The SYF GAMING PC CoD4 team are proud to announce that they have successfully made it through the 2012 NVIDIA CoD4 Autumn Championship qualifiers. The team has now secured a spot at the NVIDIA LAN Finals on the 29th of April to battle it out against the top 8 teams in Australia for a total prize pool of $12,000!
Captain Sam ‘sammyy’ Wayne expects the event to be an absolute blast, and is looking forward to flexing his sniping twitch muscle movements, as well as clicking heads with his AK47 skills. "The NVIDIA LAN 2012 is going to be absolutely massive, I am very much looking forward to competing alongside Australia's greats in Call of Duty 4. The boys in the team have progressed well over the course of the last few months of training, and we're all very pleased to be representing SYF at such a prestigious and grand event such as this. Australia doesn't really get many events of this caliber in CoD4, and its great to see the game still flourishing after all these years - AUSCOD is still clearly alive and well, and everyone attending's certainly going to be making the most of this rare occasion. Basically speaking, Gear Up For Battle is the equivalent of the CoD4 Australian Nationals; and it doesn't get any bigger than that!." Sammyy would like to thank our sponsors at STIPE Servers Australia, Bitdefender and Gamespeak for giving the team the opportunity to practice, perform and frag night in night out, without them, SYF Gaming wouldn't be where we are today!
About the 2012 Nvidia CoD4 Autumn Championships Australia:
It’s time to go into the trenches as the battle lines have been set and the battleground chosen. On the 28th and 29th of April the battle cries will go out in Melbourne as we go live with the 2012 Nvidia Autumn Championships in association with Gigabyte. Australia’s greatest Call of Duty Modern Warfare teams will take to the battlefield starting in March where they will participate in a gruelling online qualifying series for which at the pinnacle only 8 will remain standing. Those 8 teams will then head down to IBISQ LAN Centre in Hawthorn, Melbourne, where they will grind and battle their way through the ranks until only one team remains. Just one team will claim the title of Nvidia Autumn Champions for 2012 and this 5 man champion team of Australia’s best will take home $5000 of the over $12,000 prize pool for their commitment and dedication to showing they really are geared up for battle.
Not only will the pro players be on display, but we have also made room for the community, with Saturday hosting an open 8 team tournament for the community to apply for. They will battle it out in the Gigabyte Open Tournament where there will be $750 up for grabs. Teams will need get in fast though, as these open spots will go out the door faster than an AK-47 clip can be emptied as everyone scrambles to get into the action.
There will be thrills and spills for everyone in the community with prizes going out both during the live broadcasts throughout the championships, and also special prize giveaways over the weekend of the finals. There will be a number of free play computers available at the venue where gamers from across Australia can unleash the power of the latest Nvidia powered Gigabyte graphics cards, pushing their game to new heights on the Gigabyte Motherboards Who knows, you may also be a winner of a spot prize for the weekend – all for just sitting down at one of these machines and enjoying the awesome power of the Nvidia GeForce GTX560 graphics card thanks to Gigabyte, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards – you too could gear up with Nvidia and Gigabyte by the end of the biggest weekend in Call of Duty in 2012!
