Seeding is the definition of an inexact science. Entities such as the NCAA that specialize in it often don’t get it right. When you take into all the shifting variables of professional level Black Ops II, it’s hard to predict what might happen. Major League Gaming appears to have gotten Fariko Impact’s number one seed perfect. Its March 16 match against Team Storm was lopsided enough that it was uncomfortable to watch.

They plowed the competition 3-0, never being very seriously challenged.  So far they’ve haven’t lost a map, defeating EnvyUs 3-0 in their Friday, March matchup to open the championship bracket. Fariko Impact is playing Black Ops II at another level right now. As the gamecasters talked with team member Parasite, he said the realization that Impact has qualified for the Call of Duty Championship hasn’t completely sunk in. It was obviously a goal they wanted to achieve, but they’re not about to start looking ahead and get caught off guard.

“We just want to stay focused and take it one tournament at a time,” he said. They’re staying focused on the $20,000 first prize still up for grabs at the MLG Winter Championship in Dallas. Their run so far has guaranteed them at least a Top 6 finish. They will take on vVv Gaming in the Winners Bracket Semifinal. vVv Gaming is also qualified for Hollywood, defeating Friday’s comeback kids Team Curse 3-0 in convincing fashion. These two teams played in the online qualifier, and Fariko Impact took that one. Perhaps that will give vVv Gaming some sort of advantage.

GamerTell will be on hand all weekend to chronicle what’s becoming a historic run in Black Ops II.
