TSL Week 6:
This week saw more close matches than were expected. 21Z 3-0’ed Mortal Legion. However, Unwanted picked up a win from higher-ranked Cookie in a gruelingly long series. Skillosophy also took a game off first-place Red Alert, and 7th Fleet won its third game against Eclipsis through patient void ray play. The Praxeum-Lucky Punch game has been delayed a week. The top four remains unchanged, but Cookie ties back up with 7th fleet, and Skillosophy pulls up to 5 wins short of the top-four slot needed to make the finals.
Wildfire announced in the TSL and clan recruitment forums that Cookie would be withdrawing. The TSL commissioners have noted that since most Cookie members are not retiring, it is possible for the clan to continue without the ones who want to leave, but so far, no one has stepped forward to take leadership. Wildfire is not leaving Starbattle, but is leaving clan leadership. This story is still developing, but franky I couldn’t resist the pun. Best of luck to the remaining Cookie members.
