The Oceania Six August 2020 Major was the stage 1 ‘Mini-Major’ for this region, as the US held International Major was cancelled due to the pandemic. In this regional ‘mini-major’, the top three from the Six Masters 2020 Finals took part in a single elimination tournament. Wildcard Gaming, the top seed, went straight into the finals of this August Major as they were the champions of the Six Master 2020.
The tournament started with the Preliminary Final (Bo3), where Okami LFO went head-to-head with Pittsburgh Knights to secure their place in the finals against Wildcard Gaming.
Pittsburgh Knights went straight into the finals beating Okami LFO 2-0 in the best of 3 series. The Knights went against Wildcard Gaming in the finals, with Wildcard still being the favorites to win this Major.
It was a shaky start for Wildcard Gaming, as Pittsburgh Knights won the first map 7-3 in Oregon. But it was a best of five series, which meant the better team will have more opportunities to show their consistency and strength. And Wildcard Gaming did just that, taking the next three maps and eventually also winning the bo5 series 3-1. You can watch the full stream on Twitch.
Wildcard Gaming will be taking home their share of $15,000 USD of the total $30,000 prize pool, but will also be the only team in this region to receive 330 Six Invitational points for the global table. You can check the Global Points Standing here.
But the teams still have a long way to go before the Six Invitational 2021, with Stage 2 starting in the near future. The LATAM Six August Major is currently going on, so keep watching R6esports for a chance to get Special August Major Twitch drops.
