PRESS RELEASE – December 23 2013: Scuf Gaming is delighted to announce a partnership with UMG Gaming for 2014

 

UMG Gaming, provider of LAN events throughout the United States, has partnered with the professionals choice for console gaming controllers, Scuf Gaming!

UMG

 

Jeff Covington, Founder of UMG speaks“Scuf Gaming are a huge supporter of the Pro Gaming scene and a Company we have been wanting to work with for a long time. SCUF controllers are used by the majority of professional gamers – they are what the community want! We have always been impressed by the quality and innovation Scuf Gaming bought to the Pro Gaming market through the addition of their features and are very excited for the year ahead!

 

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder Scuf Gaming says; “As a Company who creates products for elite gamers, we have always kept a close relationship with key gaming event organizers and Gaming Leagues. UMG is a Company who has rapidly grown this past few years and have done so in an impressive way. This is great for the competitive gaming scene and I give full credit to their Management staff and look forward to seeing what 2014 holds!”

 

ABOUT SCUF GAMING: Until we invented the SCUF in 2010, gamers could only use compromising techniques like CLAW to play with more of their hand. Using back paddles, which mimic the front buttons, Scuf Gaming has made it possible to display more dexterity in a safe, ergonomic way. We understand the limitations of a normal controller for Professional gamers, who need to control over 20 functions whilst they’re in gameplay; making use of only 2 fingers and 2 thumbs is extremely limiting at the Top level. One size cannot fit all and will not fit all for the elite 10% of the community. It can restrict the advancement of play, the games and their enjoyment; hence why some Professional players were eventually forced to use techniques like CLAW; which can be very harmful to your hand with repetition. The paddles and trigger mechanisms that Scuf Gaming developed and patented allow each player to choose their preferred settings for gameplay and help them become the best gamer of they can be.

 

ABOUT UMG GAMING:

UMG provides LAN events throughout the United States and was formed in order to provide gamers a source for competitive events nationwide. It has since grown and expanded beyond the gaming scene to offer different services for corporate clients and all types of parties and events.

Julien "ZylewR" Louis, captain of Supremacy says:

We will be attending upcoming events with a Supremacy branded controller and I'm delighted that it's been unveiled.

ABOUT SCUF GAMING: Until the SCUF was invented in 2010; gamers could only use compromising techniques like CLAW to play with more of their hand. Using back paddles, which mimic the front buttons, Scuf Gaming has made it possible to display more dexterity is a safe, ergonomic way. Scuf Gaming also offers features such as adjustable hair triggers, trigger stops, military grade SCUF Grip and optional domed or concave sticks. SCUF Controllers are legally approved for use at most major competitions to include MLG, EGL, WGL, G-finity, Skylan, Reflex, UMG, ESL, etc. When we designed the SCUF, our focus was to reduce unnecessary latency in hand movement and allow experienced gamers to game for longer while using more of their hand in a safe and ergonomic way. We believe the paddles and adjustable hair triggers are a great advancement for Console Gaming and are ideal for gamers to display their skill and dexterity and pull off more exciting gameplays which in turn will increase audience interest!” For more information please visit www.scufgaming.com
MLG Columbus

 

Last weekend marked the first MLG of the new Call of Duty season. With 108 teams from around the globe heading to Columbus, Ohio to compete for the title of MLG Columbus champion.

 

Columbus was also the first opportunity for Call of Duty fans to see Infinity Ward's answer to the CoDCaster mode, made popular during the reign of Black Ops 2, along with new game modes like Blitz that had found their way into the play list. Scuf Gaming were also on site as one of the event's sponsors, with an exhibition both for fans to test out the latest Scuf Gaming products and purchase them over the course of the weekend.

 

The event wasn't without its surprises, with Optic Gaming having a rough ride in the first event of Ghosts. Other Scuf Gaming sponsored teams, Team EnVyUS, Team Kaliber and Complexity all fared better, with EnVyUS eventually settling for a fourth place finish, a marked improvement from only a few months ago. The final was eventually contested between the world #1, Complexity and Gfinity third place finishers, Team Kaliber.

 

The Grand Final was an epic affair and could have gone either way. Once again the boys of Complexity were able to dig deep when it mattered, though, and Clayster, Crimsix, Teepee and Aches helped themselves to their fourth consecutive event title; with G2, MLG Fall Invitational and ESWC preceding Columbus. Complexity have now equalled  the record breaking four successive titles set by Impact during the early stages of Black Ops 2, While also using Scuf Gaming controllers.

Call of Duty Ghosts – Getting the most out of the game with your SCUF Controller

Bakground Facebook the scuf

November marked the release of yet another Call of Duty title, the 10th in the series and a landmark title for the developers, Infinity Ward and the publishers, Activision. Call of Duty: Ghosts marks a slight change in direction for the developers, with more new features than we’ve seen for a while in a Call of Duty title. Not surprisingly, the game is gearing up towards the next generation of consoles. Maps are bigger than they’ve been in a long while, with vast terrains to explore while tactically taking down your foes. Once again the Scuf Gaming controller is the perfect tool to assist you in battle, whether you’re taking on virtual enemies or players from around the world. All of your favorite Call of Duty teams will be making the transition from Black Ops 2 to Call of Duty: Ghosts, including Optic Gaming, Complexity, EnVyUS, Team Kaliber, Prophecy and more. You can play like a Pro on Ghosts by using SCUF controllers that allow you to use more of your hand in a safe and ergonomic way. Pick up your favorite team’s controller by clicking here.  ScufGaming.com

 

Infinity Ward have introduced one or two new game modes, including Blitz that looks set to find its place in the competitive settings used by the first MLG event of this new campaign. Even more exciting for competitive players, eSports settings are set to be both introduced and premiered at MLG Columbus later this month. What this exactly means, no one really seems to know, however, if a Vine that was released is anything to go by, at the very least we’ll see the introduction of Infinity Ward’s answer to the popular CoDCaster mode that was included in the Black Ops 2 release. For those of you unaware of what CoDCaster mode did for Black Ops 2, it essentially allowed commentators and broadcast producers to spectate games in a manner to which they were not previously accustom. Allowing them to view streaks, quickly switch from player to play, see where all the players were on the map and more. Essentially improving the end product to the user watching at home.

 

Despite the popularity, Ghosts did not launch with these features and now we all wait with baited breath to see what they come up with as their version of these features. Going back to the game itself, Ghosts landed with a killer story line, a zombie style game mode for the first time in an Infinity Ward game and of course, more of the multiplayer we all know and love. Once again we go back to the Drop Shot being prevalent over the Jump Shot. As has been a continued trend with the IW/Treyarch switch, Infinity Ward games tend to reward players for Drop Shotting their opponent, i.e. holding prone while firing in a battle. On the contrast, Treyarch games saw a lot of players jumping while shooting in battle. The Scuf Gaming Controller is built for both of these functions and more. With your Scuf Gaming controller, we advise that you select a set up for A-B for your back paddles and switch your controller scheme to Tactical. What does this mean for you? You can now melee your opponent using one of the back paddles, meaning you never have to take your thumb off the right thumb stick. Of course, you can also jump with the other back paddle, once again making you more nimble in battle, giving you that edge over your opponent.

 

Most importantly, though, you can Drop Shot using the Right Thumb Stick while in battle. This means that you can reduce the surface area of your character, while exchanging bullets with a foe, to help you come out of crucial 1v1 situations as the victor, all while maintaining your precision aim. The result is more 1v1 battles won. Perfect for both public and competitive players. Of course, Ghosts also takes advantage of numerous other SCUF features. The Trigger Stops and Hair Triggers are built to reduce latency while aiming. When you react, you want your controller to react at the same speed. You don’t want to lose vital milliseconds waiting for your controller to get to the point where it registers your action. You want it to be touch sensitive. The SCUF controller is just that. Owners of the Hybrid can also take advantage of our improved ergonomic design, meaning you have the best grip possible on your controller.

 

Your Scuf Gaming controller is the perfect complement to your Call of Duty: Ghosts experience. If you don’t already own one, pick up a SCUF today to give you that extra edge when it matters.
