Zunday was expected to be the stronger team and won. However, Pyro4ic tried to make it as challenging as possible and showed serious opposition in three of the eight rounds.

posted: Nov 26th, 2013 The 4way part of SkyQuest 2013 brought together the teams that could not get enough of 4way competition before the year is over.

The duel between SDC Accelerando and Teiwaz in the AA Class may have featured a unique leaderboard situation. Both teams tied their scores in six of the ten rounds, five of them consecutively. In fact, it was even closer... (more)
