The winner of tonights tourney NM Godbless popularly known as “Basket Mouth” due to his non-stop boasting of being the undisputed champion of the world, showed that he is not taking the league lightly and is planning to become a top contender for the top stop. Though I reckon I am not in top shape yet, I managed to show the F4 King – Talldove that I was ready to destroy his renowned 1. F4 opening (The Birds).

The way I see it, there is going to be a number of upsets as 22 players take to the battlefield to be become the 2018 Challengers league champion. We will try our best to keep you updated as the league commences.
