In the final both teams fielded a rogue/warlock/shaman setup, but Nerdstomer Blue ultimately proved too strong for Evil Geniuses and won the $9,000 first place prize. Evil Geniuses, losing 2-3, took home the $4,500 second place prize. For team lists, results and the breakdown of the tournament go to gotfrag.com.
