World class showdown at the Call of Duty Championship


In just nine days the top 32 Xbox 360 Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 teams from around the world will compete in the inaugural Call of Duty Championship in Hollywood for a share of the $1 million prize purse.

Teams competing qualified through tournaments including Major League Gaming’s Winter Championship in Dallas, TX, Electronic Sports League’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II European Championship in Cologne, Germany, and the Australian Cyber League’s tournament in Sydney. Team XtaZ from South Africa will face off against teams from countries such as Germany, France, Sweden, UK and the USA and is doing everything they can to be prepared for the event.

“We are going on what we call “a heavy grind”. We will be trying to fit in as much practice as possible before we leave. On the weekend just before our departure, Frostbite and I will be flying down to Cape Town so we can meet up with the Eos and Hazardz to do some LAN practice, as well as possibly using the Mcave to play against Europeans on a decent connection.” said Gregory “Ph0bia” Dutche in an interview.

I like bacon and games, and occasionally I say something coherent about it. I'm not old or cynical, and I'm not the Dork Knight. I AM SHE-RA! Wait, what?

    I hope this is the ugly part of competitive gaming and it’s not like this everywhere.

    • Matthew Holliday

      its just like that in the UK.
      English gamers are the worst people to play with.
      theyr like that in every game, not just CoD.

      the funny thing about that vid though, is its all game hype, amp the team up, distract the other team etc.
      outside of the competition, theyr all friends.

      To much testosterone for my liking, and Bobby Kotick knows it. Great strategy team over at Activision. They know that every male has to deal with raging hormones so Harmonix went ROCK n Roll with Guitar Hero but it was short lived.

      So SHOOTING SHIT was the next best thing and it rakes in 1billion in 15days.

    They should be playing A TRUE SINGLE PLAYER ART GAME not this poppy cock :p


  • Kingkappie
