Congratulations Premier winners happy feet
Congratulations to happy feet on winning the OZF 28 Premier Grand Final against Head Cavers.
The first map of the series was Sunshine. As expected, happy feet came out firing on all cylinders on their first map pick taking the first round in a matter of minutes. Head Cavers began to look much more competitive in the second round with points and Ubers being traded between the two teams. Some clutch Demoman heroics from enrith to save his Medic looked to put Head Cavers in a solid position, but it the midst of all the chaos redcoatzygote had slipped behind and begun a backcap. Despite the players of Head Cavers rushing back to last in order to stop the backcap, redcoatzygote was able to secure the round with some impressive pipes, putting his team up 2 - 0. Head Cavers were showing some promise, managing to push happy feet back to their last on multiple occasions however they seemed to be unable to convert their last pushes into rounds. These failed pushes gave happy feet an opportunity to claw back the momentum, and that was an opportunity they did not squander. Two more rounds to put happy feet up 4 - 0, putting them in an extremely favourable position to take the map. The momentum was well and truly in the favour of happy feet, and they converted the final round to take the map 5 - 0 in a quick 23 minute fashion. redcoatzygote's impact was a huge factor in his team's convincing win. Impressive stats (21/7 K/D ratio, 335 DPM) combined with his high impact plays proved too much for Head Cavers to handle.
Head Cavers' first map pick was the unconventional Granary, and after the disappointing result on Sunshine they were looking for a good start on the second map of the evening. Both teams were initially looking evenly matched, with the first round narrowly going to happy feet. Despite this opening round loss, Head Cavers were still looking to be in much better form than on Sunshine. However, in an unfortunate case of déjà vu, the second round of Granary also fell to a backcap from the side of happy feet. This marked the beginning of a series of unfortunate events for the side of Head Cavers. Juts minutes later, Doge was dropped by the Spy play of down after a beautifully-timed backstab. Things were looking up for Head Cavers after a convincing team-wipe, however a heartbreaking play from yewl picked Doge with his team around him on 96% Uber right as Head Cavers were prepping for a last push. This string of events led to happy feet ultimately picking up their third round and extending their lead to 3 - 0. With time running out and no choice but to play aggressively, Head Cavers increased the pace of their game in order to quickly acquire rounds however the fundamentals of happy feet proved too strong and they were able to extend their lead once again before the map time ran out. The duo of redcoatzygote and down provided both high impact plays and impressive fragging, setting their team ahead 2 - 0 in the series.
The pressure was on for Head Cavers as their OZF 28 hopes were on the line as we headed into our third and potentially last map of Process. The first round of Process played out similarly to our previous two maps, a slightly more draw our affair with happy feet ultimately taking the first round for the third map in a row. However, a promising round from Head Cavers put them on the board and tied us up at 1 - 1. This act of defiance seemed to light a spark under happy feet, and they were then ultimately able to assert their dominance and take the next four rounds in under ten minutes. With the time nearly up and not enough time left for Head Cavers to get the required rounds, the game looked well and truly over as happy feet were able to take the victory 6 - 1 and the series 3 - 0 to take of $1800 AUD and become your ozfortress season 28 Premier champions!
