Two Aussie teams selected for Call of Duty Championship finals

Teams in training mode as they get ready to head over to LA

Eight Australian players have been selected for the finals of the Call of Duty Black Ops II finals to be held in the US.

Following eight hours of gameplay against 32 other opponents, Team Immunity and Mindfreak eSports were declared the top A/NZ Call of Duty teams.

The two teams are currently in the final stages of preparation before they head off to LA to take on the world’s best competitors at the Hollywood Palladium Theatre on April 5-7.

Team Immunity team captain, Albert Nassif, said it was a “great feeling” to grab the local Call of Duty title.

“We can’t wait to go to Hollywood and play for the big bucks against the world’s best,” he said.

Activision Asia Pacific senior vice president, Philip Earl, said the tournament was a great way to give back to the loyal Call of Duty community.

“The response to the Call of Duty Championships is evidence of the franchise’s strong following down under,” he said.

“The successful launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops II last year showed the continued strength of the Call of Duty franchise locally.”

The two Australian teams will take part in the global finals for a share of the $1 million dollar prize pool.

A video montage put together by the ACL Pro team captures all the action from the evening and can be found below:

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
