The round against Mad Banners and Tribal Toucans was the one to break the ice. Mad Banners were under the radar of many fans in the bracket as the team that was undefeated during the qualifiers. They won their first match on Sky Temple with 17 takedowns to 2. The Toucans then got their revenge in a close match on Tomb of the Spider Queen. However, the team to win the third and last game was Mad Banners with another impressive score on Infernal Shrines. This team will be fighting in the round of 32 tomorrow against ZOTBOYS who won 2-1 versus Falling Bricks.
The second round opposing 8th Street West and Grease Trucks ended with 8th Street winning with a crushing 2:0. They won both of the first matches, against their opponents leaving them with no chances to access the next round. 8th Street West will be facing Banana Cabana tomorrow.
This round was followed by the one between Mighty Churros and Crab Legs. The first match was won by Crab Legs who made great plays on Sky Temple. However, they lost the two other matches. Mighty Churros had a great E.T.C and Tyrande combo that was really efficient against Crab Leg’s team. Mighty Churros will be making their way up to the next round versus team Tricky Turtles. Finally, we saw QBuildBrightwing get victory over Havoc with two wins against zero. They will be fighting tomorrow against team Varsity Blues from Toronto. Both of those teams have similar stats and this will be another interesting match to watch.
We had our fair share of surprises throughout the matches. One of those was from team Illidan and Friends. According to TESPA and Heroes of the Dorm, only 21% of the players voted for this team to win against Maize Owl. They won their first match on Sky Temple with 13 takedowns against 2. They lost the second one but fought back and won the third one with having less takedowns again at 25 against 14.
