The second edition of the 16Bit One Nighters Cup that took place last night was won by a mix team consisting of players from Masters and Operator taking down in the finals MaleModels with the following scores: Badlands 6-1 and Granary 4-2.
Masters unfortunately announced that they could not partake in the Cup due to some players not being available. As a result of this in the early hours of Sunday a mix team was arranged consisting of experienced players from Operator (enemy – Wir – Kaboos – seamonkey ) and from Masters ( Warhammy – Goldfox – Turbz – Randomsaurus).
The results of the first 2 rounds were as follows:
- Masters/Operator vs Fags 3-0
- iMpulse gaMing vs Fury 5-4
- Vintage vs KKNP 5-0
- MaleModels vs pcZ 5-0
- Masters/Operator vs iMg 5-0
- Vintage vs MaleModels 0-5
The mix team under the leadership of enemy had a bit of shaky start as they beat Fags 3-0 who seemed to give them a decent challenge for the 1st round of the Cup. In the other matches iMpulse Gaming made an impressive comeback from 1-4 down to beat Fury 5-4, the rest were quite straight forward with Vintage vs KKNP, winning 5-0 and MaleModels vs pcZ, taking the victory by 5-0.
In round 2 there weren’t any upsets either with Masters/Operator beating iMg 5-0 and MaleModels beating Vintage 5-0, therefore setting up the most likely teams to be at the finals.
Round 3 Finals
The 1st map for the final to be played was Badlands and the Masters/Operator mix team managed to take the edge on this map as enemy’s mastermind gameplay managed to deal a lot of damage making it easier for the team to get kills and almost cruise on the map after leading 3-0, MaleModels managed to pull one round back 3-1 and after some back and forth challenges Master/Operator got back on track to set the game 6-1 and win the first map.
Then Granary was chosen as 2nd map and the match started quite strong for MaleModels managing to wipe mid point battle and cruising to get the 1st round of the map, this was starting to be a very tight game with both teams keeping things very entertaining with back and forth battles at mid and last points but after some exchanges of round and the game up to 2-2 once again Masters/Operator took the edge to lead the match 3-2 and kept that momentum (thanks to some Warhammy’s spy medic kills) to make it 4-2 with 8 minutes to go, after that we saw very intense gameplay from both teams but Masters/Operator managed to keep the game in control until the end to take the top spot of the 16 Bit TF One Nighters Cup II.
Congratulations to Masters/Operator!
Even though we cannot say that Masters kept the title this Cup will give us a couple of things to think about… Can Masters full rosters beat the rest? If Operator makes a full comeback can they outperform the current top teams? Or will MaleModels bounce back with an improved performance? Well the only way to find out is in the next tournament and if all these teams can be there with their full rosters.
Thanks to all the participating teams and keep it up people!!!!
