On Sunday afternoon, 21st of June, a few dauntless and underdressed fighters gathered to fight against each other. The plans almost ended prematurely when at first no one seemed to be able to find the secret location where they were supposed to meet. When finally everyone had arrived, the distribution of classes turned out to be somewhat one-sided. Three thieves, a warrior, a necromancer and an engineer, who had brought lots of turrets as reinforcement.
The warmup began with an open 3 vs 3 brawl, that soon turned out to be utterly one-sided, as Wai’s thieving skills were just OP. After Wai swapped places with Cinna the teams were much better balanced and, aside from occasional swearing because of turrets or invisible thieves, the fight proceeded nicely.
To distribute invisibility powers evenly it was decided that every team for the final 2 vs 2 matchup should have one thief each. Each team was to fight against each other team in a best of 3.The first matchup saw Sam and Wai against Carlo and Thierry and was won by the former 2:0. The waiting team had to get dressed in order to be recognisable and served as judges and reporters. Though some judges complained about being attacked by disobedient turrets.
Invisibility continued to cause much of confusion. Once a team was suspected of having fled the confrontation due to an early use of Shadow Refuge, and another fight even had to be paused for a few seconds when all of a sudden everyone was invisible at the same time. Things became especially wild when more than one fighter was downed at the same time since the question of who died first more than once tipped a fight in a matter of seconds. The second matchup which saw Wai and Sam against Nick and Cinna turned out to be a tough fight where more often than not lucky timing would tip the balance in one direction. After a tie it finally ended with 1:2.
The end came with a heart-stopping finish, in which all four combatants got downed at the same time and started to frantically throw stones at each other, accompanied by loud swearing and screaming. Standings were as follows: Nick and Cinna in the first place, Sam and Wai runners-up and Carlo with Thierry in the third place.
