Setting The Stage
For the first time this year, the NLC will feature LAN competition. Both finalist teams will be flown out to the NLC headquarters in Berlin, where they will engage in the battle for the NLC crown.
On one side, there is Dusty. This organisation has been a part of the NLC since its inception in the Summer of 2020. However, the Icelandic team never found success until 2022, twice having the threat of relegation loom over them. This Spring, Dusty turned a page, and began to show promise. Fourth place in the regular season was followed by third in the playoffs after a dominant lower-bracket run. This summer, their star continued to rise. With a ten win streak they claimed first place in the regular season. Can they match this feat in our Grand Finals?
Looking to stop them are X7. Unlike Dusty, X7 are new kids on the block. The Manx organisation exploded onto the scene at the start of 2022, and immediately showed that they meant business. Filling out their roster with huge names, such as Kasing, Tempt, Haru, and now Attila, X7 quickly became the team to beat in the region. They obliterated the opposition in the Spring playoffs to earn their first NLC title. Will they pull of a repeat this Saturday?
