Noble Tweedy Wins #KombatCup: The Runback II
Last night, Noble Tweedy claimed the victory in our second Runback event for Kombat Cup!
Out of around 135 players, the final eight consisted of 75% returning faces and 25% new blood. In fact, NightBringerTBom was able to break into the Top 4 after a victory over 2eZ before ultimately losing to Rewind, a player who’d seen a monumental amount of growth throughout the second season of Kombat Cup. As for STB Dezda, he fought admirably against 2eZ but finished in 7th place.
Noble Tweedy and yungmonster12 met in Winner’s Finals for a match-up that, surprisingly, was not a common sighting at any point in the Kombat Cup. Known for an incredible blend of high-speed footsies and mix-ups, yungmonster has been a dangerous foe for any who crossed his path. But so has Noble Tweedy, who goes on to prove that no amount of time away from Mortal Kombat X leaves him weakened at all.
With his brother RevetLeafing eliminated at 5th Place, yungmonster waited in Loser’s Finals for his chance at redemption, which came in the form of Rewind, who’d taken out every opponent he encountered since his entrance from the lower bracket. After a viciously competitive battle, yungmonster put a stop to Rewind’s momentum, eliminating him at 3rd place and earning himself a spot in the Grand Finals for a rematch with Tweedy. However, the outcome was no different from that of Winner’s Finals, and so Tweedy proceeded to claim the crown in The Runback II!

Additionally, due to KIT, War of the Gods will not take place this weekend. Instead, Week 5 will take place next Sunday, January 14th. If you’d like to register now, you can do so here!
