Tournament First Round: Upsets & Heartbreaking Runs that Slipped Away

If there's anything that these tournaments teach you about runners, consistency is INCREDIBLY hard to maintain. Colmer scored the best run in the previous tournament and GoesonGhost had the best qualifier run in the tournament, but BOTH of these runners were eliminated in the First Round.

DonnyRekt, who has been somewhat inconsistent game to game, showed off his prowess and knowledge in Bloodborne and eliminated FaraazKhan with a comfortable lead. Mogenkai went into his match knowing the godlike powers of his opponent, Kwitty23, and despite his best efforts, he too was eliminated. Kwitty had the best run in the entire tournament so far, scoring a 1-hit run at a quick 1 hour 42 minute pace.

Squillakilla was similarly on pace for a great run, but a few rare hits added up to a 5-hit finish for him. He was able to eliminate GoesonGhost and advance to the semifinals, but that performance won't likely carry him into the finals. But knowing how Squillakilla operates, we're likely to see the well oiled machine that he is going into the semifinals on Saturday (February 2).

One of the most interesting runners to surface in this tournament though is Eden_Issue, whom many were unfamiliar with prior to the tournament, but they're going to remember him now. He's fast, consistent, and has deep Bloodborne knowledge.

We return to the semifinals and finals (back to back) next Saturday, Feb. 2 at 10 am EST. These final matches are going to incredibly competitive. See you at game time!
