CGL MTT Preseason Recap
Updated: Apr 7
Whoa, remember these? Yes—it's time to bring back the CGL recaps. And this time, we're doing them on Mondays (yes, I know, this one is a day late...). We're also bringing back Player of The Week every Wednesday. A lot of our tournament matches are on the weekends, so saving them for in between seemed like a good idea. Anyway, let's get started!
The new season for the Antheia organization began with Astrantia facing Reborn in the T3 NA division. The Wednesday evening match-up was filled with huge dynamites, huge rezzes (with a bit of battle Mercy), and huge tires. With a rough start, our Astrantia roster was able to find their footing and make 0-1-1 into a 2-1-1—taking the series. Next up was going to be Allium versus Apollo T4, but due to a lot of party issues (thank you, Xbox Live), they had to postpone their match to Sunday. Allium was on absolute fire with this week's maps and hero bans, and secured a 4-0 victory.

Saturday was supposed to be a double-header day for us, but Azalea's game was forfeited due to their opponent, Valor Prestige, not having enough players available. This meant a 4-0 forfeit win for Team Azalea (NA T5).
The other game on Saturday was Team Ardisia versus Legacy Academy. Due to an unfavorable hero pool, Ardisia ended in an unfortunate 1-3 loss. Nepal and Blizzard World were very close maps though, so hopefully next week we'll see them make a comeback!
And finally, on Friday, our second EU team Anthemis played in the T3 division against Grizzlies. With their new player additions, they secured the win 3-1!
