As is tradition with the conclusion of a Call of Duty season, players flock to older games that they enjoy in a bid to create content, win some money, and relax during the off-season. 

The return to these titles has prompted throwback tournaments, with former OpTic Gaming member Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards usually in the middle of proceedings. The content creator took things up a notch this time around though, linking up with Movember and the EsportsStadium in Arlington, Texas to run a charity event on a massive different scale.

ActivisionCall of Duty: Black Ops 2 was the throwback of choice this time around.

Running through September 28-29, eight teams competed for a portion of the $10,000 prize pool, as well as putting on a show to help raise some funds for Movember

When things got down to business on “Championship Sunday,” only two teams remained, with 6 out of 7 – a team made up of Crimsix, Karma, ACHES, and Clayster – and a name referencing their CoD Champs dominance over the years, facing off against the RodSquad of TCM, Twizz, Nelson, and Tsunami.

After falling to the eGirl Slayers in round one, the former Complexity members had to battle through a losers bracket run just to get into the Grand Finals. On the other side of things, the RodSquad cruised through the winner’s bracket to gain a series advantage in the final match-up, with 6 out of 7 needing a bracket reset.

The former Complexity stars managed to do so, though, taking the first series in a convincing 3-0, before jumping into a 2-0 lead in the second set of matches.

Even though they appeared to have one hand on the trophy, they let it slip through their fingers as RodSquad completed the reverse sweep with a 6-3 win on Raid Search and Destroy – bagging themselves the tournament victory and the biggest chunk of the $10,000 prize pool.

Aside from that, though, the generosity of the CoD Community was on show, as Hitch revealed that they had raised over $25,000 by the end of the day to benefit the Movember cause.
