The Melbourne Esports Open went off over the weekend. As well as a cavalcade of things to do for all interested in video gaming and esports, there was also some super-serious competition happening.
Saturday saw the League of Legends Oceanic Pro League title play-off, with Mammoth ending up taking out this year’s crown. In under two hours they laid waste to The Chiefs Esports Club to take out the finals series in a 3-0 clean sweep.
The action continued on Sunday, with two massive finals.
First up, the Overwatch Contenders Australian final at the Rod Laver Arena, which saw seasoned Overwatch vets ORDER smash the series 4-0, leaving their opposition in Mindfreak wondering just what they need to do to conquer them.
The action was relentless at Margaret Court Arena, where The Six Masters final – featuring Australia’s best Rainbow Six Siege players – saw Orgless and Fnatic facing off. Both teams had their victories during several hours of play, and the final map ended up being the decider. Fnatic just managed to edge out Orgless to take the title.
Well done to all the victors! We look forward to seeing you guys – as well as new challengers – at the Melbourne Esports Open in 2020.
