Summary of the match
Although the Defense did not start well for Mandatory in the first few rounds, the team quickly recovered. All the players played very well and had the opportunity to shine. hoppY was even in particularly good form, regularly taking triples, if not forties. BeGenius didn't disappoint though and the rounds were pretty close, although the score was in Mandatory's favour at the side change, at 8-4.
The Attack was more complicated to negotiate for Mandatory. BeGenius' strategy based on retakes was extremely effective, until they went back to the score. But this was without counting on HyP and his multiple clutches. The momentum he gave his teammates (and the team's economy) brought everyone back into the match. Mandatory put in a string of solid rounds and, if not for a little overconfidence that cost the team a match point, ended up winning the match.
hoppY the legend!
AKUMAAAAA shows his Phoenix
HyP and APO, the unstoppable duo
