Prophecy to Rack Up Strike Chain with Razer
Team Razer sponsors UK Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 team Prophecy
Carlsbad, Calif. – April 27, 2012 Razer, one of the world’s pioneering supporters of e-Sports and European Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 specialists, is excited to announce that Prophecy will be marching onto the battlefield with Razer after signing a coalition that will see the group of four sharpshooters become Team Razer’s first Call of Duty: MW3 console squad.
Prophecy, which was formed last year under Team Infused, has achieved numerous podium finishes in competitions across Europe, with one of its latest being a 3rd place finish at the European Gaming League 5 in April. Prophecy also holds the all-time record for the highest ever finish by a European team at an MLG event in the Call of Duty series.
The linchpin of the four-man squad is Tom “Gunshy” Jones, who has remained in the lineup since its inception, and is possibly the highest-achieved European console gamer to date. In addition, Prophecy recently secured the services of community star Ashley “Sowerz” Sowersby, who is renowned for his dualtages and game-play commentaries.
“It's a pleasure to be starting this new partnership with such an established brand in the e-Sports scene,” said Oliver “Acid” Sellors – Prophecy Team Manager. “Razer has always been one of my favourite brands, and it's been incredible to see them grow and support e-Sports consistently over the years. Prophecy wants to make sure that Razer becomes as well known in the console scene as it is in the PC scene, and I can only see big things for the future with this partnership.”
“Prophecy is not only good at its game, it’s a visionary team that’s ahead of its time,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, President of Razer USA. “They’ve got a long journey ahead of them, but Prophecy has already taken a giant step by deciding to break away from the pack. We’ll be right by their side supporting them, and the console gaming scene in the UK, every step of the way.”
Team Prophecy is a Professional Call of Duty squad on Xbox 360, which was formed officially in August 2011 under the original name of Infinity. Originally fronted by two of the most highly recognised players in the European Console scene, and also highly known in the United States for their success on the Call of Duty series, Prophecy has already built a strong name for itself as UK’s elite squad, and one of Europe’s finest. With a few changes to the lineup since formed, Prophecy now host's its strongest lineup to date.
