OpTic came into this matchup after a reverse sweep over the Los Angeles Thieves to start today’s action at Major Two. Florida, on the other hand, lost to the Boston Breach earlier today to be sent to the losing group.
With both teams fighting for their tournament lives, this showdown began with an intense Gavutu Hardpoint. A messy ending at the first Hardpoint location resulted in both teams wildly trading kills back and forth. But eventually Florida came away with the 250-248 win in map one behind a 28-19 performance from Skyz.
Skyz was back at the top of the scoreboard in map two, Berlin Search and Destroy. The 22-year-old dropped 11 kills to help Florida secure a dominant 6-1 win and a 2-0 series advantage.
However, this was familiar territory for OpTic. Scump and his crew went into their statistically best game mode, Control, and faced a 2-0 deficit for the second time today. And once again, OpTic opened map three with an offensive round win in defensively favored mode. Texas played their game from there, taking Gavutu Control 3-1 to force a fourth map.
After that win on map three, many OpTic fans probably started getting hopeful about the potential of another reverse sweep. But Florida had other plans for the Green Wall. The Mutineers fought on Berlin Hardpoint, winning Map 4 250-206 to send OpTic home with a top-six finish from Major Two.
For Florida, this win guarantees them a spot on Championship Sunday along with Atlanta FaZe and Boston Breach. The fourth and final team remaining in the tournament will now be decided between the Los Angeles Guerrillas and Seattle Surge in the final game of the night.
