Week Two continued all the exciting action we saw in Week One, but the matches weren’t quite as even as they were last time, with a number of teams taking big 3-0 victories.
Bracket 1: Nike defeated monkaS 3-0, but monkaS didn’t go down easily, forcing a close overtime on Route 66. Still In Beta had a strong tournament debut as they topped Violent Violets 2-1. Belladonna had the bye this week.

Bracket 2: This week’s matchups were both close! In the end, Aris came out ahead of Redemption 2-1, in three very exciting rounds. And although Lotus topped Cookie Bytes 2-1, Cookie Bytes didn’t go down easily, with Route 66 going to a 4-3 overtime matchup in their favor. Team Maeby had the bye this week.

Bracket 4: The forfeits of OSC Gray and Wolfsbane gave both Vivacity and Huutista 3-0 wins by default, respectively. Arum took their match against NuQa 3-0 as well.
Bracket 1: Nike finished Week Two in first place with 10 points, and Still in Beta jumped readily to second with 6 points. Belladonna is in third with 4 points, while Violent Violets and monkaS bring up the rear with 2 points apiece.
Bracket 2: Aris is well ahead of the pack with 10 points to hold first place. Team Maeby, Lotus, and Redemption are neck-and-neck with one another, each with 4 points in the middle of the standings. Cookie Bytes is in last place, but not too far behind, with 2 points.
Bracket 3: It’s a close race as Chickpeas has 10 points in first place, with Supernova right behind with 8 points and TM Esports with 6. Don’t count Blink Strike out just yet, though, as you’ll see in the Week Three preview.
Bracket 4: Arum and Huutista finished the week tied for first place with 12 points each. NuQa and Vivacity have 6 points each.
Week Three Preview
Bracket 1: Still in Beta has already concluded their match against monkaS, taking a 3-0 victory and a strong 10 points to tie Nike for first place. Nike will be going for sole possession of first place against Belladonna, who will be coming off their bye week looking to play catch-up. Violent Violets has the bye this week.
Bracket 2: Team Maeby has a huge opportunity to make a play for the lead and break the three-way tie in the middle of the bracket when they play first-place Aris. Lotus and Redemption, the other two teams involved in that tie, will be trying to get ahead of one another. Cookie Bytes has the bye this week.
Bracket 3: Blink Strike gets a 3-0 victory by default due to Taco Truck‘s forfeit, which ties them with TM Esports for third place. TM Esports will be playing Supernova, and with first-place Chickpeas on a bye and only +2 over second place and +4 over third place, both these teams have a huge opportunity to take the lead.
Bracket 4: All the matchups are done! NuQa‘s 3-0 victory over Huutista created a three-way tie for first place in this bracket. Then, Arum and Vivacity squared off, with Vivacity looking to make it a four-way tie and Arum going for a huge lead on their opponents. In the end, Arum emerged the victor 2-1, which puts them alone in first place.
