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). Although none of them would be considered “majors” they all were all important for the expansion and development of the Call of Duty eSports scene. 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;

FCO #3 France

This weekend in France we saw the gaming house SFCO organise their third Advanced Warfare event with an impressive turnout from the even more impressive French community. The notable attendee’s were the eventual winners HyperGames, the Belgian’s of eQ (4th) and the most popular team in France, Millenium (3rd).

Bricey Leaves Gfinity

Rather abruptly, Alan ‘Bricey’ Brice has announced his departure from Gfinity just a week following their inaugural Call of Duty Spring Masters. An official statement on Gfinity’s website cites that he has left to pursue new opportunities while continuing to operate as freelance talent, with Alan himself confirming it via Twitter:


Bricey was their chief talent manager and recruiter, assembling some of the most formidable international lineups of pundits to grace a single Call of Duty eSports tournament on UK soil. He served as a presenter, commentator and analyst – sometimes all in one weekend – while also liaising with the community and industry throughout Gfinity’s meteoric rise that has since seen their development of a Fulham based eSports arena. 

With Bricey already involved across the global Call of Duty board, freelancing at other events in conjunction with his role at Gfinity, it is difficult to predict where his extra time will be dedicated to, although on reaching out to Alan we can confirm that he’ll be revealing more details on his future in due course.

UMG Cali – 5 Things We Learned on Day Two

Enigma6 Catch Fire

In possibly the most successful run in UMG history, Enigma6 finished Day Two with a 10-0 record after a flawless Open Bracket run, 4-0 record in Pool Play and victory in the first round of the Championship Bracket. Their reward is a minimum placement of top 6 and a shot at eLevate for top 3.  

 

Karma enabled

If there were any questions over OpTic’s form with Karma instead of Enable, they were well and truly put to bed today. Near flaweless form in the Pool Play and 3-0 victory over EnVyUS in the eClassico was enough to see OpTic through to the final 6 of the tournament. OpTic at their best.

 

OpTic Nation sent packing

In contrasting form, Nation followed up a poor day one with more disappointment on day two. After showing promise at Gfinity, Nation slumped to an embarrassing 0-4 record in Pools. Some pride was restored with a win over Mutiny but that merely papered over the cracks. Rise proved to be the superior Nation, knocking ON out with a 3-1 victory.

 

eLevate Unfazed

FaZe barely seemed to need top gear in the Pools en route to a 4-0 record. eLevate, who had lost earlier to JusTus, put FaZe through their paces and overturned a 2-1 deficit before romping to a 6-0 S&D victory on map 5 to seal the series ahead of FaZe. FaZe have made life hard for themselves. eLevate play Enigma 6 for top 3.

 

Merk Top 6

It’s no big secret Merk wants back on EnVyUS and JusTus’ performances this weekend could be the key to the former OpTic man getting back in the fold. With EnVyUS facing a Loser Bracket slog, Merk and JusTus sit pretty after a nail biting finish in a 3-2 series over vVv. Next stop OpTic Gaming.
