My experience with TSU and EUCGL

My experience with TSU and EUCGL

TSU has been running for as long as I can remember, however I’m writing from when I joined TSU and entered EUCGL.

I joined TSU back in 2013 and back then they had a mode similar to league play but I can’t remember exactly what it was, anyways back then it was a team called Thol a team I joined in ghosts but little did I know members of TSU was also in it and as we played together fighting to win, it got heated with players and some chose to stay and some chose to leave, and that’s when TSU got back together (as I know it) I got approached by The co owner of TSU and got asked to join their team and leave Thol and without hesitation I did, because each scrim we had Against TSU they would slaughter us, so I made the jump and I haven’t regretted it since, from there we gathered players and got TSU fully running in MLG European league/ladder and every night we would play GB’s 3/4 times and when it came to the weekends it wouldn’t stop, we aren’t the best of teams but we put up a fight we won some lost some but we got back up and fought, we had a duo team and a 4v4 team on MLG than run like a dream. 

Throughout every call of duty we played competitive we trained, we won, we lost, arguments back and forth but WE stuck as a team through thick and think we played together, as time got on we had a good team to play with we had an amazing player DWARF he made us laugh in games and he would keep our spirit going! He’s the one who non stop harass us which made us laugh and get on and our games with him were brilliant however he was fighting a battle of his own. Cystic fibrosis! Which is deadly as some of you will know, it came to us as a shocker when we all found out he passed away! And as a tribute through our call of duty games, Ghost_TSU always has his clan tag as his user name and he will not take it off nor change it! He has also got a tattoo if his user name on this ark as a reminder that he’s always with us, Dwarf will remain in all our hearts and our controllers and we know he’s probably calling us worse than shit (sorry for the langue) but he made us stronger! 

As time gone by we called it… TSU took a long break in the competitive side we still played on the occasion but we all had our personal lives to live. 

Only up until a fair few weeks ago I joined the league to join FSG to see what sort of competition they were up against, they told me to join the EUCGL which I’ve never heard about, which I checked the website had a good look around and I was impressed, so scrim after scrim after scrim getting ready for season 2 I got my old players to join from TSU, and day by day went where we were scrimming against some good teams within the league, as time got on there were some complications! However FSG are a good set of lads and season 2 they have a good team to get going and make a run for their money! 

We all parted way….. again 2 players joined Wow and I joined illusive and again as time went by we fought and scrimmed and I was getting back into things and loved it! Both teams illusive and WOW (which are now 5HM) are a good set of lads they have a laugh they support each other they play doesn’t matter if they win or loose they carry on! 

At this point TSU had a good old chat about getting the team back together! So we did! And for season 2 we are as ready as every with some fresh players to TSU we welcome you all! And all we ask of them is loyalty and commitment as the same 5 players In TSU have been together for years and each one of us have been approached to join better teams but we stick together! As we are all loyal to the team! 

So looking forward for the games and may the best team win!

Our first season as a team – By Kieran1119

Laminar Flow - Our First exposure to competitive cod

Coming into this season and our first season as a team only being formed in the middle of December we were still a pretty new team especially with a few of us being completely new to competitive call of duty. Our ambition ahead of the season was to put in a good performance and ideally to win the league if possible. We also picked up a good player in Xilations who had just become a free agent which only boosted us as a team and made us stronger. Ultimately as the season progressed we started to play better as a team and improve and ended up winning the league.

Coming into the new season competition is closer than before so we know that it wont be easy to retain our title but that is our intention and we look forward to playing against the new teams.

We are also (some of us who are older enough) going to CWL London to play in what would be my first lan experience in a mix with some of the guys from our other team over at Laminar Rising which will be fun to see how far we can go. We are looking to see how far we can progress as a team and improve to achieve as much as possible.

Bring on season 2 and see you all there.

My first experience of EUCGL and 5HM – By Marnil04

My first experience of EUCGL and 5HM

So i have this friend of mine who i’ve been playing cod with on a not serious level, asking me if i wanted to go serious about my gaming on COD. I was like, why? i’m not good enough for it? i’m a noob, but he kept asking me ” come on martin, lets try it out, if u dont like it then quit.” and yes lads, you’re thinking right, that’s were my journey began. 

So i joined this team called WoW who played in a league called EUCGL that i’ve never heard about. My first thought was what the hell is this? must be some kind of a joke this league thing, that’s also one of my most dummest thought ever. This team was a competetive team, they were playing in a serious league, it might not have been like MLG CWL but.. these lads I was playing with and against knew how to fucking handle that saug and how to run those hardpoints. 

So from being my own, doing my own shit on public games thinking im fucking scump on cocaine to realize that im actually a complete rookie on cod. I started to adapt my role in this team that welcomed me with open arms, giving me the opportonity to grow as a player and as a person in this competetive cod world. 

I started off playing a few scrims with WoW and the first thing people say before the game starts is ” Sorry new guys, we gunna loose this ” and everyone was like ” yeah we gunna loose this”, my first reaction was, YES ofc we’re going to loose lads if u going into a match saying we are going to loose, simple math. Guess what, they were right, I was right. We lost the game, but I ended up top of the scoreboard cause I didnt go into the game thinking I was going to loose. 

This kept on going for too many scrims until I said that we cant go into a game thinking we going to loose, go into a game thinking we going to win instead. I dont know if it was me or if these lads been messing with me but we started to do better from us on the scrims from that point. We had the upportonity to get a few good recruits who had a lot of routine from playing comp cod, they made there impression in the team also. We actually stared to win a few scrims, and more people started to take this serious and wanted us to become a top team for the coming season.

The season 2 is coming up on us soon and it feels like we’re back to square one again after the dispand of WoW, but my gut says that its going to be a brilliant season for 5HM if we give 100% for it, but in this moment we need to create a fun atmospheric clan that can see the difference between being 100% competetive and focused when its league or scrims and when its normal days we can have fun talking and playing with eachother.

Our journey starts today, we are going to train harder then ever before, set up new tactic so when the season starts we are ready to fight with the top teams. 

Everyone thinks that we’re bots, well lads i have a message for you, these bots are going to chock you all this season, so you better watch your corners this season. 5HM are hungry.
