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.
