On Saturday 5th May, Team Sweethaven travelled to Milton Keynes to compete against hosts Mirus-IT and Air-IT in a MSP Showdown. With 5 games to determine the winning MSP, who would come out on top?
After a two-hour journey up north, the Sweethaven League had arrived and we meant business! Going into the event there had been some serious trash talk between each MSP, however we were quietly confident that we would come out victorious! So how did we get on in each game?
Representing Sweethaven for the FIFA we had Diogo, Jake, Luke and Joe! With 3 out of 4 making it past the initial group stages we knew we had a great chance of winning. After the first knockout round we still had Diogo, Luke and Joe as the final 4, guaranteeing a Sweethaven finalist! However, with Diogo winning his next knockout round against a competitor from Mirus, it guaranteed an all Sweethaven final but most importantly a Sweethaven win!
At the same time that FIFA was running, the remainder of the Sweethaven team, battled out against some tough competition for Rocket League! With Andrew & Jamie getting knocked out in the group stages it was all on Jason and Daryl to get the win! Despite them battling hard and performing extremely well they unfortunately lost to eventual winners Mirus.
Everyone representing Team Sweethaven decided to partake in Fortnite. With this in mind, we rotated between squads and duos to try get wins and or high places to be on the overall leader board! After many, many attempts the highest that any Sweethaven team could finish would be 3rd. However, this was not enough as Air-IT won a game between themselves and ultimately, came out on top in the Fortnite!
Going into the last two games, all 3 MSP’s where tied at 1 victory each. With it all to play for, the Sweethaven team still had some big performances left…
Daryl and Jason stepped up huge for the Mario Kart. Competing in all the cups on Mario Kart, there was a lot of pressure on their hands.
With the final few races left, we were in a great position and eventually after completing all the cups, Daryl came out on top of everyone! Huge well done to Daryl!
With Unreal Tournament being the final game of the day who would come out on top? Could team Sweethaven lock up the trophy? Or would Mirus or Air battle back? All was on the line…
After some intense gaming and battling on Unreal Tournament, the Sweethaven League came out on top of not only Unreal Tournament, but the whole tournament! Massive well done to all who competed in Unreal Tournament and came out with the win!
By getting this win, Sweethaven confirmed victory and as shown above, the title of the ‘MSP Showdown Winners 2018’.
Gaming aside, it was a great day meeting new people and most importantly raising £738 for Macmillan Cancer Support!
It was an enjoyable day for everyone involved! Thank you to Mirus-IT for hosting a great event and also Air-IT for bringing the great competition!
We look forward to defending our crown soon…
