CouRage and Hitch Provide a Breakdown of the First BOTG Series Charity Weekend on MW2

CWL commentator Jack 'CouRage' Dunlop and OpTic Gaming producer Davis 'Hitch' Edwards provide a recap of the first weekend of the Scuf Gaming BOTG Throwback Series on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Put together by the two personalities during the 'offseason' between Infinite Warfare and the release of CoD: WWII in early November, the BOTG Throwback Series is a set of three tournaments on past titles in the franchise. With a prize pool of over $6,000 between the three weekends, the main purpose of the event is to raise a goal of $20,000 from various donations for a cancer prevention charity. The entire event has been sponsored by Scuf Gaming, a gaming controller company that has become one of the most recognized brands throughout all of CoD esports for their custom controller designs, used by a large majority of professional and amateur players. As the first game in the rotation, the Modern Warfare 2 tournament saw 16 teams competing for a prize pool of $1,50, with the Executive Decisions squad of Austin 'Slasher' Liddicoat, Nick 'Happy' Suda, Donny 'Temp' Laroda, and Nick 'Classic' DiCostanzo taking home first place. Following the event, CouRage, and Hitch uploaded a video from the OpTic-Scuf house in Chicago, Illinois to break down the weekend and give their thoughts on the future installations to the Series. Along with their comments, they included a collection of the best highlights from a variety of matches played across different game modes, including notable fails by some of the most recognized names in the community. x The next competition will take place on Saturday, October 14th with Modern Warfare 3 for a prize pool of $1,500. x
