Hafu Invitational – Omega Strikers’ First High Elo Tournament
Here's the format and teams to watch out for in the first high-elo Omega Strikers tournament on Saturday, September 24th at 12pm Pacific Time!
The bracket stage will start as a best of 3 and then move to a best of 5 for the semis and finals. All 8 teams will start in the upper bracket. Since it is double elimination, teams can lose up to once, drop to the lower bracket, and win out to clinch the title. The $10,000 prize pool will be split among the highest placing teams.
The current team to watch is the expected favorites, G33ke, Gingerpop, and Lumost, who’ve won 2 alpha playtest tournaments together. Other potential favorites that could make a showing are Megaverse's (current global rank 1) team of himself, Griffin, and Dixon or the other well-performing alpha playtest team composed of LOLJSS, Vaughn, and Bobadex, who've placed 3rd, 1st, and 2nd in alpha playtest tournaments.
As for the rest of the teams, we'll have to wait and see! Since this is the very first high-elo tournament (happening just 7 days after the launch of open beta as well), team captains will have to scramble to find teammates they synergize well with to compete alongside them in this invitational.
Finally, all the action will be hosted by Hafu, Ovilee, and Ender on Hafu’s Stream on Saturday, September 24th at 12pm Pacific Time! Lastly, if you want to continue to stay up to date on Omega Strikers esports, join my esports focused Omega Strikers discord here!
