Channel 4 Interview Tommey and Morgan

The eSports scene has been garnering more and more attention in recent months, with Call of Duty one of the games the mainstream media are fascinated by due to the popularity of the Call of Duty franchise. Channel 4 have picked up on this and have done a series of interviews with various members of the UK CoD esports scene, including Vitality Storm player Tom ‘Tommey’ Trewren and Europe’s highest ranked female player, Morgan ‘Morgz’ Ashurst. Check out the links below for more, including footage from the Gfinity Open a couple of months ago;

Avante Garde Take Trident Roster

Despite having the smallest team base of the three main regions of Call of Duty (NA,EU,ANZ), the Australian scene love nothing more than a controversy to make sure that everyone is still on their toes. In the battle to move Mindfreak from first place, the chasing teams will often do the unthinkable in order to get a line up they think will make a difference. The latest change? Fresh off a second place at ACL Sydney, three members of the Trident squad have left to join well known player Issei in Avant Garde.

avantt1

It is reported on the grapevine that the team originally wanted Issei to join Trident, however due to contracts in place the move wasn’t possible, leaving the only option for the entire team to jump ship. One player who has reported inside knowledge is the player ‘Nike’, posting a Twitlonger stating that the changes happened because they had been offered salaries, amongst other benefits. Will the team last until the next event or will we see yet more changes in the Australian scene? On current form, it’s likely to be the latter. We’ll keep you up to date on the changes with the other plays.

GoW Ultimate Edition – Changes from BETA Feedback

Today The Coalition announced the tweaks and modifications they have introduced as a result of the feedback and data collected from the open beta. The results are as follows…

  • Multiple fixes and tuning for the Gnasher Shotgun
  • Multiple fixes for Frag Grenades, Boomshot, and Torque Bow
  • Tuning for footstep audio and other sounds around a player
  • King of the Hill improvements, including ability for The Coalition to adjust more settings for competitive play
  • Removed active down from Active Reloaded Longshot sniper rifle and added/tuned active bonus for sniper bloom/aim
  • Bug fixes and tuning for skill-based matchmaking
  • Tuned red/blue colours for team shaders (Locust/COG)
  • Improved look of blood and gore in gameplay
  • Improved game performance to reduce screen tearing
  • Bug fixes and tuning for Controller Sensitivity Settings
  • Various bug fixes on maps, weapons, matchmaking, audio, and controls
  • Active downs are 100% removed

 

There are many positives to be taken from this, however, I feel the removal of the active snipe could seriously hinder gameplay (Unless the option to turn on actives still remains in privates). The ability for The Coalition to alter settings for Koth also suggests that that gametype will be forced upon us in the competitive scene.

Gfinity EU Pro League Results/Standings – 1st July

Yesterday the Gfinity EU Pro League played out its second week online with all 8 teams battling it out for the 3 points on offer. A quick reminder if you’re unfamiliar, there is 8 European teams playing 7 games to compete for a £10,000 prize pool with the top 4 getting an invitation to the Gfinity Summer Championships to compete for a $100,000 in August. I did a quick prediction post yesterday and I’m pleased to say I didn’t do too badly. Check out the results below;

Gfinity EU Pro League – 1st July Results

gfinpro

vitalityVitality Storm 5-1 VwS Gaming VwSlogo std.png

After a shock loss to the French of HyperGames Team last week in the league and a series of blunders at the EGO LAN in Brussells at the weekend, a win here for Vitality will come as welcome relief before AM2Pro coming up this weekend. VwS will be disappointed with the loss but it’s unlikely they will have been banking on the points from this game with Vitality being the favourites to win the league overall.

HGlogo std.png HyperGames Team 4-2 Over GamingOverlogo std.png

Not much of a shock with the result in this game, the Spanish of Over Gaming proving once again they are struggling in a league with Europe’s best teams. The French of HyperGames will be disappointed not to take more maps but will see this victory as another 3 points in proving they belong with Europe’s elite teams. The Spanish of Over Gaming look like they have a tough time ahead if they want to stay in the premier division, 1 point out of a possible 12 is not ideal.

Milllogo std.pngMillenium 0-6 InfusedInfslogo std.png

Ouch. Not many people expected a 6-0 win by Infused here, proving their latest transfers of LXT and Urban were the right decision. Millenium will be disappointed that they couldn’t even take a map against a team who’ve only just started playing together. The French will be pleased VwS also lost as it keeps them 1 point above the relegation zone, however even the thought of relegation is an embarrassing thought for one of the best teams in France. Infused will now be looking to see if they could do better than the third expected of them, is 1st or 2nd in their grasp now?

Epsilogo std.pngEpsilon 5-1 Gamers2G2logo std.png

Business as usual for an Epsilon squad who are really starting to get into their stride. After getting revenge on Vitality at the weekend with a 3-0 win in the Grand Final, this Epsilon team are going from strength to strength and even a Spanish online host couldn’t stop their momentum. The Spanish of G2 won’t have expected to win this game but will still be disappointed that they’re only 1 point away from the relegation zone. Can they rescue their season?

Gfinity Pro League Fixtures (and Predictions) – Wednesday 1st July

Tonight is Gfinity Pro League night as all 8 European teams in the Gfinity premier division battle it out for those all important league points. Last weeks games showed how different things are online compared to events and no one will be going into tonight thinking that they have a 100% win in the bag. So without further-a-do lets take a look at tonight’s games for week 3;

vitalityVitality Storm vs VwS Gaming VwSlogo std.png

This is a battle for Britain as Vitality will aim to get back into top spot once again whilst VwS will look for those crucial points to potentially stave off relegation come the end of the season. Both teams lost last week against opponents from continental Europe so will be pleased that they are playing fellow countrymen tonight.

Prediction: Vitality Storm 4-2

HGlogo std.pngHyperGames Team vs Overlogo std.pngOver Gaming

The inexperienced Spanish of Over Gaming are bottom of the league and facing a strong online team in the French of HyperGames. It could prove difficult for the Spanish who so far have only managed to get 1 point from a potential 9. After a poor performance at the Gfinity Arena in the opening weekend, HyperGames will feel confident after the 4-2 win over favourites Vitality Storm last week.

Predictions: HyperGames 5-1

Milllogo std.pngMillenium vs Infslogo std.pngInfused

This Millenium squad will be going up against a refreshed Infused squad, rumoured to have made tactical changes based purely on online performances after a 5-1 rumbling by Epsilon last week. Will that make the difference? The French of Millenium are always so unpredictable however after winning last week the confidence will be high. This is likely a match up we could see at the weekend too at AM2Pro so keep an eye out on the score of this one.

Prediction: 3-3 Draw

Epsilogo std.pngEpsilon vs G2logo std.pngGamers2

The final game of the week will feature the team that’s on form online and at events, Epsilon will be going into this thinking that 3 points is almost guaranteed but with the unpredictability of online, that’s not certain. Gamers2 will be looking to last weeks win over VwS for inspiration as they once again face an aggressive UK side.

Prediction: Epsilon 4-2

All the games will be streamed live with casting, head over to www.MLG.tv/Gfinity for the stream later this evening.

The Faction AU Join Integral Nation

The Faction AU have been going through a bit of an identity crisis since the start of the ACL Pro CoD League, initially starting out under the SnK banner before moving to their original name, The Faction AU. It has now changed again as they will be playing under the organisation Integral Nation. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because they had a squad play in the Call of Duty World Championship, playing in the group of death alongside Epsilon, SB and Team Kaliber.

integral

You can see the iN squad play in the ACL Pro CoD League every Tuesday and Thursday, whilst the team will also be in attendance at the Doesplay event coming up next month with a $10,000 AUSD prize.

Halo MCC ESL Major Series Final Results

In one of the most anticlimactic endings to a tournament, the European MCC ESL Major Series fizzled out in the final four, with two consecutive weeks of incomplete fixtures. The final stage of the tournament was ultimately contested by the only two teams to show up for their fixtures, Epsilon and CAZ eSports, with Epsilon twice coming out on top to scoop the €500 first place prize.

The trouble with missed fixtures started when Britons and tournament favorites Xenex, and Italians NEXT were unable to compete in the first weekend’s games. With almost no means of regaining the ground lost on their opponents in week one, Xenex and NEXT opted out of their second week’s fixtures leaving both teams tied in 3rd place with only two draws a piece.

After Epsilon won comfortably in week one, CAZ had to win last weekend’s face off 3-0 to keep things alive. Once again though it was Epsilon who prevailed, this time by a more narrow margin, 3-2. The result left Epsilon at the top of the table and condemned CAZ to second place, concluding the ESL Major Series.

Final Placements

1. Epsilon
2. CAZ eSports
3/4. Xenex
3/4. NEXT
