TEAM DYNAMITE vs TEAM NASR
Banned Characters: Akuma and Balrog
This week featured two incredible Team Battles with the first being Smug’s Team DYNAMITE against Big Bird’s Team NASR. The team captains faced off in the first matchup with Big Bird’s highly aggressive Rashid getting the first win over Smug’s G with a score of 2-1.
The biggest surprise of this Team Battle was MenaRD selecting Sakura as his character against AngryBird’s Zeku. MenaRD has been using Birdie and Abigail as his main characters and the Sakura pick was unexpected. He defeated AngryBird, who has been a monster in prior weeks, with a score of 2-1. This was AngryBird’s first single match elimination of the season.
MenaRD then went on to defeat Big Bird’s Rashid in the fourth matchup 2-0 and finally Samurai’s Ryu in a very close match 2-1. MenaRD is a Capcom Cup Champion and everyone respects his Birdie but his Sakura has revealed itself to be formidable, delivering an OCV for his team.
For Team NASR the highlight was Samurai. With his main character Akuma banned once again he used his tried and true Ryu to great effect. He got a convincing win over Gamerbee’s Seth 2-0 in the third match and was a hit or two away from beating MenaRD in the final match.
TEAM PSYCHO SHINOBI vs TEAM ALL-IN
Banned Characters: Guile and G
iDom’s Team ALL-IN keeps on rolling this week getting a 3-2 win over HotDog29’s Team PSYCHO SHINOBI. Xian and his Seth won the first matchup against 801 Strider’s Urien with a pretty convincing 2-0 score to lead things off. The Guile ban this week seemed to have really hit Caba hard as his secondary character, Ryu, seemed to stand little chance against SKZ’s Seth in the next match.
The team captains faced off in the third match in a thrilling match between iDom’s Laura and HotDog29’s M.Bison. HotDog29 was in the life lead in several of those rounds but iDom’s Laura made clutch plays to snatch them away. The match came down to the very last round but iDom got the win 2-1.
Xian got a big 2-0 win against SKZ in a Seth mirror-match and the Team Battle came down to Xian versus iDom. Xian looked strong in the first round but after that iDom just kept making good reads which led to big damage combos and mix-up opportunities for his Laura. iDom would beat Xian 2-0 to secure another win for Team ALL-IN and keep their undefeated streak going at 3-0.
