We'll be casting Sword Art on9 vs Beast Mode tonight! A lot of stakes on the line for both teams:
If Sword Art On9 win the series in two maps, they'll be the first team outside of invite to finish a season without dropping a single map. Their main predecessor, halo on9 family, dropped a map in the semifinals and grand finals during their championship run. That being said, Sword Art on9 have only dropped 3 rounds so far in playoffs (11 rounds total across 20 maps played so far in the season), so it'll be interesting to see how the finals plays out for them.
BEAST MODE, while also being the first team to beat on9 (if they win the grand finals), are also getting revenge for the two maps lost in the regular season (5-0 Sunshine, 5-3 Granary). They'll be looking to bounce back after a shaky playoff run that saw them go down to the wire vs. just meatball in the semifinals and Rodney and the Stangers in the quarterfinals.
And, obviously, the $180 1st place prize is at stake too.
