Thunder Earn Back to Back Void Cup Top Fours
Team Norse Thunder's League of Legends team achieved back-to-back top four finishes over the weekend as they competed in The Void Cup - the latest instalment of the League of Legends Clash series.
Day one saw Thunder claim third place after two wins and one loss while day two ended in a narrow defeat in the third and fourth place playoff match. The two finishes are being hailed as an impressive way to follow up on the team's victory in their debut outing back in July.
Game one on day one saw Thunder put in a dominant performance to win the match 40-18 in a little over half an hour, but game two slipped away after a huge team fight went to the opposing team in a match that was previously balanced on a knife edge. Game three was a walk over after the opposing team conceded before the match started.
Day two of the event saw Tiny step in as a substitute player to cover an open position in the support lane. Game one was very tightly contested match which went the way of the opposing team before game two, also tightly contested, went Thunder's way. Game three was a tough test for Thunder, and despite coming from behind to take the lead, the opposing team finished strong to leave Thunder in 4th place.
Speaking about the team's performance, Team Norse Thunder's Dave Scotford said: "This group is great to sit back and watch. They work really well together and you can feel the foundations being built step by step. It's a nice atmosphere and so I think success will come, for sure.
"They really pulled together as a team and made some really great plays. They're doing really well and it's now down to us as an organisation on how we can keep supporting them."
