It's CEO yo! With some unfortunate weather problems out of Atlanta, a lot of players (notably EchoFox Theo) were not able to make their pools, so the event ended up a bit smaller then initially planned. However, we still had a ton of matches go down, with Friday running down from pools to Top 8.
We've got a lot of familiar faces battling for those IPS Season 2 points tomorrow:
Tweedy vs. Biohazard
Gross vs. Semiij
Tekken Master vs. Forever King
Sonic Fox vs. Honeybee
Some notable matches/events. Note, there may have been some more cool stuff that went down, this is just what I remembered while I was making this list at work:
*Infinitii beat Slayer in pools, sending him to losers (grainy video with a hype pop-off courtesy of Forever King). If you missed the dealio, Slayer made a joke on Twitter about women not making Top 8s, so Infinitii sending him to losers came off pretty karmic.
*Grr and Tweedy had a hype back and forth set with Tweedy clutching it out in a 3-2 match.
*Forever King had a (just shy of) real master come back to stop himself from getting reversed 3-0'd by Dizzy.
*Burrito Voorhees brought out Grodd in his set with Honeybee.
*I learned that Illusions was not actually related to Honeybee/Biohazard.
*Biohazard devoured the life bar of everyone he played with Bane and had a crazy set against Illusions.
*It was at this point some friends wanted to go see Hereditary. While I love you guys, I also haven't left my apartment in a week.
