This win streak continued into Tol'viron Arena as The Agents burst down the enemy with the aid of Earth Shock and Meteor. The team fought and won Hook Point followed by Maldraxxus Coliseum for the 4-0 sweep.
"We just played like usual," Asgarath said in the post-match interview. "I think coming into this Cup, we were more like aiming for top eight because it was not lookin so good for us, but we got some coaching from our business associates and we were able to pull it out the bag against all odds, so to speak."
