The three teams will compete across Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Rocket League, and Street Fighter V. With an amazing prize pool and bagging rights on the table, all teams are keen to take out the top spot.
The second season of the series has been a hard battle for all teams so far. All six city based clubs battled to qualify, falling short. Perth Ground Zero and Melbourne Avant made semi-finals for CS:GO and Street Fighter V, while Brisbane Deceptors’ all draftee team sat at the top of the Rocket League ladder heading into the finals.
The CEO of Gfinity Esports Australia, Dominic Remond, spoke on the topic.
“We’re proud to see the mix of clubs in the finals. It really displays the hard work we’ve put in to develop the skills of each of these clubs” he said.
“It’s exciting to see a healthy mix of newcomers and veterans in our player base. Week to week, season to season, results are changing, making for fresh and entertaining viewing”.
