Wet Floor Wednesdays 2
Bracket What we learned:
- TOMO, one of the top teams in Splatoon 1, proved they can still be a strong opponent, taking down second seed Spicy Kraken Rolls (SKR) and top seed Eclipse (twice) to come away with the win.
- Following their win in Frozen Ink 9, ZOOOM got a respectable 4th place after winning sets from an EnviZion pickup (Envurgacy) and SKR.
NNCL Lunar XIII
Bracket Areas of note:
- Saikai as strong as ever: Defeating what was essentially NNCL defending champ Eclipse and a pickup team of Bran, Nasz, Ant, and Ice, they claim another tourney victory.
- This was the most teams an NNCL tournament has seen since Splatoon 2 released.
Bracket Note: This was a groups to single elimination bracket tournament and the above image is the latter portion of the event. For information on the group stage, please see the bracket linked above.
- InC Sorrow, in their first tournament both as a team and after gaining a sponsorship came away with the tournament victory in grand fashion, losing only one game to FINALLY, Extermination, and [qM] quantuM in finals bracket.
- Keep in mind, Sorrow is made up of primarily former Extermination members, and they claimed the first tournament set between old and current Ext members 3-1.
- In the same fashion as NNCL, this and SCL 50 (with 40 entrants) represent the highest attendance consecutive SCL tournaments have had since SCL 23 and SCL 24 in September 2016.
- Eclipse Konton made up for their disappointing performance in NNCL the night before with a solid fourth place finish, narrowly edging OverTake! and orKs E-sport.
Note: The group stage Google Sheets is in Japanese.
What you need to know:
- Libalent Calamari, the winners of the first Inkergalactic Cup, took down six teams to come out a winner.
- For Western teams, both Set to Destroy and Team Olive made it out of the group stage:
- Team Olive finished third in their group on day 1 and lost in round 1 of bracket on day 2
- Set to Destroy finished first in their group on day 1 and top 8 overall, losing to eventual second place finisher しょーもなGames on day 2
