Thursday night we went head to head with Area 51 Gaming in the first round of the SC2Clans Premier League playoffs. Area 51 is a very solid team with some really great players and it showed in the CW. We went into the CW as underdogs and did what we could to show everyone that they had it wrong. Here's how that turned out:
Good job to Just and LogiC, but really other than that the rest of the games were rather disappointing. I know we can play better than this and if we want to have a chance at winning the next round, we have to as we're going up against LG. Here's the details for that CW:
LG 4-0'd TaC in their round 1 CW and are looking extremely strong. We need to have a good showing and play well if we want to win this one.
