After an amazing and tense season 2, the Gfinity Elite Series Australia heads into its finals this weekend. With only two cities remaining in the competition, Gfinity Elite Series Australia Season 2 comes down to Melbourne vs. Sydney.
The rivalry between these two cities is legendary. It includes sports, nightlife, transport, livability, coffee and now, esports.
With only Sydney Chiefs, Sydney Roar and Melbourne ORDER remaining, the three teams will battle for a share of $225,000. This is the largest prize pool in the region.
Gfinity Australia Season 2 Finals
In the semi-finals, Perth Ground Zero and Melbourne AVANT fought valiantly but were knocked out of the competition. Brisbane Deceptors, a team made entirely of draftees, sat atop the Rocket League ladder going into the semi-finals.
Unfortunately for the Deceptors, the strength of Melbourne and Sydney was too strong and they were knocked out.
This weekend, Rocket League is an all Sydney affair, with Chiefs taking on the Roar. Melbourne ORDER will need wins in both CS: GO and Street Fighter V to walk away with the championship.
In Season One, Melbourne ORDER did win both CS: GO and Street Fighter V, so a repeat performance is certainly a possibility. Gfinity CEO Dominic Redmond said of the finals;
