GALE’s RobTV defeated PSYCHO team captain Toi 2-0 in round three and NuckleDu eliminated JustAKid in round four.

iDom’s Team STORM is looking incredibly strong right now. Opposing teams have to choose between banning iDom’s Laura or Samurai’s Akuma and it’s not an easy one. Nephew’s Team FROST elected to ban Akuma, once again unleashing iDom’s Laura. This team battle was an intense, back and forth affair ending with a thrilling match between iDOM’s Laura and UpToSnuff’s Necalli. Team STORM took the win 3-2 and iDOM, who has struggled to win with Birdie as a secondary character, is undefeated with his Laura. Even though they came up short, Team FROST put on an impressive performance with UpToSnuff with his Necalli coming close to eliminating all of STORM.
Team STORM remains on top of the standings this week at first place with a 6-2 score. This is Team STORM’s sixth straight win. Team INFERNO bounced back from their loss last week to keep second place after tie-breakers also with a 6-2 score. Team GALE holds third place with a score of 5-3 and FROST hold fourth place at 4-4.
