Mixin It Up With Mintz

He just interviewed Run Good Ambassador Ray Henson earlier on Friday and is know to be a football aficionado. Mintz says his voice sounds a lot like Pat Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and says the funniest bit on his show is when he does the Mahomes impression in fake interviews.

Call of Duty World League Update Wrap Up: Lions Fall in Round 7


Left to right: Sam Baldy, Trance, Yellow Bean Bag

The Atlas Lions returned for Day 2 of the Call of Duty World League in Fort Worth, TX. Their first opponent was Midnight Academy.

When the Lions arrived they had almost no time to prepare and fell behind 0-1 on Hardpoint.

The fought back to take Search and Destroy 6-5 after a clutch Grav Slam by Trance in a 1v2. They swept control and were on to round seven to face the Vodafone Giants.


Trance getting ready for a match at CWL Fort Worth

The Lions held the lead during the middle to late part of the Hardpoint map, but got wiped off the point and could not regain control -- losing 248-250.

They seemed unphased and took a quick 3-0 lead on Search and Destroy. However, the Giants managed to even things 3-3 before going on to win 3-6 and ending the Lions run just outside the money and the top 16. 

The Fort Worth event was this roster's first competition together, and there are certainly things to build on as we look forward to CWL London. The team was obviously gutted, but they have still managed to show support for the other Europeans teams still in the competition.

We're proud of the boys and look forward to seeing what Trance, Baldy, Hiiicksy, Bean Bag, and Divinity do next. Cheers to you boys.

Call of Duty World League Day 2

The Atlas Lions are set for Day 2 of the Call of Duty World League Open Bracket in Fort Worth, TX.

Friday they came out of the gate fast with a couple 2-0 victories over High Rollas  and Zero Chill Gaming.

Then they faced their toughest matchup against CycloneGG. The Lions took the first map, but lost the next two to fall to Cyclone 1-2 and into the losers bracket.

After a chat, the boys regrouped and beat their EU friends Socially Esports in the final match of the night. 

Today their first match is against another higher-seeded opponent. The Lions have won all their Hardpoint maps, which is the first map of each round. They have had less success in the Search and Destroy maps then they would like, but they've managed to keep a level head and should have a shot to defeat Midnight Academy and move on. 

They're currently just two wins outside the money. You can keep up with the team on the @RunGoodEvents twitter.
