Myztro Gaming has sent their Quake Champions roster to Bucharest to compete in the PGL Open. These players (Raisy, Clawz, Garpy, Xron, Dooi and Silencep) will enter the arena and fight for a share of the $50,000 prize pool! Action starts on October 5th. Chris Jones and Dylan Winn from the Myztudio team will be keeping us up to date as the events at PGL develop, so keep checking back for regular updates!

Myztro did very well at the PGL Open. Out of 55 Players, Clawz went the furthest in the tournament, clinching Top 4 and $5,000. Every player played very well in Bucharest, and every player looks threatening coming into our next LAN event. GGWP! Until next time, this is Dylan Winn from Myztudio, signing off.

Well that was incredible to watch, wasn’t it? Our players threw everything including the kitchen sink at the best the world had to offer and came up just short in the end. There have been some great games, amazing plays and sickening shots that have made the viewing experience at PGL just fantastic. We wish Rapha and his yet to be determined (Cooler/K1llsen) opponent all the best in the final. Everyone is playing out their mind and it should be a good one. This is Chris Jones Myztudio Chief kicking back, we’ll see you online!

Map 1. Kicking off Championship Sunday. Round 1 starts off with very impressive Railgun shots from Clawz, as well as 2 From The Shadows kills, giving Clawz the lead 1-0. Round 2 was a well earned victory for Raisy, with some exceptional plays, including a Ring Out on Clawz, tying up the game 1-1. Same story in Round 3, with Raisy getting exceptional kills to take the lead. Round 4 was a big comeback for Clawz, bringing the game to a deciding round. Round 5 was all about Raisy, getting a clean sweep on Clawz, and takes the map 3-2.

Map 2. Clawz shows his strength as he wins Round 1 3-1, including winning a fight with just 1 HP. Round 2 was more of the same, with Clawz winning 3-1. Round 3 was also more of the same, with Clawz winning 3-1, and sweeping Ruins of Sarnath 3-0.

Map 3. Round 1 was quick for Clawz, Sweeping Raisy 3-0. Raisy answered back with a 3-1 Round 2 win, tying the map up. Round 3 looked like it was all Raisy, but Clawz came from behind, and won the round, due partly to his clever totem placements. Round 4 went to the wire, with Raisy holding on, and forcing a final round. It all comes down to Round 5. Raisy gets the first kill, but Clawz answers with a 3 HP kill and a Totem kill, as well as a quick rocket kill, to finally beat Raisy and advance to Semifinals!

Claws came out of Group A at 2-0, and Raisy came out of Group C as 2-1, meaning both will meet in the opening match on championship Sunday. Both are in the money, a top-four spot is on the line. Both of you have made us proud, best of luck!

Tune in Tomorrow for Day 3!

Saturday. Gameday. The Myztro Team did awesome on Day 2, with 2 of the 4 players moving forward into the Top 8! Catch the recaps under the break.

Day 2: Saturday, October 6th: Group Stages

In the group stages, players keep playing until they are through to the finals (2-0, 2-1) or are Eliminated (0-2, 1-2). The most direct route to the finals is to win both your matches, but if you lose twice, you’re out.   http://quake.pglesports.com/group-stage/

Map 2. Round 1 is lengthy, but it goes to Raisy after coming back from being down a champion 2-1. Round 2 is more of the same, but with a 2-0 Raisy scoreline. Round 3 was huge for Cypher, getting 2 frags before the 30 second mark, and wins the round 3-0. Round 4 was very slow, with Raisy securing the first frag at 3 minutes 30 seconds. Cypher barely pushes Sudden Death, fragging Raisy at the very last second. Raisy secures the final kill on a weak Cypher, and advances.
