Japanese professional CoD team, Rush Gaming, is looking to prove they can hang with North American teams in a scrimmage against eUnited.
Rush Gaming, who has won the Japanese CoD championship in back to back years, have proven they are among the best in their home region.
James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks announced via Twitter that the scrim would take place at 4:30 P.M. EST., just before the June 3rd MLG GameBattles Pro League Challenge.
We’re gonna scrim RG tomorrow at 4 est to get some practice in before the pro league challenge. We want CoD to prosper in all regions; so I’m excited for this! Wish we could stream but Columbus setups don’t have the capability. @eUnitedgg https://t.co/o8z9IqcIxJ— eU Clayster (@Clayster) June 2, 2018
For eUnited the matchup marks an excellent opportunity for the team to prepare for the tournament later that day.
Fans interested in spectating the matchup were initially disappointed as Clayster had announced that there would be no way to stream the game.
Luckily, Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler stepped up to the plate and volunteered to stream out the international bout.
I’ll stream it lol— Anthony Wheeler (@NAMELESS) June 3, 2018
The collaboration between both organizations could be vital to the growth of CoD esports in all regions, and that has players on both teams looking forward to the scrim.
You can check out the stream on NAMELESS’ Twitch; again, the scrim is scheduled for June 3rd at 4:30 P.M. EST.
[UPDATE] eUnited decided to stream the scrim and the match can be found here.
