Cloud9 win the CyberPowerPC Summer 2016 Pro Series by defeating Liquid 2-0 (16-7 on Mirage and 16-7 on Dust2) in the grand final.
The CyberPowerPC Summer 2016 Pro Series was first announced in May and promised to be a $15,000 online North American region tournament with six teams receiving direct invites and two advancing through qualifiers in the month of June.
The two teams to make it to the finals of the two-day main event were widely considered the favourites, and Liquid quickly dispatched with OpTic (who were using Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz as a stand-in) in their semifinal whereas Cloud9 brushed aside Immortals.
Cloud9 secure another regional title
The first map of Mirage was Liquid's pick but the American-Danish team found themselves completely outplayed as the deadly duo of Jake "Stewie2K" Yip and Mike "shroud" Grzesiek powered the team through a 9-6 first half on the T-side and a dominant second half CT-side to close the first map out 16-7.
Cloud9's map pick of Dust2 finished with a similar scoreline as Timothy "autimatic" Ta's new team notched up a first half score of 11-4 and quickly managed to close out the map 16-7 to win the series 2-0.
