Foo wins Overdrive Series Week 4 + BH @AMurderOfBears is going to EVO!

The Overdrive Series has come to a close! Here are your final results for Week 4!

For the fourth week in a row, BH BjornSonOfBear enters the Top 8 from the Winner’s side, but this time he faces a new threat named Foo, who packs a duo of Potemkin and Kum Kaehyun (the latter character appears in almost every match from this bracket!). After such godly consistency, Bear is finally dropped into Loser’s Bracket after a nail-biting series of five matches with Foo’s Kum Kaehyun! Other than when he hit Loser’s Bracket back during Week 2 due to a late showing, this is his first loss on record for the Overdrive Series.

However, he runs that match-up back with Voguekun in Loser’s Finals. This time, the 3-2 outcome is in his favor rather than the other way around. His confidence and momentum restored, he faces Foo once again, this time in Grand Finals. Bear is confronted with the task of winning two consecutive best-of-five sets, a trial that proves difficult considering his opponent’s skill. The set is once again extended to five games as the two struggle to overpower each other’s gameplan. Bear fights admirably, but he once again falls to Foo 2-3. This outcome brings about the end to his domination in the Overdrive Series, and Foo rises up as the new champion!
