Keep an eye on Team Letzebuerg !
Do you like goals? The Luxembourgish from Team Letzebuerg got you covered! They scored no less than 18 goals (8-1, 10-8) against their fellow countrymen from Letzebuerg. This one-sided game allowed them to face IziDream, the southern French team, in the winners’ semifinal. Unfortunately for them, the previously boosted confidence wasn’t enough and Team Letzebuerg logically lost 0-3 (0-4, 2-6, 1-4) and were sent to the losers bracket. They’ll end up in fifth place after losing a very close match against Team WMB 1-2.
Team WMB’s remontada
After losing in the third round of the winners bracket against Mec, the Belgium from Team WMB had no room for errors left. They successively got rid of UNIVERSE (2-0), Send to ti +end (2-0), Team Letzebuerg (2-1) and got a rematch against Mec in the losers semifinal. Galvanized by their will to avenge themselves, the Belgium team made the difference and qualified for the losers bracket final against Athletix eSport. Sadly this last opponent was too strong for them and they lost 2-3 after fighting until the last second. They ended up in third place and won €120.
Athletix eSport vs IziDream : two breathtaking rounds
No one can deny that Athletix eSport vs IziDream was the clash of the weekend. The two teams fought on two occasions : in the winners bracket’s final and grand final. The first game was a total nail-biter but Izidream came out victorious 3-2 (3-2 after overtime, 2-3, 1-3, 5-2, 3-2 after being down 0-2 until the last minute).
But Athletix eSport came back stronger than ever after their victory against Team WMB in the losers bracket’s final. But this was not an easy task as IziDream, coming from the winning bracket, began the match with a 1-0 advantage. That did not prevent them from taking their revenge as well as the final win and €400 euros on the score of 4-2 (3-4 after overtime, 3-1, 3-0, 3-2 after overtime, 2-0)
