Hybrid Theory started out strong with a 5-4 win in game 1 and found themselves a goal away from a trip to the Championship with a 4-2 lead in game 2, but it was all Next Dimension from there. Next Dimension scored 3 straight to win game 2 in yet another 5-4 game, and then cruised to 5-1 victory in game 3. The series was fantastic and was a great way to kick off the playoffs.
One of the best parts of this stream was the debut of Kenny aka TheSpartaCat running the broadcast and showing off a slick new scoreboard and some awesome camera work. I can’t put into words how awesome the stream looked so click the link below and go back and watch it. The broadcast lasted just over 90 minutes. After you’ve watched it, send Kenny some love for being awesome!
Now, onto the next matchup. The #2 seed Vital Signs faces #3 seed Impulse on Thursday Night Grifball at 9est. In a similar comparison to the Hybrid Theory and Next Dimension matchup, we have a very tank heavy Vital Signs team facing off against a team with strong chemistry and playmaking in Impulse. Impulse took off running to start the season and it was only a late season stumble that let Next Dimension take the top seed from them. Vital Signs had a somewhat up and down season and a big mid-season change when they traded Ouglaf for QueenCatori to add even more tanking power to the team.
Impulse appears to be the favorites going into the match up but you can never count out a team with Rain on the roster as his consistent tanking dominance can open up opportunities for his teammates to come up big. Impulse is centered around Tonga and Galvanator being arguably the top duo in the league with very capable tanks to round out the roster allowing the duo to do what they do best. Next Dimension awaits their competitor! Come find out who it’ll be at 9est on Thursday Night Grifball!
That’s going to do it for me today, later this week there will be more info on the league in general, keep your eyes open.
