iBUYPOWER have won CEVO Professional Season 5 Finals with two best-of-three series, 2-0 and 2-1, over Cloud9 in the grand final.
Cloud9 looked dominant in the upper bracket, defeating iBUYPOWER easily 2-0 on Friday while Braxton “swag” Pierce‘s team struggled, even against NetcodeGuides.
After Denial was knocked out in fourth place, iBUYPOWER defeated NetcodeGuides to get another shot at taking down Kory “semphis” Friesen‘s Cloud9 in the grand final.
iBUYPOWER quickly dominated the first series, winning 16-13 on de_cache and 16-9 on de_dust2, to get to the second series and a chance to win the event.
Second series saw C9 lose de_train 14-16, barely escape with a 16-14 win on de_dust2, but ultimately fell short in overtime on de_cache 17-19.
