The winning team, named Farkio Impact
, which, incidentally, sounds like a Japanese pro soccer club, and consists of Damon "Karma" Barlow, Adam "Killa" Sloss, Marcus "MiRx," and team captain Chris "Parasite" Duarte (pictured below) took home this year's Call of Duty Championship
, presented by Xbox. It took three days and the pwnage of 29 other professional four-player teams with names like EnVyUs
(sounds like a new boy band) who took second place and OpTic Gaming
(A company that makes anti-glare gaming glasses?) who took third.
Prize payouts will make you hate everything: Fariko Impact
took home $400,000, EnVyUs
took home $200,000, OpTic Gaming
took home $120,000. The rest of the million dollar purse was distributed equally to the remaining top eight teams.
So you see that kids? When your parents told you to study because you'll never make money playing videogames, they were lying.
