The MRO Overwatch: Open - Project Eversio vs Paradigm6 Match Recap

The clash between the two Maltese powerhouses, Project Eversio and Paradigm6, was without a doubt a highly anticipated game. 

The first encounter of the match saw us heading to Eichenwalde which to everyone’s surprise had just been patched and adjusted as experienced in recent weeks on the PTR server, with changes having being made to the second checkpoint’s gate.

On the first chokepoint, we finally saw the first Torbjorn of the tournament, with Zwei of Paradigm6 pulling it out and using it effectively to hold the point until only sixteen seconds were left. 

This left Project Eversio with little time to push the payload to the second checkpoint. Paradigm6 made them sweat for it, having a five man resurrection from their Mercy keep them up on the defending side to force Project Eversio back at the last minute. However, with a last second effort they got the payload through to the second checkpoint on overtime, pushing it a further 45.65m before dropping and switching to the defending side.

After the switch to defence, Project Eversio weren’t planning on giving Paradigm6 an easy run, with the attacking side also taking up till the final thirty seconds to cap the first checkpoint. This however would mean the complete collapse of Project Eversio’s defense as Paradigm6 then bulldozed their way through the 2nd checkpoint and final range cap to win the first map and take a 1-0 lead.

The next round saw us going into Lijang Tower, our second king of the hill map of the tournament so far.  Being two teams that are considered virtual equals in skill, we expected a heavily contested close encounter. However, Paradigm6 were determined to show up strong and show their dominance.

The first round came down to the wire with a last percent finish for Paradigm6 to take it home. The next two rounds saw Project Eversio’s PKmlt switch to McRee as a counter to Paradigm6’s star player Got1ke’s Tracer. This however wasn’t enough, as they swept the next two rounds to take it to a 3-0 win and overall 2-0, to win the match and be currently placed first in the standings with four wins and no losses.

The winner of the MVP vote will be greeted with a fantastic car, worth roughly $59,000. This is one of the most, if not the most, significant non-cash prizes to be awarded ever.  So, apart from the $1,000,000 prize pool, which is already quite an impressive amount; players will be trying their very best to not only win as a team, but to potentially benefit individually through a pricey set of wheels. Other sponsors for the event include Pringles, maybe the car comes with a can of cheesy goodness as a bonus?  Details on the event include the location of, you'll never guess, Hamburg. Barclaycard Arena will be filled to the brim as fans from around the world will watch the top 8 teams go head to head over three days of jam-packed action.

Votes cast by fans will go alongside those of the talent themselves, with 60 percent of control awarded to the latter. Regardless of the prize at stake, it should be a great event as usual, also a strong start to another season of tight competition and tournaments.
