Hail to the Champions!

DonJimbo posted Jun 10, 14

Congratulations to the players of The Lucky 13, who won the CTL season 6 grand finals 6-3 over CTL Team 6. This was only the second season in the league for The Lucky 13. Lucky 13's success perhaps defied common expectations in light of the team's last place finish in season 5. But it seems The Lucky 13 never doubted themselves. During the pre-season, the team challenged and defeated the four-time back-to-back CTL champions, Team Unrivaled, in an all-kill match. That was enough to put everyone on notice that The Lucky 13 was going to be a serious contender in season 6.

However, the Lucky 13 stumbled out of the gate, dropping two close 5-4 matches to StraTk Gaming and All-Inspiration. Those two losses left the team in the middle of the pack, well behind seemingly invincible CTL Team 6. But the season is 11 weeks long, and the Lucky 13 never lost again after week 3.

The second and third place teams, CTL Team 6 and Guns and Roaches, also deserve to be congratulated for an excellent season. Likewise, the fourth place team, Team Unrivaled, showed a remarkable second half of the season in which they climbed from almost last place to make the semi-finals, where they were narrowly defeated by The Lucky 13 in a 5-4 series.

CTL would like to thank everyone for making Season 6 a great experience. There have been a tremendous number of promotions -- some players have even been promoted from Silver or Gold all the way to Diamond. The rivalries and friendly competition between the teams is fun, but the real goal of the league is to provide a place for individual players to grow and improve. Judging by that metric, the league is a great success. Cheers to everyone, and here's looking forward to Season 7!

StudPuffin Lets do it again next season, boys!
RazGriz congrats L13 well deserved, better watch your backs for s7!
Metalcore L13 fighting!!! Awesome post DJ.

Forum etiquette

Hello fellow CTL members, 

It has come to our attention that the forum etiquette rules are often broken.
We would like to point out that from now on these rules will be more heavily enforced.
