AWC Shadowlands Saison 1 - Regionale Champions stehen fest

Die Arena World Championship Circuit für Saison 1 in Shadowlands war die erste AWC seit 2019, die auch für die deutschsprachige Community live übertragen wurde. Am 27. März 2021 starteten die Matches, welche zuletzt am 18. April ausgetragen wurden. In einem großartigen Finale kam das Turnier zu einem Ende und brachte zwei neue Champions hervor. Das Team Skill Capped gewann die europäische Championship, während Method NA den nordamerikanischen Titel nach Hause brachte.

Die Gewinner dürfen sich über jeweils 50.000 US-Dollar pro Team und Goldmedaillen freuen. Insgesamt ging es um über 200.000 US-Dollar Preisgelder in den Spielen.

Skill Capped war von vornherein der klare Favorit in der europäischen Meisterschaft und enttäuschte seine Fans nicht. Im Finale traten sie gegen Method EU an und besiegten diese mit einem Punktestand von 4 zu 2. In Nordamerika ging es im großen Finale zwischen Method NA und Cloud9 heiß her. In einem „Game Seven“ (finale Match bei sieben Karten) konnte Method EU die Konkurrenz in der Kanalisation von Dalaran besiegen und den Titel erringen.

Die nächste kompetitve Aktivität in World of Warcraft ist das neue Turnierformat The Great Push, welches ab dem 17. Mai 2021 stattfindet. Wer Interesse daran hat, findet alle Informationen dazu in unserer News.

 Arena World Championship Saison 1 Regional Champions 

Skill Capped and Method NA are the Arena World Championship (AWC) Season 1 Regional Champions!

The first AWC season of Shadowlands has come to a close following an amazing Season 1 Finals, with Skill Capped claiming the EU Regional championship and Method NA securing the NA Regional title. With over $200,000 (USD) global prizing on the line, the winning teams are heading into the off-season with gold medals and $50,000 (USD) each!
 

EUROPE

Skill Capped entered the finals as the clear team to beat and did not disappoint their fans. They started the weekend sweeping Method EU in the quarter-final before making quick work of Creed in another 3-0 victory. Method EU climbed back through the elimination bracket for a rematch. While Skill Capped once again took three maps without fail, Method EU was able to mount an impressive comeback forcing a map six. But in the end, Skill Capped proved too strong as they claimed the EU Championship with a 4-2 victory. According to Maro, the reason Skill Capped proved dominant was due to “everyone on the team is probably the best at their class in the world, they’re all too good.”
 

NORTH AMERICA

With none of the casters betting on them to take the title, Method NA were a clear underdog in a closely contested region, Following an initial 3-1 defeat of OTK in the quarter-final, Method NA then struggled to pull out a 3-2 victory in the semi-final against Cloud9. The rematch was set after Cloud9 bested OTK in the elimination semi-final. Method NA and Cloud9 brought everything they had to the championship match, trading wins until forcing a game seven. Battling in the Dalaran Sewers, Method NA’s crowd control proved dominant as they ultimately beat Cloud9 to finish Season 1 as NA Regional Champions.

“These are hands down two of the best teams to ever compete in the AWC,” said David Hollings, AWC Product Manager. “The matches this weekend for both regions were so fun, even the sweeps, that I never wanted it to end. I cannot wait to see if Skill Capped and Method NA are able to maintain this momentum in what is bound to be a pressure-filled Season 2 later this year.”
 

Though AWC Season 1 has concluded, the post-season Relegation Cup is coming May 14 – 16, where the final two spots for Season 2 will be filled.
