    OpTic should have won, but when they first played EG they did horrible, but 2nd place with $10K is still a win win #GreenWall #MLGAnaheim

    • EL Jimador

      They were up by like 30 points with 1:30 left and somehow choked it away. Optic always finds a way to lose.

      • Duke of hazard

        You clearly didn’t watch the game. Did you not see how they kept spawning strip since they got 3 capped? The whole EG flooded their mid ally, A flag, and motel, but noooooo. Ghosts being the stupid game it is, it made them only spawn at strip for them to get spawn trapped easily.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          MLG enables/allows spawn trapping? What a joke.

          • Duke of hazard

            It’s the game being crap. MLG cant control the spawns.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Still, Ghosts shouldn’t have e-Sports, then. It’s stupid.

          • Duke of hazard

            I guess you’re right on that part. They should have just stayed with BO2 because Ghosts had no support for Esports.

          • hi

            you’re acting like e-sports is what’s making ghosts bad, but in all honestly even without e-sports ghosts was still going to be trash . e-sports doesn’t do anything to game at all except change the in game setting lol.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            “without e-Sports Ghosts was still going to be trash” and yet you say things along the lines of “competitive players hate Ghosts”. No, e-Sports doesn’t make CoD successful. It’s only 5% of the community.

            e-Sports made both BO2 and Ghosts bad. It made people want to use the most bullshit in the game, and it influenced developers’ decisions on the patches. e-Sports changes at least 95% of the game’s settings to fit their needs. Why can’t they play 100% of the game? The same game we play? THAT is why e-Sports is bullshit and should cease to exist.

          • hi

            its trueee lol ghosts was going to be trash, anyhow you’re saying e-sports is 5% of the community , no I think its more than that its not only the pro’s and the mlg staff that are part of it theres the fans and the people who like playing the competitiveness the game brings.
            e-sport did make BO2 bad but ghosts was already headed that way anyways , but no I don’t think e-sports rule 95% of the in game setting otherwise the entire game would use the e-sports features , the e-sports in game features are just the same as the a normal in game settings its just a mix.
            but e-sports really started in COD 4 yeah there was no settings and stuff in the game but that’s where it started.

          • Muszic

            Lmfao did this kid really just say this? Lmao

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Kid? I’m 20 years old, quit defending e-Sports.

          • hi

            its not MLG’s fault , its the games fault , the game allows the spawn trapping because ghosts has the shittiest spawning system in the history of CoD.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            They still allow it, thus it’s still an issue.

          • hi

            yeah but don’t blame MLG they have not control over it , blame the shitty game or dev’s for allowing such things.

          • ONE BAR

            Where is this “Enable Spawn Trapping” setting. I’d like to turn that on every time I play plz.

        • Drillz

          Exactly. Its so much bullshit in Ghosts. Many pro players even admitted that it sucked for competitive. I was watching Denial play TCM I believe and that Blitz spawn over between the two buildings buy the 18 wheeler someone spawned right in front of a player rushing through there. That was basically a free cap for TCM.

  • Carter “Uathuil” Reed

    I see that EG has won $25,000.

    Soon, they will try to win $1,600,000 in Seattle. (Because $25,000 is not a lot of money)

    • Tony Rambo

      Dota 2 is giving 10 million this year. Biggest prize pool in the history of gaming.Amazing and deep game 😀

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        If I was in their shoes and if I didn’t win, I’d cry. That’s a shitload of money, there’s your entire life’s investment right there.

      • GodLikeLeftNut

        i heard it was millions didnt know it was 10! xD fuck i should of gotten into mmorpg instead of fps

      • Guest

        What’s amazing is that Valve can count to 10,000,000 but they can’t count to 3 XD

    • ~5,000,000 is the grand prize :O

  • Rafael

    I’m happy optic nation won!

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Damn dude this MLG thing is weird. OpTic wins the X-Games but lose to Evil Geniuses in Anaheim? I guess sometimes luck might be on your side.

    • hi

      honestly if it wasn’t for that rule of winning two BO5’s , OG would have won Anaheim as well, plus the fact that optic almost won that two BO5’s only to have the dom game chocked cause of terrible spawning system ghosts has .

  • Dammit. At least we finally see OpTic get some good placings.

  • TCM!TCM!TCM! So proud! EU in the Top 3!!!

  • Congrats to Evil Geniuses.. great team and great strategy…

  • So pretictable

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      It’s the same 3 teams with the same guns and maps every tournament. EXTREMELY predictable. MLG is a joke.

  • Ryumoau

    congrats to evil geniuses. 🙂

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    i cant even watch competitive any more. its been dumbed down so much latly, every one goes mental over 2 kills…. in domination…. really??? watching someone shoot 2 guys in the back commentator is like omg sick 2 piece there! -_- saw clayster get 2 piece in dom and spins around in celebration.. seriously what the fuck happened?

    • lol

      yeah a two piece is half of the team there lol , don’t know if you noticed . plus these are pro players getting a double kill agains’t pro’s is kinda of beast.

      • GodLikeLeftNut

        In Snd fair play but in dom.. Come on. A double kill is still a double kill and in csgo beast is more like quad. cod4 it was triples, double in Snd was sweet but no were near the over the top hype these days.. Maybe that’s just what I’m use to and maybe that’s why I feel this sorta thing has been dumbed down. But celebrating because you killed two guys in dom is stupid

  • PsychOutGaming

    Yay!!!! Optic Nation is in season 3

  • jordanxbrookes

    More Advanced Warfare information to be released this week.

  • CBass

    Great EG won again! How surprising is that? I bet nobody expected it
