Rogue defeats eUnited in Overwatch TakeOver 2 final

They've found their form again.

  • Text: Sam Bishop

Esports organisation Rogue has won the Overwatch TakeOver 2 tournament this past weekend, with the French roster finding form again after a series of disappointing results in recent months.

In the semi finals of the competition Rogue faced Cloud9, registering a 2-0 win, before facing eUnited in the winner's final and beating them 3-0. Cloud9 were demoted to the loser's bracket, then, defeating Ninjas in Pyjamas and Movistar Riders to face eUnited in the loser's final, but eUnited were by far the better team, winning 3-0 to set up a grand final rematch with Rogue.

The first match's first round went eUnited's way on Nepal, but Rogue rallied to take an early 1-0 lead. This was increased to 2-0 on Route 66, buy eUnited took their own point by winning Assault on Hanamura 4-3. As strong as eUnited were on Numbani, however, the game, set, and match was with Rogue, meaning they took home a 3-1 victory and $25,000 US dollars in prize money.

It's not as if eUnited is going home empty-handed, however, as they've earned $12,500 for their troubles, with third place Cloud9 also taking home $8,500 and Movistar Riders $4,000. Can Rogue continue this success though?
