Gears Pro Circuit San Diego Open - RECAP

What a blast this weekend was. The Gears Pro Circuit San Diego Open delivered so much of what makes Gears Esports so great - amazing plays, surprise exits, underdogs making their mark and lots of drama.

Optic Gaming secured another Championship for their cabinet with an unbeaten run at the San Diego Open this weekend. Their Finals rivals Ghost Gaming were arguably the biggest threat to the Optic squad all weekend based on their mighty performance against many teams, a roaring return to form after a lower-than-expected finish in New Orleans.

Ultimately, Optic Gaming had the upper hand significantly going into the final after beating Ghost Gaming earlier in the tournament - with Ghost Gaming needing to win two best-of-three series to take home the trophy. Optic Gaming shut down the hopes of a second Season 2 Championship for Ghost with a 2-0 victory to crown themselves San Diego Champions.


Nimbus continues to be an exciting emerging up-and-comer story in the Esports scene. Born in the fire of Gamebattles, the Nimbus Squad is comprised of 5 players who, until recently, were relatively unknown in the scene. That changed quickly with a strong 12th place at their first major LAN event in NOLA - a huge achievement in an of itself.

In San Diego though, Nimbus really stepped it up, finishing in a hugely respectable 6th place after putting up a strong fight against experienced vets Echo Fox.
