Iron Games Columbus finished up yesterday with Evil Geniuses (EG) facing off against Counter Logic Gaming (CLG) in a game 5 Grand Finals. EG battled back from being sent to the losers bracket by CLG and pushed it to a game 5 situation. For EG to have won the tournament, they would have had to win 2 best of 5 series, as the tournament is double elimination.
Here is the Top 32 from the Tournament.
This is just the second tournament in the HCS with the first being an ESL Online tournament. Currently with a win at IG Columbus CLG is in first place with a total of 3,005 HCS points. These points will determine seedings for the Finals Tournament in March of 2015. More details to come on that one. Current standings are below.
1. Counter Logic Gaming – Heinz, OGRE2, Royal 2, Snakebite = 3,005
2. Evil Geniuses – Roy, Lunchbox, Snipedown, Pistola = 2,550
3. OpTic Halo – Flamesword, Ace, Assault, Aries = 1,475
4. Cloud9 – FearItSelf, Hysteria, Ninja, Victory X = 925
5. Believe The Hype – aPG, Lxthul, Maniac, Legit = 810
6. Str8 Rippin – Tsquared, Naded, Str8 Sick, Prototype = 560
7. Fatal Ambition – Klein, RC, Siege, SpartanTheDog = 390
8. Noble Reality Check – SUDDOTH1, SUDDOTH2, ContrA, PreDevoNatoR = 350
Confused on how points are awarded? So was I, but after some digging I found some info on how points will be given out at HCS championship sanctioned tournaments.
Stay tuned as the next online tournaments will be Sunday December 21st, Sunday December 28th, and another LAN tournament in January with UGC St. Louis.
