Surprises included Team Revenge that have made it all the way to Championship Sunday.

Group A:

Group A featured OpTic Gaming, Team Orbit, NxG Gaming, and Vitality X. OpTic Gaming took this Group by storm, winning all their series and only dropping 1 match to Team Orbit. With that, OpTic Gaming and Team Orbit have advanced from Group A.

Group B:

Group E: 

Group E featured Team EnVyUs, Team Meance, Mindfreak, and UX Gaming. After a shaky regional performance, Team EnVyUs had a strong showing in Day 1. Although Mindfreak put up a good fight, EnVyUs was able to win their match 3-0 against them. Team EnVyUs and Mindfreak advanced from this Group.

Group G featured FaZe Black, TCM Gaming, DA.Below Zero, and Ascentia. FaZe Black was able to sweep through this group to secure their spot. Many people expected TCM, the team that placed second at EU Regionals to advance too, but Below Zero came out strong and took the second spot in this Group.

Group H:

This group featured Team Kaliber, Epsilion, Strictly Business, and Integral Nation. This group was termed the ‘group of death.’ Strictly Business was able to take a commanding lead in this Group, securing the top spot. The remaining spot was between Team Kaliber and Epsilon. The match between them went all the way to a Game 5, where Team Kaliber emerged victorious. Strictly Business and Team Kaliber advanced from this Group.

Official Recap Video:

  • k5berry

    Any crazy Uplink games? I hear those are amazing to watch and I’ve never gotten to actually see one, so I hope MLG or someone will have some of them available.

    • PoppyMelt

      Optic Nation vs. Exile5 Comeback Uplink

      • OG vs Orbit was great haha man that Uplink game they rekt em

      • k5berry

        I’ll search for it, thanks!

  • Slothigans

    There should be mini competitions for people at home lol. For like DLC and what not.

  • ScOott

    Still want to know how the free camo going to work … Can I just watch the first 5 minz Tomoz and get my camo or do I have to watch all of it :-s

  • zack

    OpticG just got beat in the first round lol

  • k5berry

    FaZe Black just missed a diffuse by a quarter of a second. Sooooo close. Man CoD Competitive is actually rly great.

    Oh man this is epic right now.

    This is it. 5-5 SnD Match 5.

    Oh man, Orbit won it. This was insane haha.

  • Ryumoau

    great recap video. 🙂

  • FaZe Black out Epsilon out TCM out ON out FaZe Red losers OG losers nV losers. Wow

    • Damn definitely gonna watch the recaps later

      • Yeah, if you do like eSports it’s a very interesting champs with all those quality teams in losers

  • eSportZzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Watching CoD as an eSport is so boring. It’s just people jumping around with their aim-assisted BAL’s thinking they are good. How about playing proper games like Battlefield 4 and CSGO where teamwork and precision are crucial. I suppose it just appeals to kids these days just like the games themselves.

  • LovekillerX

    People who are interested in different movement in next CoD check this out:


    Also it is coming to old gen too:


    Shinobi is a known leaker and he has got things usually right.

    • ScOott

      If this is true … I will cry, honestly :-/ …. I know he got stuff right before, but I don’t trust him as much as u n guywithbrains does … If he is correct about that he will gain my support … I pray to juses he’s wrong tho

      • LovekillerX

        Well he was asked if he has some friends working in Treyarch studios and he answered “something like that.” But we can’t be sure and everything is just a rumor. But honestly I trust Shinobi because he has got many things right before. I don’t believe that earlier statements have been just guessing with big luck.

        • ScOott

          Imo he just knows how to word stuff.. But to say it’s going to be similar to Titanfall is a pretty bold statement, none of that vivid talk… for that to be true for me that means sideways wall running and being able to jump really high with some kind of tech …

          • LovekillerX

            To be honest I would like to see “boots on ground” movement. Exo suits are enough for me in every third year. But I don’t mind if next CoD’s movement will be similar to Titanfall. For others it may sound pretty stupid and I guess that majority wants “boots on ground” movement to return.

            If this is the case we will propably see “boots on ground” movement to return in IW’s CoD.

          • ScOott

            I think for most that would be the only way that they would buy an iw game so would make good business sense … after ghosts they would need all the help they can get … But will have to wait n see if the leak is true 😮

          • Guywithbrains

            Former Naughty Dog developer… returning multiplayer guy from MW2 times… something big is happening. Talking about Ghosts 2.

          • ScOott

            Hopefully your right … Plot twist the development team considered the worst, could possibly end up being the best 😮

          • Smayo

            Not going to change a damn thing, no matter how many high profile game developers they attract as long activision keeps pushing the e-sports agenda CoD will decline year after year for us casual players

      • Guywithbrains

        I see my name! I am a celebrity!

        Lol joking… but seriously I miss boots on the ground movement because it is really hard to get 30 killstreak in AW. Also classic movement would bring back a part of that “feel” from original Modern Warfare series.

        However, I also like exos but I don’t want them to become part of the gameplay in every title. This is leading to the sad fact that only Ghosts 2 will have classic movement IF this is true.

        • ScOott

          Lol … With SBMM you wouldn’t/shouldn’t be able to get them 30 plus kills no matter if it was boots on ground movement or not … But yh if it’s true I think they will lose ALOT of preorders and purchases … I always hated the people complaing about cod needs to change, I hate them even more now

    • RdJokr

      Man, I was kinda hoping Activision would just ditch old gen already. No offense to old gen guys, but let’s be real: would you REALLY want another old gen COD game after the mess that was AW? It’s a miracle that game even managed to run on old gen, let alone at 60 FPS.

      But whatever, as long as I get my optimized PC game, I ain’t gonna complain.

      • LovekillerX

        Yeah I see people who want to see maxed out next gen version of Call of Duty. We already saw what AW could do and it was also on old gen. Imagine next gen only Call of Duty.

        But I still understand that old gen is being supported. There are still so many players who don’t own next gen console. For me it is too early to let old gen go. But maybe in couple of years?

        • Ak74u

          I think treyarch’s call of duty this year should be the last cod on old gen.

    • If this turns out to be true I’m done with cod.

      • ScOott

        Do u know who frankieonpc is ? … Ur name is on one of his videos !

        • Yes I know him and I think someone linked the video here ages ago. Can you link it? 😀

  • Alex

    TBH I really don’t care.. AW is boring

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      I agree. Idk how these morons enjoy watching other people play a game when they can play it themselves. Such a waste of time.

      • RdJokr

        Same reason anyone watches sport, when they could just go play the sport themselves.

        • LovekillerX

          This. Upvote for you mate.

        • Duke of hazard


      • noobswontlie

        Probably because some of them CAN’T play the game themselves?

      • Kobrah

        They probably like watching it for the same reason you visit Call of Duty websites…

      • Oscar

        Lmaoo thats like saying i dont understand how these morons are watching the superbowl when they can go out and play football themselves

  • Ak74u

    Anything on ascendance dlc?

    • LovekillerX

      Today (sunday) we should get a trailer for new Zombies map I think?

      • Ak74u

        Hopefully, last trailer was brief

  • ScOott

    Cutn wayt fur zumbi traylor tu dey

  • zombiefreak935

    The one game Optic…
