When Tony “Lethul” Campbell Jr. left North American powerhouse Evil Geniuses for Counter Logic Gaming, the move created a domino effect among the top NA Halo teams, as players bounced from team to team. When CLG new team lost Evil Geniuses at the X Games in Aspen, some fans questioned Lethul’s chaos-making decision.
Today those questions have been answered.
Counter Logic Gaming thoroughly dominated Team Allegiance, winning every map but the final CTF by a sizable margin. The team takes home $1,000,000 for their efforts, as well as the trophy and championship rings.
Veteran Halo player Naded took home the fan voted MVP award, and while the honor and share of $500,000 for Team Allegiance is admirable, his team crumbled against Counter Logic Gaming. Team Allegiance rarely looked in control during the match, and even CLG seemed astonished by the ease of their victory. One CLG player served up some choice words for Team Allegiance’s performance during a particularly explosive listen-in, to the dismay of some fans:
Am I the only one that cringed during that end of game teabag/listen-in? Yikes. #HaloWC

Any way you want to say it, the numbers don’t lie – CLG completely outclassed their opponents, and they are getting a lot of love from fans and former players.
