TRC Dueling Invitational

Post by Jingles » 04 Mar 2021, 16:53

A few months has passed since the launch of the new expansion, Shadowlands. The guild has been very active enjoying all kinds of content and our members have gotten stronger as the expansion has progressed.

To celebrate the efforts of every individual member, the guild invited all members to a dueling competition titled TRC Dueling Invitational, the "RDI"! The tournament was held on the evening 26th of February in the Valley of Kings in Loch Modan.

Twenty members fought off in the tournament, and a few more chose to participate by spectating.

The group stages began. In group A we saw Verania go through with a clean swipe and three victories. Group B was forced to extra matches as Pylori, Takuin and Tsyrius all won two games each, where Takuin drew the longest straw. Group C saw Lanabee go through with a clean swipe and three victories. Group D forced a deciding rematch between Cecil and Taubek, and Taubek came out on top to reach the finals. Group E was a tough one, but after extra matches between Frostie, Arahjin and Aaraleth, the last mentioned headed to the finals.

With the group stage concluded, Verania, Takuin, Taubek, Lanabee and Arahjin fought off to determine the semifinals. Lanabee fought well in the matchups, but didn't manage to go further in the competition.

Exciting semifinals awaited next.

Takuin and Arahjin fought off in the first intense semifinal, where the druid emptied it's tank but was unable to beat the paladin. Takuins victory took him to the grand final.

Taubek and Verania fought off just as intensely. A great game saw the two experienced Battleground players make use of most of their classes abilities, and Verania won this evening making him the second finalist.

Before the grand final, Taubek beat Arahjin to secure 3rd place in the tournament. The grand final was next. Out of the 20 who started the tournament only two remained. With over 25 spectators the grand final commenced between Verania and Takuin. With high stakes the combatans fought of valiantly. Pressure was sure there, as Takuin managed to catch the rogue through stealth a few times. However, Verania was well prepared to recover from mistakes and turned the game around late and managed to beat Takuin.

The grand final of The Raven Council's Dueling Invitational saw the guilds new Champion emerge, and all hailed Verania as the winner of the tournament.
