Today was the grand finals between OpTic Gaming and VGJ.Thunder in the SLI StarLadder ImbaTV Season 5.
OpTic Gaming seized the SLI StarLadder ImbaTV Season 5 Grand Finals in a decisive victory against VGJ.Thunder by taking the series 3-1.
It’s been slow and steady for Optic Gaming over the course of the Pro Circuit but they’ve finally had their breakthrough at the Starladder Invitational Season 5 in Kiev, Ukraine. It may not have been a star-studded tournament, in fact there was only one top 8 DPC ranked team in attendance, but they would be Optic’s opponents in the WB Final of Group A and the Grand Finals. OpTic Gaming beat them twice.
The 2-0 in the group stage was clean but in the Grand Finals when Optic fell behind 0-1, they responded in style by taking the series 3-1. The Starladder S5 Minor was the first time Optic placed high enough to earn DPC Points, and them taking 1st place nets them 450 points, enough to earn them 13th place just behind TNC.
