Barrage eSports Drop UK Team

It’s been announced by the Barrage eSports organisation that their UK will disband after a number of successful tournaments. The team that did what seemed the impossible at ESWC and beat the current best team in the world, OpTic Gaming, in what many thought would be the start of something special for the team.

Good things unfortunately come to an end and a Twitlonger was released by the organisation (website announcements seem to a thing of the past) detailing that due to struggles finding a replacement fourth for under age player “Bance”, the team going its separate ways. They have however announced that they will be looking for a replacement team to represent them in the Gfinity European Pro League.

You can view the full statement from Barrage on their Twitlonger HERE.

Gfinity Pro League S1 Qualifiers Announced

The UK and Europe’s current beacon of light in the Call of Duty scene is tournament organiser Gfinity. With the aim to put European CoD eSports firmly back in the limelight with a seemingly “whatever it takes” attitude, they have announced how you can qualify for the Season 1 of their European Pro League.

gfinity22

It was initially announced that the league would be taking place and that there would be numerous ways to qualify, some invited because they’re the top teams in Europe and others through qualifiers. The first of the online qualifiers will take place on Monday the 1st of June (registration now open 28/05/2015) in a 128 team bracket tournament whilst the second will take place on Wednesday 3rd of June (registration opens 01/05/15).

More information and registration can be found at the Gfinity website HERE.

Enigma 6 Invited To MLG Relegation Tournament

Last night on the MLG Pro League show “Esports Report” it was announced that the new sensations in the CoD Esports scene, Enigma 6, have been invited to the MLG Relegation Tournament for Season 3. When Season 2 finished, Team JusTus were one of the teams that were relegated in the bottom 4 and in the process the organisation lost their entire team, leaving them with the option of either getting a new team to replace them, or forfeit the spot.

After a blistering third place finish at UMG Cali and a subsequent tournament win at MES Detroit the weekend after, Enigma 6 were initially expected to compete in the single elimination, 64 team qualifier tournament for the relegation tournament taking place this evening (28/05/2015). Speculation is now rife as to how MLG have awarded the place to the young team with many on social media assuming that E6’s wealthy benefactors have contributed, however it is widely believed from MLG sources that they have been chosen based on recent results. Once we have confirmation we will update.

UMG Dallas 2015 Announced

After a successful UMG California just a matter of weeks ago, the UMG Events team announced on Twitter a couple of days ago that they will be hosting their next event in Dallas July 10th-12th with a huge $40,000 prize pool. Full details of the event have yet to be released but you can expect the numbers to match the Cali event with at least 120 teams in the open bracket and 16 invited Pro teams.

UMG Dallas

It will be the third time in UMG’s history that they will host an event in Dallas and it’ll be the second time in as many months that Texas holds a major event, with MLG’s Pro League Playoffs being held in Austin at the start of June. With the majority of events currently invite only, an Open event for an ever expanding North American scene is welcome news to those like E6 who wish to break into the Pro ranks. We’ll bring you more information once it has been released by the UMG organisation.

This Weekend In CoD: Final Placements – MES, FCO & Swedish Championships

This weekend was a triple threat with three events across the world, all in different countries (France, Sweden, USA).

Check out the final placements and further tournament recap for each event below.

 

MES Detroit 2015

Organising an event so that it doesn’t clash with others is always difficult and unfortunately for MES Detroit, having their event 1 week after UMG Cali meant they took a real hit with the amount of Pro Teams that were in attendance (there wasn’t any). The most notable attendee’s were the new kids on the block, Enigma6, who ended up taking first place ahead of pickup team Goon Squad that featured pro players Parasite, Proofy, Saints and Goonjar. Check out the final placements below;

MES Detroit 2015 Final Placements
