MLG Dallas First Day Recap for Black Ops
The first day of MLG Dallas is over and TheVanGogh has written a nice recap of the first day specifically for the Call of Duty: Black Ops matches on the Major League Gaming website.
TheVanGogh writes: The curtain has just fallen on what was quite a spectacle on Day 1 of the first ever Call of Duty: Black Ops tournament on the Pro Circuit. The new venue setup gave Black Ops fans their own private Main Stage to serenade their favorite players with oohs and aahs, and the competitors took full advantage of the newfound attention to showcase their skills. When the dust finally settled after the second round of the Winners Bracket, every single higher seed advanced; and although it would appear that a Cinderella story is not in the making at Dallas, there are still plenty of compelling storylines underway.
The results of the opening rounds were indeed very predictable, but entertaining nonetheless. The 2nd seeded Obey shined on the Main Stage in a Winners Bracket Round 4 match with a staggering 10-0 victory on Summit CTF, followed by a 477-82 rout of the 32nd seed Superrainbow Trout on Villa Domination. Third seeded vVv Motivation followed suit with an equally impressive victory over 30th seed Nerds with Swag. They rolled in Summit CTF 8-0, and put the cherry on top with a resolute 423-131 win in Domination on Villa.
Away from the spotlight of the Main Stage, top seeded Quantic Leverage cruised past the 32nd seed All or Nothing in a Winners Bracket Round 4 matchup. They won Game 1 on Summit CTF 4-0, and Game 2 on Villa Domination 379-174. Though the numbers may not be as gawdy as some of their adversaries, the victories were convincing nonetheless. Other notable teams, 9th seed Quantic NexTThreat and 12th seed EnVyUs, each took down their Winners 4 series in 2-0 fashion, and could be poised to threaten the top dogs.
The second day of MLG Dallas will kick off at 10am CT with Losers Bracket Round 6 action and will continue all day. If you want to watch the live stream, just click here.
