FireFly tournament : Crush the Champion

Recommended Posts

Just to let you know that FireFly is organizing a new tournament: Crush the Champion

It is going to be with 1v2 battles and they have chosen four veteran players to go up against four teams of 2.

That may seem unfair, but the players they have chosen to play solo are really good. I have seen some of them in action and I would trust them to beat a team of 2 in this game.

 

Also, what I like is, that this time it is not an elimination tournament, but instead the players score points. And the Champions can get points even if they loose their battle, but hold out well. So it could be really interesting.

 

Unfortunately, I cannot take part or watch it live, as it is happening during a weekend. But I hope they are putting a YouTube video up.

This sounds really interesting. Regarding watching the fight, on the other hand if they do make a recording of it, it might be even more comfortable to watch the video then watching a stream. :) If they do upload a match, I may watch it, and see how other players play the game. :)

This tournament was played last weekend.

 

Lo and behold, it was one of the lone champions - Skur - who carried the day and won it.

 

 

I was not able to watch it live, but going by the final scores there must have been some really interesing fights.

1v2 sound unfair? But some champions out there are amazingly good. And the maps were chosen to give the solo player a reasonable chance with a slight resource advantage and a V shape position (i.e. avoiding a sandwich situation).

 

But the players in the teams were no beginners either. Skur was able to win 3 out of 4 matches against the 2-opponent teams and he was actually also the only one, to defeat the teams. Going by the scores, Igi_tanas must have managed to at least kill one opponent and survive another match until the time was up.

Sergiu is going to put the matches up on YouTube. The first one can be seen already. Others will follow over the coming days.
