We are down to the top eight, which means we only have four games in the winner's bracket this week.
Milton vs. xenic
In the battle of the Finns we will see two players that have been practicing with each other lately. Milton is of course the favorite here and should be able to win relatively easily on aerowalk and ztndm3. xenic has shown that he's capable of taking down Milton on dm4, but whether he can do that on dm6 and dm2 remains to be seen. Everyone knows that xenic is one of the best aimers in the business, so there is no room for mistakes for the tournament favorite.
Rikoll vs. valla
Here we see two players that one might not have expected to see on round of 8. Rikoll got here with a relatively easy bracket. valla on the other hand had to take down lakso and mawe on his way. The story of this match is the same as the other matches valla has played. He's a really good player, but can't compete on aerowalk or ztndm3. I'm afraid this time that fact might finally be too much to overcome.
slabi vs. locust
This game has dm2 decider written all over it. Last week slabi did the impossible and took down Avenger on dm6 and ztndm3. He should have those two maps in the bag this week too, while locust has the advantage on dm4 and aerowalk.
LocKtar vs. xpr
xpr is coming of a convincing victory vs. arnette and seems to be in a really good shape. LocKtar's shape on the other hand is more of a mystery since he got a walk over from Bulat. In any case the Swede has been active and is certainly the favourite coming into this game.
