HCS Pro League NA Summer Qualifier Recap

Eight HCS Pro League hopefuls met in Burbank, California, on May 8th at the ESL Studios for a chance to compete in Halo’s first official online pro league. Favorites Optic Gaming and Team Envyus were joined by Allegiance, Soul Red, Team Liquid, Enigma 6, Denial and Renegades.

The teams would be separated into two groups of four. Those groups would then play a double elimination bracket where the top two teams would qualify for the NA HCS Pro League Summer Split and the bottom two would have to try again in another qualifier.

Group A
Optic Gaming clutch up in the last map against Renegades while Denial was swept Enigma 6 to set up a rematch from PAX just a few weeks earlier. E6 got their revenge over Optic and qualify for the pro league. Renegades took down Denial and finally over came Optic to claim their league spot.

Group B
Allegiance took down newly formed Soul Red and Team Envyus defeated Team Liquid to set up the winners bracket finals. Allegiance would take the win and claim their spot in the league. Liquid defeated Soul Red to challenge Envyus again in the loser bracket finals but Envyus once again had their way with Liquid.

HCS Pro League

The bottom four teams will still have one more chance to qualify. Open Qualifiers next week on May 14th-15th will determine the top teams that will fight for the final two league spots in the Last Chance Qualifier on May 21st-22nd. The regular season will begin in early June and last through July. The top teams will then compete at the Season Finals to be crowned the best in North America.
