Premier Weekly Updates | Fall 21, Week 2

Unified Premier 10/9/2021

OCT. 9TH, 2021   |   WEEK 2 UPDATES

 

Welcome back for more weekly Unified Premier updates! This season is off to an explosive start, and we’ve seen some great matches unfold in our League of Legends and Valorant conferences so far. 

We look forward to the start of both streamed Rainbow Six Siege matches starting this coming Monday, and can’t wait to see how October’s free-to-enter $600 Rocket League series turns out in the Community League. Catch this week’s highlights and read more below!

We expected great things and have continued to see them from the thus-far indomitable Maryville Esports team. After their season opener with a 2-1 win over St. Louis University, they swept their second week of UPL against Bethany Lutheran College with a 2-0. Also out for (first) blood, Winthrop’s A and B teams made a strong showing with victories in the Infernal and Ocean Divisions, respectively.

According to our analysts, and some great plays and wins secured so far, these are the teams we should be keeping an eye on this season:

Bay State College, University of St. Thomas, Wildcard, and AOE Dream. We can’t wait to tune in to the next streams! In the meanwhile, catch up on extra content like our bonus interview with the birthday boy himself, FrostForest of Winhtrop Esports.

Despite a few match reschedules, Valorant has gotten off to a fiery start as teams like UC Davis are showing up looking for a redemptive Fall season. We expect great things to come from UCD, as well as several other strong contenders this time around. 

One particularly hype-worthy series saw teams OC Esports and Grid Crusaders facing off in a full, three-game series. What started as an Icebox Map 1 win for OCE (13-3), Grid Crusaders clawed their way into game three after an impressive win (13-11) on Ascent. Map 3 took us to Bind and we saw QUADRUPLE overtime before OCE managed to barely cinch the win! What an incredibly fun series for our casters and audience, and what a well-played comeback after what could have been an easy 2-0.
