You may take away Ego Rangers' placement, but you'll never take away their ability.

The fifth legendary cup has ended, and while Daddy & The Daycare beat Contagious in the winners finals, a full bracket reset and a 4-0 sweep made Contagious your tournament champions.

Dillon "Randa" Randa was the Daddy for the Daycare, who had to create the side after Ego Rangers was disbanded by the PGL.

Besides this talented team reclaiming their standings placement right down to the point total, and Contagious performing a sweep on the bracket reset, the most shocking result of the night was made by PNDA.

This side came back on to the open circuit scene with a new team and kicked #1 seed 3sUp out of the tournament. 3sUp won the last legendary cup, but were just over the relegation line in this one. The enterprise still has a substantial points lead for the open circuit, but it may be threatened as we get closer to HCS Las Vegas.
