The tournament was full of amazing matches, such as the back and forth winners bracket finals between possibly the best Gears of Wars teams in the world right now: Enemy and Team EnVyUs.

The two teams have fought each other on multiple main stages and this one was just as great as the others. The first four maps were traded and it was Enemy who forced the decisive game five. EnVyUs was up 3-1 in the last map, but it was Enemy who would make the comeback, stealing the series 3-2. 

After falling into the lower bracket finals against Dream Team, EnVyUs seemed to struggle. dT took down their opponents rather convincingly, knocking out arguably the tournament's favourites 3-1.

The stage was set and dT looked to complete their cinderella story. Enemy shut them down early, with a quick 4-0 on War Machine. This set the tone for the series and even though the second map looked close, Enemy took the series 3-0.

Final Placings:

Congratulations to Enemy on winning the MLG Gears of War North American Open and bagging themselves $20,000.
