It has been awhile since we have covered Critical Ops, but the competitive scene has been heating up with numerous talented teams entering the scene. Hosted by our friends at mobileesports.org (which have recently announced a long term partnership with G-Fuel), the tournament kicked off last week with 64 teams competing in Round 1. For those who are unfamiliar with the tournament format, here’s a quick recap below:
- Starting March 5th
- 64 Teams Invited

Heading into Round 2, it will be interesting to see whether any of the indie teams will be able to upset the multi-eSports orgs that have been dominating the C-Ops competitive scene, including both Hammers Team (Redemption and Uprising), Phoenix Reign, and Gankstars. You can catch the Round 2 action live starting tomorrow (March 18th) at 10am PDT on Twitch, Mobcrush, or YouTube. And you haven’t laid your hands on C-Ops yet, then be sure to download it on the Apple App Store or Google Play!
