Call of Duty Championship 2013 qualifiers are well on their way, as the European leg saw UK team Fariko.Dragons and Irish squad Epsilon emerge victorious. Both teams have earned a place in the Call of Duty Championship finals, taking place in Hollywood, California April 5-7.
The Electronic Sports League’s finals took place in Cologne, Germany over the weekend and saw Epsilon pipping Fariko.Dragons to first place in what was said to have been a tense showdown. They beat teams from Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Netherlands and Sweden to earn their place in the finals.
