As of today it is our pleasure to introduce the Infinity Forge Academy! The Academy is a group of Critical Ops players who wish to work with, train, and compete against the Infinity Forge competitive team. The Academy team will be put through the same training and development system that the competitive team will be beginning this week. They'll also be participating in smaller tournaments to hone their skills, and test themselves. All in all, we're incredibly excited to roll this project out and look forward to seeing the results!
Our primary goal isn't just to have a competitive Critical Ops team and compete in the largest and most prestigous Critical Ops tournaments, but to help the Critical Ops competitive scene grow as a whole. We have seen many issues arise as the competitive scene continues to expand, from hacking, to player indecision and team hopping, to even team disbandments. All of which are unhealthy for the competitive scene, and neuter its long term growth. In the end, we hope to help foster the growth of the competitive scene by developing players for future teams. We believe we can prepare the players we accept to become more well-rounded, potentially competitive players through the experience they gain with us. It is our hope that in the future we see many former Academy members playing for top-tier competitive organizations, and blazing the trail for the competitive scene of Critical Ops.
