Sporting a team of Solurs, Praized, SuMuNs, MentaL, and Xplosive; Optic Gaming was looking strong from the very beginning. Opposing them was Ghost Gaming’s outfit which was comprised of Sleepytime, Rushman, Rezik, Speedy, and Identivez who were coming off the back of 2-1 victory against Spacestation.
The 11th Gears Open saw a dominant performance from Optic Gaming as they shut down Ghost Gaming’s advances at every turn.
