After a somewhat slow start to the tourney, it has finally seemed step up a phase lately with many matches being played in both the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket. *** UPDATE ***
Rikoll vs Avenger scheduled for Sunday 13.03 22:00 CET !
VVD stepping up and helping out on admins duties, we've witnessed good games in both the Winners Bracket and Losers Bracket, and W.Os handed out in a controlled manner. Even though the Losers Bracket is still somewhat behind schedual, the Winners Bracket has already reached its Semi final stage: bps vs. Marklar (aka Fifi):
bps took home a surprisingly comfortable 2-0 victory
Kingpin in the quarters. Earlier history
have shown that Kingpin usually got the upper hand on aero, bps on dm4, and that the rest of the maps are quite even with bps having a slight edge. Even though Kingpin just got some new hardware prior to the match that he hadn't got used to, it is quite clear that bps looks to be in good shape
Marklar on the other hand, struggled
in his quarter vs the underdog
Maks. While many might be surprised by this, I am not since from my experience Maks surely can beat almost any player on any map on a good day. Marklar has also earlier shown great tendencies by beating the legend,
in the tournament.
So don't miss out on this one, ladies! This promises for an intense nail biter. Rikoll vs. Avenger :
With only one map loss
Maga so far in the tourney, I'm feeling quite confident atm, specially after winning my quarters
vs Swedish div0 superstar,
Hagge in a fashionably way. I'm also really looking forward facing
Avenger in an official, since I know what this guy is capable of, and that I know I really need to put up a really good performance to best this guy in a BO3.
Avenger on the other hand hasn't lost a single map yet, with an arguably easier path to the semis, with his first match of the tourney vs. his kinsman
er, as his toughest challenge so far. I'm also sure Avenger is really eager to prove his worth by beating me, and I expect some really tense maps with loads of
and nerves. Again ladies, make sure to not miss out on this one!
In the LB we got a really interesting series of games, starting with
Xenic, the winner facing
Maga, and the winner of that again facing
Kingpung. It will also be interesting to see how far interesting players such as
Maks will go
GGs so far! Give
VVD a big hug next time you see him for getting this show down the right path again. GL HF everyone!Links:ShowDown season2
