This week we had the pleasure of attending our first LAN event after the covid outbreak. With 4 other invited teams and 5 teams that made it past the open qualifiers, we were ready to battle it out over the weekend.
We got a bumpy start as we ran into an unexpected loss in the first match of the group stages to MBAPPEEK. However we picked things up again and after a run in the lower brackets we got to the playoffs.
Here we faced our Bulgarian rivals FATE for the semi-finals! It ended up in a BO3 slugfest where we came out on top 2 – 1 in the end. This was an important battle for us and one of the highlights of the year.
In the grand final we once again came up against our round 1 opponents in MBAPPEEK. Once again the audience got to witness an amazing series of games! In the firs map of the series, we needed 4 overtimes to conclude it. MBAPPEEK came out victorious in that one, but we bounced back with a win on map 2 of the series. The 3rd map of the series was another hard fought map, but in the end MBAPPEEK closed it out.
We came out in 2nd place of the tournaments and with that landed one of our strongest results of the year! With the result the boys also took home $2.500 and a great performance! We cant wait to see what comes up next.
