Flesh and Blood's fourth Road to Nationals event kicked-off on Saturday at Cat Footprints Playground, in Taoyuan City, Taiwan, with twenty-eight players ready for a day full of competitive combat and great games! The metagame breakdown displayed Ninja and Guardian well ahead of the other classes in terms of representation at over 45% between them! Each other class had a pretty even showing, with Warrior being the slight favorite of the underdogs.
When the day came drawing to an end after the Swiss rounds of gameplay, the Top 8 emerged. Ninja, Mechanologist, and Warrior shared equal seats of 2 apiece, leaving a room for an independent Brute and cast-out Wizard.
The quarterfinals saw the tragic loss of the Brute and Wizard wildcards as well as a Ninja and Warrior. Dash the Mechanologist is at large for the semifinals bracket.
The Warrior was put to the sword and one of the Mechanologists run out of steam. It's a Ninja vs Mechanologist finals.
Both of these classes attempt to prove their mettle by being the fastest and agile combatants around, but only one can win this race!
