the competition.

eUnited's roster includes James "Clayster" Eubanks, Alec "Arcitys" Sanderson, Preston "Prestinni" Sanderson, Tyler "aBeZy" Pharris and the tournament MVP Chris "Simp" Lehr.

The finals were a joy to behold for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 fans, as it was in no way decisive as the first game suggested. eUnited beat 100 Thieves with a resounding 250-126 on Seaside Hardpoint, which suggested easy pickings, but the Thieves fought back bravely.

Hacienda Search and Destroy resulted in 100 Thieves' victory of 6-3 and Frequency Control went in their favour as well, as they edged eUnited 3-1, going ahead in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's WLC finals. 

This seems to have kickstarted eUnited back into furious action, as they fought to a 250-219 victory on Arsenal Hardpoint, forcing 100 Thieves into a final showdown on Arsenal Search and Destroy.

The last Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 showdown was not an easy one, but eUnited won 6-4, which ensured that they are crowned winners, rightfully so, having previously beaten OpTic by 3-1 in the winners bracket finals.
