Take a behind the scenes look at how OpTic Gaming prepared for MLG with Prophecy from the UK.
"It was the first ever of its kind. No company has ever really hosted a tournament to prepare their athletes better for the actual major tournaments coming up. So it was a really good experience,” said Nadeshot about the pre-LAN.
“We got to practice in a live environment and see how things felt competing at the tournament, so that was a really big positive for us. It gave us an edge over our competition, and although we didn't place first, we placed top three and I think that LAN helped."
