This week’s profile takes a look at Elevate’s Jordan ‘Reedy’ Reed.



As with many of Europe’s prominent players, Reedy made his start on the domestic circuit, rising from the proving grounds of EGL events.

Reedy’s first big results came towards the end of Call of Duty: Ghosts, when he found himself competing alongside Rhys ‘Rated’ Price, a player who would feature on several of Reedy’s squads over the years, as part of Exertus. The team would reach the final of EGL 13, an important milestone in Reedy establishing himself among Europe’s elite.

Over the course of Advanced Warfare, Reedy solidified his position among the upper echelons, playing alongside the established elite and appearing in several finals over the course of the season, also picking up his first event wins with Epsilon. Since then, he’s remained on Europe’s premier teams, competing in every season of the Call of Duty World League as well as attending his first Call of Duty Championship during Black Ops 3.

Current team

For Infinite Warfare, Reedy has represented Elevate, who acquired Reedy’s European roster following the release of their North American squad from the previous title.

The team got off to a promising start, attending the CWL Vegas Open and making their way into pool play from the open bracket. The team ultimately finish top-12, eliminated by the formidable OpTic Gaming. It was a solid starting point, from which Elevate were able to qualify for the all-important Global Pro League, notably picking up a third-place finish at the CWL London Invitational along the way.

Coming in, however, the team were largely overlooked, with expectations for the squad lowered further by their openness about a lack of team practice prior to their group stage.

Despite this, the Elevate squad performed well in Group Green, putting on a solid showing against OpTic Gaming in spite of their ultimate defeat on both occasions. In the end, the squad were able to finish third, taking down fellow Europeans Red Reserve to secure a spot in Stage 2, a pool play position at the upcoming CWL Anaheim and a guaranteed place at this year’s Call of Duty Championships.


Career highlight

While Reedy has found plenty of success over the course of his career to date, in many ways he’s still searching for that one big win. Where several of his former team mates have collected that major title or carried the torch for Europe at international events, somehow things have never quite fallen into place for that single, defining moment for Reedy.

There is, however, a kind of quieter distinction achieved by Reedy, the kind that comes from the pursuit of excellence itself, the unrelenting drive towards success. Reedy may at times be overlooked for lacking that marquee win, but he has been a constant presence at the elite end of Call of Duty for several years now, and his efforts having taken him to finals and trophies, as well as playing a part in forcing his contemporaries to elevate their own game.



Reedy has come under his fair share of criticism at times for his performance in-game, but there’s a reason he remains near the top of European Call of Duty. While he’s rarely the flashiest player, or the one at the top of the score-board, that’s not the role he needs to play to ensure success.

Not everybody can be the most prolific slayer in the game, there simply aren’t enough kills to go around. Some players shine in this role, but in order for them to do so they need space, support, and team mates who are willing to sacrifice their own stat line for the success of the team. They need players like Reedy.


Public Persona

Reedy has long been one of the more outspoken professional players, not just in Europe but in the world. Where it can be easier and in some senses more profitable to take the path of least resistance and focus on building popularity, Reedy has never been afraid of speaking his mind.

It may not be a route to becoming the best-loved player in the world, but if there’s one thing that can be said for Reedy it’s that you know what you’re getting. He’s not frequently caught holding back when he has an opinion, and while that can make him a controversial figure at times, brutal honesty – particularly in combination with Reedy’s naturally opinionated manner – can offer a fresh take where others are often content to comply with the status quo.


GuardianCon is a celebration of Destiny for a good cause, and last weekend marked SCUF’s first appearance there! Destiny’s community is one of the biggest in the world, and TeamSCUF was excited to meet every Guardian we could.

GuardianCon is one of Destiny’s most popular conventions, with thousands of attendees, countless exhibits, and an impressive amount of donations going to charity. In addition to some amazing live gameplay, there were countless YouTube and Twitch guests, including Gothalion and Professor Broman, both of whom chose this moment to unveil their new SCUF controller designs!

The excitement was in the air from the very beginning, and the crowds of fans were huge. The SCUF Booth was right up front to meet the massive party of Guardians, with a gaming booth used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the new SCUF IMPACT during sessions of Destiny. Needless to say, that booth was crowded from morning to night. Gothalion and Broman's designs have been requested by fans for a long time, and the enthusiasm at their unveiling caused Gothalion's to sell out in a matter of hours.

Between exhibitions, Q&As, and some incredible cosplay, convention attendees could head over to a Meet & Greet to get autographs from some of the biggest authorities in the Destiny world, including Gothalion, Broman, Kraftyy, Triplewreck, Luminosity, and the hosts of Crucible Radio.

GuardianCon is probably best known for its partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, with some of the best Destiny players in the world exhibiting their skills for donations that will help some very deserving people. This year, GuardianCon raised a staggering 1.2 million dollars: and that was before the doors even opened to the public!

It was an amazing weekend full of excitement and good will, and you can bet that Scuf Gaming will be there in 2018!

Call of Duty in 2014 got off to a flying start with the first UMG event of the year. A record turn out saw more than one hundred North American Ghosts players descend upon chilly Philly. Last time out the absence of the World's best team, Complexity, left the UMG title wide upon. Eventually it was two Scuf Gaming teams that battled it out in the grand final; Vanquish and SoaR. Despite SoaR taking a one series lead into the final, it was Vanquish who prevailed and took home the UMG Dallas Championship.


Fast-forward several months and another UMG title was on the line. This time around all the big hitters were present. Complexity, the current World #1, had been unable to defend their UMG title in Dallas due to lack of attendance and were therefore gunning to regain number one spot. There are no easy rides in Call of Duty and as always, they would have to take down the best of the best, including Scuf Gaming sponsored teams Optic Gaming, EnVyUS, CurseLV, Team Kaliber and travelling Englishmen, Team Orbit.


Many fans believe that Scuf Gaming sponsored Faze should have beaten the World #1 team but Complexity dug deep and took a tight series 4-3 in only their second round of competition. After that it was business as usual as Complexity bagged their place in yet another Grand Final. The top three was rounded out by CurseLV and Team Kaliber who battled it out for the chance to take on Complexity for the UMG Philadelphia title. The Loser Bracket Final was less of a close affair, with Team Kaliber sweeping the series and guaranteeing them at least second place.


Despite taking the first map, Team Kaliber were beaten 3-1 in the Grand Final, meaning Complexity were once again crowned Champions. As always you can buy our Pro team controllers, including Complexity, Team Kaliber, Optic Gaming and EnVyUS, with the Scuf Gaming Curse controller coming soon. Scuf Gaming would like to congratulate Complexity on yet another tournament victory, as well as UMG for another successful event. We hope to see you all at the next UMG.
