In a quick and hard-hitting Grand Finals, Classic Mixup has been crowned champions in ESEA Season 12 LAN. Mixup has gone beyond the old CheckSix record and completed an even more perfect resume of an Invite team: both 16-0 in the main season and no map losses during LAN as a shiny bonus on top.
In total, Spacewhales were only able to grab 3 rounds out of them, and Leviathan Gaming only 1. Leviathan seemed to come out strong in the first cpbadlands game despite the lack of warm-up practice, but Mixup were quick to shut down b4nny and hammer through flanks all the way to last for a 5-0 finish. By cpprocess everyone had woken up and stretched their fingers enough to give us the classic LG-Mixup back and forth play for Leviathan's first cap of the finals. Opportunity was still small and went flying out of Leviathan's hands at Platinum's terrifying sticky-trap that dropped Shade's uber in the last round, giving Mixup a 5-1 finish.
Congratulations to everyone who attended LAN and many thanks to all the hard-working people behind the streams and hype-building who helped make it happen!
