Our The Battlefield 3 (BF3) Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL) 2013 Do Gaming Championship (DGC) Playoffs kick off tonight, as all four of the Playoff teams start their bid to get one of the two DGC spots available tonight.
The first teams to fight it out tonight are the two winners from the Winter Leg Breakthrough Playoffs, =iK= Syntax and [dM]Rebirth, who both shared extremely successful results in the Winter Leg Playoff runs.
[dM]Rebirth was the highest place team in First Division to join the DGL for the Winter Leg Playoffs, and they showed exactly why they should keep that spot by obtaining a 7 – 0 – 1 tally during the Playoffs. That one loss however comes from =iK= Syntax, who were the only squad to notch a win against the Divided Motion side.
The [dM]Rebirth squad will no doubt be looking for revenge, but =iK=Syntax has proven themselves to be a tough a nut to crack, and have yet to lose a game so far this year in the DGL 2013, and are definitely one of the favourites to claim one of the two DGC spots up for grabs.
Who do you think will take the game? Is =iK=Syntax going to continue on their path to glory, or are [dM]Rebirth going to get the revenge they need? Vote in the poll below and let us know.
The Battlefield 3 DGL 2013 is sponsored by EA.
Our second match of the day is also a grudge match, this time involving the first and second place finishers from the Winter Leg Premier Playoffs, as RFH Black Legion look to notch another victory against the [SSG] Pack Loss side.
RFH Black Legion achieved a respectable seventh place in the Premier Division during the Winter Leg, and showed us exactly how much they had improved during the Winter Leg by crushing their way undefeated through the Winter Leg Playoffs, and even upended the undefeated streak of DvGǂMisFiTs in the DGL 2013 along the way.
It’s now up to [SSG]Packet Loss to exact their revenge, as RFH Black Legion were responsible for their only loss during the Winter Leg Playoffs. After achieving second place during their Winter Leg run, the [SSG]Pack Loss side stepped it up a gear during the Winter Leg Playoffs to beat DvGǂMisFiTs, a side they had lost to during the Winter Leg, to take up second place after the Playoffs were done and dusted.
They are clearly also strong contenders for the DGC spots, and if history repeats itself, we could see another upset here today in the opening day of our DGC Playoffs.
Do you think [SSG]Packet Loss are going to knock down the RFH Black Legion side, or have they met their match? Take the poll and give your predictions below.
