Toronto Major III Report

POSTED BY Webmaster June 9, 2022

Heading to Toronto, both of the Toronto ULTRA Academy rosters were fired up and ready to go out there and perform well in front of the home crowd.

The Toronto ULTRA European team found themselves as the third seed in the tournament and game out of the gate strong with a quick 2-0 victory over McMaster Marauders, another 2-0 victory against Brand New Day before taking on a much stronger opposition; StrikeX. Despite facing a team regularly at the top of challengers, Toronto ULTRA Academy EU showed their dominance once again as we took a 3-0 victory, sending us through to the Upper-Bracket Quarter Finals where we took Whatever It Takes to the limit, but ultimately, fell to the lower-bracket following a 3-2 defeat. Heading into the lower-bracket, we were determined to perform well and push through, but it was not meant to be. Toronto ULTRA Academy EU would fall 3-1 to LAG Enterprises resulting in the roster placing top 12, taking home $1,875.

Toronto ULTRA Academy EU weren’t the only roster competing at the major, as Toronto ULTRA Academy NA looked to prove once again, that they are the best team in challengers. We took down OldManAndHisSons 2-0, and then 3-0 against 3KingzGaming.Heading into Round 3, we knew that this team would be the best we’d faced at the event so far, and despite taking them all the way to map 5, we fell 3-2 against IronBloodGaming and knew we had to perform well and make the lower-bracket run. We quickly faced DestroyTheOdds, taking a 3-2 victory, followed by another 3-2 victory against 705 Esports, setting up a lower-bracket seni-final against Into The Breach.

Heading into the lower-bracket semi-final, we knew that the only thing that mattered here was victory. We took the 3-1 victory forcing us to face off against Electrify Steel Gaming, who we dominated with a 3-0 victory. It was time for the Grand Finals which saw us win the first series, meaning we would have one series to crown the Toronto Major III Open Champions, but unfortunately for us, it was not our time. We would fall 3-1 placing 2nd at the event, securing $12,000.

Ultimately, we wanted one thing; the championship, but it doesn’t always work out. We go again, and next-time, we’re bringing home the championship.

“Both teams were fired up for this event, especially knowing it was the Toronto major. Unfortunately you win some & you lose some. Both teams are back and already focused on the next tournament.”

Curt Bottomley, Chief Gaming Officer

“Even though we fell into the losers bracket early on the Saturday, I’m proud of the character the team showed to fight their way through to the grand finals.”

Charles “Mystvc” Johnson, Coach for Toronto ULTRA Academy NA

“At Boston, we’re going for one thing only. Victory.”

Javier “Vikul” Milagro, Player for Toronto ULTRA Academy NA

“We had great practice and results going into Toronto event. It’s very disappointing that we were unable to get the result we deserved at the event but we look forward to making it right at Boston.”

Joshua-Lee “Joshh” Sheppard, Coach for Toronto ULTRA Academy EU

We didn’t get the result that we wanted, but looking forward, we’re excited for the Boston event and to show that we are much better.“
