OpTic Sweep Aside a Fiesty MF Black Side

The Green Wall gets off to a hot start in the Call of Duty World Championship Bracket Stage.

OpTic Gaming handled the Australian underdogs with a competitive 3-0 sweep to begin their hopes of a title run. Mindfreak Black fought hard, especially considering they were the second choice Australian team, but in the end the class difference was evident.

Mindfreak Black actually managed to tie up the Hardpoint at 120 a piece, but OpTic took over from there and closed out the game by a score of 250 - 148. Search & Destroy was also closer than expected, with MF Black mkaing the pro-OpTic crowd sweat a little bit. But in the end OpTic showed why they are the favorites, closing out the S&D round by a score of 6-4.

Dropping 0-2 against a team like OpTic is a tough task for anyone, and MF Black buckled in Game 3 Uplink. The Green Wall domination everyone expected finally took place, with OpTic taking Uplink 15-3.

Next up for OpTic is the Euro champs Splyce, while Mindfreak Black looks to continue their surprise run from the Loser's Bracket.

Vincent is a washed up former college athlete with a bad shoulder and a worse knee, but thankfully his hands are perfectly fine for gaming. He is often judged for thinking Advanced Warfare is the best Call of Duty, but your judgement won’t make him take down his AW poster that was signed by Angela Gots and Russell Richardson. Vincent is also better than Tom Henderson at everything.
