Finally, the time had come to determine exactly who qualifies for the ANZ HGC Premier League of 2018. With GG Go Next and Rich Gang having already qualified, the question came down to four closely matching teams taking only three places: Downfall, Nekomimi, QM Warriors and the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
For Downfall, Nekomimi and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, the challenge seemed relatively easy. For QM Warriors, most of their success at this point relied on the failure of others. Outlaw player Coffee made some excellent analysis leading into the evening determining just how each team could qualify after the night’s proceedings, and the odds were absolutely stacked against QM. However, in a night of surprises, the Warriors managed to qualify, and it was actually the single most qualified and experienced team of the preseason who ended up eliminated from the Premier League: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
This night, unlike Days 1 to 3, was split into just three rounds. Amongst all the games played, though, there were only three that affected qualification- and two of those were broadcast. The final game of the night ended up between two undefeated teams, to determine who was truly the champion of preseason.
