OpTic Gaming member Davis “Hitch” Edwards is partnering with UMG events to host a $5,000 throwback tournament on Call of Duty: Ghosts, featuring some historic rosters.
The event will be live streamed on the official UMG Twitch channel, as well as the participating players themselves on their personal streams.
In total, there are eight teams, all of which were official teams during the Ghosts season: Envy, Complex, Nation, Kaliber, eGirl Slayers, Business, Wanted and OG.
Some changes have had to be made due to scheduling issues,, with TJHaLy stepping in for Clayster on the OG roster, Blazt for Apathy on Business, and NAMELESS is to be replaced on Envy.
You can watch the event below on the official stream, starting at 12pm PT / 3pm EST / 8pm BST.
