Xbox SA GOWJ Tournament – Round 2

X360ZA Judgment TourneyWeek 2 of the Xbox SA GOWJ Tournament upped its production values with some top notch commentary and smooth streams from of the all the matches and they were repaid by the community for their efforts as the stream chat was busy throughout the night. Even though we haven’t seen any major upsets yet that does not mean that the matches were short of any intensity, spectators I’m sure were plenty entertained.

Lone Wolf – Round 2

Lone Wolf - Round 2The FFA round was packed this week with 6 groups of 9 each which meant despite Gondola being one of the bigger maps it wasn’t too difficult to find some action and those all important kills. The groups were in most cases very Gnasher heavy with the power weapon of choice being the Scorcher and Booshka to some heat to the already intense action. The first group of the night was the most tightly contested groups with the lead changing several times throughout the match and at the end only 5 separated the top 6. For the most part the other groups followed suite with 1st place in the group often going down to the wire but in some of the groups the action wasn’t as evenly spread out with some substantial gaps forming between the leading the group and the rest.

There was some controversy on the night too with a power outage at the Terraco site happening during 20:30 groups match which resulted in the group being restarted which wasn’t the most popular decision amongst the some players and spectators. The incident however was unavoidable and completely out of the admins control with the game not being able to setup with specific scores.

Clans – Round 2

Words cannot describe it when a team works together

Last weeks matches can be watched here.

I had picked the FLS Legion vs The Button mashers game last week as the game to watch but after the initial slow start where teams trade kills as they setup map control, the Legion side took complete control fo the match and the slight flutter at the end from The Button Mashers didn’t stop FLS Lgion from wrapping it up with a cool 20 kill lead. Capital Punishment and CMR Flashback delivered similar victories in the matches controlling the matches from start to finish.

Round 2 – Clans
19:00 Capital Punishment DTF The Apostasy
19:30 FLS Legion The Button Mashers
20:00 CMR Flashback Ghost Squad
20:30 Enter Team Name Hi5 Synergy
21:00 Judge Dredds GTWD

The closest match of the night turned out to be the Enter Team Name vs Hi5 Synergy match. Hi5 went into the match as clear favorites according to the commentators but what they didn’t know was that Enter Team Name (ETN) previously went by the name of Ghost of Onyx and were runners up in the GOW3 DGL Cup, these guys know how to handle a gnasher and a longshot! The round started off extremely cautiously with Hi5 choosing to control the top High Bell area as opposed to the lower High Bell area that most teams had fought over earlier in the evening. This gave ETN control of the scorcher which proved pivotal in their assault on the higher ground that Hi5 sought to control. The match dragged on in a stalemate for a large amount of time until eventually ETN broke past the hammerburst gallery of Hi5 they claimed control of the top section eventually forcing Hi5 to relocate near the Breachshot where they made their final stand, and what a final stand it was as ETN were looking for their last 3 kills, Hi5 pulled it back to 47-45 but a last nade/digger push saw ETN get those last three kills they needed.

In the following match which was a revenge match between Judge Dredds and GTWD as the two teams had already met in the previous round but GTWD had been promoted as the best performing losing side owing to the close match that they had last round. This time however, it wasn’t to be as the Judge Dredds dispatched the GTWD team with some degree of ease.

Round 3 – Preview

Play Bayern in one more cupRound 3 has been revealed to also be the final round of the tournament, with the semi-finals and finals for the sections taking place this weekend.Round 3 - RigOn Friday the lone wolf semi-finals will kick off at 19:00 on rig, 3 groups of 8 with only the top 3 of each group progressing to the finals at 21:00 on Haven. With only 3 players from each group progressing it is going to make every kill count. The groups are also pretty evenly distributed with no real favorites in any group, to be honest any of the semi-finalists have the ability to finish in the top 3 of their groups, it will literally come down to their luck on the night.

Then on Saturday will be the main event of the clan section with the final 6 teams remaining in the tournament commencing battle at 19:00. Having finished as the best scoring losing team of the last round, Hi5 Synergy will go up against CMR Flashback which will also be the first streamed match of the night. If the previous rounds are anything to go by, Hi5 have favoured a more ranged style of play while Flashback have been more involved in CQC, which will be the best potion in this round. All quarter finals will be played at the same time with Capital Punishment playing FLS Legion and Enter Team Name taking on the Judge Dredds. The CP – FLS game should be a good watch too as both have some experience playing at this level with Legion being finalists in the last GOW3 tournament and CP making the top 4 of the most recent Halo 4 tournament.

Following the quarter finals, the semi finals will take place at 20:00 + 20:30 with both matches being streamed, once again the best scoring losing team will also find themselves in the semi finals, so all teams need to keep playing and killing until the very end. The finals will then start at 21:00 and unlike all the matches in the tournament so far will be a best of 3 affair. The finalists will not only have to deal with playing on 2 maps which they possibly may not have trained fully but also the mental fatigue of playing 3 consecutive competitive games. Calm heads and plenty of Red Bull will be required.
 

Round 3 – Clans
19:00 CMR Flashback Hi5 Synergy
19:00 Capital Punishment FLS Legion
19:00 Enter Team Name Judge Dredds

Quite a few of this weekends matches will be live streamed so be sure to checkout the Xbox South Africa twitch page, the more views the streams get the better it will be for SA Gears and console gaming.

    not being close along with his family, as well as
    a report on “rules” for surviving the zombie
    apocalypse (triggered with a virulent form of human adapted mad cow disease), which gets to be
    a recurring motif inside the film. If a drive is beginning to worry or keep worrying

  38. Love Spells and Magic

    When one is in love the universe glows and when one is looking for that magical feeling of love to have in their life and just don’t seem to be able to find it then a love spell can help.
    By finding the right direction to pursue, you can completely recover this relationship, even if only one
    of you wants it. You can deviate from your destiny using energy manipulation such as a “spell” or trying to use the law of attraction, however, eventually your path will resurface,
    erasing your efforts.
