It was a season to remember for Melbourne Order who, thanks to a dominant round by ROF in Street Fighter, secured all three titles on offer during the grand final weekend.

Order had already converted their heavy favouritism in CS:GO into a comfortable 3-0 grand final victory over the Sydney Chiefs, before taking advantage of Sydney’s shock semifinal loss in Rocket League to knock off Melbourne Avant and grab a second trophy.

Perth Ground Zero in Street Fighter were viewed as their biggest threat to going three-for-three on the weekend, but Order handled the challenge like pros. A convincing 4-1 victory in the best-of-seven saw them grab the last remaining piece of silverware.

The Gfinity Elite Series is Australia’s first city-based esports league, with six clubs battling it out across five weeks of regular season play and two weeks of finals to claim a share of the $225,000 prize money.
