Round two on Frontier Team TripleWreck with a come back 13435 to 7410 with 2 Spark scores.

Round 3 on Bannerfall started off very neck and neck but Team Flamesword pulled ahead by controlling the center and capturing the first spark upon its spawn.

However with a spark grab by Datto on team TripleWreck and a fight over the center on the 3rd spark spawn the game returned to neck and neck.

In the end Team TripleWreck pulled head just barely. No scores of the spark for round 3.

Round 4 the teams returned to Frontier. Started with some trench warfare instead of risking the center by the spark right away. Team Flamesword got the spark first, but did not score. Flamesword grabbed the 2nd spark but did not make it far, however the two grabs brought them into a lead 2 minutes into the game.

With heavy drop Team TripleWreck took the lead. With 1:21 left in match they were all tied up. Team TripleWreck with a score with about 20 seconds left on the clock to take the round 11535 to 8395.

Round Five one last return to BannerFall. Team TripleWreck crushes Team Flamesword for majority of the round with about double their score. In the end Team TripleWreck for the win 4 to 1.

With some extra time the two teams enjoyed showing off some Mayhem Clash.

We learned a few important things during this stream. The matches they were playing were only about 7 minutes long but a normal Rift match should be closer to 12 minutes long and will be 6v6 not 5v5. We also learn that you cannot use your super while running the spark but can otherwise shoot and attack like normal.

Some final words of advice from the team captains:

flame

trip

There is much speculation from the community that this event along with the connection to RedBull and Flamesword are hints at custom matchmaking and private games coming our way with TTK but this is not yet confirmed in any way. We will have to wait, see and keep hoping.
