E3 2017 was full of hints about the future of gaming. TeamSCUF were glued to the screen whenever more information about Call of Duty: WWII was announced. Sony and Sledgehammer Games gave everyone a chance look at November's most anticipated shooter, and the reactions were very positive. And based on the reactions we saw on Twitter, some of the best pro gamers in the world are just as excited as the general public.

The overall theme was one of anticipation of the gameplay, the multiplayer, and of course: the "boots on the ground".











In the meantime, many pros were just plain excited:







Some players expressed their belief that next year was going to be one to remember:





While others were a little more cautious about all the excitement:



But TeamSCUF's feelings on the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII are perfectly summed up by The King himself:



What do you think about Call of Duty's upcoming release? Are you looking forward to boots on the ground, or will you miss the warm hum of your combat rig? Follow SCUF on Twitter and let us know!

Only one day down, and the action at MLG Atlanta has been nothing short of extraordinary! There have been some incredible plays and some surprising upsets, and at the end of the day, TeamSCUF is proud to count 3-0 records with OpTic Gaming, FaZe Clan, and Luminosity. If we had to choose a favorite moment of the day, it would definitely come down to the nail-biter between FaZe and Team Infused, which came down to a 3-2 win for FaZe after a 6-4 Search and Destroy!

The excitement was felt just as heavily at the TeamSCUF Booth as on the virtual battlefield, with luminaries like Evil Geniuses, Luminosity, and Rise Nation coming to the signing table to autograph merch and shake hands with some of their beloved fans. Friday is over, but it's pretty clear that the entire weekend of MLG Atlanta is going to be one for the books! If you're at the tournament, be sure to visit the SCUF Booth and say hello! Otherwise, make a point to visit SCUF at Twitter and Facebook for a of behind-the-scenes look at the action!

After a weekend at MLG Atlanta, Scuf Gaming HQ was invaded by FaZe Clan, who enjoyed an afternoon of taking a personal tour of the offices with CEO Duncan Ironmonger, talking shop and testing custom controllers.

TeamSCUF was thrilled to welcome ZooMaa, Clayster, Enable, and Attach to our headquarters and show these pro players a first hand look at the handcrafted magic behind the SCUF controllers that they play and win with!

The CoD: WWII Campaign Trailer is here and it is intense.

Released today, Activision and Sledgehammer have put together some of the best-looking (and most nail-biting) moments we’ve seen in a Call of Duty game to date. And with fans clamoring for a more gritty, realistic, and boots on the ground game, it’s clear that they’re getting what they’ve been looking for.

The official Call of Duty YouTube channel introduced us to our new protagonist and single-player game experience with this:

Call of Duty®: WWII tells the story of Private Ronald “Red” Daniels, a young recruit in the U.S. First Infantry Division who experiences combat for the first time on D-Day, one of the largest amphibious assaults in history. After surviving the beaches of Normandy, Red and his squad will fight their way across Europe, engaging the enemy in iconic battle locations such as the Hürtgen Forest and the Battle of the Bulge, as they make their way into Germany. The journey begins on November 3.”

CoD’s single-player campaigns have always had great writing and huge, show stopping moments, but this one looks to be their best one yet.
MLG Anaheim 2016 has come and gone, and the final Championship Sunday did not disappoint! #TeamSCUF was ecstatic to be there, meeting so many fans and gaming enthusiasts there for an exciting last day of Call Of Duty.

What what a last day it was:

A blistering second round saw OpTic Gaming defeat Rise Nation 3-0, advancing to face eLevate, who took a close 3-2 victory against Infused. And while eLevate put up an admirable fight, the heavily favored OpTic came out on top with a 3-2 Championship Match win, adding another tally to an already impressive series of accolades!

#TeamSCUF had an amazing time in Anaheim this weekend, and we hope that everyone else did too, whether you were there or watching from home. Congratulations to OpTic and every one of the amazing teams we got to see compete! Be sure to follow us @ScufGaming on Twitter for details on future events that we'll be attending this year!
