PiTER defeated ACES 3-1 (de_inferno 16-14, de_cache 16-5, de_overpass 16-4) to win MCS Open Season 2 Finals taking place in the Moscow Cyberstadium, for 250,000 RUB (~$4,400).

After a series of regional LAN qualifiers and the league itself, MCS Open Season 2 came to the $7,600 LAN Finals stage taking place in Moscow, Russia in Moscow Cyberstadium from April 3-5.

A total of 16 teams battled in a double elimination bracket, with PiTER, ACES and GGWP being one of the biggest names in the tournament.


wayLander's PiTER clinch a domestic victory

GGWP fell short to PiTER and WEPLAY- in the initial rounds of both brackets, but Jan "wayLander" Rahkonen's team managed to come all the way to the top of the tournament to fight it out in the best-of-five grand final.

Since ACES came from the upper bracket after defeating PiTER 2-1 in the upper semi-finals, they had a one-map lead, although PiTER made it a clean 3-0 even after a close initial map, de_inferno, which went to 30 rounds.

if you are about ggwp disband, then you can see it here vk.com/wall-67683080_3516 if you are about salaries, there are no info in open sources cuz salaries of pro players are always not announced anywhere, but i know cuz im a friend of members of both teams. dont think will be good to declare it here
