NPL Week 4 doesn’t start until March 1st at 5PM Pacific, but we want to keep our fans connected, and informed. Today at 2PM Pacific Standard Time, Group B of the NPL Royale Contenders plays out with Wildcard Gaming facing off against 16 other teams including, Cloud9, Envy, Spacestation Gaming, and Simpicity, to name a few. This break from the week-by-week action, is combined with an unprecedented $80,000 prize pool, for all 32 teams to fight for. May our scopes be well aimed, our triggers be off safety, and… may the best team win! Good luck to everyone, now back to the recap.
The Wildcard Gaming Pros sit currently in 8th place out of the 16 team field but, are well within striking distance as they are only 11 points out of 5th. Overall, with the first 3 weeks gone, we are confident in our adaptability to command and solidify a more worthy placement in the weeks to come. Each weekend set has consisted of 8 rounds, and over three weeks we have tasted chicken dinner twice, which means one thing and one thing only, we need more CHICKEN!!!
So far, Tempo Storm has been the dominant force who has certainly been on fire. Currently sitting in first place, they are leading the pack by a 50 point margin. Tempo has stayed in the top 5 week after week, commanding a convincing amount of kills every round. Cloud 9 and Shoot to Kill round off 2nd and 3rd place respectively with only a 4 point difference, taking advantage of early and mid game positions to bring kills and strong finishes into place nearly every round so far. Then dropping 9 pts from 3rd to 4th, we have Team Envy, who again has showed week after week strong progression. Week 1 they found themselves in 10th for the 8 rounds, week 2, 4th, week 3 2nd. With this type of trending we will no doubt be expecting top level game play and a potential move into the top 3.
As we pay respects to the top 4, we certainly aren’t taking 8th place lightly. We have much ground to cover, but with our 2nd place Preseason finish, we will maintain our current objective, which remains locking down top 5 finish for the first phase of the NPL.
To all teams involves, best of luck, and see you on the playing field. To all our fans, be sure to follow us, check out all of our great giveaways, partners, and influencers. #WCWIN
