There is something really spectacular about covering your first major event, especially an international event like Gfinity. Waking up at 4 am is a horrible event for a night owl, and covering a 12+ hr event for two days is sure to wear you out. Typing CompLexity’s Road to Victory article for eSportsNation left my hands shaking and my fingers numb, something that has never happened before, but it is a satisfying feeling knowing that people are using you as their number one resource during an event. eSportsNation has such a dedicated team, and it’s an honor to be a part of it. One thing I often find myself repeating to people is the fact that writing is work. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. But it’s one of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever been able to do, and putting those skills to the test for an event was exhausting and amazing.
CompLexity ultimately won the $30,000 first prize in a grueling battle against Epsilon, the team most people were surprisingly rooting for. With CompLexity being the winners of Gfinity 1, I kind of suspected this reaction from the fans, and Epsilon was definitely a deserving team. However, CompLexity made an amazing comeback and showcased why they are one of the best Call of Duty teams in the world. But other teams such as EnVyUs really provided some exciting entertainment, with Karma pulling off a wicked ninja defuse against UNiTE to help spring them into the semi-finals.
For those who may have missed it, here’s the ultimate showdown between CompLexity and Epsilon. Thanks to everyone who showed support! Call of Duty eSports is slowly growing and it’s so amazing to be a part of it.
