Saturday Update & Gossip

Early start today as Nexus had an 8am game, first up on the pro-field, before the webcast was even going.  So, on site for 7 so Pit Boss Pete could sort them out.  They had a hard game against Damage picking up just one point.

Next up were Relentless in their last 24 game, despite being 2-1 up with 2 minutes left on the clock Relentless lost the next point and the subsequent overtime point failing to make the last 16 cut.

Back to the pro-field for the final Nexus game Vs X-Factor, with myself ans fello photographer Steve ‘Merv TV’ Wilson on opposing team rosters.  It took some time for Nexus to start countering the Texas boys with a late comeback seeing them put up 3 points on the scoreboard against a total of 6 from X-Factor.

In other news, Armageddon Entity forfeited all their games on Friday due to a roster infraction and all the players from Guatemala and the UK being banned for the event, with the illegal player being banned for a whole year.

All UK hopes rest on Twizz and Fluffy Bunnies who finished Friday top of the pile and are straight through  to the finals on Sunday, despite a controversial play from Twizz himself who made a massive run-through to grab the flag only to be declared dirty when hanging it and incurring a major penalty, after a long, and at sometimes, heated discussion with the filed refs, other team, and the PSP official.  It remains to be seen if the Bunnies play Twizz in the final.

Twizzle, pre-rampage.
