GCS FINAL Hype Article

Welcome to the final, the dream realisation, the living breathing live event final between two of the game's greatest ever players. Welcome to the Grand Championship Series FINAL.

This hallmark event for our community makes its way onto your screens Saturday the 1st of July at (9AM EST/ 1PM GMT/ 2pm BST / 3PM CEST).


Third Place Playoff
HelpingHans vs. VonIvan
(Bo5 is 1-1 currently).

It starts off with a third place decider between HelpingHans and VonIvan, for those that don't know their original playoff was curtailed due to health issues, and due to Von's great sportsmanship a fundraiser was setup to get him over to the UK to finish it off in style. Good things happen to people who act with honour, as proven here.

This fantastic confrontation between a clash of styles will take place as a live event best of three, but an overall best of five, with the current score going into the endgame being one each. These two rivals will go to war with one another to prove themselves on the live stage in-front of their legions of fans.


DevM vs. Luvnest

Following that we'll see an epic best-of-seven series between the SNF4, OCF, and Warpaint champion DevM and the 2x ESL Major winner Luvnest.

The first and the second seed of this tournament are quite simply the finest competitors that play Company of Heroes on the face of the planet. These two were always clear favourites, and them meeting in a final battle of: courage, endurance, wits, strength, and cunning - on a live stage is going to be the perfect climax to what has been an incredible tournament.

Will Lunvest be able to knock the reigning tournament champion DevM off his perch? Will he be able to enter DevM's yard, walk up to his house, and smash down the door?

Or will the Portuguese prodigy's precision play prove too much for the great strategic mind and icy competitive focus of Luvnest?

The only thing we know for sure is that there's anyone to beat DevM it's the German Giant - he has been in blistering form so far this tournament. As shown by his statistics here.. But then again DevM hasn't looked half bad either....

They're fighting for pride, money (£1,400 for the winner, £650 runner up), prestige, and Company of Heroes' first trophy!
