At the end of the first Halo Classic in St. Louis, TOX Gaming was holding the trophy up on stage after a grueling Grand Finals vs Denial. This time around, however, the team found themselves in the Elimination Bracket after being defeated in round three of the Championship Bracket by Aspire Esports, who had three of the four Denial members on it’s roster.
Lux Gaming sent Aspire Esports down to the Elimination Bracket shortly after, sweeping the series 3-0. Meanwhile, Goldmembers, a temporary team consisting of Frosty, Snipedown, Pistola, and Eco, defeated Nfinite and Fatal Ambition, pitting them against Lux in the Winner’s Finals. The two teams took the series to a game five, but Lux Gaming came out on top, securing themselves a spot in the Grand Finals.
Waiting for Goldmembers in the finals of the Elimination Bracket was TOX Gaming, who had gotten their revenge on Aspire Esports in the previous round. The series also went the full five rounds with Goldmembers eliminating TOX from the tournament, winning three games to two.
Lux Gaming and Goldmembers faced off in a best-of-seven series, with Lux Gaming coming out strong winning the first two maps. Goldmembers answered back, however, taking the next three maps. The series would go to Map 7 after Lux Gaming won Narrows CTF.
The final map was a fan-favorite, The Pit Slayer. In the end, Lux Gaming won 50-47 and took home the Halo Classic: Atlantic City Championship.
