Against all projections OpTic Gaming comes home with the ELEAGUE Season 2 crown.
OpTic went into the final against Astralis being the absolute underdogs. The North American squad knew that and used that freedom to take down the heavily favored team from EU. Things didn’t immediately go their way however. The first set of rounds went Astralis’ way 16-9, but OpTic came back incredibly strong taking the next two sets 16-6 and 16-11.
This a huge win for OpTic and the second tournament in a row they’ve won. Here’s what the win meant to the underdogs:
Our win today shows that the skill gap between North American Counter-Strike and the rest of the world is virtually gone. Anybody can beat anybody – Peter “stanislay” Jarguz
