OPL 2015 Split 1 Winners!
Ladies and Gentlemen I give you Australia’s League of Legends 2015 OPL Season winners … CHIEFS! Yes The Chiefs eSports Club have had a nigh perfect season, completely dominating the entire series going 13-1. That’s damn amazing considering how good teams like Dire Wolves (number 2 on the ladder) were performing.
It seemed that no one had an answer for Chiefs perfect Meta, meticulous execution and flawless synergy. From here we see them as wildcard entries across the globe against the world’s best in LoL.
The question will remain though, just how good they’ll go on the global scene as the past would dictate that Australian’s don’t do terribly well as a rule of thumb. That being said, we’ve clearly seen a vast improvement in 2014 and if any team is going to give the Internationals hell, it’s going to be Chiefs!
We at Player2 wish them the very best and hope they make their mark internationally, Australia is behind you 100%!
