OpTic Gaming took home gold in the first Gears 4 esports event of the season.
6 NA teams, 1 Australian team and 1 Latin American team fought it out for the Gears 4 Invitational title as the much anticipated pro circuit truly got underway.
OpTic Gaming faced fierce rivals EnVyUs in the Grand Final, having already beaten their opponents in the Winner Bracket Final.
EnVyUs recovered from their Winner Bracket Final loss with a victory over third place finishers Revenge, who recently made the switch from eLevate, winning 2-1 to set up a rematch against OpTic Gaming in the final.
Again though, OpTic Gaming triumphed to win the title. OpTic Gaming were coming into the competition on the back of victory in the MLG North American Open only weeks ago and make it two majors on the bounce now, as well as becoming the first Gears 4 Champions.
