More surprises were to come however. The fairytale story of the WCG LoL matches was that of Gameburg Team . Although they are not a usual high placing team they managed to knockout the Korean entrant EDG and then cause a massive upset when they defeated top North American team Counter Logic Gaming 2-0.
Joining them in the final was CDE . CDE are a mix team of players from some of the best teams from across the USA. Their road to the final saw them defeat fellow USA participants Team Dignitas and Jerome_NEGGRET
The final between GBT and CDE would decide who would walk away with the $25,000 top prize.
The final proved to be one step too far for the Gameburg with CDE taking home the Gold Medal for the USA.
The VODs of the games can be found over on own3d.tv.
