.@Omg_Nubcakes wins Week 9 + #WarOfTheGods Season 3 Finale finalized for September 2nd
The final chapter of our open bracket series for War of the Gods Season 3 reached its end last night, and WHAT a climactic conclusion it was.
As previously referenced in our recap for the Week 9 Top 8, a difficult challenge loomed before Coalition's George "Nubcakes" Silva: finish within the Top 2 to pass through a narrow window leading into the Season 3 Finale. As one of the most well-rounded Dark Knights since the days of Injustice 1, Nubcakes was all too willing to meet the challenge head-on.
His first opponent, DF Grr, made an effort to bar Nubcakes from progressing through the Winner's Bracket. Nubcakes responded fiercely, erecting an effective defense against the chaos of Atom's offense while punishing Grr's mistakes accordingly. Nubcakes's consistency rewarded him with a 3-1 victory over the Week 3 champion.
The difficulty level was toned further up a notch, as Noble Semiij, who'd 3-0'ed Emperor Kombat in Winner's Semis, awaited Nubcakes for what would be nothing less than a high-level representation of the classic Bat vs Cat match-up. Semiij was the first to take hold of the reins in their set, only for Nubcakes to wrestle them from his grip as the Dark Knight ascended to a 2-1 lead over his foe. Incensed, Semiij took Game 4 to tie it up, forcing an extremely tense Game 5 between the two.
As the two found their health bars hanging by a literal thread, Nubcakes's steely demeanor remained unbroken. His final Batarang miraculously caught Semiij taking a misstep in the neutral, shattering his final life bar and paving the way for Nubcakes to not only make Grand Finals, but to earn his well-deserved spot in the Season Finale!
Feeling incredibly elated, Nubcakes decided to top off his Week 9 run with a victory to go along with his entrance into the Finale, though DF Grr, having emerged from the Loser's Bracket triumphant, would have an answer for that resolution. In another four-game set that mirrored the outcome of their previous encounter, however, Grr's equation turned up a few variables short against Nubcakes, who proudly stands as the final winner of our Season 3 open brackets!
