Four Down held for about 50%, but Scylla came raging back to take the point again and hold for the first round of the match.

Shifting to Control Center, Scylla again showed strength after strength, wiping out Four Down for the first point capture. After taking the point, Scylla pushed forward to hold Four Down near their spawn until overtime, but Four Down managed to push back harder and take point. At 57%, Scylla repeated their performance from Night Market, and took the point back for the win in round 2 of the match.

Travelling to Garden, Scylla moved up hard and fast to control the point right from the get go, denying Four Down from the point almost totally. Four Down managed to take the point for 12%, but Scylla proved to be too strong overall, taking the match 3-0.

Back to Route 66, and this time it's Yes Men vs. Monopoly Club. Yes Men on defense, Monopoly Club pushed the payload up to the gas station before Yes Men jumped downo try and stop Monopoly Club. Monopoly Club proved to be too strong for the first defense, and rolled on through to the first checkpoint. Monopoly Club kept their roll going, basically steam-rolling Yes Men all the way through the second checkpoint and through to the final point with 3:02 left on the clock.

Switching sides, Yes Men had their work cut out for them to win this match. Pushing up to the gas station, Monopoly Club held Yes Men back for a while, but hte payload started moving again before Monopoly Club jumped down to stop them and hold for the rest of the round, winning the match for Monopoly Club 0-3.

The streamed match for round 4 was WM1 vs. Defuse on Watchpoint: Gibraltor. Defuse opened up the attack, with WM1 starting their defense after the ditch. With the payload sitting at the server room, Defuse managed to push WM1 out of the way to get the payload to the first point. Pushing partway through the second section, WM1 had the advantage of the high ground to repulse Defuse quite effectively a couple of times. Defuse came raging in again and burned several ultimates to push their way almost to the second point, but WM1 managed to stall it out for a minute, but Defuse pulled together and got the payload to the second point and extra time at 20 seconds. Halfway up the hill, and WM1 once again repulsed Defuse from the point, costing them precious time. Defuse had one push left with 15 seconds, but a massive Earthshatter from Noied told Defuse they weren't going anywhere.

Switching around, Defuse knew they had to hold before the first point to boost their confidence. A long push to the server room, and Defuse held WM1 from going any further fo that push. Constant back and forth battles at the server room stymied WM1 until the very last moments, taking the last fight and pushing to the first point. Pushing in to the hangar, WM1 kept their roll going and got through with a minute to spare. With the distance needed on the final corner, WM1 psued to with 10 meters before Defuse managed to pull together and push them back. WM1 came in with a massive push, but a last minute Nano-visor from TBRVanguard saved the payload for Defuse, and allowed them to take the win 2-2 with a distance advantage.

Round 5

  • Four Down vs. Default (W) 1-3
  • The Unprofessionals (W) vs. Sweatshop 3-2

  • BYE: Team Reticent

This round saw Wumbology vs. Defuse on Lijiang Tower. Starting on Control Center, Wumbology and Defuse met in the middle for an epic battle that evetually resulted in Wumbology taking the point first. Defuse failed their next push, but came in big at 79% to take the point from Wumbology. Pushing up even further, Defuse decided to try holding Wumbology near their spawn, but Wumbology rushed through with big push and take the point back and held it for the first round win.

On to Night Market, the teams met for their first fight in the courtyard, with Defuse winning out and taking the point first. Wumbology were having none of that, however, and took the point from Defuse at 19%. Defuse tried pushing in with a nano-boosted Winston, but a wombo-combo of graviton surge and barrage saw Defuse melt away. A quick push and cap by Defuse gave them a boost to 27%, but Wumbology were quick to take it back again to take it out.

Arriving at Gardens, Wumbology were feeling good about their performance, knowing they only had to win this map to take out the match. Defuse tried their best to hold Wumbology back, but failed and Wumbology took the point first yet again. Multiple pushes by Defuse over the bridge were repulsed, with their final push being exterminated emphatically by a pharah boop and barrage by Park, leaving Wumbology the winner of the match 3-0.
