Toronto Ultra Academy EU have won Stage 3 of the European Challengers Elite season after winning back-to-back series against AYM Esports.
The team showed some real character in order to come back from losing in the winners finals against AYM.
The winner’s final was a reverse sweep for AYM Esports as they managed to bounce back from 2-0 down to win.
Interestingly, the mapset for the first best of five of the series was identical to the one the two teams played out last night (May 24).
The first of the two series was rampant for Team Singularity’s outfit. They swept the first best of five in emphatic fashion.
The Berlin SnD for map two was a romp. Ivan “Yako” Rodriguez struggled to get anything going on the map, dropping a donut in the 0-6 defeat.
Ben “Beans” McMellon put in an absolute shift in the first series, dropping nearly 2000 more damage than anybody else in the series.
He continued that form into the early stages of the second best of five.
The ever-present Steve “Vortex” Allan managed to be the consistent and top quality player than many have seen him be for years now.
His presence on the map managed to keep the heads on the Toronto Ultra Academy team to get them to the Elite win.
The second series was slightly tighter but it didn’t stop Ultra Academy seeing the series out in four maps. They managed to take a crazy Berlin hardpoint in map four in order to secure the victory.
Toronto Ultra Academy EU take home $20,000 for winning the Elite, along with 15,000 pro points.
