Gankstars Ceice and RBK Elevate

The games were pretty unfair as Epic added Boombox another OP item in the game which players had to learn how to use in between tournament matches. Myth who is cursed in all tournament matches, for him this tournament was no exception and died twice to fall damage because of some quadcrasher bug.
Psalm who played exceptionally good in the previous tournament when infinity blade was introduced before a tournament proved his worth in this tournament too. He and his duo mate Rhux waited for 6th or 7th circle to use Boom Box to use it effectively and it worked like a charm.
