Map call outs. That is all they have over me. And since most of you are better than me, I guess he was right.
Boring gameplay, OP weapons, cheap skills and idiotic followers. That is the case for most of’em. Maybe there is one team like left analog or maybe even more but the lot of them are campers.

Little breakdown of each group and final records in pool play.
Only two real surprises in pool play. Unite not making through and also Millenium. Unite has Clayster who had to pick up 3 new teammates because his other 3 were under the age of 17. Clayster is considered the best FAL in the game and also one of the best anchors. Anchors is a term given to the player that can control where his team spawns in CTF but more importantly in Raid. He picked up 3 from team Prophecy who were considered one of the best teams in Europe but for whatever reason didn't qualify. He picked up Shane, Gunshy and Tommey.
Millenium has probably the biggest named player in European COD, Gotaga. He's got like 169k followers on twitter. Apparently he's good but he got raped by Soar and Col.
Brazils team that qualified was not the team that showed up at Cod Champs. The qualified team had troubles getting their passports in order because of lack of proper documentation. The players that made up Team Ssof were 4 complete randoms from Brazil that had no experience playing together. They got dominated in all 3 of their matches. During one of their matches, their player iPaul went a combined 1-26 in the Hardpoint and SnD. Going 0-20 in Hardpoint Slums.
Ogre 2, probably the goat of console competitive gaming didn't make it out of group play. (4 time national Champ in Halo, winning a National championship in Ce, halo 2,3 and Reach).

Top 4 teams that were still in it were:
envyus already has secured a spot for 1st or 2nd - They are awaiting the winner of the "losers" bracket to play in the CHAMPIONSHIP. (They are guaranteed $200k for 2nd place, they could get $400k if they win it all).
Fariko Impact was waiting to play either complexity or optic in the finals of the loser bracket.
Just watched Optic v Complexity. They play a best of 5 map rotation. Each team had won 2 maps. Came down to SnD and its a first team to 6 round wins, wins the map. This game ended up tied 5-5 in rounds. Can you imagine the tension?
Now each of these teams are already guaranteed 4th place with a chance of placing higher. 4th place wins $100k.
Scumpii ends round 6 with a 3 piece game winning killcam, after only managing to get 2 kills through the first 10 rounds.
So the Bracket looks like this:
Envyus v ? - 1st place gets $400k, 2nd gets $200k
Fariko Impact v Optic Gaming - 3rd place gets $120k
^^^ these games are played tomorrow.
I think I got all that info right.

Fariko Impact vs nV is going to be nuts. nV leads 3-2 going into the match.
97,000 people watched that on twitch/ callofduty/ xbox dashboard.
I expect the viewer count finals to be around 85k since OG ain't in it.

Finals will be on 360 though.
Was pretty good games. If Nadeshot would of pulled off that SnD instead of dying, games would of been a closer contest.
OG would have been up 2-1 goin into Raid Hardpoint, which was clearly going to be a loss. And it would of went into a 2-2 map tie and played on a 5th map.
Optic Chokeshot, lmao.
