It's SEA vs SEA as both teams fight for 1st place and that sweet prize money. Right off the bat we see why VOR deserves to be here. Game 1 should not be missed! FPM responds with their own victories. French destroyer spam brought both teams here, but by the end of Game 4, it's clear both teams are evenly matched. One of the teams decides to change the meta...

So... did they ban the wrong ship for the right reason? 

Time to go to Tier 9?

The teams are evenly matched and they know each other well.  Short of one of the epic O7 comebacks, this may be the best match I've ever seen!

Don't miss Game 5 when VOR takes the wolfpack concept to a whole new level with the Nevsky Buzzsaw.

Yes.  Game 5.

The fact that it went to Game 5 is a pretty good recommendation in its own right.

Here's my commentary at the time:


VOR👑 (ASIA) vs.FPM (ASIA2) for all the marbles.  Best of five (5).
This a rematch of the ASIA regional final.  Kleber and Harugumo banned.

Game 1:  Opposing wolfpacks deployed!  Let's hope they meet.  They do.  A well-laid wolf trap takes out a VOR Marceau. VOR's Kremlin dies, quickly followed by FPM's GK.  VOR Marceaux split rush takes out two ships and nearly three!  Oh the carnage!  FPM within 30 points of the win!  FPM Marceau detonates (no flag in the finals). VOR completely turns it around on FPM FTW.  A bloodbath!  What a game !!

Game 2: A difficult game to describe.  VOR wolfpack active; both teams with 4 DDs.  FPM takes a close game.  1-1

Game 3: Dueling wolfpacks ("Like packs of sharks").  Even game.  No clash yet.  9+ minutes, no loss or significant damage.  Expect a demolition derby when it happens.  It never happened.  FPM took the initiative and VOR didn't really respond effectively.  FPM takes the win.  2-1

Game 4: VOR has abandoned the wolfpack.  Instead, two Moskva and three Nevsky. FPM takes two caps right off, as they seem to every game. Classic signature FPM synchronized rush by FPM Marceaux on VOR Kremlin!  Both die while Kremlin survives! though badly damaged. VOR map control was outstanding and their pushes perfectly timed.  The team takes the win!  2-2

Game 5:  (on Trap map)  Interesting comps.  FMP double Venezia again.  VOR brings three Nevsky and invents the NEVSKY WOLFPACK with infinite radar and hydro!  They move like a buzz saw through A and turn NE to dominate B. VOR Marceau runs down and kills FPM DM from behind.  VOR is dominating this game!  WHAT A GAME!
