The The competition had a first online phase where SAW, Movistar Riders, FTW Esports and Case Esports placed in the top four. In the first semi-final, it was Casemiro’s team that was victorious after beating FTW 2-1 (16-12, 14-16 and 16-9), while SAW was victorious over Movistar Riders (16-14, 5-16 and 16 -10).

That is why the Portuguese and Brazilians took center stage at the Valencian fair to proclaim the new champion of Spain. They did it on one of the main stages of the entrance pavilion, where the maximum expectation was to be two well-known clubs on the national stage.

While Case started well in Ancient defense, that first map went in maximum draw to switch sides 8-7 for SAW, who dominated in the second half and managed to win the final 16-11 to get ahead on the leaderboard, something that is usually key in best of three series.

Although there is no margin for error, Case brought out his best version in Overpass. Things didn’t start well for them as they lost the first three rounds, but they managed to go into the half with 10-5 in their favour. There was less history in the second half as Case closed the map 16-7 without too many complications.

Not looking to let this final escape, SAW attacked at a spectacular level in Nuke to go 12-3 in their favor on the defense.. Although Case chained 7 rounds in a row and dreamed of victory, the Portuguese managed to close 16-12 to take the win.

Although it was the sixth time he reached the ESL Masters finals, he lost in the first four to Movistar Riders and in April of this year he did it to FTW, taking his first title.. In addition to the cash prize —$6,000— they also qualified for the next edition of the ESL Pro League Conference, where Movistar Riders will also be present for, curiously enough, winning at DreamHack in the summer.
