Spring Break: Day 2

Day 2 of Spring Break has come and gone. Check out coverage of all events, to include: R6S 3v3 Bomb, OverWatch 4v4 TDM, and 7’s Poker to name a few!

Today was a very fine day for Spring Breakers as far as competitions go. Events included Poker, Rainbow Six Siege, Overwatch, and a Trivia competition that took place during the R6S Twitch stream. All of the events brought in a large number of viewers and a high level of excitement!

Day two marks the halfway line for Spring Break, and boy was it a good time! A lot happened and the competition really heated up tonight. Mostly, there was a lot of really great sportsmanship and kudos handed out amongst the players that fueled the positive spirit.

Rainbow Six Siege 3v3 Bomb

As per usual, R6S lived up to it’s standards and didn’t fail to impress. Teams were the epitome of sweat, while the viewers were losing their nails. With triumphs and heartaches both of equal size, grenades to the face, and bombs being defused, no one would have EVER guessed the outcome. In the first streamed event, ES went up against DL. As the game progressed, odds looked in ES’s favor. With RUSTYMARSHMELOW slipping out of sight, he sealed the deal with a final bullet striking a hard blow, giving him 10 kills in 5 matches, and ES the win in a 4-1 battle.

With the second streamed match starting, tensions were running high between WD and DW. It seemed that each team had an answer for their opponents. Going into the final round, DW was up 3-2, but it looked like WD would take the round. That is until KSI Finisher came through clutch with a 3 man kill streak, leading DW into the finals to play for first place!!!

The Ultimate showdown

The grand finale of the evening saw ES playing against DW to show who was the best of the best. Both teams came into the match undefeated, and on pins and needles knowing just exactly what a win would mean. DW came out of the gate with a heart as fierce as a lion, winning the first two rounds with almost no problem. Somehow, ES managed to emerge from the shadows, taking the 3rd round with a corner gun kill. DW wasn’t having it though, as they swiftly came back in the 4th round not holding back and taking the win.

When all seemed to be lost, and by some grace of God, ES came back in the 5th round with nothing to lose, aside from the game of course. Taking round 5 and 6 by storm, ES evened up the score 3-3, and went into round 7 knowing it was all or nothing. As defenders, anything was possible, but rushing was the name of the game. Pushing through, what can only be called a “Miracle Match”, ES managed to take out the whole DW team with over a minute to spare.

Overwatch 4v4


Tonight’s Overwatch 4v4 event saw 6 Divisions face off against each other in a battle of many deaths. The teams played fiercely, each giving it their all. Ultimately it was ES that shined the brightest again, taking the win and putting the rest of their competition to shame.

Match.Set.Finals

The first match saw DM vs DW with KSI Mitch dominating the game and taking the win for DM. The round ended 30-5. Second match of the day was EO vs DW. DW had a commanding lead throughout the match. KSI PapaRomeo consistently stomped the opposition and took play of the game. DW took the win with a score of 30-7. ES took off in a major way showing no mercy to DL. They laid it on hard with KSI Tempest115 taking play of the game. ES won 30-12

DM took yet another win in their match against SL due to them inflicting damage upon their own team, thus causing them to go negative by 1. DM continued to take the game by storm and finished 30-10 with Infinityhunt taking play of the game. DM went on to pick up yet another win defeating and, ultimately eliminating DL.

Finishing blows

The final match was ES vs DM. With ES having already picked up an additional win against DL, the two teams were both forerunners throughout most of their match ups! The adrenaline was strongly pumping through these teams. The match proved to be extremely tense and fast paced with both teams keeping a fairly close lead on each other. Bringing us to a point ES needed to only win this final match to take the “w”! DM started off strong showing they weren’t willing to go down easily, however ES soon turned things around flipping the table on DM and taking charge of the match. ZealousEquality took Play of the Game as ES swept the competition away and won the final match thus winning the entire game 30-13. This win solidified them as the grand champions of this tournament.

Prominence Poker 7’s event

Our third event, happening slightly later in the evening was this free-for-all match up against our beloved 7’s, who came out to represent their respective divisions. The competition was very quiet until the final match! Most competitors decided to let their cards and the sweet flow of poker chips do all the talking.

The Tabletop Tango

There were 3 poker tables in total for the night. The first featured table on stream was hosted by KSI Exclibur. The party chat was completely silent although there was an apparent a table bully as KSIFiremomma7 started out very strongly out off the gate slowly chipping away at her competitor’s stacks. Eventually KSI Venum 7 hit his competitive streak and really began working on the competition, and the two worked to wear down the table.

At multiple points KSI Havoc 7 was on the edge of losing it all yet somehow, he made a comeback over and over avoiding bankruptcy on many occasions. Sadly, he finally got taken out when the buy ins hit a place where he was forced to go all in for the last time. This left the 2 table winners KSIFiremomma7 of DL finishing with 6.5k in her bankroll and KSI Venum 7 of DW finishing with over 16k in his.

The table hosted by KSI Sup3r not shown on stream had a very long fierce drawn out competition. With an unfortunate knockout by way of controller death, KSI Hatter 77 of ES was eliminated first. The final winners from this table were KSI Akame 7 of LS, and KSI Brunan 7 of WD.

Winners Circle

Even though the night was reaching later hours, the table was full of lighthearted spirits as the final battle commenced! Brunan hit a lucky streak at the beginning of the fight, pulling in a MASSIVE 9k steal shortly after the start of this match. Firemomma again was enjoying bullying the table a bit, affectionately telling everyone that she needed to “take a bit more of their lunch money!” And that’s exactly what she did for quite some time. Akame was the first to be knocked out, followed by Venum shortly thereafter. Brunan and Momma were the only two left at the table until Brunan made a final push, taking the table over and bringing home a win for WD!
