Call of Duty 2014 Championships
Championship Sunday arrived at the Call of Duty Championship, which saw six teams battle it out in a crescendo of combat, with compLexity coming out on top to take home the $400,000 prize and title of Call of Duty World Champions!
CompLexity started the day with a head-to-head clash against rivals OpTic Gaming. After compLexity dominated the first bout of Domination, OpTic pulled it back to take a 2- 1 series lead, putting them in prime position to claim the cash and coveted Call of Duty World Champions status… but there was ammo left in compLexity’s gun, and on the final side of the second Domination they were able to turn it around, square the series, and sweep the deciding Search and Destroy 6-0, putting them through to the Grand Finals.
Meanwhile, EnVyUs were storming through the Lower Bracket, picking off opponents like Team Kaliber, Epsilon eSports, VexX Revenge, and Trident T1dotters. They entered the Grand Finals on an envious 12-map winning streak.
The battles in the two brackets set the scene for a spectacular Grand Final, where Upper Bracket winners compLexity would go up against EnVyUs, lords of the Lower Bracket. CompLexity started strong, pulling away in a hard-fought Domination match on Strikezone, which showcased their slaying skills, as they were able to win the crucial battles at the B Flag.
Up next: Search and Destroy on Freight. EnVyUs opened up a 4-2 round lead with an impressive performance from Anthony “Nameless” Wheeler, but compLexity’s teamwork and tactical precision prevailed, allowing them to flip the game on its head and take the map in a 6-5 overtime win. With elimination on the horizon, the pressure was on EnVyUs to perform in the third and final game: Blitz on Warhawk. But it wasn’t to be, as compLexity stole an early lead, parked the bus, and caught EnVyUs on the counter to clinch the map and the Call of Duty Championship.
