Gears of War Columbus Day 3 Recap
The final day of Gears of War Columbus came to a close, and despite a heavy fight from Team EnVyUs, OpTic Gaming is your champion.
Here's a full recap of what went down today:
Losers Round Two:
#13 Vanquish 2 - 1 #15 Fully Spaced
Losers Round Three:
#9 Epsilon Esports 2 - 0 #13 Vanquish
#2 Revenge 2 - 0 #17 Vitality
#12 Splyce 2 - 1 #6 VexX Gaming
#4 eUnited 2 - 1 #8 Enigma6
Losers Round Four:
#2 Revenge 2 - 0 #9 Epsilon
#4 eUnited 2 - 0 #12 Splyce
#7 BOT Empire 2 - 1 #2 Revenge
#4 eUnited 2 - 0 #5 Eanix
#7 BOT Empire 2 - 0 #4 eUnited
#1 OpTic Gaming 2 - 0 #3 Team EnVyUs
#3 Team EnVyUs 2 - 1 #7 BOT Empire
#2 Team EnVyUs 2 - 0 #1 OpTic Gaming
#1 OpTic Gaming 2 - 0 #2 Team EnVyUs
Besides the ability of Team EnVyUs to force a second series against OpTic, the other impressive team was BOT Empire, who pulled off upsets over Team Revenge and eUnited, and did so with only two weeks of practice and limited time between matches.
Overall, OpTic Gaming cruised their way to the winners finals, and while they did hit a roadblock with nV resetting the bracket, they still proved they were the best team in Gears of War (for now) by getting a jump on a team that narrowly escaped the losers bracket finals.
Who would you say was the MVP of the tournament for OpTic?
