The Qualifiers for the URAL Steel Championship was held over the weekend to decide the team who will represent SEA to compete in the Finals in Moscow this September. At the start of the Qualifiers on Friday, there were a total of 32 teams which were slowly whittled down to 8 teams on Saturday. By Sunday, only 4 teams remained to slug it out at the Qualifiers Finals on Sunday. They were -Apostles-, Rolling Thunder, Grumpy Old Men and PVP SEA, out of which -Apostles- and Grumpy Old Men managed to pull through past the semi-finals to face off against each other in the Finals.
Team Grumpy Old Men, who was pipped to win because of their successes in the Weekly Rumble tournaments suffered a surprise defeat to the relatively unknown Team -Apostles-. Both teams gave a brilliant showcase of their teamwork and skills during the 3 rounds played and the final score came down to a close 2:1 in favour of -Apostles-.
Team -Apostles- will be going to Moscow to represent SEA in the URAL Steel Championship Finals. We would like congratulate the team on their win and wish them all the best in the Finals!
