It started perfectly for SK, as they took the lead on Blade's Edge Arena. Some nice kiting from Patrick 'Inflame' Costales meant that he survived long enough for his team to score a kill onto x6's hunter before Michael 'Toez' Edwards even had time to bubble. But game two was an example of how ridiculous beastcleave can be. Inflame simply got blown up, in the words of the commentators, "as if it were nothing."
Game three went on a little longer, but it was the same story again, with x6's uncontrollable damage proving to be the only difference between the teams. SK pulled things back on Nagrand in game four, thanks to some poor play by x6. Un-lusted Spirit Wolves and a complete lack of coordination gave SK the chance to run Toez out of mana, and that tied things up at 2-2.
Just when you need a bit of luck, though, SK didn't get it, as Dalaran popped up for game five. It was over in a flash, with Inflame being trained from start to seemingly instantaneous finish.
The result puts x6 top of the table with a massive +12 round difference. They are almost guaranteed to qualify, while SK will probably need to win their last three games to make it to Sunday.
