SCUF’s Dreamhack Wrapup!

Dreamhack Atlanta 2017 made for an amazing weekend. With a nail-biting Halo finale that saw Splyce defeat OpTic, this was a weekend of great gaming, brilliant personalities, and enough excitement to keep everyone talking. SCUF was there to join in, and not an hour went by without something great to see and do.

The SCUF Booth was a popular destination, with pro gamers such as Ninja, Luminosity, and SoaR Gaming visiting to talk about the new SCUF IMPACT. The EnVyUs Rocket League team came by to discuss the benefits of using a SCUF with the best car/soccer hybrid ever made, and what better way to end the weekend than with a performance by Waka Flocka Flame? Dreamhack 2017 was an amazing weekend, and SCUF can’t wait to come by again next year!

Scuf Gaming’s GuardianCon Wrapup!

GuardianCon

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!

The SCUF CWL Sheffield 2017 Recap!

It was a weekend to remember as some of Europe’s finest Call of Duty players met up in Sheffield to prove who was the best on their side of the pond! After a 3rd place win at Anaheim last week, the general consensus was that Epsilon was the favorite to win, and they did not disappoint. One stunning victory after another, Epsilon brought all their aggression to the grand final, taking down Red Reserve in a 3-0 finish that came down to the final few seconds of an Uplink match.

With this victory fresh in their mind, it’s become clear that Epsilon is ready for the opportunity to prove themselves stateside. With Splyce also making their name known this season, it’s clear that the CoD Championship is going to have more than just American teams set to make a splash.

The final Call of Duty World League open event has ended. Over the weekend, 113 teams fought it out, with Luminosity Gaming emerging triumphant at MLG Anaheim after a 3-1 win in the grand final against Splyce. There were many standout moments from Epsilon, Evil Geniuses, and Enigma6, and we are sure that the remainder of this year’s Call of Duty season will be full of surprises, upsets and high-octane competition.

Scuf Gaming was there for all the action in Anaheim, and the SCUF Booth was set up and ready to go the moment the doors opened on Friday. Between the MLG Anaheim Giveaway, all the battles onstage, and the autograph sessions with teams like OpTic, FaZe, EnVyUs, eUnited, and Luminosity, there was no limit of excitement. Now, we are hyped and geared up for these final months of competition before the CoD World Championship in August!

Paddles and Poker Chips: SCUF Visits Super High Roller Bowl 2017

It was a week of cards, millions of dollars, and heartbreak, but the Super High Roller Bowl 2017 has drawn to a conclusion with the triumph of Christoph Vogelsang. With his victory, he places himself as the second highest poker winnings earner in Germany, behind only fellow German Fedor Holz.

It was Scuf Gaming’s first poker tournament, and TeamSCUF took pride in the nerves of steel displayed by our affiliates, that includes Holz, Rainer Kempe, Steffen Sontheimer, Christian Christner, and Koray Aldemir: all of whom use games like Call of Duty, Overwatch, and FIFA to relax and even sharpen their skills on the poker table. From the very beginning, this high-stakes tournament was clearly going to be one for the books, with the inclusion of many legendary poker players, and even a wild card in the form of comedian Kevin Hart.

Ultimately, TeamSCUF’s players didn’t make it to the final table, but it was an amazing experience nonetheless, and we were happy to offer fully customized SCUF IMPACTs to each of our affiliates to keep them playing at their best, whether they’re at the table or on the battlefield!

Scuf Gaming Sponsors the World’s Top Poker Players in the Super High Roller Bowl airing on NBC in Las Vegas, the World Championship of High Stakes Poker

super high roller poker bowl scuf gaming controllersATLANTA, GA – May 26, 2017 – Scuf Gaming, global leader and innovator in video gaming controllers, announces its partnership with the top five German poker players attending the Super High Roller Bowl in Las Vegas, including Fedor Holz, one of the world’s top poker players and currently 7th in the world for all time money list, Rainer Kempe, winner of last year’s Super High Roller Bowl, and top players Steffen Sontheimer, Christian Christner, and Koray Aldemir. The five German players will all wear the SCUF logo during the tournament, taking place at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, May 28 – June 1. The Super High Roller Bowl is considered the world championship of high stakes poker where the world’s top players compete for a prize pool of $16.8 million and the winner walks away with $6 million as well as the coveted Super High Roller Bowl championship ring. Bringing some celebrity star power to this year’s event, world renowned actor and comedian Kevin Hart rounds out the 56-player field.

Fedor Holz, Professional Poker Player and Co-Founder of Primed Mind said, “In my downtime, I love to play Call of Duty, Overwatch and FIFA to cool down and take a mental break from poker tournaments. With my competitive nature, I love focusing on being the best so playing with the best equipment is essential – SCUF has, by far, the best controllers! It’s a natural fit for me, Rainer, Steffen, Christian and Koray as we love to play video games together and we’re thrilled to have SCUF on board for the Super High Roller Bowl.”

After last year’s Super High Roller Bowl, Fedor sought a new challenge and decided to create the mindset coaching app, Primed Mind. The Primed Mind app uses the the same mental coaching techniques that his mental coach, Elliot Roe, has used to train Olympic Athletes, Esports Pros, High Stakes Poker Players, UFC Champions and Business Executives. Fedor shot to the top of the poker world in a matter of a few years and, to date, has amassed over $20 million in career earnings. Fedor credits much of his success to mental coaching, building confidence and becoming a better athlete while unlocking mental, physical and emotional strengths.

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO and Founder of Scuf Gaming has a similar outlook to science and focus when it comes to being the best. “We call the science behind competitive gaming SCUFOLOGY, connecting the brain, hand and eye with our intelligent controller. Our DNA is centered around designing gaming peripherals that increase hand use while improving comfort and gameplay in a safe, intuitive and ergonomic way. SCUF believes the power of the tools professional athletes use is key to their success.”
