Toronto Ultra Academy EU has won the 10th Challengers Cup of the season in the region.

The winning roster: 

Joey “Gismo” Owen
Ben “Beans” McMellon
Liam “Furiious” Osborne
Steve “Vortex” Allan

The tournament was the team’s first bracket as four, with London Royal Ravens sub Gismo coming into the team last week.

They had an impressive showing the first week of Challengers Elite Season 3 in midweek, with the team finishing their batch of matches with a 3-1 record.

Building on those results, the squad didn’t have any real trouble throughout the entire Cup bracket.

They breezed through to the Grand Finals and then swept the Minnesota Rokkr Academy team 3-0 to take home the $2,500 prize pool and 1,200 pro points.

It ended up being a weekend with a few shocks. dos tontos y medio (ErikBooM and co.) placed just T8 after an impressive run-up to the tournament.

Their swap with the Rokkr Academy which saw JurNii join their roster and Sukry join the Minnesota team doesn’t look like it’s paid out in their favour.

It’s also still not happening for community favourite Gabe “Aroma” Hamshaw. His team alongside Chaaxter, Mythix and Keza finished one match shy of making it into Sunday’s play.

Team WaR could possibly have expected a better result too but they managed to fall to eventual winners Ultra Academy in the upper bracket semis.

They then lost to the other Academy team, Rokkr for T4. A really rough run of matchups for them.
