iG Vitality win WCA 2016

Posted by Michael Lim on

iG Vitality have won World Cyber Arena 2016 after they defeated Vici Gaming 3-2 in the Grand Finals on Friday. They took home approximately $340,000.

iG.V finished second in their group with a 3-1 record, only dropping a game to VG in the best-of-one round robin and progressed to the playoffs. In the semifinals, iG.V swept We Are Young 2-0 to advance to the Grand Finals.

On the other side of the bracket VG swept Prodota Gaming 2-0, however in Game 2 the game client crashed and tournament admins decided to award a default win to VG.

In the Grand Finals, iG.V won Game 1 on the back of Paparazi's fed Luna, and they took Game 2 after VG lost a big teamfight.

VG fought back in Games 3 and 4 with mikasa's Dragon Knight and END's Morphling in both games, but iG.V had the final say in Game 5, where Paparazi's Luna again tore down VG's base.
