NA HCS Pro League Season Results
Yesterday saw the last North American HCS Pro League games played. After a grueling seven weeks of play, we finally get to find out who will advance to the playoffs for their chance at the biggest cut of the $225,000 prize pool.
The results are as follows:
- Counter Logic Gaming (13-1)
- Enigma6 Group (11-3)
- Team EnVyUs (9-5)
- Renegades (7-7)
- Evil Geniuses (6-8)
- Team Allegiance (6-8)
- Team Liquid (2-12)
- OpTic Gaming (2-12)
It was no surprise for the majority of HCS fans that Counter Logic Gaming came out on top. Entering the Pro League as the fan favorites due to their dominating victory during the Halo World Championship, congratulations to CLG and good luck in the playoffs.
The OT her teams entering the playoffs include Enigma6 Group, Team EnVyUs and Renegades. The playoffs will take the form of a season finals event played live in Los Angeles, California, during KCON 2015. KCON is a convention centered around Korean culture, most notably Korean pop music. The event takes place July 30th and 31st at L.A. Live. Not much is known about the format, but be sure to stay tuned to GAMURS to find out.
Preserving their spots in the HCS for next season are Evil Geniuses and Team Allegiance. EG, who were once upon a time considered to be the best team of this era of Halo, has fallen to a point where they can barely maintain a spot in the league. Starting the season in the top four, they slowly fell down to where they are today. Hopefully the offseason can bring them good fortune and revitalize the team.
Team Allegiance, on the other hand, faced a rocky season of ups-and-downs. Remaining in the same position of sixth almost the entire season, they retained the ability to be remarkably inconsistent. 3-0ing Enigma6 one week and then losing to OpTic the next, no one was quite sure what was going on. Luckily, they were able to remain in the HCS. Here’s hoping to a better future for them.
Finally, the two teams who might not have a future in the league are OpTic Gaming and Team Liquid. Both only won two series during the entire seven weeks, so things are not looking too good for them. Their situation worsens as they will have to attend the season finals, not to play for glory, but to face off against the two top challenger teams in order to avoid relegation. They will be playing against Denial Esports and Team eLevate, two monsterous rosters.
Be sure to tune in to see who will stay alive and who will be left behind.
