OpTic Gaming defeated Astralis to win the ELeague Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Season 2 championship Saturday, walking away with $400,000 and a team achievement: their first-ever championship at a major international tournament.

Both Astralis and OpTic Gaming came into the finals never having won a big international tournament, but the North American OpTic managed to control the pace of the second and third maps to beat the Danish Astralis, 2-1. 

OpTic is only the second North American team to win a major championship in nine years after Cloud9 won ESL Pro League Season 4 in October.
