Over the weekend, Elevate Gears of War team competed at the San Diego Open among the worlds best squads!
Unfortuanlty the Elevate Gears team started the event off slow dropping the first series to Spacestation 0-2 and the second series to Reciprocity 0-2. bIt didn’t take long for the boys to rebound and beat Fable Latam 2-0 to pick up the pool play win. The first map at Impact was taken 7-4 with Elevate completing a comeback from an early 4-2 deficit. Map two at Reclaimed was more of a dominant performance with Elevate winning 6-2.
Elevate then went on to take a series win over FireNIce which guaranteed a fish in the Top 12 for the team. A Top 8 placing was then secured with a 2-1 win over Lucent. A close series loss to Nimbus cut the run for Top 6 short.
Below are the final rankings for the Top 12.
1st: Optic Gaming
2nd: Ghost Gaming
4th: Echo Fox
5th/6th: Nimbus & Reciprocity
7th/8th Elevate & Rise Nation
9th/12th: Optic Mexico, Lucent eSports, World Best Gaming, and Fable
This was the first event this Elevate Gears team has played together. Veterans such as Firearm made up the familiar faces whereas the majority of the team were newcomers. Nevertheless, Elevate Gears put on a strong performance in their debut event together. We’re excited for the future of Elevate Gears and all of our teams as they continue to compete at the highest level of esports.
