Luminosity’s recent losses come at the worst time as Str8 Rippin surges from the depths of the standings into a tie for fourth. If both teams win their last series of the Halo Championship Series (HCS) Pro League, map win percentage gives Luminosity the last playoff spot. To eliminate any last day comebacks, a Luminosity win shuts out any remaining teams seeking a top four spot.
Evil Geniuses (EG) beating Luminosity on day one doesn’t just end their losing streak since adding Stellur, it also gives them a chance to sneak out of relegation. If Enigma 6 (E6) loses another series, they might join Allegiance or EG in Burbank, California for the relegation matches.
Team EnVyUs vs. Allegiance | EnVyUs win 3-1
If all the perfect scenarios play out and Allegiance sweeps, they could avoid relegation. While a lot must go wrong for other teams, the math shows a small chance for an upset.
Allegiance plays into their minuscule opportunity, winning Rig – Strongholds to start the series. To compete with Team EnVyUs’ (nV) slaying power, Allegiance relies on efficient Railgun usage. Both Contra and Falcated finish with 18 kills, hoping to at the very least, win this series before the rest of the league plays.
Whatever nV discussed following the game one loss, it helped them beat Allegiance three games in a row. On Plaza – Strongholds, Allegiance pulls away early, taking a 12-6 lead, which grows to 30-20. nV regroups from there as they score eight unanswered kills to cut the lead to three. The nV spree continues and they tally 13 kills over Allegiance’s two kills in the same time frame. The game ends 50-42, and nV takes the series 3-1.
