Immortals win iBP Fall Invitational
Immortals win the iBUYPOWER 2016 Fall Invitational, defeating OpTic 2-1 (16-13 on Train, 16-19 on Cache, and 16-12 on Dust2) and taking home $10,000 as a result.
The iBUYPOWER 2016 Fall Invitational, much like the Summer iteration of the tournament which Cloud9 won, offered up $16,000 for eight North American teams competing in an online, single elimination best-of-three bracket.
felps' Immortals edged out OpTic in a three map final
With the other side of the bracket seeing Wilton "zews" Prado's Immortals take down NRG in a 2-1 series, the grand final of the event kicked off on Train and, following a close 8-7 first half lead by the Immortals, the Brazilian team played the better defensive side and took the first map 16-13.
OpTic's map pick of Cache was up next and the Canadian-American-Spanish team took a late map lead only to see Immortals over take them and take match point; with William "RUSH" Wierzba and Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas in fine form however, OpTic forced overtime and took Cache 19-16 and brought the series to Dust2.
Dust2 saw yet another 8-7 first half (this time in favour of OpTic) make way to a more dynamic second half as Immortals' T-side proved too strong and the Brazilian team took the map 16-12 and thus won the iBUYPOWER 2016 Fall Invitational.
