Week 2 of the Broadcaster Invitational is now complete. This weekend saw matches from Asia Pacific, Europe, South and North America. For those who finished first in their respective regions, they earned themselves an auto-berth into the Live Finals at TwitchCon, while the 2nd through 21st qualified for the Online Finals this upcoming Saturday, September 29th on twitch.tv/BroadcasterRoyale.
Starting in Asia, we saw a hard fought, five rounds. Despite KappaPride’s (smallponhs and arb1terlul) miraculous 16 Kills in game 1, it was the Ones (lastver and yuukid__) who’s game 5 Chicken Dinner and 352 points propelled them to a narrow 27 point victory in the end. Seven teams earned more than 1000 points, making Asia our closest region of the weekend.
In Europe consistency was the order of the day. The winning duo of Winghaven and Koldamenta finished no lower than 5th across five games. With placements that good and 22 kills (good for 3rd highest), they cruised to a victory with 1439 points over MakataO and Recrent.
We kicked off Sunday with a South American bloodbath. Your best team of the day was John Secrets (fiend_s2 and Sh4DoWW), and while they may have decent points for placement it was their incredible 29 kills that truly set them ahead of the pack. In the end they took the region with a week-high 142 point advantage over second place EcowBlex (ecoww and pablex77).
The week finished in North America, which saw Dude Where’s My Kar wrack up 1675. In terms of placement, they may have been 3rd, but when each kill is worth 17 they add up quickly. The Dudes had 15 kills in their second game alone, which more than made up the distance. Over 45% of TheBearJewLive and croopadoop’s points came from kills (the highest ratio of any winner in week 2).
