WARNING: May contain traces of opinion!
The 17th edition of SauerDuels has completed successfully. It saw 11 participants signing up with all best active FFA players showing up. There were two groups of 5 and 6 players and 2 players from each group would go directly to final stage.
Big props to both guys for playing and streaming their games!
As notas pointed out, this tourney was full of great FFA players:
Group A saw the current champion Redon (from sQ clan) placed with 2 legends and old-timers Honzik1 and degrave, both being part of RB clan. One of ex FFA champions, Frosty was also there alongside with BudSpencer and ZCrone.
Group B was lead by American FFA players: notas, swatllama, Lokio. With raffael and h8 being part of the group as well.
This group saw many close games. The Russian terminator degrave seemed rusty and finished 4th. Frosty didn’t manage to win Honzik1 or Redon and finished 3rd. Redon and Honzik1 emerged as 1st and 2nd placed from group A.
Just like in other group, we had a lot of tense games in this group as well. One of the first games was full of tension, with notas making a comeback against Lokio on hades and winning it 28:26. Then he was surprised by raffael on corruption. However, notas would go on and win all of this remaining games and finish the group as 1st. swatllama managed to win the nail-biter against Lokio on metl2 after an overtime. After that h8 almost made the biggest surprise and was leading against notas on metl3, but didn’t manage to maintain his lead till the end. He fought bravely for someone without a proper mouse! Disappointment of group was Lokio. Some of us hoped he could reach the finals and even win the tourney, maybe next time..
In first semifinals Redon barely won against swatllama on corruption with score of 27:25. In other semifinals, once again, metl2 was played and we saw another close game between notas and Honzik1, with notas coming as winner – 36:34.
Fight for 3rd place saw an amazingly close game with Honzik1 emerging victorious against swatllama.
In grand finals, two FFA titans played, current titleholder Redon and notas. Redon picked tumwalk and he managed to win it with score 35:25. Next map was picked by notas, and by no surprise the choice was nmp8. This time, notas managed to win, and he did it in last few seconds. Final score was 25:24. Third and final map was metl2, and Redon won it 49:39. This is his 6th FFA title in row.
Big thanks to everyone for watching the games and of course, thanks to players for participating:
