This for the King of the NA Seas!  Defending champion [07] and second seed [????] are still alive.  [SCCC] and [AP] are challenging.  Who will meet in the Finals?

Game 2 on Northern Waters.

Each team has two Smalands and a Yamato.  AP has a mix with a Goliath.  [????] has triple Des Moines and a Z-52.

Z-52 takes B cap and the other two are DD slap fights.

Near-tie on points.  [????] down a DD with a slight HP deficit.

AP still up a ship and takes its first lead of the game with 4:00 left.

Three lead changes near the end, with [????] squeaking out a win!

Game 1 on North: [07] vs. [????]. Best of five for the Crown as King of the NA Sea!  Bans: Daring, Petro, Nevsky, Cockbote Wooster.

[????] with three DDs and and , the first I've seen on NA tourny; Marceau instead of Kleber?

Points are tied.  [????] down a ship.  Now two.

07 in a spread push.  [????] is clustered between A and B.

07 up two ships with two caps and the lead.

[????] kills a DD, and flips a cap.  They're still alive, with three surviving DDs.

07 owns C and is pushing the B cap hard.  Ship counts are equal, but 07 has much more health.

[????] DD tries a rush on a three-ship 07 cluster and accomplishes nothing. 

07 for the win!  1-0


Meanwhile [AP] wins Game 1 over [SCCC].

Holy cripes!  We've move to EU.  07 with FOUR Petropopodopoli, Shima, Marceau?   [????] with two Petbotes,  Yammie, double Zao, three DDs, including Marceau?  {Kleber not banned.)

07 typically behind in points, but now own two caps and are on target to win.

[????]  goes down a ship.  Needs a kill, but has nothing spotted.

TIED at 914!  07 takes a slight lead.

Geishu DD blapped and 07 takes a 2-0 lead!

Dear Warships Staff,

You need to hire SeaRaptor and Lord_Zath full time when it comes to events. They are great color commentators and good guys, in general. I am proud to follow their streams and learn a lot from them. I do stream other CC's and enjoy their shows too, but these two go the extra mile during KOTS. They need their own captains on WoWs with their voice overs too.

Meanwhile, [AP] goes up 2-0 over [SCCC]


Game 3 on Northern Waters.  [07] can take the crown with this game.  Bans: Worcester, Nevsky, Petropavlovsk, Smaland.

Again, matching Daring and Marceaus?  (What about Kleber?)  [????] 3 DDs with Z-52.  (Why not try the quad Kleber comp?)

[????] again takes the caps and points leads, but seems to have better position with better damage trade than previous.

07 down 400 points, and take First Blood.

William the Dank's Ohio explodes and it's over!  [????] pushes it to 2-1 in a strong showing.


Meanwhile, [SCCC] comes back for a 2-1 score to force a Game 4 with [AP].

In 07 match, in game 5... Compliments to them on how they played... I like fleets that are versatile, adaptive and tactical.

Which is an upgrade from my comments on them 2years ago...

Congrats to the guys of 07... The finals await.. I will be watching you guys...

Game 4 on Crash Zone Alpha.  Bans:  Harugamo, Petrosomething, Stalingrad, Worcester.

[????] double Nevsky, triple DDs with a Marceau?  [07] double Des Moines, triple Smaland.

07's DDs take heavy early damage.  [????] concentrated near A, set to kite.  (Why? Did they expect an 07 push at A?)

07 with two caps and a small lead, spread evenly between caps.  Now one cap and there might be a contest at A.

[????] with a 150 point lead.  This match could go either way.

12:30 First Blood to [????].

07 trailing but now owns 3 caps (two contested).  They haven't taken DD damage since the opening.  [????] has many damaged ships.

07 takes the points lead, though down 1 ship.

[????] takes out William the Dank's Montana for the lead, but holds no scoring caps.

Wow!  07 wins with last-second trades!!  Hail the King
