The final week of the regular season ended with some spectacular matches. Mindfreak unexpectedly upset opponent team Legacy, barely claiming fourth place and a playoffs spot. A tight set of matches saw Blank lose to Athletico and Breakaway lose to Heist, but both teams still qualified. Sydney finished the season with a final 4-0, going an incredible 20 maps without a loss, and Order flexed their muscles by decimating the Melbourne Mavericks. Meanwhile, Kanga and Freshman Class unfortunately ended the season here, unable to make it into the Quarterfinals. Check out the details of each match below!
The penultimate week of Contenders Australia season 3 was about as one-sided as it can get. Group A saw overwhelming victories to the strongest teams – 4-0’s to Sydney, Athletico and Blank all took their wins with decisive force. Heist, Melbourne, and Order all took similarly strong wins, leaving the lower tier teams in quite the predicament. At this point in the season, we’re seeing teams confirm their positions for playoffs. The top four from each group will qualify for quarterfinals, while the remaining two teams from each group will be forced to return to Trials and qualify for next season all over again.
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.
