The Tazdingo Cup Qualifier went on in Zurich this Saturday. Hofme, whose won the last Tazdingo Cup in 2017, was present to take a glance of his competition. 20 Participants battled for the spot and Hofme was able to place 8th. Sadly he got kicked out in the quarters by DarthHaribo. We will still see Hofme at the Tazdingo Cup since he’s invited due to winning the last tournament.
Our newest addition to the #SILENTFamily couldn't be stopped attending two events on a single weekend. Friday, Kepler took a trip to the ChablaisLAN in Monthey, a sort of mini-invitational with the best Smash Players in Switzerland and around. Running trough the bracket he met Destany from mYinsanity in the winner bracket, which he sadly lost. Getting another chance in the lower bracket, he first had to beat the Italian player Meercko who made him sweat in a exciting set which ended 3-2 for Kepler. Facing Destany was not an easy task, but bringing it to a 2-3 game for a second place was an accomplishment to be proud. On Sunday, with fresh energy, he made his way to the 2GPC Heavy Qualifier II in Lucerne. Playing out of his mind Kepler sweeped through the bracket to the finals. Playing a clean 3-0 against Crash secured him the win in of the Qualifier.
Our fresh Rocket League team joined the action on Sunday for the Swiss Gaming Challenge, fighting for a spot at Fantasy Basel (Spoiler: SILENT has a booth 😉 ). The first contender was SPG where they grabbed their first win. With confidence, SILENT.RL faced Whiffmaster in the semis but unfortunately lost with a 2-3 score. Having the Fantasy Basel stage in mind, they drive trough the lower bracket beating Piñch-a-Colada 3-1 only to be stopped in the lower bracket final by Arctic Gaming.
Our Counterstrike players started the SESL season against Team above on the first map being de_overpass which ended with a 7-16 score. On de_cache a comeback was on the rise against a strong performing Team above. Sadly the game ended with a 16-12 scoreline.
