#UMGPhilly

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.

MLG Columbus

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

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.

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.
