Academy Gaming Overwatch Weekly #23 Recap

Academy Gaming Overwatch Weekly #23 Recap

After a crazy turn of events from the previous day’s Realm Hallow’s End tournament, the 23rd installment of the Academy Gaming Overwatch Weekly series brought back many notable teams including the previous week’s winners Helix Esports.  Hammers Esports also made it back into the mix this week along with Velociraptor Gaming to round out the top three seeds.

The round of 8 featured a heavily favored Velociraptor Gaming team facing off with Kungarna, a team who has previously placed within decent standings in recent weeks. Kungarna managed to pull out a massive 2-1 upset and move into the semifinals where they would take on Hammers Esports. Hammers Esports put up their best efforts against the seemingly unstoppable Kungarna, but ended up falling short 2-0 which would end their tournament run.

On the upper half of the bracket, Helix Esports had a smooth path to the finals as they took down The Zookeepers in the round of 8 and handled Momentary in their semifinal matchup both in a 2-0 fashion. With the finals once again fielding Helix Esports, this was the first time Kungarna grabbed a slot in the finals. Helix Esports were atop their game as they had been all tournament and put a hush to the upsets in the lower bracket and would find another 2-0 victory, taking the weekly tournament without dropping a game.
