Highlights from the G2 ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ tournament

The second annual Gfinity Call of Duty tournament was held in London, England earlier this week, and the American based competitive team Complexity has walked away with the $30,000 grand prize. Check out some of the highlights from the show in the video below and gallery above.

The event took place on October 12 and 13 and was watched by over 500 people in attendance, with hundreds of thousands more tuning in online via Major League Gaming according to Gfinity (exact viewership numbers have not been released yet, but are expected soon).

The event is the UK’s largest Call of Duty tournament, and featured 16 of the top ranked competitive CoD teams in the world. While the winners received $30,000, the full prize pot was $70,000 was awarded to multiple teams. Following the success of the G2 event, Gfinity and MLG will continue to work together, so expect a full schedule of events hosted by Gfinity and covered by MLG.

As for the competition itself, the event opened with a fairly major upset as Optic Gaming lost in the qualifying round. In the finals it came down to Complexity and UK based team Epsilon. Despite losing, Epsilon still walked away with $15,000 in prize money. Not a bad day, all things considered.

The event will likely serve as a warm-up for both teams who head to Florida for the MLG Fall Invitational, which takes place October 18 and 19. Along with a Dota 2 championship, the top four team in Call of Duty: Black Ops II will advance to compete for $15,000 in prizes. This will mark the final event in which MLG will feature Call of Duty: Black Ops II in competition; it will soon be replaced with the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts.
