Hollywood, the place of legends. This past weekend legends were certainly made at the 2013 Call of Duty Championships. 32 teams entered the arena but one team emerged. 16 team, double elimination.
Among the teams is the amazing, quick-scope group, Optic Gaming. But, to everyone’s surprise, Optic Gaming got knocked out early in the Championship. The final match came down to Fariko and Envyus in a stellar head to head match. With glory, follows gold. Fariko took home $400,000 while Envyus got $200,000. The final eight teams did not go home empty-handed, they were given $25,000.
