SML18 Pro Championship & Pro Player Awards Results

July 1st, 2018 by

Last night, Grammaton Clerics took on One Hit Wonders in the Summer League 2018 Pro Championship, the AGLA’s first Championship since moving to the new website, and what a championship it was.  Many are calling it the most competitive we’ve seen yet in Halo 5 Grifball.

One Hit Wonders started out strong, taking game number one in 5-4 fashion.  While close in score, it seemed for the most part OHW had GC figured out.  So, in a very wise decision, the Clerics decided to make a big change for game two. They opted to have Ace, their runner for the season, start tanking instead.  In his place, DCLeak ran the ball.

I personally thought they might break out this strategy sometime in playoffs since they pulled the same move against Notorious late in the season.  It’s a smart strategy, and it definitely paid off.  OHW was not prepared for the increase in tanking power that Ace brought, and Grammaton ended up taking the series in two pretty dominating 5-2 victories.

You can watch the entire series here.  Start at 14:50 if you wish to skip the pregame interview and banter with Crusader.
