Lyyyress on top after 5 days of Hex League Set 9
It was the last week of the regular season and the last two days of the competition. If Lyyyress and L3S Coco have held their own, the rest of the rankings have changed dramatically and we now know who will be in the final and who will have to battle it out in the Up & Down of the Hex League - Set 9.
Despite a poor performance on day 3, Lyyyress remained at the top of the overall rankings throughout the season. In the space of 20 matches, he achieved 3 Top1s, 5 Top2s and 3 Top3s, a respectable score consolidated by his overall consistency.
It is closely followed by L3S Cocowho achieved 4 Top 1s, 4 Top 2s and 5 Top 3s, but also had a number of empty spells with several Top 8s and Top 7s. Despite this, the player has been in second place since day 3 and has held onto it ever since. In the end, he is just 3 points behind Lyyyress in the final score table.
It's in the rest of the rankings that things are shaky. He was only 7th last week, IamTLT pulled off a real heist on day 4 with 3 Top1 finishes. A performance that propelled him into third place.
Positions 4, 5, 6 and 7 include Tarteman, Jedusor, V0mendeth and Brank each of which had both exceptional days and days of critical failures that undermined their results.
Finally, Texitadespite finishing third overall last week, just qualified for the final after the last few days of competition were not at all in his favour.
IziDream saw all his players progress to the final, but it was a blow for Aegis and Solary as all their players will have to play up & down. At the bottom of the table, we unfortunately find Xperion who had an extremely difficult season, winning an average of just 3 points per game.
