AMurderOfBears wins Overdrive S2 Week 2!

If you missed out on Week 2 of the Overdrive Series, not to worry! We’re more than happy to catch you up.

Out of twenty-five entrants, Xcel’s BjornSonOfBear took out TSB Mynus and FF ElvenShadow, two other regulars in the Overdrive Series, to defend his throne and claim the second week. A new challenger, Herja, entered the bracket from ElvenShadow’s side but was sent to Loser’s where he was eliminated by MC GcYoshi13, who showed up in full force to deliver an astounding performance for Week 2. Yoshi finished in third place after a loss to ElvenShadow in Loser’s Finals.

While familiar faces stood at the top of the mountain for Week 2, quite a number of foreign faces had shown themselves in the Top 8, a testament to the expansion of competition one can expect to see from the Overdrive Series. This was a promising sign of the matches to come for Week 3!
