The dust has settled on another GvG season... and with all points tallied, the winner once again is Blue Army. For the second season in a row, this organized and efficient crew took a creative and results-based approach to racking up season points, and claimed their second crown.
In the aftermath of Season 4, Blue Army were the undisputed kings of open-world ZvZs. But with a pre-season point adjustment to castles, as well as a robust Crystal GvG scene already underway, their dominance in Season 5 was never a sure thing.
However, with an early surge by several SQUAD teams, Blue Army was able to capture and hold Caerleon along with numerous other plots, assuring them a steady flow of funds throughout the season. Coupled with excellent shotcalling, powerful GvG teams, and a still-unstoppable ZvZ presence, their path to victory became clearer as the season progressed.
