I just want to say that I have a newfound respect for those who are battling COVID. Yesterday morning, I received the J&J vaccine at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Now, I’m battling the worst fever I’ve had in quite awhile (which I hope is just a side effect and not something more dangerous).

On to the match at hand. With the NYXL having gone through it’s trial by fire, I think the NYXL will take this one 3-2 over the Spark.

An aggressive spawn camp later, the NYXL are one map away from getting their first win of the season!

NEXT UP: The second half of Spark vs. Excelsior. The New York Excelsior are on MATCH POINT.

Glad to hear you got the shot. All the Pfizer did for me was make me sleep 13 hours.

Everyone should take it! Sadly, there’s going to be about 27% of the world that won’t.

They’ll get around to young people soon enough, no worries!

The NYXL go 1-1 on the week and at least have a chance to make the May Melee. Meanwhile, the Hangzhou Spark go back to the drawing board after an 0-2 week and are now in serious danger of missing the May Melee.

Next up, we have a Battle of the Undefeated as the Chengdu Hunters face the Philadelphia Fusion, with the winner locking up the 1 seed in the May Melee.

Sorry for the delay everyone, but the next thread will begin here:

Alright everyone, the encore for this match is now live, enjoy and earn more tokens!

Lucky :sob:
I got a rash and my whole arm hurt badly for about a week. Second shot is May 6th and I’m nervous.
