In the finals of the Snapdragon Pro Series Brawl Stars Season 1 challenge, Reply Totem, Tribe Gaming and SK Gaming qualified for the grand finals. The last two delivered a thriller.
Calm instead of hot temper: the secret recipe?
As the third and decisive set ended, the Tribe Gaming players remained calm, with no trace of ecstasy. However, they had a reason for this, in an immensely exciting game, they beat SK Gaming and thus reached the top bracket final.
Variety in up to three sentences
Who makes the path just opened at the end. The game is played to the best of three, a set is won when a team wins two or three rounds. The number of rounds played depends on the mode. It changes after every sentence, so it’s always about taking out opposing players, but also about completing tasks. Hoarding more diamonds than your rival, taking a control zone or scoring more goals in handball.
So it was the Zones of Control game mode that made the difference. After SK Gaming fought back several times, they were unable to take advantage of their real skills in the deciding round. The reason? Draft SK captain Bekri ‘Symantec’ Tahiri told kicker eSport: “We had to take characters that we hadn’t trained like that.” The draft consists of choosing the characters of the game, which is done in turns. The coin toss decides who starts the draft, the other team can select two characters in a row.
With peace and comfort and fans on the back
Still, SK Gaming struggled, biting off the set and making it 2-2. However, Tribe Gaming was not impressed and won the decisive third round. A level of caution that made the difference in victory, Captain Muhammad ‘Drage’ Drage told us. Support from a group of Reply Totem fans might have helped as well. They loudly applauded Tribe Gaming.
After all, SK Gaming is considered Totem’s toughest competitor, as their superstar Erik Bravo ‘Joker’ Granstrom told us. The team around the 16-year-old qualified easily and extended the winning streak to ten games in a row without losing. Tribe Gaming awaits them on Sunday, but ‘Symantec’ and company also have a chance to win the cup and £60,000 in prizes, but just one more. Because the team that loses in the top bracket final gets a second chance against SK Gaming.
