Tournament Recap

         An interesting LAN where we held the group stage in 2 seperate rooms. For this LAN we had to tackle the logistical challenge of a 3-way-tie in group stages for the first time. We ultimately decided upon the Guantlet Rule, where the edge was given to the team who would normally advance out of groups by technicallity but every team had a chance to fight for their way out of groups. Even though the team that would've normally advanced anyways ended up winning the Guantlet, everyone walked away happy feeling like they had decided their own fate.
         In the first round of the bracket stage, eventual winners Procrastination Station were able to flex their muscles when jungler Ponderous Sealion and mid laner and Nerd Bird legend LP T Pizzle revealed their deadly combination of Master Yi and Zilean- a nightmarish combination that resulted in a 600 movement speed unkillable, unslowable Master Yi with a bomb on his head. After getting a pentkill and completely destroying their opposition in that game, Master Yi would be banned away from them for the remainder of the tournament. This tournament would mark the beggining of LP T Pizzle's dominance in Nerd Bird events.
