The young talent of Seattle Surge came for blood against NY Subliners.
Match one of the Toronto Ultra Major 3 Day 1 kicked off with the Seattle Surge vs NY Subliners.
Seattle had to face a team that consisted of the veteran of Call Of Duty ESports, Ian “Crimsix” Porter. This did not intimidate the young roster coming from Seattle.
Map 1 was Bocage Hardpoint. Makenzie “Mack” Kelley brought his “A” game against NY. He helped start off the momentum with his team, winning 250-178.
Map 2 was Berlin Search and Destroy. Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi made sure to lead the team to victory in the SND.
Accuracy clutched up with a 1 versus 2. This was what his team needed to push on and ultimately win the SND 6-2.
NY was in for a shock. Map 3 was Berlin Control.
NY has never played Berlin Control in any of their matchups. This put the team at a major disadvantage.
The Subliners did not let this stop them. They surprised the crowd and won the Control against Seattle 3-2.
The win for NY helped them gain some momentum. Map 4 was Gavutu Hardpoint.
Gavutu is known to be a map that favors assault rifles, the gun class of choice for the one and only Crimsix.
This would prove to be a major advantage that drove the victory for NY.
NY kept their winning streak up and won the map 250-171 against Seattle.
Map 5 ALERT.
Tuscan SND was the gamemode. Seattle Surge was having to battle with the savagery of NY’s momentum.
Seattle was down and almost out. The young blood in the roster were dedicated to make the comeback.
Down 3-5, Seattle Surge battled it out tooth to nail and secured their spot in tomorrow’s matchup in the Major 3. They cameback and won 6-5. They won the series [3-2].
Seattle is set to play Saturday 20:00 BST / 15:00 EST. Let’s see if they keep their streak up.
