Orange Rock Hold Onto Lead On Final Day


TSM-Entity fell flat on the final day while Orange Rock maintained their consistency with 3 top 5 finishes. By the end of the competition, OR finished with 10 chicken dinners in 48 matches, the highest out of all the other teams. Meanwhile TSM-Entity finished with the highest number of kills at 276. SynerGE’s 256 point haul in week 3 was the highest for a team in a week, but the team still fell short and ended in 4th place, 9 points behind Godlike. A chicken dinner on the final day allowed Godlike to comfortably regain the 3rd place while SynerGE had already finished their quota of games. 



Soul and Marcos Gaming Impress on Final Day


Team Soul, who are under heavy fire for underperforming in the league stage, made a last ditch effort to impress their fans. The team ended in 8th place thanks to a last game chicken dinner, which also involved 14 kills. Marcos Gaming too, made up for a relatively quiet league stage with 3 top 3 finishes on the final day, eventually settling for 7th place.
