Version1land easier playoff path

By finishing top of their group, Version1 have earned an easier playoff draw with opponents Luminosity having placed fourth in Group A with a 2-3 record.

And "Zander" insists Version1 are confident of their chances against LG, believing they should represent softer opponents than XSET, who finished third in Group A.

Should Version1 overcome LG, then they will face either The Guard or Sentinels in the upper bracket semi-finals of the competition with the upper bracket final and grand final potentially next on the schedule.

Speaking in a post-match interview, "Zander" said: "We're going to be strong heading into the playoffs, especially against LG - we don't see them as much of a threat.

"No offence, love them, but if we did lose this, we would've had to play XSET which is tougher, but either way, we're going to destroy everyone."
