Mexico City has quickly established itself as a major stop on the Gears Esports tour. The Gears Pro Circuit Mexico City Open featured sold out crowds, a huge player pool and major upsets as teams battled for the $200,000 prize pool.
OpTic Gaming continued to prove it is arguably the most dominant force in esports today by taking home another trophy after defeating Ghost Gaming in the Grand Final. This weekend also featured the return of Daniel “Identivez” Santillana, the top ranked Mexican player, who helped Ghost Gaming get to the Grand Finals for the first time.
The surprise team of the event was Fable Gaming – the top EU team – with its improbable run to the top four punctuated with a major upset over Echo Fox. Ultimately, it was the Mexican teams who really had the venue buzzing, especially local favorites Ronin and World Best Gaming with top 12 placings that had the fans chanting throughout their matches.
