DF @Grr_George wins #WarOfTheGods S3 Week 3!

Last night, we witnessed the rise of a new champion!

The upper bracket for Week 3's Top 8 introduced a refreshing variety of upcoming talent and returning veterans from previous seasons in War of the Gods. In addition, SylverRye and Semiij, each of which have taken their first weekly win this season, were slated to start their paths from the lower bracket.

Winner's Semis concluded with two 3-1 wins in favor of both DF Grr and CLN Deoxys. When the two met in Winner's Finals, Deoxys proved ultimately unable to solve the equation that made up Grr's Atom, whom Grr has been using as an alternate to complement his Bane. The set took a heavy toll on Deoxys's morale as he found himself dropped into Loser's Finals.

Surprises continued to unfurl in the lower bracket. For instance, through a victory from SenorAbram, Semiij's run in the Top 8 came to an early end at 7th place. Sadly for Abram, his triumph was cut short by SweetNeptune, who'd just recovered from his loss against Deoxys.

Rye, on the other hand, managed to survive Loser's Eighths and Quarterfinals by defeating both Big Black and CLN Nubcakes, thus eliminating Deoxys's only comrade in the Top 8. His efforts would go towards facing SweetNeptune in Loser's Semifinals next, during which he unleashed the Dark Knight into the fray once more so as to abuse a match-up disadvantage plaguing SweetNeptune. In spite of this, their set proved incredibly competitive as the two constantly traded wins, until Rye came out ahead by a very slight margin.

Loser's Finals proved almost no different from Loser's Semifinals: both Rye and Deoxys, the former having reverted to his trademark Hellboy, traded wins with one another like a game of ping pong. Match-up unfamiliarity and the pressure of placing within Top 3 began to show itself in their gameplay, as a great deal of scrambles took place to make up for dropped combos. Periods of inaction ran incredibly strong until either player caved in to the pressure and rushed in to make a move. The lead slipped away from Rye momentarily in Game 5, but he snatched victory back from Deoxys's grasp in a startling clutch moment.

With Deoxys eliminated at third place, Rye saw his chance to add to his win streak in War of the Gods. Unfortunately for him, his runback with Grr ran in a manner eerily similar to their previous set. Grr's Atom was literally all over him, leaving Rye confused as to how to either retaliate or defend himself. A switch to Firestorm proved ineffective in making up for the deficit that was rapidly building. In the end, Grr dethroned SylverRye 3-0 to take Week 3 of War of the Gods Season 3!
