GentleNinja: Pyrious: Some stats: Most popular item bans: St Ulrich's Bones, Double-Edged Sword, Howling Pain, Vibrant Pain, Instant Snowman, Aegis Of The Defender. Honorable mentions: Snitrick's Last Stand, Runestone, Asmod's Telekinetic Chain. Most popular card bans: Greater Heal, Vengeance, Mass Frenzy, Telekinesis. Honorable mentions: Altruism, Nimble Strike, Blind Rage, Smoke Bomb. Most Popular team comp: 2 warriors 1 priest Warriors usually dwarf. Muscle-through boots and frenzy spam with frenzy aura was a popular choice. All out attack was also very popular. We also had many triple wizard players and they eliminated many of the high elo players on early stages of the tournament by taking advantage of banning system!(veng, nimble, smoke bomb...) Highlight of the Tourney: For me this was the best match played in tournament. Played in grand finals Pyrious vs Mitsuaki. Commentary of @CT5 on mentioned video - HERE Most often banned maps were: Arena Blade and Pools of War. I thought Arena Pit would get banned the most, but was wrong! Wizard players banned Battle Henge most often (I would have used burst... smh). Arena Blade: Pools of War: Battle Henge: Least banned map: Pillars of Suffering Crowd favorite map: Cat's Eye This was an epic tournament and I had lots of fun spectating games and seeing many unique strategies. I hope participants also had fun. That's all for now!
