Chiefs win CGPL Championship 2017

Chiefs have won the AOC CyberGamer Premier League Championship 2017 title over Tainted Minds in the grand final 3-1.

The $15,000 AUD (~$11,470) double-elimination event kicked off this weekend in Adelaide, Australia with six teams from the Oceanic region in attendance. The majority of the teams including Chiefs, Tainted Minds and Athletico had their debut with the newly announced rosters during the past week.

The underdogs Ground Zero turned out to be a surprise after catching Athletico and Legacy off guard in their three-map encounters, giving the two teams a run for their money. The other least-experienced team Masterminds was eliminated early, following 2-0 losses to Athletico and Legacy too.

Meanwhile, the two favourites Chiefs and Tainted Minds cruised past Legacy and Athletico in their respective semi-final match-ups, with Tyler "tucks" Reilly's squad outlasting Yaman "yam" Ergenekon's men in the upper bracket final.

Athletico's new recruit Nikhil "NikkeZ" Victor topped the scoreboard in the lower bracket final against the Legacy side, knocking out Kyran "dizzyLife" Crombie's crew in fourth place. However, Athletico met the end of their road with Tainted Minds blocking their paths once again with another 2-0 defeat.

Chiefs had a 1-0 advantage heading into the best-of-five grand final, but that did not stop their former teammate Joshua "INS" Potter's side crushing them on the second map (16-1 de_train) to tie up the series 1-all. The tournament MVP Matthew "Texta" O'Rourke went on to win his first domestic offline event after Chiefs reset themselves to claim the next two maps for a 3-1 series their way.

Chiefs are lowkey a really good team
2017-12-17 11:39
what's the current top5 in AU at the moment? RNG obvious 1st..
2017-12-17 11:41
It's pretty close. Grayhound, Chiefs, Tainted Minds, Kings and Athletico would be the next 5.
2017-12-17 11:49
After RNG though, Every team seems so equal to me... usually coz they keep swapping members among each other so often it's hard for them to actually establish themselves as 5... the teams that's done this the least often is grayhound and chiefs, and look at that, they are the next 2 after RNG...
2017-12-17 12:02
Yup, as of recent events, I would put Grayhound ahead of Chiefs because of their ZEN League win and ROG MASTERS 3rd-4th placing.
2017-12-17 12:06
chiefs can prove them at wca and the mdl global chalenge
2017-12-17 14:14
Probably goes 1. Renegades 2/3 Grayhounds and Chiefs (not sure which is above the other at the moment) 4 Tainted Mind 5 Kings

To an extent I would argue that the ANZ scene in a state of parity. All of the top 5 teams can beat each other on a given day.

Tainted Minds overtime will be a better team, Wish they would've replace Chuch for INS instead of Ap0c

Poor tournament from Zewsy but on average Zewsy is a top 2 player for TM
