So, Triathlon is finally over, congratulations go out to the Besserman 6 who defeated Team Veneration with a narrow 6-4 victory in Bomb Mode on Casa and winning the 100 USD towards their server fees.
Thanks go out to all the people and teams who made this competition possible, thanks guys make sure you are around next time we do this so we can make sure the kinks are mostly worked out.
Speaking of kinks check out this thread and give your suggestions for how to make Triathlon better next time we play it.
After a three and a half week group stage involving teams being upset, dominating, playing close fought matches and unfortunately even dropping out. We are finally here at the playoff elimination stage of the tournament.
The top three teams from each group continue, with the top team from each group getting to sit while the 2nd and 3rd ranked teams from each group fight it out to see who plays that 1st seed.
We would like to thank all teams for participating in the Triathlon and expect to see another one soon with more improvements :)
