A dramatic reverse sweep saw OpTic Gaming take the MLG Anaheim 2016 title after a resilient eLevate were finally beaten 3-2 in a memorable grand final. The challengers to the Green Wall's crown came at them fast after a 3-1 win over Rise Nation in the Loser Bracket final. Needing to win two best of 5's in order to take the title, it was always going to be an uphill battle. After going 2-0, OpTic shifted into a new gear as they grinded out an overtime win on Uplink in order to get back into the game. From then on it was business as usual for OpTic as they took complete control of the Fringe CTF before winning the entire tournament with a 6-3 win on SnD. Coming into this event as the hot favourites, OpTic have proved once again that you can't count them out even when they're down. As for eLevate, they'll leave disappointed but can take confidence in a performance that tested the record breaking line up of Crimsix and co to their limits.
