Mad Catz’ Western Wolves Halo team — which has been at the top of the genre for a number of years — is hyped about the forthcoming European Gaming League 8 tournament. Considered the culmination of the tournament scene for Halo: Reach, identical twins Will and Alex Buck think this is the tournament where they can regain the coveted European #1 slot — just in time for the launch of Halo 4 and the perfect platform upon which to demonstrate our incredible TRITTON Halo 4 headsets.
Recently reformed with a lineup that’s stronger than ever, the Wolves bring two new players which require no introduction to anyone remotely familiar with competitive Halo gaming: Fragby and JC.
Fragby, a legendary name around the scene, makes his return after lurking in the shadows for a while. Previously part of SK Gaming, the veteran will bring all his experience into the lineup, making him an invaluable member of the pack. JC, formerly a member of the Wolves, is back to wear our colors once again, this time hoping to further extend his stay.
After the success of EGL 7 earlier this year, Mad Catz will be returning as the headline sponsor for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Championship, the largest COD LAN tournament in the world. The Mad Catz Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Championship will feature some of the best teams from around the globe competing for over £10,000 in prize money.
In addition, Mad Catz will be sponsoring the tournament for the recently released FIFA 13, where players will have the chance to compete using the professional gamer’s choice: the MLG Pro Circuit Controller. We will have special EGL 8 promotions throughout the weekend, so keep your eyes and ears open for details on an exclusive promo code!
Making its long awaited return to the event is the Fighting Games Area, which will feature Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2, and King of Fighters XIII! Check out the fighting-game action all weekend long thanks to the stream provided by WorstGiefEVER at Armshouse.tv.
