Despite the wet and cold weather, the crowd turnout for this afternoon’s matches were good. The Zenith vs. Art of SeDuCti0n match seemed to be the draw for most of the spectators, with many crowding behind both teams’ terminals throughout the afternoon matches. The afternoon matches went smoothly, except for one match.
The NightMare. vs. Cheryl Chocolate Candy match was marked by an unfortunate incident where the host PC disconnected from the network during the 53th minute of play, resulting in the game ending prematurely. The marshals were forced to view the replay in an effort to find out who had the upper hand at the time of the disconnect and declare a winner. After a lengthy calculation process and debate, game marshals Andy and Shan called both teams together. “The match is quite close, so we looked at a few things. Ultimately, we calculated and NightMare. wins,” said Andy. Shan also explained that some of the factors taken into account were the hero progression, towers and gold earned for each side.
Here are the results for Day 3:
