Straight off the back of the excitement of ESL One New York came the WCS America Season 3 finals, which were played out at the ESL studios in Burbank, California. In the end it was the Korean Bomber who emerged victorious, but not without the event having provided a load of great eSports moments that our photographer captured on film.
