Prodota Gaming at China for WCA Finals

UPDATE:
Our run at WCA 2016 LAN finals has come to an end today.

 

As the last Western team standing, we have taken a commendable fourth place finish. After a three-way-tie in the group stages with a 3:1 record, we advanced into the playoffs. First going head to head with with the undefeated ViCi Gaming we lost our first game in the series. Unfortunately, in the second match, the game crash and all players disconnected. The data and game was lost with no way to recover it. At 17 minutes in, ViCi Gaming was leading by 9k gold, experience and kills, thereby receiving the default win as per the rules.

 

We then faced off against WAY in one last best-of-three series for the third place decider. The Chinese team had bested us twice in the group stage and did so once again. Our hats off to them for their victory.

 

We’ll head home proud of our achievement and with much experience gained. Thank you to all that supported us and congrats to our guys!

 


 

We are proud and excited to announce that we have advanced out of the group stage and into the playoffs.

 

The boys started the day off great with a big win, taking down Vega Squadron. They lost the next game to WAY but picked up the pieces and defeated both WarriorsGaming. Unity and then Union Gaming – ending with a 3:1 record.

 

The results put us in a three way tie with WAY and Vega Squadron, but only 2 teams could advance.

 

After Vega lost their tiebreaker against WAY we went up against the CIS squad and destroyed them to knock them out of contention. With a top four place and spot in the playoffs secured, we then faced WAY one more time for our seeding.

 

Unfortunately, we lost again to the Chinese team and have seeded second in the group.
We start tomorrow in the playoffs against ViCi Gaming in the Single Elimination brackets.
