EU Relegation and Season Final Results
After a grueling season, the European HCS Pro League has finally come to a conclusion. This weekend hosted both the relegation event to determine who would be playing in next season’s pro league, as well as the finals.
First off, the relegation portion of the event was an exciting opportunity to see new blood enter the pro league. Featuring the two best Open Circuit teams, We Know the Secret and NTSC, as well as the two bottom teams from this season’s Pro League, Dinosaurs and PuLse Gaming.
After playing through a double elimination bracket, both Dinosaurs and PuLse Gaming will be returning to the Pro League! After being knocked down in the first round, Dinosaurs fought their way back by beating both NTSC and We Know the Secret. PuLse had an easier way through, winning both of their series in the winner's bracket. Congrats to both teams and good luck to them in the next season!
Following the relegation tournament was the first ever EU HCS Pro League Season Finals. The top four teams of the European HCS were invited to duke it out at ESL’s UK Studio and settle once and for all which one of them is the best. The results can be found below:
1st - FAB eSports (Kimbo, Mose, Respectful, TuFoxy)
2nd - X-Men (Jimbo, Snipedrone, Chalkie, Ramirez)
3rd - VIBE (Septiq, Riotz, Lunny, Snakey)
4th - Team Infused (Bathford, Phlux, WarLord, Doodle)
The breakdown for the distribution of the prize pool is currently not known, but the total prize pool for the event was $67,000.
Congragations to FAB eSports for not only going through the regular season undefeated as U4X eSports, but also for winning the championship. It would be interesting to see how such a team would fare against the teams in North America, hopefully we’ll get a chance to see them compete against each other before next year’s Halo World Championship.
The European HCS will back next season with another pro league. The details for such league are yet to be released, but remember to follow us here at Gamurs to hear about them first!
