MLG X Games Final Results and Recap

This weekend, 8 of the world's best Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare teams descended upon the X Games. They were at the prestigious sporting events for one reason and one reason alone: to take home an X Games Gold Medal and a part of the hefty prize pool on offer. The MLG Pro League Season 2 playoffs were an intense affair with some exhiliarating matches between incredible lineups.

Let's take a look at who ended up victorious, and which rosters were unable to rise to the challenge.

OpTic Gaming's Road to Victory

OpTic Gaming 4 - 1 Team Kaliber

OpTic Gaming 4 - 0 Team eLevate

OpTic Gaming 4 - 1 FaZe Clan

OpTic Gaming 4 - 0 FaZe Clan

OpTic Gaming are now arguably uncontested as the world's best Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare team. This is their fourth victory in a row, and a part of two winning streaks the team has been on so far this season, only broken by a shocking performance at the Call of Duty Championships.

Their previous rivals in Denial eSports have seemingly slipped in the rankings, often struggling to even place in the top 3 as of late, and any other rosters that have offered them a challenge have crumbled and fallen after being defeated by the green wall at an event. Right now, FaZe Clan is certainly their most potent opposition, but even that is a stretch. Nothing is able to keep up with the pure slaying power and talent of OpTic.

Will they continue their streak until the end of the season, solidifying themselves as a Complexity/Evil Genuises tier dynasty in CoD? We'll soon see.
