TSL Results Week 8: There weren’t any major upsets in TSL this week. Team 21-zero 3-0ed Praxeum, and Due Prejudice 3-0ed Unwanted, maintaining both of their positions in the top 4. Red Alert had a bye this week, potentially opening them up to catch-up by Eclipsis, but Cookie took a game off them with a well-executed early snipe of WarAlaster’s guardian in game 2. (Two of these games were casted by Fuzzy and the third by Prometheum). 7th-fleet shut out Mortal Legion 3-0. The closest series in terms of standings was
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.

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
