King of the Watch - "Friendly" Faces Return
In an exciting bout last week, King of the Watch viewers were treated to an exciting upset, seeing underdogs Evoks breeze by Clutch 2-0 before dethroning the previous Kings Prets 4 to 2. With Clutch, it was understandable that a North American team would struggle with Ping lag; however, Evoks tightened their grip over their rival Prets, beating them for the second straight head to head matchup between the two teams. This week, we’re seeing previous challengers return to run Evoks rule short.
A now-regular contestant of King of the Watch returns this week in ExAequo. A team that has struggled to generate any real consistency in victory, ExAequo is looking to this KotW event to continue to practice and sharpen their skill, as they seek to become a Top 10 European team. They’ll need to shore up their shortcomings in order to consistently beat the teams they face if they want to reach that goal.
Our second participant is already acting on their thirst for revenge. Prets enters the fray, already looking past ExAequo (who they’ve beat already recently in a King of the Watch finals), and towards Evoks, in order to regain their crown. Prets is normally favored in this matchup, so they’ll look to prove that last week was a fluke.
