1,001 Words: XGames Austin



I was asked to cover the event by MLG and I was excited to bring out my camera to this event. This is the second year that MLG COD was held at X Games in Austin, TX. With the top 8 teams fighting through the double elimination bracket we found that OpTic Gaming quickly pulled ahead in their matches with only 2 loses throughout the whole weekend.



These moments of dominance were exciting to witness as the team maintained a solid performance on stage and gave the fans what they wanted to see.


A disappointing finish to some, the teams were feeling the heat inside and outside the tents since Austin, TX hovered around a humid 90° F. In the end OpTic Gaming left victorious with the Gold Medal and FaZe came with a close Silver Medal.
