Swole Patrol defeated ownage in straight maps in the Grand Final to win Fragadelphia 12 and secure a lion’s share of the $33,450 prize pool.
Swole Patrol secured the Fragadelphia 12 title in dominating fashion. The stack entered the competition as one of the favourites and conceded just 1 map during the entire LAN event.
As far as other notable teams are concerned, Team One will be disappointed with their 9-12th place finish. Mythic ended up 7-8th.
Dignitas fe boasted a better finish than CLG Red. CLG Red bowed out in the Groups while Amanda ‘rain’ Smith & co. managed to secure a Top 16 finish at Fragadelphia 12.
Swole Patrol started with the decimation of their Group D counterparts. The likes of Snail Trail, Empire and Meraki never stood a chance against the Abadir brothers & co. In fact, they also brushed aside Hysteria and ownage in the Upper Bracket Round 2 and 3 respectively.
Their real test came in the form of Excelerate. But, Austin ‘Cooper-‘ Abadir made sure they bagged Inferno and a spot in the Upper Bracket Final. Swole Patrol looked well on their way to the Grand Final as they decimated Gorilla Gang on overpass.
Thereafter, Gorilla Gang fought back and took their own map pick to draw level. Swole Patrol lost their first map of Fragadelphia 12, conceding Inferno in Overtime. Braxton ‘swag’ Pierce & co. though, soon regained their composure and repeated the Overpass scoreline on Train to secure their place in the Grand Final and a top 2 finish at Fragadelphia 12.
The Grand Final was a rematch, with ownage stringing together a good lower-bracket run, including a sweep of Gorilla Gang.
The final was a Best of 5, with Swole Patrol having a map advantage. Ownage never managed to put up a fight and the Grand Final was as one-sided as their Best of 1 matchup earlier in the competition.
Swole Patrol swept Overpass and Mirage to secure the Fragadelphia 12 title. The stack will pocket $18,250, with ownage having to settle for $8,000. This is Swole Patrol’s first LAN title and it looks like the new additions are starting to pay off for the stack.
