After an intense two days, it was a day for the players to let their hair down
The last two days have been intense with close matches, hype moments, and nail-biting scenarios, so it was nice to have the players take a breather and play without the pressure.
The Soulcalibur VI pocket team clash mandates that all the players pick their secondary and tertiary characters to play. Here are how the teams matched up:
- Party wolf/Pantocrator
- Saiyne/Shen Chan
Apr 1, 2021
Skyll/Yoki v Party wolf/Pantocrator
Yuttoto/Myloes v Aelz/Bluegod
Saiyne/Shen Chan v Linkorz/D3xus
Akeopo/Woahhzz v Keev/Thekura
Skyll/Yoki v Yuttoto/Myloes
Linkorz/D3xus v Keev/Thekura
Party wolf/Pantocrator v Aelz/Bluegod
Saiyne/Shen Chan v Akeopo/Woahhzz
Aelz/Bluegod v Linkorz/D3xus
Akeopo/Woahhzz v Yuttoto/Myloes
Yuttoto/Myloes v Linkorz/D3xus
Party wolf/Pantocrator v Saiyne/Shen Chan
As mentioned earlier, this was a chance for the players to relax a bit after a stressful two days. At the end of the day, the duo of Party Wolf and Pantocrator took the tournament after a thrilling win against Shen Chan and Saiyne. We got a chance to see Party Wolf's Astaroth which turned out to be more of a beast than we initially thought.
At the end of the night, analysts, Kayane and HBT Warrior got their chance to shine against the champions and that was a lot of fun to watch. Kayane, an Evo veteran in particular was eye-catching, pushing Pantocrator to his limits before he finally took the game.
The Inferno Issue
For added spice, the WePlay organizers lifted the ban on Inferno, an unlockable character in the game who deals a lot of damage and has been banned in all tournaments. Myloes opened Pandora's box by picking the character and soon everyone wanted to play Inferno. It became immediately clear why the character was banned. It dealt so much damage and only required the most rudimentary skills to be effective. Thankfully, it was all fun and games, and everyone was able to have a good laugh.
Now with that out of the way, we can look forward to what is certainly going to be a stressful playoff. By this time tomorrow night, we'll have the winner of the inaugural WUFL Soulcalibur VI tournament, who do you think it's going to be?
