HCS Open Circuit Legendary Cup #6 Recap

The sixth Legendary Cup rolled on despite UGC St. Louis happening and a few teams dropping out. But who rose to the top?

Several teams had to forfeit matches due to UGC St. Louis, with one team having a special condition of being in the process of moving (blame Daddy and his Daycare on that one).

Nevertheless, the Pro Gaming League, which will soon change its name to Millennial Esports, rolled out their sixth Legendary Cup, with teams still competing for pro points.

With several teams away, a new star in GameTyrant rose, as they not only took the Open Cup prize, but also the Legendary Cup. This skyrocketed them from nothing to the top-six of the Open Circuit.

Furthermore, Contagious felt hard justice as they were stripped of their pro points, and had to fight to get back into the top-10.

Here's what went down today online:
