We’ve had a grueling weekend of group games come to a head with the strongest teams surviving. Honorable mentions go to t`Soodle from Team Ravioli for his Pudge play vs PPD (VOD) and the pure slugfest on display in the game between ‘Shoe stack’ and ‘Pause plz I’m lagging’ (VOD) in groups B & C respectively.
The groups have been the story of the statistical victory, with three way ties in all but one of the four groups. Poor Holy Cupcake was forced revisit his GCSE maths days factoring in GPM/XPM and Time scoring to equate the fairest possible result without doing play off games.
The final group standings are as below:
|Group A||W||D||L||P||Group B||W||D||L||P|
|We Love Danny D||6||0||0||18||Callumyoloswag||5||0||1||15|
|3 minute GG||4||0||2||12||Team Ravioli||5||0||1||15|
|Group C||W||D||L||P||Group D||W||D||L||P|
|BBQ Chicken eSports||5||0||0||15||`Az||5||0||0||15|
|Shoe Stack||3||0||2||9||TmF Gaming||3||0||2||9|
|PAUSE PLZ; i'm lagging||3||0||2||9||BGTS Throws||3||0||2||9|
Now the true challenge awaits, the remaining teams will face off in the double elimination brackets which are being release tomorrow (Tuesday the 23rd of July).
