TEAM ALL-IN vs TEAM DYNAMITE
Banned Characters: Balrog and Poison
iDom’s Team ALL-IN continues to look incredibly strong this week, getting a win over Smug’s Team DYNAMITE 3-1. All three players on Team ALL-IN performed very well even though 801 Strider lost his matchup against MenaRD. SKZ is making a convincing argument for himself as the League’s best Seth player. This week he had to play not one but two Seth mirror-matches and won both with little difficulty. DYNAMITE aimed its character ban at iDom by banning his Poison but the strategy did not pay off as his Laura dismantled Smug’s G 2-0.
On the DYNAMITE side, MenaRD once again pulled out a surprise character with Seth being his pick this week. His Sakura carried his team on his back last week, getting the OCV against Team NASR. This week his Seth got a nice 2-1 win over 801 Strider but looked a bit out of his depth against SKZ’s Seth.
TEAM ALPHA 3 vs TEAM UYU
Banned Characters: Kolin and Rashid
It has been another good week for Punk’s Team ALPHA 3. In week one ALPHA 3 looked nervous in their Team Battle against ALL-IN but they have since bounced back and have been playing as strong as you would expect. This week’s Team Battle against Oil King’s Team UYU was about as close to a clinic as you can get in such a highly competitive environment, getting the win with a clean 3-0.
Team UYU has two players who use Rashid as their main character in Oil King and JB so the Rashid ban hits them hard. So far they have not been able to win when Rashid has been banned. Rashid can only be banned one time in each Team Battle matchup so they are likely to be much stronger in the second half of the season. Kami was the highlight for UYU with a close match with his Seth against Nephew’s G during the Team Battle’s very first matchup.
