16 teams from around the world gathered in Dallas, Texas for Season 7 of the ESL Pro League, with $250,000 going to the winner. First place was on the line this weekend as Astralis faced off against Team Liquid in the Grand Final.

North American giants Liquid had a dominating run to the Grand Final, sweeping mousesports in the Quarters and Na’Vi in the Semis. On the other side of the bracket, FaZe took out SK in the Quarters to set up EU rivalry match with Astralis in the Semis. The rivalry was much ado about nothing, however, as Astralis breezed past FaZe to reach the Grand Finals with a 2-0 sweep.

In the battle of NA vs EU, it was Astralis who kept their hot streak going with a 16-1 destruction of Liquid to open the Grand Final. Liquid battled back to lose a closer second map by a score of 14-16, before getting on the board with a 16-14 victory.

Astralis was quick to end the NA hopes and closed the series out with a 16-12 map win to take the $250,000 prize, defeating Liquid 3-1 in the Grand Final.
