Impi’s PewPew Dominates the MW3 Champions Final



Last night’s big Champions Cup Final in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) DGL 2012 first leg playoffs, brought to you by Dell Alienware, Megarom and Monster Energy, ended up being quite an affair as impi took home the win with some significant scores over Vitriolic. Marco 'peWpeW' Erasmus from impi deserves special mention too, for reasons outlined below.

The final scores were 13 – 8 on Resistance and 12 – 2 on Village. These haven’t particularly been impi’s strongest maps, but Brandon 'broKeN_' De Beer, impi’s captain, says they had been practicing these maps extensively lately as they had a good idea that Vitriolic might prefer them.

Obviously that practice paid off. Vitriolic took a pretty good lead in the first map playing as Defence, but suddenly impi turned the tables and equalised the score and started taking the lead. The trend continued as they swapped sides and this seemed to have demotivated Vitriolic quite substantially.

Village was the real clincher. Impi’s strong SMG’s, most notably Erasmus, dominated the game, with Erasmus enjoying a 17 - 1 score at one point. Bjorn `n008’ Fish, Vitriolic captain, says that Erasmus and De Beer were a real pain for them at B bombsite.

“Quite honestly, I’m of the opinion that Erasmus is one of the best SMG’s in the country,” he says. “Look, ultimately they’re a good team. They out-stratted us and everything we were doing just failed. GG well played to them, really. It was a great game.”

The win has made for an interesting beginning to the season, bringing in some new names to the Do Gaming Premier Leagues. Vitriolic have always done well on the DGL Call of Duty 4 (CoD4) side, and of course so have Bravado. But impi’s win now shows that we’re going to have a really exciting Premier League this year - teams such as [xTc]MW3 and LOA in addition to impi have shown themselves to be strong contenders against the old CoD4 boys.

It’s a new game, a new league and a new season. This Guinness on my desk is a pre-emptive celebration to what I believe will be a very competitive and enjoyable year of solid gaming. Register for leg 2 here (all teams must register, registration is not automatic).
