epic25: Two More Lower Bracket Rounds
After the successes of the Upper Bracket Finals here at epic25, the Lower Bracket moved on and passed through the Lower Bracket Final.
The Lower Bracket Semi Finals took place first, with CeX taking on Lifts? in the first game. The two teams ended up playing three close maps, with Train starting the series off, eventually falling 16-10 in favour of CeX. Nuke followed, and this time Lifts? picked up the map in this series, taking a much closer 16-13 win on the notorious map. Inferno ended the best-of-three, with a decisive 16-5 win for CeX.
Madeeka taking on BaronsMoneyCrew followed, with all three maps being close between the two teams. Overpass was the opener, with Madeeka taking first blood in the series with a 16-10 win. BaronsMoneyCrew weren’t to fall out of the bracket at this stage, taking a close 16-14 win on Mirage, followed by another close 16-13 win on Cache.
The Lower Bracket Final followed, with CeX taking on BaronsMoneyCrew. This match was much less close than the previous two, with CeX making their way forward with a 16-7 win on Cache before completing the series with a 16-9 win on Inferno.
