Finals Recap

MT8 | 1437 vs Toil3t | GFI 0-0

The finals opened up with METAT8’s 1437 going up against GuildFi’s Toil3t. An aggressive first round from 1437 got Toile3t’s tank down to 27 HP. However, an aggressive mid-game combo from Toil3t’s middle reptile quickly shifted the game in GameFi’s favor to take the first win of the finals.

MT8 | Seb vs Toil3t | GFI 0-1

Seb was the next one in line for METAT8, with GameFi having a one-game lead. In round three, Seb executed a perfectly calculated Trispikes combo from his midlane reptile and took out Toil3t’s backliner Dual Anemone Aqua in Round 3. Seb never looked back after that and was able to equalize the finals at one apiece.

MT8 | Seb vs Arthit_M | GFI 1-1

Arthit_M is the second player for GameFi and looks to take back the lead after the Seb equalizer. The same Trispike combo that Seb pulled out was able to hit the backline once again. However, this time, the Arthit’s backliner was a virtually immortal zigzag plant Tank and was able to take the hit and live through Seb’s combo. Withstanding that flurry of cards, Seb found himself too far behind to come back from as Arthit_M’s beast quickly swept through the last two Metat8 reptiles to be one win shy of the championship.

MT8 | Elijah vs Arthit_M | GFI 1-2

Down once again, Metat8’s championship aspirations once again fall on the shoulders of their captain, Elijah, as he looks to complete yet another comeback win for the crown. Arthit_M opened the game, switching his backliner tank from the previous match to the frontlines and moving the rest of the team back one place to adjust to Elijah’s team.

The battle opened up with both backline beasts chewing into the opposing tanks. But when Elijah was able to knock out Arthit_M’s tank in round 2, that opened up the bug and beast Axies behind it to Elijah’s midlane aqua. The game went neck to neck with both backlance beast Axies going against each other. Elijah had the upper hand with one more energy than Arthit_M, but Arthit_M had the speed advantage. Elijah escapes the critical and ended up with the win to force a winner-take-all finals game.
