The Clash Royale League is over and Team Queso was just one step away from qualifying for the World Championship after losing during the play-off to Team Liquid
Last Sunday the CRL West play-offs were held, and Team Queso awaited its opponent after being runner-up of the regular league with a very positive end of season, having beaten all its direct rivals.
The previous clashes left Team Queso facing Team Liquid, the winner of the match would secure a place for the World Championship, but things didn’t go as expected and Team Queso ended up placing third in CRL West.
Even though the match finished 2-0 in Liquid’s favour, the games were extremely close. First Azilys and Dark Angel ended up losing the 2v2 2-1.
During the King of the Hill, with both teams tied in score 2-2, Beniju was one stab away from winning the game and reaching the third set. The opponent’s snowball was faster and with it Team Queso’s hopes of participating in the World Championship faded away. Dark lost the first game to Kanario, Rubén won his first game but was unable to defeat Surgical Goblin, and Benjiu beat the Dutch player to finally lose to DiegoB.
This is the end of this CRL split for Team Queso, whose performance during the competition has been excellent, dominating the regular league and beating some of the most powerful teams and finishing a mere a step away from the World Championship. The team was second in the overall standings with an 8-3 score, only below SK Gaming, whose only defeat was at the hands of Beniju and Co.
Fuyur, Clash Royale manager of Team Queso and after being in Los Angeles throughout the competition shares his opinion about this split: “It has been without a doubt the best Clash Royale competition so far. Teams brought the best players out there in the best shape, and we saw great marches during the whole competition. I am very proud of our boys especially after the first split which wasn’t so good.”
The work of everyone involved during these 2 months has been stellar and after swallowing this defeat they will return stronger than ever. We are talking about Fuyur (manager), Termisfa (coach), AlvaroGL (analyst) and the players, Beniju, Cuchii Cuu, Azilys, Rubén and Dark Angel.
The Clash Royale World Championship will be taking place in December, also in the Californian city and Team Queso wishes good luck to all participating teams hoping it will be a great show for all fans of this eSport.
We want to thank all the fans and all those who have supported and followed the progression of the team during this competition. We regrets not having been able to get a better result in the end and will return next year even stronger.
