Over the course of the past week, the top 8 teams from team wars have been competing in best of 3 matches with every other team and the top 4 moving on to the second week of the finals have been decided. A surprise performance from Misplay Display a team that barely made top 8 has left them at seed #2 with astral crusaders pulling into seed #1 after a tiebreaker. In 3rd is Meltdown Town and 4th is BloodBound Brothers.
Next week the matches will be played between these teams with Misplay Display vs Meltdown Town & Astral Crusaders vs BloodBound Brothers in a single elimination bracket. Bo11 Matches following the Last Hero Standing format. Predictions for who will win are completely up in the air with a lot of the teams that dominated the first 13 weeks like Juveys Disciples and Black Boxers being knocked out in the playoffs. I myself will be rooting for the Meltdown Town victory but an argument could be made for every team in the Top 4.
