Gfinity Announce S2 Finals Talent

I’m not sure how I feel about labelling the commentators and analysts talent, but Gfinity have so we’re going with it. This weekend is the Season 2 finals of the Gfinity EU Pro League for Season 2 and today the London based organisation have announced who will be hosting, casting and doing analysis. We take a quick look below at who’s who as there may be some unfamiliar faces.

casters Gfin

Richard Lewis will be hosting the event, the first time for the well known PC journalist and regular host of Gfinity and Dreamhack CSGO events. He was originally down to do the Season 1 opener but was unable due to illness. Joining him on the desk for analysis is Chris Trout, normally seen behind the scenes at Gfinity. After impressing audiences with his CoD knowledge during the Wednesday online games, he’s making the move to the big time as he does his first set of CoD event presenting.

The casting desk will be a more familiar set of talent as we see regulars of Rel and Bricey back at the Gfinity Arena. Someone finally rescued Tunny from under his girlfriend’s thumb as he’s back in the action alongside one of the newer emerging casting talents in IHNK. Finally the pretend American politician Courage is making the trip over from the US as the only North American in attendance this weekend.

Dexerto will be in attendance this weekend at the Gfinity Arena bringing you our regular coverage. See the fixture list below so you don’t miss any of the games to decide season 2 of the league.

Weekly CoD eSports News – 26th August

A roundup of the latest ongoings in the Call of Duty scene including Roster Changes, 2K and 5K results, MES Detroit, Playstation/Xbox BETA and more!

ACL and ESL Partnership Announced

ESL, the Electronic Sports League, are one of the largest eSport companies in the world and one that has been growing year after year with the success in both console and PC markets, specifically in Europe but with a presence worldwide. Today they have announced that they will be entering into a partnership with Australian company the Australian Cyber League, also known as ACL

ACL-ESL

 

Running various events down in Australia across all eSports platforms, ACL have become known as the number 1 event organiser for the region and this partnership looks set to make them stronger. The news article doesn’t go into too much detail about what will be involved and whether it’ll involve a complete rebranding of ACL or whether they will just work together on projects. We attempted to reach out to CEO of ACL, Nick Vanzetti, for comment, but were directed towards the official press announcement.

Check out the ACL and ESL partnership statements below.

Full press release from Turtle Entertainment (owners of ESL) – LINK

Sebastian Weishaar, Senior Vice President International Business at ESL

“We’re a truly global company that saw a successful expansion into North America last year, having previously established ourselves in Europe and Asia. Today, we’re happy to announce that we will now also be focusing on the Oceanic region.

We consistently see Oceanic teams compete in major competitions, such as Intel Extreme Masters and ESL One, against teams from more established regions. With our new partnership, we’re committed to giving the Oceanic region a fairer shot at major international competition by giving them more opportunities to compete at a higher level within their own countries.”

Nick Vanzetti, Managing Director at ACL

“We have long been looking up to ESL as the global leader in the space, producing some of world’s best esports events. It makes great sense to partner with ESL. This partnership will allow us to level up the current esports offering and truly put our region on the map. There are some exciting projects already in development which we look forward to sharing with the passionate fans of our growing scene.”

North America Latest – RosterMania 26th August

With UMG Washington DC coming up fast, we are seeing a lot of team changes from the North American teams outside of the Pro League as they attempt to get the best possible line up for the 144 team event held out of the capital of the US of A.


Update 26th August

3Sup Small3Sup Drop Pacman and Goonjar

A new logo and a couple of seasoned Pro’s still couldn’t bring any luck to organisation 3Sup at the weekend as they were knocked out of MES Detroit in 17th to 24th position, despite having the number 7 seed. The outcome has been Pacman and Goonjar leaving the team, although it’s currently unclear whether that is because they were pushed or left. The hunt for a stable 3Sup roster continues.

Tcm Moose Leaves TCM Gaming

After playing with TCM for around 2 years, and being part of the big plan to move to the US, it has been announced that Moose has left TCM Gaming. He posted a Twitlonger detailing that due to having a bit of a stressful time in the team, that he would be leaving and flying back to the UK to compete in Europe again. Reports that the American duo of Aches and Teep not getting on well with Moose could have well been a factor in his decision to finally leave.

After British player Swanny left the Epsilon NA team yesterday (read update below), it didn’t take long for the squad to find a new fourth. That player is former World Champion and one of the longest standing veterans in the Call of Duty scene, Parasite. After being dropped from the TK line up and then placing poorly with Enigma6 at UMG Dallas, Parasite has vowed that he’s out to make a difference with a league team. Time will tell if this happens.

After competing with the Epsilon North America squad for a number of months, British player ‘Swanny’ has made the decision to remain in the UK after working as an analyst during the Gfinity Summer Championship. Although there has not been a lot of details released by the player, he’s called it a necessary short term sacrifice in order to keep competing, which roughly translates as US Visa issues. We’ll keep you updated on who Epsilon bring in to fill Swanny’s space for the Pro League.

Stepping up will be Denial players ‘Slasher’ and ‘Replays’ whose team face similar issues attending European events due to ‘Huke’ and ‘Temp’ not making the age cut. Tweet announcement HERE.

EGL Open Announced

The European Gaming League, or EGL, as they’re more commonly known, have had some tough luck recently when their shared adventure with CITYLAN was cancelled. Although it was no fault of their own, as the event organisers cancelled the entire Peterborough event just two weeks before it was scheduled to take place, EGL have not wasted any time in getting back on the horse and announcing a new event, the EGL Open.

EGL Open

Of course when times are tough, where better to schedule your next event for guaranteed teams than the Norbreck Castle in Blackpool? The spiritual home of British Call of Duty may not have the best Tripadvisor reviews but it is consistent in bringing in large numbers of young avid gamers who are willing to compete. This was proven at AM2Pro only a few months ago when over 70 teams turned out, a European record for AW.

norbreck

The tournament will take place on the 23rd and 24th of October at the Norbreck castle in Blackpool with tournaments for both PS4 and Xbox One. This is likely to be the last European event before the release of Black Ops 3 only weeks later. Will you be in attendance? Let us know by Tweeting us @Dexerto.

European News – RosterMania *Updated 24th August*

It’s not just the American’s who change their rosters on a regular basis, that’s right, European’s are also pretty good at moving players around. This news post will become the home for all the changes for the European teams going forward, bar the TCM Gaming team who will feature in our North American Rostermania news post.


24th August Update

Epsilogo std.pngMilllogo std.pngMillenium Pickup Reedy. Epsilon Pickup Dominate

The Millenium roster took a bit of a hit last week when Rated was suspended by the Gfinity organisation after directing homophobic comments towards their Twitter, an expensive Tweet as it also led to a 400 Euro fine. Today it was announced on Twitter that Epsilon player Reedy would be traded to the Millenium team and as a result they would be picking up Dominate, a former Call of Duty Pro who competed at CoD Champs 2015 with Infused but retired shortly after. What this means for Reedy when Rated returns is currently up in the air.

Infusedjosh Infused Announce Latest Roster

After coming fourth at the Gfinity Summer Championship, against some impressive American opposition, you’d have thought that the Team Infused roster would be one of the safe teams going into the inevitable RosterMania. Of course logic went out the window when LXT and Urban were offered big money contracts to join Vitality Storm. This left new Infused captain MarkyB in a difficult situation, one that he has today rectified by bringing on board former Epsilon player Josh along with Bance and Nathan, a mix of young and experienced talent.

Liquidlogo std.pngLiquid Gaming Drop Donny

The Italian organisation today have announced on their Facebook that they have dropped Donny from the organisation and suspended him. The details are unclear but it indicates that due to poor behaviour in and out of game he has been punished. The replacement is currently unclear but with only a small pool of Italian players to choose from, it’s likely to be a familiar name to those who know anything about the Italian scene.

When Shane and Swanny returned from the US it was always going to be a big question about who they were going to team with. The answers have been revealed and Epsilon eSports EU is their new home. Releasing Madcat, Rated and Joe, they have stuck with Reedy and opted to play with relative unknown Zer0.

G2logo std.pngGamers2 Disband

After a poor performance in the Gfinity Pro League last season, it has been announced that Gamers2 will no longer be competing together with the players Lgend, Methodz, Tojor and Inven going their separate ways. A big shock and disappoint for the Spanish community after only a couple of months playing together in an organisation that were supporting the growth of Call of Duty.


7th August Update

V.Stormlogo std.pngVitality Storm Switch Two

After a reasonably successful tournament at the Gfinity Summer Championship, eventually being knocked out in the bracket by OpTic Gaming, Vitality Storm have decided to make a change. Out goes veteran Josh along with former Aware Gaming player Watson and in comes the impressive duo of LXT and Urban. Both have recently been performing well online and at events, helping Infused come 4th in the biggest shock of the entire Summer Champs. What will this mean for Josh and Watson? We’ll keep you updated.

HGlogo std.pngMelo Joins HyperGames

After some really poor performances by French team Millenium, it’s been announced that Melo will be joining the HyperGames team in replacement for Riskin. After finishing third in the Gfinity EU Pro League, HG are considered the best team at the moment in France and a natural choice for Melo. Riskin has not be dropped but will remain as a substitute.

After being dropped by Epsilon last week in replacement for Madcat, MarkyB has been on the lookout for a new roster. After the Gfinity EU Pro League roster lock was lifted we’ve seen Melon out and MarkyB replacing him. It will mean MarkyB will be playing for the team in red at the Gfinity Summer Championships next weekend.

Epsilogo std.pngEpsilon Change One

After winning numerous tournaments and finally get a grasp on the Gfinity EU Pro League, Epsilon have made the decision to drop captain MarkyB in replacement for former TCM member, Madcat. Thought of as being one of the best players in Europe, the decision to bring Madcat in has had the community in complete disagreement. Will it work?
