When it comes to European Call of Duty eSports scene, Epsilon eSports has been in the best form by far in the last couple of months. After a long period of problems with the results, Epsilon eSports has finally found their good form which led them to claim the titles at CWL Sheffield Open and another tournament before that one.
With this kind of form, the future looks bright for Epsilon as they will be heading into the CWL Global Pro League Stage Two in just one month when they will be facing Team EnVyUs, Cloud9, and OpTic Gaming in the Group Green of the competition.
Display of Dominance
When Epsilon eSports lifted the trophy at the CWL Sheffield Open on Sunday, it was a moment of reflection for the fans as well as for the players. All their hard work has finally paid off, but it was not an easy road for them as they had to fight very hard in several matches.
During the group stage of the competition, Epsilon eSports did not have any significant problems, and they managed to finish the group stage with more than impressive record of nine won maps while they were defeated in only one map. With that record, there were no doubts that Epsilon eSports became the biggest favorite for winning the title.
In their first series of the playoffs, Epsilon eSports faced Elevate, and it was one of the most interesting matches of the entire tournament. Elevate did not allow Epsilon to close out the series and they eventually took the match into the fifth map, but they could not do much in the deciding map. Eventually, Epsilon won the match and advanced to the semi-finals of the winner’s bracket.
In that match they faced Red Reserve, and even though many expected a lot more from Red Reserve, they were not able to do much as Epsilon eSports won the semi-final match with the score 3-1. With that win, they advanced to the winner’s bracket finals where they had to face Fnatic. The final match proved to be almost the same for Epsilon like their semi-final match as they took control of the game after the end of the second map and they maintained it until the end when they defeated Fnatic with the score 3-1.
The Grand Final
After winning against Fnatic, Epsilon eSports advanced to the grand final where they awaited for the name of the opponent that they will be playing against for the title. After losing to Epsilon in the semi-finals of the winner’s bracket, Red Reserve had to go through the lower bracket in order to get the opportunity to fight for the title.
They started the competition in the lower bracket against Millenium in the first round, and they managed to sweep their way to the next round. In the next round, they faced Supremacy that had a 2-0 advantage in that match. It seemed that Supremacy would be facing Epsilon for the title, but Red Reserve managed to pull the reverse sweep in the game that led them to fight for the title.
However, in the grand final, Red Reserve did not have any chances of even winning a single map as Epsilon eSports maintained the control of the match from the very start to the very end. They swept the floor with Red Reserve in the grand final match of the CWL Sheffield Open.
