Well, what an emotional rollercoaster of a weekend it has been and a weekend we have only just started recovering from here at Myztro.
After a heartbreaking first day in the Duel Category that saw all our competitors knocked out of the running to play at QuakeCon, all our hopes were placed on qualifying for Team Sacrifice on the Sunday of the Quake World Championship Regional Finals.
After a good start vs. Alliance (Spart1e, strenx, syndrom, Busdriverx) in Team Sacrifice, Myztro moved within one game of qualifying for QuakeCon, unfortunately a tough match against NOTOFAST (notcis, fazz, stermy, tox) delayed the celebrations.
After losing to NOTOFAST and dropping down to the loser bracket, a nail biting bout against Miasma! (dem0n, ddk, Juven1le, Lithz) awaited. The last matchup of the EU Regional finals and our last chance to qualify for the grand finals at QuakeCon. After a very closely fought contest between the two teams, Myztro flipped the switch in the last couple of rounds which secured our road to QuakeCon. Any sceptics that don’t think Quake Champions Sacrifice Mode is a fun to watch need only view this matchup.
The passion and dedication shown by our team has been incredible and can clearly be seen with how the team celebrated after the match.
