This game was hyped to be the actual Grand Final with defending champions for the past 2 years Run at Me Bro taking on Tt.GiGA in a Best of Three show down. I can honestly say I felt nervous along with some of the players from both sides before we went live and I can say without a shadow of a doubt the next 2 and a half hours were some of the best i have casted.
Map #1 - Inferno
GiGA got out to an early 7-1 lead but Run at Me Bro(RaMB) weren't about to fold bringing it back at half time to only 1 round at 8-7. This was the tone of the entire match as the shift in momentum would change again seeing a 15-10 lead in favour of RaMB be reduced to 0 at 15-15. IT WAS OVERTIME!!!
Not only did the players go nuts but faithful lanners turned their heads towards the two Projector screens to watch the crazy 6 round to come. After a galigant effort from Tt.Giga RaMB eventually took the heated exchange 19-17 and Map #1.
Map #2 - Tuscan
After an epic game one we thought that RaMB would be able to continue their momentum but Tt,GIGA came out all guns a blazing and made sure that this one was not going to be as easy an easy win. With the early rounds under their belt they seemed to keep coming up short with the rounds being put onto RaMB's score count, but the pressure was still being added by GiGA and was enough to keep rounds ticking over in their favour.
They didnt stop after half time and were greatful to get a close win 16-10. Not as close as map #1 but still close enough to warrant a "GET SOME!!!"" from the guys watching.
Map #3 - Train
This is it. This is the final map of this best of three showdown and both teams have had epic victories. We went to the choo choo's for the decided and Tt.GiGa on the high from map #2 kept and smahed 7 rounds before RaMB could get on the board. Unphased GiGA kept pushing and and was able to end the half only dropping 3 round at 12-3. Defence on train is always considered to be the easist side and was showed why, it was 14-3 and looked to be game over but "OOHHHHHH NOOOOO".
Here comes the come back train and RaMB were driving it all the way into the station. They got all the way back to 14-14 and this was looking to go to overtime in a replay of game #1. With everyone in the hall watching the screen the boys could feel the pressure and Tt.GiGA took the all inport win on the back of an Afendz 2v1 clutch. With a GG on the line the crowd dropped to silence when it was a 1v1. The bomb ticking down and all of it on the line Tt.GiGA came away with a massive win and the cheers could be heard out side.
GG's all round to all players. If this is the quality of play i am so looking forward to the grand final!!
