It all happened today at PAX East when Season 1 of the Halo Championship Series came to a close with one of the closest matches in competitive Halo history.
Noble Black faced off against Counter Logic Gaming for a spot in the Grand Finals, and what a show it turned out to be. Having reached an equal footing after both teams won two games each, the best-of-5 match was to be settled in a final sudden-death game – this, and the two games that followed, ended in a tie with increasingly excited crowds and reactions across social media platforms. The final game was decided in CLG’s final-minute push where they gained 4 clear kills, seeing them take the win against Noble Black.
With Season 1 now over, we now have the final standings for this Season:
1st – Evil Geniuses
2nd – Counter Logic Gaming
3rd – Noble Black
4th – Cloud9
5th – Denial eSports
6th – Str8 Rippin
7th – eLevate
8th – OpTic Halo
