G’day, Forts fans!
Congratulations to team XDXDXD winners of Tournament XX!
Only the top players from previous ranked seasons qualified for tournament entry and the concentration of talent was intense. Individually team XDXDXD‘s members hold first and second place for the last four ranked seasons. That’s counting only the first two players from their roster by the way. With a dream team like this assembled did anyone else stand a chance? Or should they have just gone ahead and handed them the trophy?
Not so fast.
Three other teams were willing to meet the challenge despite the odds against them. And in match four Nerf Nukes shocked XDXDXD sending them down into the lower bracket to face Base Erasers if they wanted to reach the finals. After regrouping and surviving the best of three they came roaring back into the finals for a rematch against Nerf Nukes. Staring down sudden death and needing two wins to Nerf Nuke’s one, they survived an epic Close Quarters slugfest that went the distance before sealing the win on Squirrel’s Peak. In doing so they also became the first team to win a tournament after being knocked into the lower bracket. Congratulations!

And an honourable mention to team Hodge Pogs, who were willing to dive in when everyone else was too intimidated and whose unconventional tactics came perilously close to producing an upset.
