To see the complete bracket, go here. I should also mention that this was the roster’s last tournament under the CycloneGG banner. For me this one is tough because they were really the first CycloneGG roster I’ve gotten to work with and it was great watching their hard work pay off in these recent tournaments. The roster is now #5 in Europe and I’m sure that they will get picked up a large organization very soon. No matter what banner they play under in the future, I can assure that the CycloneGG organization will be supporting them. Gentlemen, thank you for your hard work. I hope that you continue to take the EU Overwatch scene by storm! #FearTheStorm
