This goes without saying, but I sincerely hope that this match is slightly higher quality than the last one.

As for who wins? Some folks are looking at the historical Seoul Dynasty, which always seems to do poorly in the last week before then they perform well in the tournament. Unfortunately, unlike last season, not all teams make it into the May Melee Knockouts (which, if you think about it, is not necessarily a bad thing). I think the Dynasty will clinch this one by a 3-2 verdict.

Uh, oh, a Bastion has been sighted…and I think we all know what THAT means.

Please accept my apologies to all the ladder players whose matches will now be messed up because people are now trying to replicate Bastion’s success.

As for the match at hand, the Seoul Dynasty are one map away from the match victory, which will bring them that much closer to the May Melee Knockouts.

NEXT UP: The second half of Dynasty vs. NYXL. The Seoul Dynasty are on MATCH POINT.

This isn’t a game anymore.
It’s an operating theatre.


Wasn’t expecting Seoul to roll that hard - they don’t seem to look as inconsistent as they were last year (at least so far). Good to see them not force Marve1 on off-tank as well.

The Seoul Dynasty sweep the NYXL out the door, and get that much closer to the May Melee.

Eichenwalde (Hybrid): Seoul Dynasty 3, New York Excelsior 2.

FINAL SCORE: Seoul Dynasty 3, New York Excelsior 0


The Seoul Dynasty advance to 2-1 and can clinch the 2 seed in the May Melee with a 3-0 victory tomorrow against the L.A Valiant. For the NYXL, while they are not mathematically eliminated from the May Melee (yet), it is looking extremely bleak for them heading into the final day tomorrow.

Now, it’s on to the final match…the Shanghai Dragons versus the Hangzhou Spark. Will this also be a stomp? Only 1 way to find out!
