Team Twins Claim Victory in Inaugural eUnited Community Throwdown

By: Zachary Lange

In the inaugural eUnited Call of Duty Community Throwdown, hosted by Battlefy, the duo of “Pug Gang” emerged victorious from the 192 entries into the tournament.

As a result of the victory, Daniel “Neg” T. and Daniel “RestraL” M. both received a brand new ASTRO Gaming A40 Headset and MixAmp TR, while the second place team “Tuna Fish” won a pair of ASTRO Scout Backpacks. Third place team “Runners” took home a pair of eUnited x ULT t-shirts.

After the tournament, both pairs in the finals were able to join forces with a pair of pros from the eUnited COD roster for a best-of-three Search and Destroy matchup. Pug Gang selected Team Vets, who consisted of Justin “SiLLy” Fargo and James “Clayster” Eubanks while Tuna Fish were paired up with Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson and Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson to form Team Twins. In a tightly contested battle, the twins took home the squad bragging rights with a 2-1 victory.

“I mean, we were expecting to win cause we didn’t get picked,” Arcitys said. “They (Pug Gang) lit the fire and we had to shut them down. Unfortunately for Justin and Clay they were in the way of the W.”

While the winners of the tournament may have found themselves on the losing end of the four versus four with the pros, both young players gained invaluable experience being alongside some of the top Call of Duty professionals in the scene.

“It was pretty fun getting to play with the players who get far in the major events,” RestraL said. “And it was especially cool to see them encourage the plays I was making as smart plays. That made me feel like a lot better of a player.”

Not only was it memorable for the tournament winners, but it also served as a bonding time for eUnited’s COD pros with the community.

“It was awesome playing with some of the eUnited fans,” SiLLy said. “I would love to do it again sometime in the upcoming title. I’m almost positive everyone would have a little more fun on WWII.”

“It was a good time playing cod with some fans, you always want to interact with your community and fans,” Clayster said. “Being able to run some games was fun for me and I hope fun for them too.”

Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled to be released November 3rd, and fans and pros alike are ready for the upcoming season of competition. One of the ways to climb up the ladder to the top? Practice. When the next Community Throwdown happens on WWII, SiLLy predicts the level of competition to be higher than before.

“My best advice for the upcoming game is just to grind as much as possible from the start,” SiLLy said. “Getting a head start on everyone is key for early success.”

“It seems everyone had fun, and that’s the key for tournaments like this,” Clayster said.
