Av3k and toxjq played each other at QuakeCon 2019, where Av3k managed to win 2:0 in close game, toxjq get his revenge on Stage 1, Week 7 where he won 3:0.

We are starting our game at Blood Covenant, where PL Av3k picked GALENA which is among his strongest champions with 8:3 win rate. Map itself seems good for Av3k as he won 11 times while losing just 3 games.

SE Toxjq choose SLASH as his champion. Knowing that SLASH is quite strong in thes arena as she won 15 out of 29 matches it might be surprising, that against GALENA, she suffer 3 loses. Toxjq dominated 10 times in this arena and lost 6 games here.

Awoken is traditional map that is played among our players, after one win and one lost as DOOM under control of  Av3k, SE toxjq took advantage of first pick and stole it from Polish player. PL Av3k went for "next best pick" and will face his opponent as VISOR. This Champions matchup was played 16 times already with 50:50 outcomes.

Decider map of this match is Ruins of Sarnath. Av3k picked RANGER and toxjq is slowly returning to light champions. This matchup was played on Ruins just once and ANARKI under control of US rapha won that game. If we don`t care about Arena played, ANARKI dominated RANGER 7 out of 8 times.

Av3k lost 4 games out of 7 while toxjq is holding equal score with 5 wins and 5 loses at Sarnath.

CA GNiK and US Effortless have no opportunity to face each other in Quake Pro League. While Effortless is on high wave after 3:0 against CA cha1n last week, GNiK is kind of suffering thru his first matches in Stage 2. GNiK desperetly needs more point to his name, as he is on last position and gap on US whaz starts to be concerning.

We are going to kick off at Awoken, where EISEN and DOOM will fight for the ninth time. EISEN won 5 of those matches. GNiK of TSEB will be under control of Turret Boy, and Effortless will try to face his demise with DOOM from HELL.

Second map will be Vale of Pnath, where RANGER and SORLAG try to fit. RANGER won majority of battles in this arena against SORLAG, but she seems fit to this arena full of acid.

Decider will bring up STROGG and VISOR to Molten Falls. This match will be third time those two champions meet here and we are wondering if Piercing Sight will help Effortless to avoid aggressive style of GNiK and open some opportunities to score his own frags.

Nosfa and cha1n are playing third game against each other, first took place at QuakeCon and nosfa won 2:1. Most recent battle was on Stage 1, Week 3 and nosfa was stronger again with same result 2:1.

Our player will start at Awoken where CA cha1n have good performance as EISEN. BR nosfa have no official record of playing Ranger in this arena, but overall 9:7 score with 87:37 frags speaks for itself. 

We had chance to see CA cha1n practising ATHENA at Molten Falls and his performance seems solid, nosfa will try to answer with GALENA and her pesky totems, that might be devastating for light champions.

BJ and STROGG will face each other on Ruins of Sarnath and BR nosfa himself managed to beat Effortless in this arena under this constellation. But we have in good memory that nerve wracking game between those two players on Stage 1.

UA Xron and RU coollerz played two games against each other. At QuakeCon, Anton won 2:1 and on Stage 1, Week 10 he performed clean sweap 3:0 and left Xron in pieces. Both players seems to be on fire, as Xrons last game against k1llsen was the one to watch and coollerz showed some showmatch stuff against toxjq.

Our game will start on Blood Covenant with GALENA and SLASH as Champions. This matchup was played just once - at QuakeCon where Spart1e run over br1ck with first named champion. Usually we see other champions selected for this arena, but GALENA have quite a record, with 7 victories out of 10 matches. NYX was selected 39 times to support players performance and lead 26 of those matches to happy ending.

Dooi joined Quake Pro League from Challengers, but thanks to his great performance in previous weeks, he is now on 16th position of global leader board. He would definitely love to climb up higher, but whaz have great motivation to score some poins, as he is now struggeling on bottom of the field. Both players never meet in official game, but we expect close battle.

Dooi and whaz are starting on Awoken, where RANGER and DOOM is familiar couple with 22 matches played. DOOM have advantage considering 13 matches was won by this champion, but RANGER of US dooi seems solid pick, as he won both matches played as this Champion. DOOM of US whaz is discutable choise for this player as he fought 6 battles with him and lose 5 of them.

We do see more and more SCALEBEARERS on Molten Falls with US dooi, tradition started by br1ck on QuakeCon now continue and US whaz answered with SORLAG. In very same matchup coollerz managed to stop Xron and we are eager to see what this map will bring to the table.

GALENA and ANARKI will end the match on Blood Covenant we know well, that US dooi`s special tactics are well known and with huge noise ANARKI can produce, his position might be even more prominent. Do you think US whaz can surprise?

World ranking 2 and 8 will face each other in k1llsen vs baSe match. Players that have meet twice and both matches ended up 2:1 in favour of German player.

Ruins of Sarnath was one of those arenas, where RU baSe collected his points and with classic combo NYX vs VISOR we have lots of expectations for this game.

EISEN and RANGER will be second pair of champions and they will meet on Blood Run, map that will be played for first time between both on official tournament.

Last Awoken ended as a mayhem but DE k1llsen switched DOOM for BJ this time. BaSe will use ATHENA and joined group of few tht are willing to take her for a flyby in this map.

Top notch team kill battle of Myztro Bois will be seventh game of Sunday Game Day. RAISY and vengeurR are well established within community and they are fourth and fifth respectively on leader bord with just 5 points of difference. Bois played each other just once at QuakeCon and RAISY won that game 2:0 but we can expect crazy game, as Marco had alot of time practising and he swiped all his enemies so far 3:0 in Quake Pro League, Stage 2.

Awoken will present NYX and DOOM, in previous games DOOM won 2 of 3 games, but main question under this constellation is whether Italian player will have chance to incorporate some Berzerk to deny time shards, or will build his game plan knowing that #InvisibleBiatch will be using shadows every 15 or 20 seconds.

Map two will be Corrupted Keep, played for first time on Week 4 with BJ and RANGER. BJ worked great for RAISY in Lucca, but was also part of his demise on Finals. HU RAISY made this arena his home winning dozen of 15 games here and support by Champion selection need to be take into account as well, as BJ won 19 of 30 games he played on Corrupted Keep. We dont want to take IT vengeurR our of equation as he won 8 out of 12 games In the Keep, but RANGER is not offering Helping Hands as this Champion lost 11 of 16 games there.

Decider will be played at Vale of Pnath and RAISY managed to get CLUTCH for 16th time. He won all but one games with this champion previously! RAISY have his ClutchOnly account with almost 30 hours in game.

His opponent will be EISEN and we are more than eager to re-watch Lore extension live performed by Myztro bois.

Rapha and dramiS will conclude Sunday matches and I am hyped to see US dramiSes performance this week, as his last game against US DaHanG was absolutely crazy.

Rapha is so far on clean swap owning both US dooi and US cha1n 3:0 and even tho he arrived light weight to this match, we know that he figured out most of the champions in the pool.

Both players meet at QuakeCon and we saw close game on Ruins of Sarnath, that is starting map for this Stage 2 duel and more convincing Corrupted Keep, that we will see as well, leading to 2:0 victory for Rapha

Both players vent for speed and agility, but every one choose in different department. Light weight SLASH under control of rapha will face heavy SORLAG. Rapha is picking SLASH for 6th time with 3 victories under his belt and dramiS is no stranger to SORLAG as well, as he played seven official games with her. 

Corrupted Keep with ANARKI and RANGER will be for sure match to watch and I dont dare to speak about grand finale on Awoken with NYX and ATHENA.
