CLG have advanced to the grand final of CEVO Season 6 after moving past Nihilum by a 2-0 scoreline (16-13 on de_cache and 19-16 on de_inferno).
MLG.tv's arena in Columbus, Ohio, is playing host to the offline finals of CEVO Season 6's professional division, featuring the top four sides from the regular season, who will be battling it out for their share of the $11,722 prize purse.
The semi-finals of the tournament featured an interesting clash between CLG and eLevate, who are attending the event with ex-iBP duo Spencer "Hiko" Martin andTyler "Skadoodle" Latham as stand-ins. Following two close maps, victory ended up going the way of CLG, who relied on strong individual displays from Tarik "tarik" Celik and Stephen "reltuC" Cutler.

Nihilum Gaming, formerly known as Denial, then secured the second place in the Upper Bracket final after easing past Luminosity without too much trouble.
Both maps of the Upper Bracket final went down to the wire, especially the second one, which went to overtime, but in the end CLG ran out 2-0 victors, with Celik topping the scoreboard once again.
The CEVO finals will resume tonight with the consolidation final, which will pit Nihilum against eLevate, at 23:00. The winner of this match will take on CLG in the grand final, with Peter "ptr" Gurney's side needing to win just one best-of-three series to be crowned champions, whereas their opponent will need to win back-to-back series.
