I imagine it will close out while I'm asleep, and clem said he wouldn't be on tomorrow to watch (or that he had s*** to do or something), so I took the liberty of stealing the topic from him.

I'm honestly not into this MLG thing. Not just this game, but MLG in general.

That said, after you guys and your talking, specifically, the Epsilon and Impact matches - I went out of my way to view them on YouTube.

It entertained me enough to watch these two teams till the last game. I give it that. :)

I have to say though, when going through Twitch, the amount of sour-talk between viewers during the stream is almost revolting. Seeing Karma and 'the other white guy with the hat' and their reactions during said games, I would have thought "uh-oh", but because of what I experienced in the live chat during the stream, those guys' reactions were like that of virgins - and they have money on the line?

Anyhow, I'll use you guys as my form of info if I feel I require more. If you say the final is worth a watch, I suppose if I have some time to kill, I'll watch.

I'm very entertained by MLG CoD, I just wish there were more maps available to play (Why not plaza? Its is pretty much identical on each side), and perhaps a new game mode (Dom, I mean they changed it into 2 rounds for a reason right? and I suppose you could always put a respawn delay in, maybe headquarters? I don't know), its just a little silly seeing the same maps, and only 3 modes.
Maybe in future the devs should make more balanced maps if they're going to do competitive.
But I am sure these have been left out for a reason, I just don't know what they are :p

But, much like MLG Dallas, I am very pleased to have watched this event, the players are top notch and the games have been phenomenal to watch.
