The Monster Gaming (mG) Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) team were poised to take a win from Bravado last night in the Call of Duty: MW3 DGL 2012, brought to you by Alienware, Megarom and Monster Energy, but a combination of bad luck and great execution from Bravado led to them being deprived of the victory.
It started right from the beginning as Brandon 'broKeN_' De Beer (mG captain) had a problem with his power plug, causing him to time out on Seatown. The first few rounds went to Bravado as the game began in a 4v5, but once the mG team were fully up and running they fought hard to bring things back.
They couldn't quite get there, but they ended Seatown off in a 13 – 10 score to Bravado, a significant comeback. However, the second map – Underground – had Bravado outstratting the team, says De Beer.

“As we planted they kept 'nading the bomb. We didn't know how to compensate or follow-up. So they outstratted us in the end,” he says.
The score ended 13 – 6 to Bravado, putting them once again at the top of the Premier log now with four wins and one draw in their five games played, as opposed to mG's four wins and one loss.
MG worked hard in preparing for last night's game so the time-out seems quite unjust. But De Beer is determined.
“We're not giving up. We're going to work harder now and we know what to expect. Now we're just focusing on our next game with impi,” he says.

Interestingly, mG's second team, KHAOS, is now sitting in third with only a rounds difference keeping them from the fourth spot, occupied by impi. They managed to beat 32B | Red last night in an intense match-up that opened up with two draws on Underground and Village and ended with an impi victory (13 – 7) on Resistance.
The loss has dropped 32B further down the logs, despite some solid performances from the team. But note that these logs are right now calculated on four games played, as opposed to mG MW3 and Bravado who have played five games, which also contributes to their position on the ladder right now. Furthermore, BR|Razerz and KHAOS appear not to have played their week 5 game, owing to an issue around BR Razerz' line-up.
