British Hurricane wins Overwatch Contenders Europe Season 1
The Overwatch Contenders Europe Season 1 Finals wrapped up in dramatic fashion last night, with British Hurricane defeating Team Gigantti at Alvernia Planet in Poland. The best-of-seven series went to the wire, before Hurricane—the London Spitfire Academy Team—emerged 4-3 winners to take home the $30,000 USD first-place prize.
The newly-crowned European champions kept their winning run alive in the Atlantic Showdown, a best-of-five showmatch celebrating the Europe-North America rivalry. British Hurricane overcame Fusion University—who had defeated Toronto Esports in the Contenders North America Season 1 Finals—to claim a 3-1 victory.
