The Los Angeles Thieves forged a tie for first place in the Call of Duty League by beating the last-place London Royal Ravens 3-1 on Friday.

The Thieves (4-0) are now level with the Atlanta FaZe (4-0), who were idle Friday. The Royal Ravens slipped to 0-4.

In other action Friday on Day 5 of Super Week, the Paris Legion (2-2) posted a 3-2 win over the Toronto Ultra (1-3), and the defending champion Dallas Empire (3-1) pulled off a reverse sweep for a 3-2 victory over the New York Subliners (2-2).

The Call of Duty League has tabbed its current slate as Super Week, a restructured schedule of play in the wake of severe winter weather across much of the United States.

Stage I, Week 2 matches that had been scheduled for last Thursday through Sunday were moved to this week. Instead, the 20 matches from Weeks 2 and 3 are now part of Super Week, which began Monday and will run through next weekend.

The matches from Super Week will impact teams' seedings in the Major I Tournament, which is scheduled to start March 3.

On Friday, the Thieves jumped on top with a 250-137 victory on Moscow Hardpoint and a 6-4 triumph on Garrison Search and Destroy. The Royal Ravens claimed Garrison Control 3-1 before Los Angeles sealed the match with a 250-192 win on Garrison Hardpoint.

The Legion took Raid Hardpoint 250-225, but the Ultra replied by claiming Moscow Search and Destroy 6-3 and Raid Control 3-0. Paris bounced back to win Garrison Hardpoint 250-211 and Miami Search and Destroy 6-3.

The Subliners were in control of their match early, winning Checkmate Hardpoint 250-138 and Checkmate Search and Destroy 6-3. However, the Empire rallied to take Raid Control 3-2, Garrison Hardpoint 250-171 and Miami Search and Destroy 6-3.
