As you can imagine, I wasn’t quite as excited to do the eSports Wrap-up today because u no love them and I’ve gotten strike two for it being the least popular and if I get strike three the team is going to make me do unspeakably horrifying things!

It is with a very heavy heart that we say goodbye to a loved and well known gamer that has been a part of the Call of Duty 4 community for a long time. Sean ‘Sniper’ Lancaster had passed away on Wednesday after his struggle with leukaemia.
