Grand Final Insider: Boston Revolt

By May 17, 2018

After a hard-fought battle for the Eastern Division title, Boston is in the Minecraft City Champs Grand Final. This is not new territory for the Revolt; Season 1 of City Champs not only saw Boston make it to Grand Final, but they took second place losing to LA. The Revolt have returned for another shot at the Shockwaves and the opportunity to take home the Super League Championship.

Week 1 of Divisional Play illustrated that the Revolt’s path to the Grand Final would not be easy as they faced fierce competition in the Eastern Division. Both Miami and New York threatened to seize the top spot throughout the match. Ultimately, Boston pulled out the win putting up 217 points in the process, the second most in the entire league for Week 1.

Boston entered Week 2 on a roll, but the competition was not ready to go quietly. Chicago jumped out to an early, but Boston came charging back during Domination. The New York Fury were not to be outdone though and came from behind during Crystal Crater to take the lead. Boston tried to regroup and retake the #1 spot in Zombies, but they fell the to the Fury, 209 to 202. Despite the loss in heartbreaking loss in Week 2 play, Boston held a 24-point lead on New York in the overall Divisional Standings.

The Revolt began the Week 3 on a mission earning a 14-point lead over New York with only two gameplay modes left to play. Once again, the Revolt faltered during Crystal Crater and the Fury took the lead, going up 183 to 180. Having learned from their mistakes from the previous week, Boston came back during Zombies, putting up 33 points to edge out New York with a final score of 213 to 212 securing their spot in the Grand Final.

After a nail-biting victory in Week 3, Boston enters the Grand Final looking to take the next step and bring home the title. The Revolt have displayed the heart of a champion; they’ve shown the character and fortitude to come back from a heartbreaking loss and pull out the victory when the game is on the line. But, will Boston be able to avenge their season 1 Grand Final loss at the hands of the Shockwaves?
