Finals of GIGABYTE league were held on the past weekend and in the end it was SGC who emerged victorious at on Saturday.
GIGABYTE league started off with an online phase with the top four teams qualifying for LAN finals held this past Saturday at Cyber Cafe Spalicek in Brno, Czech Republic.
The event started off with a best-of-one group stage where everyone played against everyone with the winner of the group advancing directly to the grand final, second and third placer playing a semi-final match to determine the other finals team and the last place finisher dropping down to the third place match.
myRevenge went 3-0 in the group stage and therefore qualified directly for the finals, eSuba advanced second with two wins and SGC recorded a single win over eEriness who placed last with a 0-3 record.
In the semi-final match SGC faced eSuba on de_inferno where they climbed up to a 15-13 lead before letting eSuba get back into the game and push the game into overtime. It seemed like they ran out of steam at that point though, as eSuba were unable to score another round and lost 0-4 in overtime.
eSuba beat eEriness easily 16-5 on de_train for third place and it was time for grand final. SGC won de_mirage 16-12 and myRevenge tied it up on de_inferno with the same score. It was all decided on de_train where myRevenge won the first half 9-6 and went up 13-8, only to lose eight consecutive rounds as SGC escaped with a 16-13 win.
