After a grueling month of competition in the Champions Series of League Play, compLexity’s Call of Duty team bested several thousand other United States Black Ops II players and earned the right to participate in the $1,000,000 Call of Duty Championship from April 5-7 in Hollywood, California.
Joining compLexity in what is being billed as the “ultimate high-stakes Call of Duty competition” are fellow Champions Series qualifiers RAGE, Tva, Vintage, Phoenix, Curse, Quantic, and Awe Sports.
During the Champions Series, compLexity amassed an impressive 800-30 (.964) record across more than 125 hours of play highlighted by win streaks of 73, 87, and their final 120 games. Along the way compLexity employed an open door policy where they would play any team at any time, a strategy team captain Patrick “ACHES” Price said several of the other top contenders avoided.
In a heated race for the eight Championship qualifying spots, compLexity spent the final two days of the season playing without rest. Price described the experience as “fighting to stay awake during a 48 hour grind session” where the team had to “stay hydrated… play well and maintain wins.”
When asked his thoughts on the $1,000,000 Championship Price said, “The Championship will be the biggest stage we have ever played on… it’s on another level given we’ve always played tournaments with a max first place prize of $10,000 – $15,000.” “I think we’re the best in the world under pressure, so the environment will favor us far more than any other team.”
In addition to the eight Champions Series online qualifiers, the Call of Duty Championship will host eight teams from Major League Gaming’s Winter Championship, eight teams from Electronic Sports League’s European Championship, and two teams from The Australian Cyber League. The qualification process for the tournament’s six remaining spots has yet to be announced, however tournaments are planned for South America and Asia.
