Onslaught’s professional Gears of War team traveled to Burbank, California to compete in the January 10th, 2016 Season 1 Finals with the other three qualifying teams of EnvyUs, Denial, and Vexx Gaming. As the 4th seed in the event, Onslaught was paired up against heavyweight Denial in it’s first best-of-five match and was a heavy underdog to the top-ranked former Swarm squad.
After a rousing first map win on Mansion, a back-and-forth series ultimately saw a map 5 win by Denial for a close 3-2 victory, ending our bid to claim the Season 1 crown. In the consolation game against Vexx, another series of very close games and an excellent comeback by Vexx ended with a 3-1 series win by Vexx and a Top-4 finish to the inaugural season of the ESL Pro League.
With Season 2 just around the corner, Onslaught wasted no time in further solidifying their roster and going all in for a Season 2 World Championship. The team said goodbye to long-time teammate TwistedShot, replacing him with the very talented Demo previously from Pro League participant Annex.
