The final was a rematch of the awesome QuakeCon climax two weeks ago, though the two new maps, Aerowalk and Battleforged, were excluded from the map pool for this event.
Unlike the happenings in Dallas, Texas, however, Cypher swept Cooller in three maps straight to secure the first place prize of ~$1,670. Aside from dm13 the other two games were relatively close score wise, though Cypher's constant clever play proved the defining factor in assuring him the win.
SK Gaming's Shane 'rapha' Hendrixson was also in attendance at the tournament, and much like his two elite rivals he progressed through the group stages with ease. But meeting up with Cooller in the upper bracket semis saw the American fall into the lower bracket after Cooller won three close maps. Then, after Cypher took down Cooller, the two met again in the lower bracket final. Cooller won ztn 12-6 followed by dm13 7-4 to eliminate the IEM gamescom runner up.
