Halo Iron Gaming Tournament Live Stream: First HCS LAN Event Continues In Columbus, Evil Geniuses Impress On Day One
HCS' first in-person event yesterday, featuring more top pro matchups than usual on a tournament's first day due to the lack of established seeding. The randomized online tournament left some pro teams knocking one another out early, leading to low seeds for some of the best teams.
That meant more good action on Friday for fans, so there's not too much to complain about. There are some very good matchups on the books today as the best teams being to meet up in new best-of-five Winners Bracket rounds. Some talented rosters were knocked into the Losers Bracket, making both portions of the tournament worth keeping an eye on.
Evil Geniuses, as expected, were very impressive on day one. Despite a handful of close games (they also dropped one), they took a series against Cloud 9 to end the day off well. They're going up against Str8 today, and top teams CLG and Optic Gaming face off first this morning. Check out the stream below, which will run through the day and conclude tomorrow.
