A much anticipated grand final has concluded at the Paris Major between North America and Europe saw the Europeans come out on top, with G2 Esports taking down Evil Geniuses in a 3-0.
It brought an end to a week long tournament featuring the best sixteen teams from around the globe, competing for a $350,000 prize pool.
G2 had not dropped a map on their run to the grand final, and came in as many people's favorites, but there was no writing off Evil Geniuses.
It was a rematch of the the Rainbow Six Invitational in 2018, where PENTA, the current G2 roster, defeated Evil Geniuses, in a heartbreaking defeat for the North Americans.
G2 took the first map of the grand final, a best of five, winning 6-2 after EG took the early rounds.
The Europeans started stronger in the second map also, in equally convincing fashion with another 6-2, and the map was beginning to look increasingly one sided.
After going down 0-4 in map three, Evil Geniuses called a tactical pause to discuss what was going wrong in this potential final map if they couldn't bounce back.
