Day 2 of the MLG/Doritos Combine was full of gamers realizing their dreams were getting that much closer to not happening. Frantic game play for most gamers did occur. However, there were many teams in 4v4 that were holding their own. 196 Teams started the day with many separating themselves from the rest of the pack.
And that my friends is hard to do. There are over 1000 gamers throwing to this tournament and with that level of competion you have to make every second count. Nerves were the name of the day as the 4v4 started off with some impressive game play and some near upsets of the higher seeds. Some prevailed while others were left to think what might have been. That’s the hard part about playing in the 4v4 series, if your teammate has an off day, it can affect the whole outcome of the match. Most teams looked ready to go, strategy was overheard between teams and the coaches. Sunday is what it’s all about.
Day 3 will tell the tale as Adrenaline, the FFA Champ, and his team Impact can truly wreak the havoc that everybody is expecting. Adrenaline came into the tournament more focused on the 4v4 match-ups, but came away so far with the FFA title and a little boost of confidence as he heads into the second portion of his weekend. But you can be certain that no team will go down with a fight. If there is one thing I have learned while watching this tournament is that none of these young people even have the word quit in their vocabulary.
