Misfits managed to win round five with just over one minute of the game remaining against Fnatic to win the $50,000 DreamHack Winter Overwatch Championship.
Fnatic had previously lost to Misfits in the group stages of the tournament 2-1. That put Fnatic on the back foot for the finals, something which they weren’t able to overcome.
On the way to the finals, the two European teams had impressive and closely fought group stages with Misfits taking a 3-1 win over compLexity Gaming. Fnatic defeated Ninjas in Pyjamas in a close group stage which ended with the team taking a 3-2 victory and headed to the finals.
Fnatic took an early win on Temple of Anubis followed by Misfits tieing the scores with a win on Nepal. Misfits took the third game on Watchpoint: Gibraltar with Fnatic doing an excellent job on Hollywood by preventing the opposition from capturing the Goldshire Studios checkpoint while on defence. That took the finals to the fifth and final game.
Misfits held off Fnatic’s attack, preventing them from capturing the second checkpoint on Dorado. Misfits then took the game while on attack giving them the title in a 3-2 win.
Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
