An American eSports team of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 players from Complexity Gaming took top honors at Gfinity's G2 tournament last weekend.
The "coL.COD" team walked away from G2, which was held Oct. 12-13 at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden, with $30,000.
Gfinity was founded earlier this year "by gamers and with the backing of successful investors" and held its first tournament in July.
"Gfinity is a new company and to have seen this much support both at the event and from viewers at home has been overwhelming," said Paul Kent, COO of the eSports organization, which was founded earlier this year. "We aim to put the U.K. on the eSports [map], and G2 has helped to turn that corner by offering professional gamers the chance to play in a high-caliber tournament amongst their peers for the greatest prize pot ever on offer in the U.K. We are already thinking about how to top this event and are looking forward to the continued partnership with [Major League Gaming] which has made what was a small U.K. team suddenly have a global reach. So to all our fans we're looking forward to seeing you all again very soon."
Gfinity is working with MLG to "provide a cohesive online and in-person competition schedule which will provide regular competition for all players and regular content for all the fans," according to a press release from the organization.
G2's winner was also among the eight teams to qualify for the Call of Duty Championships early this year.
