Saturdays’s European ESL 1v1 tournament saw 65 entrants battle in a series of Bo3’s, culminating in a Trojan (SM) vs Booom3 (Eldar) finals. Trojan closed it out 2-1. The final game ending in a power core race where Trojan’s Dreadnought and melta-upgraded Land Speeders out damaged Booom3’s Dark Reapers and Striking Scorpions by a large margin. (Trojan's road to victory was record on his Twitch channel.)
Throughout the tournament, barely any build variance was seen. Mobility and early generator damage was the focus of participants’ strategies. The tempo gained from rushing early objectives was clear: matches often did not pass the 15 minute mark.
