Previously known as Team Dare, the guys are currently preparing hard for their appearance at MLG Dallas later this month where they will be battling for a chance to compete in the coveted Call of Duty Championship with its $1 million prize purse. These guys are some of the best up-and-coming professional Call of Duty players and we're thrilled to bring them into the fold as Team Curse.
To learn a little more about the guys, we spoke to them earlier this week to get some insight on their playing style and how they got started in professional gaming. The team is comprised of Ryan Bogucki, Alex Lopez, Bryan Zhelyazkov and Aaron Vetelino, learn more below:
Ryan 'Fatalize Bogucki (Twitter): 'I've been gaming on Call of Duty for about 5 years and have been considered a pro for 4 years. My role on the team is to be the slayer and hold spawns for us, as well as that of being the most vocal and giving hype when we need it. I have always been known for a very passive play style.'
Alex 'Rizma' Lopez (Twitter): 'I have been playing competitive Call of Duty since Black Ops 1, placing pro in that game guided me to where I am today. I have always enjoyed and been known as the objective type. I love putting in everything I've got to try and get the win and also get hype when it's needed.'
Bryan 'Apathy' Zhelyazkov (Twitter): 'I've been gaming for about 3 years on Call of Duty competitively. I was semi-pro in Modern Warfare 2, but Black Ops 1 was the game I first became pro on. My role on the team is to go to the objective whether it's Capture the Flag or Hardpoint. I play an aggressive style, trying to rack up as many kills possible to push the enemy away from the objectives.'
Aaron 'CMPLX' Vetelino (Twitter): 'The name is Aaron or better known as CMPLX. 18 years old. I've been playing Call of Duty competitively for about 4 years now, with some breaks here and there. My role on the team is to be an aggressive sub player that pulls flags and breaks hardpoints. Making big plays for my team so that we can come out victorious is my only concern.'
Team Curse is currently seeded in the championship bracket for MLG Dallas and are in round 7 of the qualifiers going to play for a top 4 seed next week. The team also placed top 8 in League Play in Black Ops 2 to qualify for the Call of Duty Championship and are hopeful that an invitation is in their future.
