Weekly Wrap Up: Thunder From Downunder

Nomia took the Western Clash by storm over the weekend, putting up a fight and proving that ANZ has got what it takes to hold its own in the global scene. Day one saw Nomia take on Misfits and showing off everything they had to offer during the first game. Game two was incredibly close but saw Misfits advancing to the higher bracket leaving Nomia to duke it out in the lower bracket against Team 8. They put on a valiant show nabbing the win in game one but were unfortunately eliminated by game two. Never the less the guys from Nomia did us proud.
