The second week of Australian Contenders was a lot of ups and downs. Floats, a modified GOATS comp with Winston and D.va for main tanks, was the flavour of the week. Two veterans of Aussie esports squared up while a set of new teams saw some fun and tense matches.
Australian Contenders kicked off with a fun set of matchups that gave teams new and old a chance to flex their strength. A startling amount of GOATS composition was run; almost every team, it seemed, either started out on it or hurriedly switched to mirror their opponent’s GOATS. Even so, the first week of Contenders Season 3 proved to be an exciting one.
Season 3 of Contenders Australia is right around the corner! The new season kicks off Monday, November 19th and the off-season has been chaotic to say the least. Rebrands, collapses, sneaky roster moves and the sad demise of the Bin Chickens. Rookies fresh off the ladder will be squaring up with old school veterans, and we’ll no doubt see some intense matchups this season.
