In the Winners Bracket Finals in Chicago, Str8 Rippin’s momentous ride slowed as they faced Final Boss. Str8 Rippin’s aggressive style earned the team a quick and convincing 5 – 1 Warlock CTF victory in Game 1. The crowd went into a roar, hoping to see Str8 Rippin consecutively topple each of the Pro Circuit’s three top-seeded squads.

Game 2 saw the two tremendous slaying powers of the teams evenly matched on Team Slayer Midship, as play went down to the wire. Tied at 48 kills, a clever play by Ogre 1 with the shotgun on blue-side pink earned his team the final two kills, as the score read 50 – 49.

Final Boss opened Lockout Oddball with nearly a minute of uncontested ball time on BR tower. During a Str8 Rippin rush on the library, Strongside attempted to “play-ball” the objective as Final Boss’ formation was broken. In an incredible display of awareness, Legit grabbed the ball before it could fully pass through the window, giving Str8 an instant setup. Str8 took the lead with a solid minute of ball time. However, the game slipped away as Final Boss rushed over glass and proceeded to build an insurmountable two-minute lead. The final score read 5:00 – 3:58, led by Ogre 2’s tremendous 25 – 13 showing.

The final game, Midship CTF, was taken by Final Boss by a tally of 5 – 3. Final Boss have advanced to the Championship Match, while Str8 Rippin await the victor of the Losers Bracket Semifinal match between Carbon and FBI The Agency.
