HCS New Orleans Day 2 Recap

HCS New Orleans Day 2 Recap

When the dust settled on Group Play on Saturday, Reciprocity, Tox Gaming, Renegades, and Splyce had won their respective groups. Tox Gaming and Splyce ended the night by winning their semi-final matches to setup an epic HaloWC rematch in tomorrow’s Winners Bracket Final.  

It would prove to be a day of fantastic finishes and head-turning results on multiple fronts. To the delight of the proud and passionate LATAM Halo community, Berserker Esports took down Lucid in an epic Game 5 fashion to claim a historic Top 8 finish for the Mexico-based squad. 

And now, Championship Sunday awaits. We’ll see you right back here in the morning at 11am CT/12pm ET.
