This was a hell of a weekend for our WarCraft 3 team with a lot of tournament action!
It all started on Friday with the pG Champions Cup #2 where Ignas “Bizzare” Mockaitis and Vladimir “Sheik” Nikolaev took part in. After being defeated by “BlaDe” in round 1 of the tournament, Bizarre was revenged by his team mate Sheik in the Grand Finals. Sheik won the Best-of-Five with 3-1.
Later that evening, Sheik, Bizarre, Vladimir “rvs” Buravkov and Mikhail “XeLSinG” Illyinchyk played the Friday Random Fun Cup. Though Sheik could not repeat his performance from the previous cup, he still looked pretty good against the Ukrainian legend “Foggy” in the quarter-finals. The Russian wolf managed to take one map but finally lost 1-2.
Rvs and Bizzare did not have too much luck as they met each other in round 2 of the tournament. This duel was won by Bizzare who fell short to “BlaDe” in the round after. Meanwhile, XeLSinG fought his way through to the semi-finals where he also faced “BlaDe” but ultimately suffered the same fate as Bizzare.
The first stage of the LifeLine Tournament was the next event for our WarCraft team. Jeremy “BsK” Duez and Rvs could not make it past round 1 while XeLSinG managed to reach the second stage of the cup which will take place next week. Bizzare and Sheik almost made it to the next level as well but were defeated one round before they reached the checkpoint.
The Psichodеlica Cup 2 was the last individual cup of the weekend. Ilya “Sonik” Malish reached round 3 where he lost to the soon to be tournament winner “Happy”. Rvs could not make it past round 2 while BsK was not able to defeat “Foggy” in the first round of the tournament. Once more, Sheik delivered a great performance and reached the semi-finals after taking down “Lucifer”. In his semi-final he was defeated 2-0 by “Foggy” however.
In the NWC3L both of our teams had some interesting matches to play. In division 2, our team took a 10-5 victory over second placed HOT ELITE 2018, expanding their lead at the top of the table.
Team one had a tougher nut to crack as they faced the top team Soviet War Elites. This match was a literal back and forth which ended in a 8-7 in favor of the Swedish opponents.
Great weekend & well played by all players – we can’t wait for the next one!
