It was last weekend that the North American League Championship Seri’s quarter finals finished up. The last match of the stage saw Counter Logic Gaming defeat Team EnVyUs in an absolute classic series. In the end it was 3-2 in terms of the series with each of these games being hard fought right until the last moment.
Nobody knew who was going to come out on top and this added to the intrigue of the entire event. This will go down in history as one of the best series ever seen in the game to date.
With so many ups and downs during the series the fans watching at home was no doubt on the edges of their seats as momentum swung back and forth. The game was balanced on a knife edge throughout and only the smallest of margins could separate them in the end.
It was a surprise in itself that it went down to the wire in the way that it did because most people familiar with the two teams fully expected Counter Logic Gaming to cruise through the series and into the semi-finals with little or no hassle. Team EnVyUs clearly had a point to prove to all of those people who were writing them off and they made sure that Counter Logic Gaming would not be able to get through without putting up a fight.
