How Kungarna, SK Gaming and Team Liquid reached the top

Kungarna opened the Sunday matches with a battle against Bugs in the Nagrand Arena, taking down the opposing team’s Shaman for the first point. The action continued in Hook Point, and after narrowly escaping death, Bugs’ Elemental Shaman fought back with Lava Burst. However, it was all for naught, as he was taken down with the help of Mindgames and double the Kidney Shots. Although Bugs prevented a clean sweep in Ruins of Lordaeron, it wasn’t enough as Kungarna claimed victory in Ashamane’s Fall.

Next, SK Gaming clashed against Casual Dads, with the latter team earning the first point. The Priests from both teams were low on mana, but after Casual Dads stabilized their Mage with healing, they pushed forward and took down SK Gaming’s Mage. Despite the loss, SK Gaming bounced back in Ashamane’s Fall and Hook Point. The last game between SK Gaming and Casual Dads took place on the Tiger’s Peak map, and the latter team went for crowd control against SK Gaming’s Priest and Mage. However, SK Gaming’s Mage turned it around, using Polymorph on the enemy Priest, which soon pressured out an Ice Block from the enemy Mage. The game ended with a score of 3-1 for SK Gaming, earning them a combined total score of 4-0 on the WoW AWC Circuit leaderboard.

As for Team Liquid, they went up against the Golden Guardians on day two of the tournament. The first battle between them happened in the Nagrand Arena, with Team Liquid taking down the enemy Priest thanks to the help of their Frost Death Knight. Team Liquid then pushed forward with another point via Ashamane’s Fall. The match point between Team Liquid and the Golden Guardians took place in the Dalaran Sewers, and Team Liquid played aggressively for the victory by taking down the enemy Hunter right as he used Aspect of the Turtle in hopes of deflecting attacks and mitigating damage.
