Meltdown (ESWC Qualifier) Predictions

This weekend we will see four French teams battle it out at MeltDown LAN in Paris. The prize? The eighth and final spot at the Electronic Sport World Cup, taking place in 2 weeks in Zenith, Paris. The all French lineups have this chance after doing well at smaller events across France in the last couple of months.

The winner will get to face the likes of US teams Denial, OpTic and Revenge, UK line ups Epsilon, Vitality Storm and Barrage, and of course fellow Frenchmen Millenium. Our French section of Dexerto have compiled a prediction thread for this 4 team qualifier, check out the translated version below. Let us know who your prediction is by Tweeting @Dexerto.

#1 – HyperGames

fr Maxxie fr TonyJaa fr Riskin fr Veziok

 

hyper

After being together since the start of the season and hosting veterans including poster boy Maxxie, this team have quite a number of events under their belts including a recent 4th place finish at the Gfinity Open. They’re one of the few French teams to copy the US and UK play style, attempting to shrug off the image that their nation is filled with gung-ho pistol wielding mavericks. Don’t let that trick you into thinking bad habits don’t die hard, going up against unpredictable teams such as Infamous could find chinks in this new armour. They are still the favourites however and will be expected to be in Zenith in 2 weeks time for ESWC.

 

#2 FaZe France

fr Zylewr fr Vortex fr Zeroo fr Malls

faze

Despite the new name, this team are actually the same lineup that came third in last November’s ESWC event on Ghosts, finishing behind the British of TCM Gaming and the winners, the Americans of Evil Geniuses. The team will be looking to phase (pun intended) the favourites HyperGames with a combination of chemistry and the veteran abilities of Zylwer, a French legend and player who can guide this team to victory. We still expect HyperGames to take the title but as with any event, anything can happen.

 

#3 – Infamous

fr Wizr fr Body fr Zayrox fr Zeek

Infamous-1024x683

They received qualification to this tournament in their first event when they took third at the Gamers Assembly. The team comprised of elite level French players are unlikely to trouble the likes of FaZe or HyperGames in this tournament, purely down to lack of playing time together, but after they surprised many people at GA, if they’ve practiced enough we could see an upset on the cards. Will they join Millenium at ESWC on the world stage? It’s unlikely this time around.

#4 – Pulse Gaming

fr Kkobra fr PasTeek fr Zyde fr KammyZ

pulse

 The least well known team in this small tournament, Pulse will be the biggest underdogs in this tournament. Not too much is known about this line up that is attempting to take down some of France’s biggest names. Although we’ve seen underdogs make an impact in the past, we can’t see them winning the place at ESWC when they have the likes of the above to compete with. Anything can happen of course but we imagine this team will be soaking up the experience rather than expecting to be in Zenith in May.

That’s all for our predictions of the Meltdown Tournament this weekend. We’ll bring you a tournament recap when the event is over however if you’re interested in knowing in play scores, follow our French Twitter at @DexertoFR.

[Halo] The Pit – Episode 1

This is the first episode of The Pit hosted by Dave Throop featuring TheSimms, Heinz, and Septic. Topics include roster changes since PAX East, New maps and gametypes as well predictions for Iron Gaming Atlanta this weekend.

Infused Pickup New Call of Duty Team

A mini #RosterMania has kicked off on UK shores after it was finally announced today that Infused players MarkyB and Reedy would be transferred to Vitality Storm for an undisclosed fee. It was a move that has been coming for a number of weeks since their disappointing performance at the Gfinity Open.

The move left a large hole in an organisation, one known for its valiant support of the Call of Duty franchise, and as such plans were put in place to bring in a new team.  That line up consists of Melon, Qwiker, Rated and Lewis. All players with experience in the European Call of Duty scene and one that the Infused organisation feel can make a positive impact.

The Infused management had this to say about the new team;

“With all the changes and the transfer of players to Vitality, we wanted to make a quick but positive return to Call of Duty, with our long-term goals still the same.  We are pleased to announce the return of QwiKeR and MeLoN, who will continue to play with Rated and Lewis.  It was a simple decision who we wanted to represent Infused once we knew the transfer was taking place and we feel this team are hungry to develop, progress and achieve under the Infused Banner, already showing great results at the GFINITY Open and Online Cups”.

MarkyB and Reedy Join Vitality Storm – Take Infused ESWC Spot

The rumours have finally been confirmed as today it was announced by the Vitality organisation that their team Storm, headed up by Tommey, have taken Infused players MarkyB and Reedy, as well as the Infused spot at ESWC.

After a poor finish by the Infused team at the Gfinity Open, it led to Dominate leaving to join Barrage eSports, whilst Jake listed himself as a free agent. It left MarkyB and Reedy in a difficult situation, find two replacements for ESWC or join elsewhere and take the spot with them. After being presented with the opportunity to join former Epsilon player Tommey in the Vitality Storm team, a deal was pushed through for an undisclosed amount.

The Infused management sent us an exclusive quote;

“Mark and Reedy approached us with the desire to move on to Vitality due to being offered an opportunity, due to them both being contracted. Vitality contacted us in a professional manner, in which we came to an agreement to transfer the players, in which they inherit the ESWC slot as it doesn’t belong to the organisation but to the players. We wish them all success.”

The final piece of the puzzle for Vitality Storm will be to confirm the 4th player. The team have been playing extensively with French player Broken however have yet to make a decision if he will join the team full time. We’ll keep you updated on when that is announced.

ESWC French Playoffs – Meltdown Event Information

The Electronic Sports World Cup, or ESWC for short, has changed its format over the last couple of years when it comes to Call of Duty. The last event back in November 2014 saw teams 16 from all around the world attend, including from places that aren’t associated with high quality competitive CoD, such as Algeria, Japan and Brazil. After two years of that format they have decided for 2015 there would be a change, instead we will now see only 8 teams in attendance, part selected and part qualifier in order to improve the standard of teams.

This weekend we’ll see the final French qualifier take place at the Meltdown event in Paris, the 4 teams having qualified from various other French events that have taken place over the last couple of months. They will play in a double elimination format, best of 5 to decide who gets the spot at ESWC in a couple of weeks time.

We’ll bring you any updates, links and pictures from the event over the course of the weekend and a run down of all the ESWC qualified teams early next week. Check out the teams and bracket below.

SYNRGY Gaming Announce Latest CoD Lineup

The Call of Duty scene in recent times has become very like what Halo once was in it’s prime with a huge following, packed out events and household names big enough to get stopped in the street, yet they always failed to get on board with the big brands, the Fnatic’s, Dignitas, coL and EG’s of this world. Of course all at one point have supported the game yet show little interest considering how large the game is getting.

SYN2

It makes a welcome change then that today we see an organisation pickup a Call of Duty team again after a hiatus away from the game. Although they’re not exactly a household name, SYNRGY Gaming have CSGO, DOTA and LoL teams and once upon a time also had a Call of Duty team, predominately made up of players who then moved onto Pro League 2 team Team JusTus.

Their new line up consists of former Denial and Rise Nation player ‘Legal’, former eLevate and ISO player ‘Jump’, former Rise and Prophecy member ‘Fears’ and relatively unknown Canadian ‘Ivy’. SYNRGY released this statement on Twitter;

Enable Replaces Karma at ESWC For OpTic Gaming

In an interesting move by OpTiC Gaming, they announced last night that their new star player Karma, who of course replaced Nadeshot in the lineup only a matter of weeks ago, would not be attending the Electronic Sports World Cup in Zenith, Paris in a couple of weeks time in May.

No reason has been given for his absence and he is expected to be in the lineup for the Gfinity Masters in London and UMG Cali in the following weeks after the event. Speculation suggests that due to being a young father, taking 3 weeks away from child and wife was just not possible.

OpTic’s subsitute ESWC – Enable

Replacing Karma will be the very talented Enable. The former Halo pro gamer joins fellow Halo expats Crimsix and Formal to make what could be a very exciting team to watch, at least when it comes to slaying and communication. Due to his home team FaZe playing at the Gfinity Masters the following week, we don’t expect to see this being a long standing change. Exciting regardless but also disappointing to not see the new OpTic line up for another week until Gfinity.
