TCM outplays OpTic at EGL8


Watch live video from EGLtv on TwitchTV

The European Gaming League held the MW3 LAN finals yesterday in Manchester, where TCM Gaming competed against OpTic Gaming. It was expected for Optic to win this EGL, as they were the defending champions of the past two events. Optic had also never lost an MW3 LAN, which makes this tournament even sweeter for TCM. The American team had entered the finals with a 3-1 lead over the European team, TCM. However, TCM wasn’t scared of the MW3 titan and would finish 6-4 in this best of 11 series.

The EGL8 was the last major MW3 tournament of the year, which allowed TCM to leave a sour taste in the mouth of Optic on the long flight home. Black Ops 2 is on its way, so hopefully we’ll be able to see more competitive matches between European and NA teams in the upcoming tournaments. The EGL8 finals can be viewed above and here’s the bracket for the whole event.
