FBI The Agency and 5k lived up to their seedings by both reaching the Top 4. The winner would assure a finish in the top three and earn a meeting with Final Boss in the Losers Bracket Finals. On paper, the third seed versus the fourth seed should be an intriguing match up; in practice, the pairing turned into a blowout.
5k jumped to a 2-1 lead during Midship Bomb during the first five minutes. They looked to be in good position, but The Agency planted the tying score by the sixth minute. The Agency used the momentum from their second score to push to a winning plant, ending the game 3-2. ElamiteWarrior produced a nice 21-13 game, aiding his team to a 1-0 series lead.
Game 2 featured Sanctuary Team Slayer. The teams started evenly, but within two minutes The Agency produced a five-kill lead at 14-9. 5k would never recover from the deficit, as The Agency extended the lead to 19-13, then 33-22, and 46-30 before closing the match at 50-31. The resounding win game The Agency a 2-0 lead and they looked to sweep 5k in Game 3.
5k produced their most promising effort in the third game, however. 5k led 1:15-0:37 after the initial stages of the game. They held the lead for the first 12 minutes of the match, including a margin of over one minute. The Agency leveled the game at the 12-minute mark and applied tenacious pressure to 5k for the remainder of the match. The Agency held the ball at will and cruised to the win, 5:00-3:39. In the win, Halogod logged 30 wins to just 23 deaths while capturing 2:11 of ball time. With the victory, The Agency finished the sweep of 5k and advanced to meet Final Boss.
