I’m sure Gil Scott-Heron will forgive me for that headline. Possibly. Maybe.
Our Round 3 feature match was Cyber Revolution versus Essence!
Essence got off to a strong start against local favourites Cyber Revolution, up 8-4 early on. But some clutch play from dum0re in round 14 of the match with two separate bomb-carrier kills helped cRev finish the first half at 8-8.
cRev’s momentum carried through in the second half, with a strong economical advantage and tight play letting them finish the match 16-9.
And with that, the group stage is complete! Glockwork and Lineage have been eliminated. In the first of the elimination stages, our feature match on stream will be Essence against Kyente and Eclips69, with Complex Anomaly facing off against True North in the other bracket! The winner of Essence/Eclips69 will move on to face the undefeated Memory Express, while cRev stares down the winner of Complex/True North!
Stay tuned to our Twitch channel for all the action as the Elite X Invitational Series rolls on!
