The Chicago Force, reigning Season 1 winners, reestablished their position of dominance with a victory against Western division hopeful Seattle Siege. Following a monster regular season performance against Eastern division teams New York Fury, Boston Revolt, and Miami Menace, the Chicago Force were too much for the Seattle Siege to handle.
Chicago Force player Derek Ready said team growth through practice sessions and the regular season led Chicago to victory. “Throughout the season we’ve grown to understand each other’s gameplay style and help each other improve inside and outside of the league”, Derek said.
Seattle Siege team member Alan Peery questioned if the team was overconfident after early season victories divisional play. “Being so dominant in early divisional games was a mistake that we learned from. We started to feel invulnerable, and consequently didn’t focus hard enough on strategic choices before the game for the pick/ban phase”, Alan explained.
As a reward for their hard work and excellent gameplay, City Champs Season 2 winners Chicago Force retain the City Champs Trophy, and each team member receives a City Champs hoodie, Triumphant Ryze skin, and 5,800 Riot Points. As a consolation prize, the Seattle Siege team members will each receive 3,600 Riot Points.
