Optic Gaming wins Americas Minor

Despite looking like the clear favorite to win the event, Tempo Storm falls to Optic Gaming in the Grand finals of the ESL Cologne Americas Major 2-1. Optic was able to come back and win Train and Nuke after losing Tempo Storm’s pick, Dust II. Optic went 8-2 in map count in the tournament and only dropped three rounds in group play. They also went 4-1 against Tempo Storm including their earlier match up in the Winners Final.

Not all is lost for Tempo Storm though. Both of these teams have earned their spot at the ESL Cologne Offline Qualifiers in Katowice in June for a chance to qualify for the ESL Cologne Major in July.
