G’day, Forts fans!
Huge congrats to Noobs Confirmed for winning a huge tournament! Tournament XVII was the largest ever and our first 4v4. Their path to victory got off to a bumpy start, needing to pull off a stunning comeback against Genesis down 2 bases to 4 to avoid plummeting down into the losers bracket. After narrowly avoiding a first round loss they ultimately emerged undefeated, overcoming their opponents, barrages of cannons and warheads, and everything else that stood in their way (including timezones) to claim the title and medals.
Crustacean Fortification did not go gently to close the day in 2nd place but lightning in the form of a cannon round struck as it threaded the needle to score an early elimination and they were unable to recover. In 3rd place Facharbeiter clawed their way back into contention after an early loss to the Crustaceans only to face them again in the finals of the losers bracket where falling teammates put an end to their run.
