Time 2 Prove provided the first upset of a Top 8 team in the Halo 2 Championship Bracket at MLG Chicago. They defeated sixth-seeded Nice Like Rice in Winners Bracket Round 2 by a series score of 3-1.
Nice Like Rice opened the match with a dominant performance in Game 1. They steamrolled Time 2 Prove on CTF Warlock, blanking the 11th-seeded squad 5-0. That win would be the end of the perfection for NLR, however. Time 2 Prove evened the series on Game 2′s Team Slayer Lockout, winning by the score of 50-41.
Time 2 Prove took their first lead of the series after Game 3. Midship Oddball provided a tensely close affair, but T2P managed to edge Nice Like Rice 3:13-3:01. Up 2-1 overall, Time 2 Prove closed out the match on CTF Midship. They won Game 4 with five captures to just two for Nice Like Rice.
The win moved Time 2 Prove to Winners Bracket Round 3. Nice Like Rice, on the other hand, must begin the dangerous journey of the Losers Bracket.
