Noble @Semiij wins #WarOfTheGods S2 Week 10

The Week 10 finals were a journey in and of itself last night.

Out of approximately two-hundred players, eight remained standing for this week's Wednesday finals. All were returning faces, but a portion of them had not been seen in a Top 8 bracket for a good amount of time. Furthermore, there was a drastic shift in the face of the Winner's Bracket this week: out of the legendary Noble trio that has been dominating Season 2, only Tweedy was starting his path from the upper bracket, whereas Semiij and Rewind had to work with the disadvantage of playing in Loser's Bracket.

In spite of these setbacks, Semiij and Rewind battled their way to Loser's Semifinals to set the stage for a team kill. As for Tweedy, he turned BC Biohazard's dream into a nightmare by zoning out his Bane with Starfire, albeit in a neck-and-neck race to the win. Also, Emperor Kombat triumphed his former teammate HZRDS Knicks, thus advancing to Winner's Finals where he would take on Tweedy in a set that would forever win the hearts of the viewers.

After the first two games, Tweedy quickly found himself on the verge of elimination at Kombat's hands, but he stood his ground, clutching it out with Superman's Heat Zap. He gradually evened out the odds so that both players stood at two wins apiece. Unfortunately for him, a well-timed air dash from Kombat left Tweedy exposed to a counter-attack that cleaned out the last of his health bar. The first spot in Grand Finals would consist of new blood at long last.

The outcome left its mark on Tweedy. After Semiij eliminated Rewind, another team kill erupted in Loser's Finals, one that ended in the Catwoman specialist's favor 3-0. Semiij's recovery from his loss in the Sunday preliminaries was remarkable enough, but what added the icing on the cake was his six-game streak against Emperor Kombat in Grand Finals. The result would complete Semiij's comeback and earn him another victory for his ongoing streak in Season 2.

Congratulations to Semiij for taking Week 10 despite his early disadvantage! Out of the ten weeks for War Season 2, he has now won eight of them, while Rewind has claimed the other two. As of now, we are down to the final two weeks of the season, so opportunities to stop Semiij's rampage are rapidly dwindling away, but still there!
