Numerous of our teams attended SwitzerLAN and landed great placings in their tournaments, as well as our League of Legends and CS:GO team which both had the honour to play in the grand finals of the Swisscom Hero League on stage during the Herofest both on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday the Swisscom Hero League Finals were played out between Red Instinct and our CS:GO team, although Red Instinct came out of on top, our players gave them a good run for their price money. We congratulate Red Instinct on the first place! GG & WP to both contending finalists.
Parallelly on Saturday, the Super Smash Brothers Ultimate Singles tournament was held at the Nintendo booth with astonishing 128 participants. Both our Smash players Wave(s) and Kepler attended and tried to smash their way to the top with Wave(s) dropping out of the tournament during pools phase. It was up to Kepler to fight his way through the difficult TOP 24 players bracket, defeating Destany and other well known CH players in the process up to the Grand final against Karpardor64 on stage, which he defeated with a 3:1 score. Therefore he finished first out of 128 and we happily congratulate him to his astonishing victory.
How did you experience the tournament? Your Brackets seemed pretty though but you still managed to get through. How do you feel about that?
The brackets definitely were a very difficult challenge, as I had to defeat Crash to get into the top 24 bracket, who has won every tournament against me until now.
After Crash I had to face Destany, who’s well known as the best SSBU player in Switzerland at the moment. I had the confidence that I was able to beat everyone if I played correctly but was also aware, that it wasn’t going to be easy. Additionally, the tournament felt like a marathon to me, due to the 128 Participants and me still feeling a little weakened through a recent cold.
In the end, I’m still a little surprised that the tournament went so unbelievably well for me, although I want to mention that my main character “Snake” profits from my enemies not being able to concentrate to their best ability, which often can be the case at such “Event Tournaments”.
League of Legends
On Sunday our League of Legends team tested their skill against the strong positioned Postfinance Helix which they lost to 2:0. Despite not being able to take down Helix down in the grand finals, we’re very proud of our League of Legends team’s performance and accomplishments in the Swisscom Hero League . GG & WP to all players!
