A lot can change in the final week of Halo Championship Series (HCS) Pro League. OpTic Gaming and Team EnVyUs (nV), despite sitting at the top of the standings, both want the first seed’s prize money. The rest of the league fights to climb the standings as three teams play for the last playoff spot. Evil Geniuses (EG) won’t make the playoffs regardless of who wins or loses, but a winning final week digs them out of relegation.
Allegiance vs. Enigma 6 | Allegiance wins 3-2
Down 1-2 in the series, Allegiance rallies on Coliseum – Capture the flag (CTF) after their first flag capture. PreDevoNatoR pushes the Enigma 6 (E6) cave, kills two and runs the flag untouched through bottom middle. Although E6 scores first, they can’t recover. Once Allegiance scores two in a row, Falcated clears an open lane on the sniper side of the map for the last capture.
Going into game five Eden – Slayer, Allegiance won a single series of their six game-fives throughout the Fall Season. Allegiance’s seventh game-five slows downs as teams fight at the furthest ends of the map. Suspector snipes from blue platform while Allegiance tries to bring the rocket launcher from the red base. Neither team risk a push, so players hunker down behind cover.
Down six, Allegiance hold red base with a full sniper rifle and a fresh rocket launcher. The power weapons don’t matter as E6 builds the lead again to 10. Forty second remain when Allegiance turns the deficit into a four-kill lead. E6 needs to push. Down to one with 10 seconds left, E6 can’t find the last kill. Allegiance destroys E6’s playoff chances, sending them down into possible relegation.
