1337HUANIA to playoffs via forfeit victory; round 4 matches determined
The third week of BESL Pro Season 3 is over with all the teams playing out their Round 3 matches of the newly introduced Swiss group stage.
This means that there are now two teams that have already been eliminated from our competition as they have suffered a defeat in every single one of the weeks prior (0-3). But, on the flipside, we also have the first two teams that have secured themselves a spot in the playoffs and one of those teams is 1337HUANIA who got a very early christmas gift from wolsung as Latvian side had to forfeit the game due to players not being able to play on easter break.
Who’s the second team that secured a spot in the playoffs? Find out down below!

Match of the Week (2-0 pool) - wolsung [0-1] 1337HUANIA
wolsung: hyskeee, YEKINDAR, Flarich, Whiskas, AiyvaN
1337HUANIA: Carcass, pounh, Butters, lukjjE, hype
Sadly for all of us, the most anticipated match that we’ve had here this season did not take place as Latvian side failed to field a roster for the game on Saturday, thus receiving a forfeit loss.
With the free win in their pockets, 1337HUANIA now join their countrymen of alltheRAGE in the 3-0 team pool, which means that they have secured themselves a spot in the playoffs. On the other hand, with the forfeit loss received, wolsung move down to 2-1 team pool and their fight for the playoffs is not over yet!
