Final Boss demonstrated their champion’s spirit by rebounding from the Winners Bracket Finals loss to Carbon by defeating FBI The Agency. While The Agency put up a solid effort against the top-seeded Final Boss, including a 50-37 victory on TS Lockout, they fell in the series 3-1.
Final Boss dominated CTF Warlock by a score of 5-2 behind the 28 kills by Ogre 1. The victory was not solely the work of Ogre 1, however, as each of his teammates posted 19 kills of their own as they worked the blue flag back to their base the five times necessary to win. In Game 2, Final Boss were able to establish control of the BR Tower for extended periods of time, but The Agency built a solid lead and none of the coordinated rushes from Final Boss were able to close the gap. Mackeo went 20-10 in this game, destroying Final Boss with his sniping abilities and tying the overall series at one.
On Midship Oddball in Game 3, The Agency managed to build a small lead early in the game and hoped their impressive slaying abilities would allow them to maintain it. Final Boss battled back and took a 30-second lead late in the match. The Agency did everything in their power late in the game, nearly tying the score, but Final Boss’ teamwork was too great to overcome. Despite out-slaying Final Boss, The Agency were now on the ropes, with the series at 2-1.
While The Agency were able to score the first flag in Game 4’s CTF Sanctuary, Final Boss capped right back and established control of the pace of the game. Mackeo broke through Final Boss’ defenses at about the 23 minute mark and ran a flag back through the center of the map to put his team in the lead. Once again, Final Boss answered and, with the Ogres temporarily in control of both snipers, were able to score two quick flags to win the series. Ogre 2 led all players with an impressive 28 kills and helped his team advance to the Finals.
In just a few moments, Final Boss and Carbon will meet in the Championship Match, where Carbon holds the series lead at 3-1. Can Final Boss build on their momentum from this series with The Agency and win the championship here in Dallas? Or will Carbon hold onto their lead and take home their first championship of the 2007 season?
