Wet Floor Wednesdays 2

Bracket WFW 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 NNCL Lunar XIII winners NNCL Lunar XIII losers 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.

SCL 51

Bracket SCL 51 finals 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.

Notable highlights:

  • 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.

WFB

    • Team Olive finished third in their group on day 1 and lost in round 1 of bracket on day 2
