The fourth legendary cup has ended, and your winners are 3sUp. They win their third online tournament, and avenge a top-eight finish at HCS Orange County. Most Wanted takes second, falling to 3sUp in the grand finals four sets to two.

Although the first two podium teams are familiar, Contagious came back into the picture by making an incredible run into the top-three. This marks the first time they've made it to an open circuit podium since Open Cup #2.

Also SYA, a new team on the block, made it to the top-four in their very first weekend as a team, following their third place open cup finish. In only one weekend, they find themselves in the top-10 for open circuit points.

JusTus can finally avoid an Open Cup after winning their past two, as they make it into the top-eight, and unfortunately, teams that fought hard out of the open cup, like CADS, will have to go the long way back to the Legendary Cups.
