School of Art and design student Michael Mangelli member of ECU Gaming Team to win National Invitational NVIDIA Call of Duty Black-Ops 2 Rivalries Competition in Santa Clara, California.
The ECU Gaming Team won the National Invitational NVIDIA Call of Duty Black-Ops 2 Rivalries Competition at the NVIDIA headquarters in Santa Clara, California. Team members Michael Mangelli (from the School of Art and Design ), Mathew Mangelli, Cliff Stubbs, Nate Kellum, and Stephan Loehr played with masterful teamwork using expert strategy and in-game communication to dominate the competition. The team was accompanied to the event by ECU Gaming Club Secretary, Rachel Pickens.
While not initially invited to the event, the Pirate Nation came together to send the ECU team to California by winning one of the two Wild Card slots via Facebook voting. The team won an all expenses paid trip to the Golden State to have a chance in the competition by playing against Oregon State University for the quarter-finals wild card slot. ECU beat OSU 4-1 in the best of seven match. Each game was played following Call of Duty Team Deathmatch rules, with each team competing to earn the 75 point cap within the ten minute time limit.
In other quarter-final rounds, the University of California team beat Stanford 4-0, USC beat UCLA 4-1, and NC State beat UNC 4-3. In the semi-finals, USC beat NC State. The action was intense in the first ECU-CAL match as ECU and CAL were tied at 74 points each for a nail biting ending, but ECU put them away to end the streak of the yet undefeated CAL team. ECU went on to shut out CAL 4-0 for a slot in the finals.
USC took early leads in three of the four final games, but ECU rallied in each game to shut out USC 4-0 to win the finals and become the first ever NVIDIA Call of Duty Black-Ops 2 Rivalries Grand Champion!
In addition to the Championship trophy and bragging rights, each team member wins a desktop PC designed by MainGear, powered by a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690, with HD monitor and accessories. The winning school receives a donation from NVIDIA of two GTX-powered desktop PCs with HD monitors and accessories for each round they won, plus two more for participating in the competition.
Congratulations to our Pirate Champions!
