After winning their various country qualifiers, teams iCutTrees (Malaysia) & Raviance (Philippines) were flown in to join team 4Derps (Singapore) in their conquest for glory.
All 3 teams played against each other once in a round robin, best-of-3 format (KOF-Rounds-KOF). Neither team were eliminated at this point but the team that topped this round robin (Raviance) was given the benefit to skip 1 match in Phase 2 & leapfrog directly to the finals which would guarantee them at least a 1st Runners-Up position. Teams 4Derps & iCutTrees came in 2nd & 3rd respectively at this juncture. Were all of the guns blazing at this point or was it simply just a warm-up?
Teams 4Derps & iCutTrees faced off again in the opening match of phase 2, with Raviance carefully observing their potential next opponents in the audience seats. iCutTrees fell short & 4Derps setup a finals fixture with Raviance in a best-of-5 series.
During the finals, both 4Derps & Raviance clearly showed their strengths - 4Derps excelled in the KOF mode while Raviance reigns supreme in the Rounds mode. In the end, it all boiled down to the final KOF & final matchup whereby 4Derps edged the win with a 5% HP difference!
