Illuminar win ESL Polish Championship Autumn Finals
Illuminar have come out on top of ESL Polish Championship Autumn Finals, securing a spot in the IEM Katowice Europe closed qualifier in the process.
Four teams took part in the $39,000 tournament, with ARCY and Wisla Krakow making it through to the finals after topping the regular season, while Illuminar and AGO came from the playoffs featuring third to sixth-placed sides.
In the semi-finals of the offline event taking place in Katowice, AGO defeated Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas's team, who recently lost funding from Codewise Unicorns, in a tightly-contested series, while Paweł "innocent" Mocek & co. passed Wisla Krakow over three maps as well.
The grand final began on Vertigo, with Illuminar securing a series lead despite AGO pulling off a massive comeback in the opening half from a 0-7 deficit. A straightforward win on Train saw Damian "Furlan" Kislowski's squad equalize, before a flawless offense gave Paweł "reatz" Jańczak's team a comfortable Mirage decider.
