Project M singles had a huge turnout with 27 entrants. We saw some new faces and retuning veterans. DBSammy made a rare appearance and PwrUp! was able to make his first ePG of the season. Bracket ran mostly as expected until Losers Semis, but there were a few upsets along the way. It started in Winners R2 with Blu2 beating TM87 2-0. In Losers R2, Sputo started his bracket run beating Vlad 2-0, then TM87 2-0 in Losers R3, but his luck ended with PwrUp!, losing 0-2 in Losers R4. One of the coolest matches I’ve ever seen happen in Losers R4 in a Mewtwo ditto between Blu2 and Zerxion. The set went to game 3 with Blu2 taking the set 2-1. Bracket continued as expected until Losers Semis, where Zeddy beat Chevy 2-1. Zeddy moved on to Losers Finals and got a bye as Punk Panda had to leave earlier for personal reasons. With Punk Panda out of the question, Zeddy moved onto Grands and lost to Aki 0-3. Congrats to our winners with Punk Panda in 3rd, Zeddy in 2nd, and Aki in 1st.
This Thursday will be Project M reverse mains and singles. The event info can be found here.
