|Team 1||Team 2|
Experimental jump inhibitors were used and a limitation of one rifle was placed on each team.
Aposiopesis was the first fighter out of the arena, taking the flay with her. Immeditaely heading west, the flag was stolen from her not long afterward by Cigi, who immediately headed southwest, given cover by Dassina (with a rifle) as many of the other fighters attempted to catch up behind them. Cigi made a loop around the quarry pond, then back north-east around the big hill and towards the north-eastern corner of the region, making evasive maneuvers until passing the flag to teammate Sandusky who took it back south along the pipeline, defended by Dassina and chased by Zeroyel. Kayvon’s evasive maneuvers took him to the Malt, along the south-eastern side of the region, where he passed the flag off to teammate Dassina, who made clever use of the lift at Crow’s Gladiator Arena, successfully staying out Team 2’s reach for half a minute, until Psycho was able to take the lift up after her and encourage her to flee. After returning to ground level, Dassina lost the flag to Zeroyel, who in turn fled attacks by Cigi and Sandusky while the rest of his team caught up. Sandusky managed to steal the flag and pass it off to Cigi, who headed south around the arena and expired from radiation poisoning just north of the Southern Garrison. Dassina grabbed the flag shortly afterward, taking it back in to the arena trailed by Psycho and KittyKat. KittyKat ran in to a spike trap while attempting to take back the flag, however time ran out and the match ended.
Round winner: Team 1
Aposiopesis again grabbed the flag straight out of the gate but again lost the flag to Cigi, who repeated her run out westward, then circling north around the big hill, crossing back over to the east side of Hambone slash. Having gained a significant advantage by taking her opponents by surprise, Cigi headed back south around the arena and remained unchallenged until members of both teams converged on her near the healing machine. Sandusky was able to take up the flag after Cigi collapsed from radiation poisoning. Heading north, he was able to evade opponent Aposiopesis for a few minutes, passing the flag on to Dassina. Dassina again ran to take advantage of the lift at Crow’s Arena, but not before losing the flag to Zeroyel, who ran away with it while the lift took her upwards. Cigi grabbed the flag off Zeroyel after some hot pursuit, but expired shortly afterward from accumulated injuries. Dassina caught up and grabbed the flag again for Team One. Dassina’s evasive tactics eventually took her back to the arena stage, where used the greater height to defend herself, but she expired from radioactive damage just before Sandusky took up the flag and headed north with it, trailed by Cigi and Psycho. Time for the match ended shortly afterward.
Round winner: Team 1
With two matches out of a possible three won, Team 1 was declared the winner.
