Quincy Crew added more silverware to their trophy cabinet on Saturday when they swept 4 Zoomers 3-0 in the grand finals of the OMEGA League Americas Divine Division.
At this point, it’s hard to be surprised by Quincy Crew winning a Dota2 tournament but at the same time, it’s difficult to not be impressed by how far this team has come this year. Throughout their two-year-long history, Quincy Crew have had their fair share of difficulties – namely roster instability – but it seems like all the pieces fell into place in March when the core of players returned to play under QC’s banner after their four-month stint with Chaos Esports Club.
Since Quincy Crew got back together, the North American esports organisation made only one roster change, when they replaced Malthe “Biver” Winther with ex-Ninjas in Pyjamas offlaner Rodrigo “Lelis” Santos, which ushered Quincy Crew’s most successful period since the team was formed in August 2018.
Avery “SVG” Silverman and his crew started the year with a runner-up finish at ESL One Los Angeles 2020 – Online: North America in April, to which they added two more silver medals from BTS Pro Series: Americas and Dota 2 BEAT Invitational Season 9. But that was only a taste of things to come.
Quincy Crew went on to attend six events and won all of them, including FVBet Showmatch #1, ESL One Birmingham 2020 – Online: North & South America, BTS Pro Series Season 2: Americas, OGA Dota PIT S2: Americas, The Great American Rivalry Season 1 Division 1, ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas and have now added their seventh consecutive Dota2 tournament title with another phenomenal performance at OMEGA League: Americas Divine Division.
At the OMEGA League SVG and co. had no real difficulties securing the top spot in the group, which they achieved with a perfect 4-0 record and 8-1 map differential. Quincy Crew then carried over their momentum into the playoffs, where they defeated beastcoast (2-1) and 4 Zoomers (2-1) to secure a spot in the grand finals, where they reunited with familiar faces of Nico “Gunnar” Lopez and his stack of players.
Like it was the case in the upper bracket finals, 4 Zoomers stood no chance against the surging Quincy Crew, who left nothing to chance and swept their regional rivals with a clean 3-0 win.
Not one of the three games was close, which in most part was due to Quincy Crew’s strong early game and composed playstyle that allowed them to snowball their lead into a victory. What makes Quincy Crew’s title-winning run even more impressive, is the fact that they dropped only three maps throughout the whole event to business associates, beastcoast and 4 Zoomers.
What’s more, in Quincy Crew managed 3-0 sweeps in all of the last three grand finals appearances including The Great American Rivalry Season 1 Division 1, ESL One Thailand 2020: Americas and now OMEGA League. By winning the OMEGA League: Americas Divine Division, Quincy Crew pocketed US $12,000 in tournament winnings, which brings their total tournament earnings of 2020 to $138.922.
With BTS Pro Series Season 3: Americas just around the corner, it is likely Quincy Crew will enter the event to defend their BTS Pro Series Season 2 title. However, their participation has yet to be confirmed by either the organisers or the players, meaning Quincy Crew could be taking a short break to recharge their batteries.
