CLG have defeated their regional rivals eLevate with a score of 2-1 to take first place the CEVO-P Season 6 finals at the MLG.tv arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Four teams spent the last three days battling it out for a share of the $11,722 prize purse in CEVO's sixth season of their professional league.

With an upscaled finals location change at the MLG.tv arena and prize-pool increase from their fifth season, the Season 6 finals were touted as a chance to determine one of North America's best teams, sans the presence of Cloud9 and Liquid at the event.


hazed & co. wouldn't be CLG without a love of close and tense games

CLG, seen by many as the favourites, managed to battle their way into the grand finals in convincing fashion.

After dismantling up-and-coming squad Nihilum in the lower bracket finals, eLevate—who are attending the event with high-powered stand-ins Spencer "Hiko" Martin and Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham—rose to the challenge of locking horns with CLG once again in this tournament.

In the grand final, the first map was de_cache and saw eLevate grind out a win, taking the map into 30 rounds (16:14) despite a convincing opener of a T-side. All indications were that this series was going to be a close contest.

On the second map of de_dust2, the voraciously momentum-based CLG were able to close out the map at 16:12, although charismatic AWPer Peter "ptr" Gurney was seen having some struggles with the Big Green.


Skadoodle brought enhanced firepower to eLevate, but it wasn't enough to win a final 

The final map was de_nuke, which has been much maligned as of late and is currently enjoying its Indian summer as the map is slowly being replaced by de_train per Valve's original motivation.

As is characteristic of nuke, the series saw insanely CT-sided halves (14:1 each side) which led to an overtime. It was in overtime that Stephen "reltuC" Cutler and his men finally created a Terrorist-sided impetus and closed out the series, precluding the need to play a second best-of-three.

2. United States eLevate - $2,930
3. United States Nihilum - $1,758
4. United States Luminosity - $1,172 

The CEVO-P Season 6 LAN finals have now come to a close, but there is much to look forward to as a significantly buffed CEVO Season 7 promises to bring European teams and a $135,000 prize-pool back to the MLG.tv arena in July.

Well,prize pools in America have been quite low since a while,but starting with ESEA LAN finals in a few days,they have amped up the prize money. Even Next season of CEVO has a bigger prize pool.

Bet 720 on elevate, thank god people are idiots who change their bets based on performance of one match. Odds went from 15%->30%, luckily was smart enough to switch my bet :D
