Standings for top 20:
We're double dipping this week with French tournaments, and this is round 1!
- According to the tournament staff, this event is one of a handful that the French scene have throughout the year to commemorate national holidays (by hosting an event the day before). The one they celebrated with this event is called Ascension Day!
- This event, just five rounds of best of 3 Swiss, was eventually taken by Oblivion, who managed to take the event 5-0!
- Oblivion managed to win all five sets they played by defeating eventual second place finisher Hyrule Clan in round 4 and Tragedy, the fourth place finisher, in round 5! Both Hyrule Clan and Tragedy finished with four set wins and one set loss.

BnS Season 3 Tower Control Edition!
Top Cut Bracket:
Bleck! Here is a Spoon-fed recap of the most recent Bleck n Spoon tournament!
- This event was the most attended Bleck n Spoon tournament since the very first one of the rebranded series!
- Gemini claimed the title, and though may have finished fifth in the Swiss stage, they pulled off a clean sweep of top cut!
- Not only did Gemini topple first seed (and first place finisher in the Swiss stage) Team Upgrade, but they also swept away Yami. The latter won both the Season 0 TC edition and the Season 1 TC edition of BnS!
- One team that is especially noteworthy here is a newer team called "Vinilla", who came in second in the Swiss stage and took Yami to a game 7 in the quarterfinals, so do not be surprised if they make waves moving forward!

French Battle #25
Top Cut Bracket:
Round 2 touring the French community, and while they battle, here is what YOU need to know!
- For those unaware, this event is biweekly in the French scene, alternating with the "FRee Splat Tournament", and for more information on that event's last edition, check out our tourney roundup from last week!
- In this event, Les Extralamars Arctic lost only one match combined between the group stage and top cut in order to claim victory!
- It was a good day overall for the Extralamars clan, as Les Extramalars Zéphyr (after losing to the Arctic team) got a default win in the bronze match after a forfeit from the second place finisher from the Jellyfish Trophee Tournament, Hyrule Clan!

Swift Second Saturdays 6
Top 8 of Main Bracket:
Swift Second Saturdays returned, amidst finals and Mother's Day weekend, and some good teams showed up to duke it out! Here is what went down:
- A newcomer to the Swift Second Saturdays series, Team Olive, defended their top seed by taking down another strong EU team in Chikara 3-2 in grand finals!
- The third and fourth place finishers, however, are no stranger to this series, as TOMO defeated quantuM 3-1 in the bronze match, in what wound up being a rematch of the previous Saturday's grand finals!
- For those unaware, this series also contains "revival brackets", which are second chance brackets for teams that lose in the main bracket. The winner of the Revival Bracket for SSS 6 wound up being Team Anonymous, while Seafood Sorbet defeated Ijisu 3-1 to claim the Max Revival Bracket!

Squid Spawning Grounds 10
Top Cut Bracket:
You guys want a new team tournament? This is one such event! Check out some of these fresh highlights!
- They lost their first set in round 1 of the Swiss stage, but did not lose another one! The ultimate winner, Miruku, swept their first two opponents in top cut and defeated "Big Mood" to claim the tourney win!
- Because of how Swiss tournaments work, you may not know your opponent for sure until the next round is revealed. Perhaps grand finals was foreshadowed a bit when Miruku took down Big Mood 2-1 in round 5.
- The team that finished first in the Swiss stage and third overall wound up as a GanGanGalaxy pickup, a team that has made some waves in other events as well!
