In the next two days we will know who will be going to the Gears of War Pro League Season 2 finals! Things are heating up as the teams continue to fight for a spot in the Season 2 conclusion at PAX East. Here's a look at what happened during weeks five and six as we head into the last online rounds.

WEEK 5

Returning champions Denial are fighting EnVyUs for the top spot after the boys in blue dominated their day ten game with a three-map sweep in week five, reaping the benefits of moving to a team house in North Carolina for Season 2. It was also a good week for Justus as they gained their first win of the season against OrbitGG in a five-map game, closing out the series with a 4-2 win on Fuel Depot.

DAY 9 DAY 10
Justus 1 - 3 DreamTeam DreamTeam 3 - 0 eLevate
OrbitGG 2 - 3 Notorious EnVyUs 3 - 0 Denial
EnVyUs 3 – 1 eLevateGG E6 3 - 2 Notorious

WEEK 6

Notorious (formerly Strictly Business) took the first series against DreamTeam 3-0 on day 12, helping to solidify a place in the Season 2 finals. In a scary series for Denial, Justus won the first two maps, threatening to move Denial further away from their near-undefeated status in Season 1, but Denial took the series in a reverse sweep, ending with a final score of 3-2.
