This weekend, Infused Halo were competing at the HCS Fall Finals at Dreamhack Denver. Coming into the tournament with the top seed for Europe, the boys in red were focused on getting a good result. Let's take a look at how they got on.
The team kicked off their campaign against Team Cryptik. After a thrilling series of Halo full of unbelievable plays, the boys in red took a 3-1 victory and moved on to face North American powerhouse, Team EnVyUs. Another close series between two very talented sides but EnVyUs managed to take the victory 3-1 to send the team into the loser's bracket.
The first match of the loser's bracket would be against fellow European side, Vexed. The team bounced back from the earlier loss and swept aside Vexed 3-0 to move into the top eight. Another victory would move the team into the top six, the highest placement for a European team on American soil!
To book their place in the top six, the boys in red faced Halo icons, Str8 Rippin. The squad played some phenomenal Halo to take a 2-0 lead in the series. Str8 managed to take a map to close the gap but the boys in red closed out the series on Truth Slayer to win 3-1 and to secure a top six placement.
Next up would be Team Liquid for a top four place. The series was tied at 1-1 heading into Eden Strongholds, where Liquid responded to take a 2-1 lead. The opposition had the momentum in game four and managed to take the victory and the series. Infused finish the HCS Fall Finals with a top six finsh.
GGWP to all the teams we played. Congratulations to the team for a fantastic placement. Let's keep it up for Worlds!
