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.

Scuf Gaming Announces Partnership with Major League Gaming (MLG)

PRESS RELEASE – September 19, 2013: Scuf Gaming is delighted to announce a partnership with Major League Gaming (MLG) who have been a dominant force in the competitive eSports scene for over 10 years! Whether it’s with their live events, or through their thriving online community within MLG: Play (formerly Game Battles; GB), MLG attracts millions of enthusiastic gamers from across the globe to watch and to play in their competitive online environment, bringing growth to the eSports world. Through the new partnership, Scuf will showcase their products via MLG online properties, events and more.

“We are delighted to be partnered with MLG, the leader in the eSports community,” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder Scuf Gaming. “Since our humble beginnings we have always strived to become fully recognized as the premiere Gaming Controller Company so today is a big milestone for us at Scuf Gaming. Every SCUF controller is built with the gamer’s personal preference and style in consideration. Since creating the SCUF Controller, we have worked extremely hard to support the professional and elite gaming community where we are now adopted by over 85% of the Top Pro Gamers. We have spent almost 3 years educating gamers on how to use paddles and on how to utilize more of their hand use, in a safe and ergonomic way; helping to enhance their gaming experience and skill during competitive game play. We love what we do and continually strive to improve and innovate for the Pro Gaming market. We feel privileged to be working with Major League Gaming as their commitment to excellence is unsurpassed and I personally can’t wait for the year ahead!”

“We are excited to work with Scuf Gaming to further introduce their high-quality controllers to Major League Gaming,” said Sundance DiGiovanni, CEO and founder, Major League Gaming. “Scuf has created a great, customizable controller that addresses the needs of gamers and we look forward to rolling out our partnership in the coming months.”

ABOUT SCUF GAMING: Until the SCUF was invented in 2010, gamers could only use compromising techniques like CLAW to play with more of their hand. Using back paddles, which mimic the front buttons, Scuf Gaming has made it possible to display more dexterity in a safe, ergonomic way. We understand the limitations of a normal controller for Professional gamers, who need to control over 20 functions whilst they’re in gameplay; making use of only 2 fingers and 2 thumbs is extremely limiting at the Top level. One size cannot fit all and will not fit all for the Elite 10% of the community. It can restrict the advancement of play, the games and their enjoyment; hence why some Professional players were eventually forced to use techniques like CLAW; which can be very harmful to your hand with repetition. The paddles and trigger mechanisms that Scuf Gaming developed and patented allow each player to choose their preferred settings for gameplay and help to make them become the best gamer of their ability.

SCUF controllers have become very well known in the Professional Gaming Community, especially after one of the most recent events; COD Championships in Los Angeles, where 126 of the 128 Pro-players competing were using a SCUF Controller. Most recently Scuf Gaming released the NEW SCUF Hybrid – make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to own one. For more information, please visit www.ScufGaming.com
