The final event of Season of the Gears Pro Circuit took place in San Diego on September 28-30, with the best teams from around the world competing for their share of the $250,000 prize pool.
The usual suspects were all in attendance and in fine form, with reigning open champions OpTic Gaming, their main competition Ghost Gaming and Echo Fox, plus top EU team Spacestation.
A stacked open bracket saw over 30 teams target a pool play spot too, and the four spots were secured by Nimbus, Krisis Gaming and both Fable rosters (US and LATAM).
The top teams didn’t slip up in pool play though, with OpTic, Ghost, Echo Fox and Spacestation all finishing top of their respective groups with 3-0 records.
Ghost were particularly impressive, coming into championship Sunday without losing a map, and despite OpTic having won the last event, Ghost certainly looked like the team to beat.
We will keep the final placements from the tournament updated throughout championship Sunday as more teams bow out of the tournament, until the San Diego champ is crowned.
