Cheats and Walkthroughs
The first Major League Gaming Pro Circuit event of 2011 is MLG Dallas coming up this weekend, and to get you prepped and ready to go we’re featuring a few teams and players to watch for from each of the three main games: Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops,and StarCraft 2. Here are our Call of Duty: Black Ops players to watch.
At MLG Dallas this weekend it will be the first time that Call of Duty: Black Ops is making an appearance on the Pro Circuit. The Black Ops tournament is a standard open bracket double elimination that can support as many as 224 teams. Quite a few of them have shown they’re ready to make a big splash and go for the $10,000 prize. With Black Ops being a relatively new game in a brand new venue, all sorts of crazy things can happen but we’re sure our three favorite picks will make an impact, so let’s get started.
Optic Gaming – Nadeshot, JKap415, BigTymer, Merk
Team Optic Gaming is currently the household name when it comes to professional Call of Duty. Coming out in first place in MLG’s online qualifiers and second place against team Leverage in a $25,000 tournament, Optic is one of the few pro teams left that is committed to sniper gameplay at a time when most pros favor automatic weapons. They might bring those fun to watch sniping skills out in Dallas, but whatever they choose to do it will be fun to see the giants of Call of Duty competing on the big stage.
Quantic Leverage – AcheSlaya, Teepee2, Bob3195, ScumperJumper
Quantic Leverage will be participating in their first ever Pro Circuit event in Dallas, but they’re no stranger to competition. This top seeded team coming was recently able to pull off a win in a $25,000 tournament over favored Optic Gaming in a close 3-2 victory. They also picked up new player ScumperJumper (a.k.a. Scumpi) and with their tightened roster they’re a new favorite going into MLG Dallas.
Envy Us – Hastro, iStaiNViLLe, xxterroristxx, Str8Cannon
Team Envy Us is back and ready to win the first Black Ops title in Dallas. With heavy hitters and community favorites like Hastro and Stainville backing up their roster, Envy Us is the ultimate fan favored team to win.
Other honorable team mentions include Team Fear and Team Obey. Obey is going into Dallas as the third ranked seed and has been dominating on the ladder, while Team Fear is looking to upset all the top seeds. Again, Call of Duty: Black Ops is a new game to the circuit and what most of these popular teams need to watch out for are the unknown competitors hoping to make their way in the tournament scene. The unknowns have the best odds, as their competition won’t know what to expect when it comes to their strategic styles or tactics.
Who is your favorite Call of Duty: Black Ops team and who do you expect to take the first ever MLG Pro Circuit Black Ops competition in Dallas?
