Seems like the most relevant thread to put this in.
North Carolina, where I am in, is hosting a CoD Ghosts opening day blind tournament for people with a $5 entrance fee. The rules are simple. Xbox and PS3 players all group together and play Free For All on random maps and the top 2 players from each side (Xbox/PS3) get free copies of Ghost. When I say free, I really mean $5 due to the entrance fee, but it's a good amount considering.
Custom builds are out of the question and against the rules, so I've been training for a couple of days, using only classic builds, not custom builds and playing Free For All nonstop, ONLY free for all. No team game types, no hardcore on Black Ops 2. I've systematically placed first in every game except one where I placed in second place, so from a numerical standpoint I am rather confident, but the concept of fighting people who 'probably' don't suck as much as the people I curbstomp sort of rattles me.
So I've been training non-stop and I'm kind of nervous. Two days until the Ghosts tournament. I just hope I can AT LEAST get second place. If not, well... At least I get to Play Ghosts early.
