DPC Regional Finals Results: CN, EEU and NA
After the exciting first weekend of the DPC Regional Finals, the second one flew by just as quickly, with some pretty thrilling matches and some expected stomps. For those of you who missed out, here are the results of the second weekend.
No surprise here as PSG.LGD proved that they were still in top form. Maintaining their win streak from the regular season, they remained in the upper bracket all the way until the grand final, where they had a rematch against Royal Never Give Up - the team they had sent down to the lower bracket the previous day. PSG.LGD proved that they are still a cut above the rest of their region and are looking good in their journey towards the next TI.
- 1st: PSG.LGD, $50,000, 250 DPC Points
- 2nd: Royal Never Give Up, $25,000, 130 DPC Points
- 3rd: Team Aster, $15,000
- 4th: EHOME, $10,000
Despite winning The International, Team Spirit showed that they are capable of bleeding with a first round drop to the lower bracket after losing to HellRaisers. That seemed to be the wake-up call they needed and Team Spirit spent the next two days dominating their opponents without dropping a single game. The grand final match was expected to be a close one against Virtus.pro but it ended up being a one-sided stomp instead. Team Spirit still in TI-form confirmed.
- 1st: Team Spirit, $50,000, 250 DPC Points
- 2nd: Virtus.pro, $25,000, 130 DPC Points
- 3rd: HellRaisers, $15,000
- 4th: PuckChamp, $10,000
This was the most interesting regional final to follow due to how close most of the teams were to each other and the biggest surprise being TSM FTX coming out on top for the first time. It was also the only region to have the grand finals going all the way to five games. TSM FTX, who had finished the DPC season in 2nd place (their first non-third placement in the circuit) have been playing with renewed energy and confidence ever since the boys got signed (they were previously Team Undying). Watching their games, you can tell how well they're playing as a squad right now, and they look like the best team in NA. We can't wait to catch them at GAMERS GALAXY.
- 1st: TSM FTX, $50,000, 250 DPC Points
- 2nd: Evil Geniuses, $25,000, 130 DPC Points
- 3rd: Quincy Crew, $15,000
- 4th: 4 Zoomers, $10,000
