5k and Nice Like Rice tangled in Losers Bracket Round 6 for the right to advance to the Top 4 of the tourney. 5k had just been swept by Final Boss in the Winners Bracket, while Nice Like Rice were riding high after they defeated XiT Woundz 3-0.
The first two games displayed the squads were extremely even. 5k managed a 5-4 on CTF Midship, while Nice Like Rice countered with a 50-48 Team Slayer win on Warlock. After Game 2, the series was tied 1-1 and the teams would play a best of three.
The evenness disappeared in Game 3. 5k asserted dominant map control during Lockout Oddball. Fearitself and Lunchbox led their team, with 28-22 and 25-19 performances, respectively. 5k won easily, 5:00-1:39. With that victory they obtained a 2-1 series lead and found themselves just one win from the next round.
Nice Like Rice could not find any answers for the teamwork of 5k in Game 4. Sanctuary CTF is ripe for teams with excellent communication and team-shooting. While NLR might find themselves with excellent chemistry in the future, 5k already possess it. 5k cruised to a 3-0 in Game 4 and took the series 3-0. The win assured 5k of a top-four finish.
