Rise Nation grinds out Championship Sunday to win CWL Seattle
It's a marathon not a sprint. Rise Nation started out the day in the losers bracket and climbed their way all the way up from top 20 to the Grand Finals defeating Team Envy, Luminosity, Ghost Gaming, Echo Fox, EUnited, and dominating Evil Geniuses in the Grand Finals: 6-1 out of two best of five series (3-1 Series 1, 3-0 Series 2).
Grand Finals Recap
In the first series Evil Geniuses were coming into the grand finals hot off of their play from the winners bracket with a total of 9 map wins with only one loss to Echo Fox. In the Winner's Finals Evil Geniuses swept EUnited with ease. Evil Geniuses took Map 1 of Hardpoint (King of the Hill) on Sainte Marie du Mont to pick up where they left off that included a five kill streak by Silly to end the match.
Series 2 is where Evil Geniuses ran out of gas and Rise Nation took advantage to keep their foot on the pedal. Rise won game 1 of Hardpoint 250 - 165 , game 2 of S&D 6-1, and finally Game 3 in dominating fashion 7-0 of CTF to take the Call of Duty World League Seattle title.
