The Race To Prestige continues into its third day, and our look back at the history of The Race pushes its way into 2013.
2013 brought the world Call of Duty: Ghosts, and a new sense of charitability to The Race. Actively requesting donations for the Call of Duty Endowment during the stream, a familiar group of players banded once again under the team alias of “Hashtag The Race”. This year’s team consisted of TmarTn, iiJERiiCHOii, MrErnestLe, MuzzaFuzza, and GoldGlove. What followed was another year of highlights and action, coupled with sleep-deprived humor, and the exploration of a completely new world in the Call of Duty universe. Far from the only players aiming for glory, “Hashtag The Race” would be joined in the trial by pro-gaming legends OpTic Gaming, Complexity, and EnVyUs. So no matter what, The Race was going to be a firestorm.
Regardless of the competition, “Hashtag the Race” would be formidable contenders. By the time Ghosts was released, the team was already solidified into their individual roles of experience-looting super soldiers. Whether they were tired or not, there was no shortage of causes to celebrate, including MrErnestLe’s first K.E.M. killstreak, which had everyone on stream holding their breath in anticipation…
And, of course, the greatest lesson of all that we learned watching the livestream: never get within 50 feet of MuzzaFuzza when he has access to a minigun.
At the end of an epic, sleepless week of gaming, a familiar face reigned supreme. oTradeMark and PWNSTARZdotCOM were declared the first Prestige Masters in 2013 for Call of Duty: Ghosts. But ultimately, “Hashtag The Race” declared the entire event a victory, having raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Call Of Duty Endowment. Another fast-paced Race drew to a close, but in terms of charity and excitement, the best was yet to come.
