Match 1: Conquerors v Matildas 4:0

The Conquerors came out of the gates swinging against the Matildas, putting on a solid display across all four games. The Matildas did their best to hold strong in game three and put a stop to the win streak of the Conquerors, with an impressive performance from Vale and Toasted. Unfortunately however, they couldn’t stop the well oiled machine that was the Conquerors, with some great play by Pebblez pulling off an incredible game in the TVP in the last game of the series pulling just under 4,000 damage done in the Czech wonder. The Conquerors took the series in a 4:0 sweep.

Match 2: Skorpions v Sentinels 1:3

The Sydney Derby was quite the series to behold. The Sentinels looked absolutely unstoppable for the first two games on the Skorpions home map Ruinberg. The entire Sentinels team put in work, all doing around 2,000 damage in game two, with RainbowRowendy and Syndy putting in work in game one. Unfortunately JT was caught out one too many times and heavily punished at the start of both games on Ruinberg, however there was a spark of hope with JT going up against Zanin in a heart stopping 1 v 1 standoff. Unfortunately for JTZanin managed to take the game, and the Skorpions went down to the Sentinels 1:3

Match 3: Archers v Panthers 2:2

The first match on Mines nearly gave everyone a heart attack, with Ice from the Panthers managing to destroy Blaze holding strong in his 60TP with 0.5 seconds left on the clock in a game that no-one saw turning out in such a way. The Panthers managed to win the second game a bit more comfortably, giving them the lead 0:2 at the halfway mark. Himmelsdorf was to follow and the Archers managed to clutch a reverse sweep over the Panthers, with an impressive 3,500 damage game from twoplustwo in the final game, ending the series in a 2:2 draw.

Match 4: Action X v Comets 2:2

The match that would have catapulted one of these teams to a great spot on the leaderboard, and the result most likely a realisation of this. Both teams fought incredibly hard, and were very evenly matched. Methodical games was the tone of this series, with neither team willing to send it in a risky strategy to try to force a guaranteed win. The Action X were looking for the win at game four, with the 2:1 lead, but an fantastic display by Dark with CJ anchoring the defence in the Strv 103B proved too hard for the Action X to crack, with the Comets pulling back the series in a 2:2 draw.

Week Four Leaderboard

The Archers have rocketed up to the top of the leaderboard, however, they are followed closely by the Bulldogs and the Skorpions, it is still absolutely anyone’s game. The Conquerors, Panthers and Comets all sit one win away from the top spot as well, with the Action X and Matildas going to have to dig deep and show what they’re made of to get the win, with plenty of time to still prove they can. This week will shift the leaderboard around a lot, and it’ll be exciting to see where each team stands after the games have finished.
