The Legends Circuit (TLC) Singapore: Spring 2017 was a tournament which consisted of a series of online group stages, and ended with a bang at the Raffles City Convention Centre on March 25 where the nail-biting finals were held. We had the privilege to witness two very capable teams pit their skills against each other in a ‘best of 5’ match- up of the ages: Team Flash and Team Sovereign.
In the end, Team Flash emerged triumphant. Here are some of the highlights from the epic grand finals.
An Undefeated Streak
As both teams were seated on stage for the first round, they were extremely confident in their abilities to dominate the opposition. In the short interviews that the shoutcasters had with a representative from each team, both teams had high expectations about their team’s performance in the grand finals. Team Flash had remained undefeated throughout the series while Team Sovereign had trumped its competitors in the semifinals with a 3-0 win.
With tensions and animosity rising between the two, the live audience was cheering for the favourite teams as Team Flash and Team Sovereign reached a tie at the fourth round. Team Sovereign managed to defeat Team Flash in two consecutive rounds despite Team Flash having emerged victorious for the first two rounds.
This led up to an intense final round between the two. Through a stroke of chance, both teams met up in the jungle, which made Timothy ‘FL.Ciela’ Lim dish out high amounts of damage in a team fight at the 32 minute mark. Team Flash was up four kills as a result.
This play by FL.Ciela allowed Team Flash to snowball immensely and push into Team Sovereign’s base at the 37 minute mark. The team caught out Wong ‘SVR.iNitrogen’Jing Kai and eliminated Team Sovereign.
Team Flash proceeded to destroy the enemy team’s Nexus, securing them the victory that they longed for. The winners will now have to get ready to represent Singapore in Manila later in the year. But for now, let’s just say that they pulled off this proverbial Flash in a pan.
