Indigo League Week Five – Here Come the Finals!

This is it. Five weeks of intense battles have come to a conclusion. Cool Cats will face Poke Battle Tower in the finals. 

Last week, Cool Cats defeated Mazer Gaming 9-6, to finish the season with 4 game wins, 13 match wins, and 40 battle wins. Poke Battle Tower took down The Elite Four, 10-5, to conclude the season with 4 game wins, 17 match wins, and 48 battle wins. Thunderlions put in an impressive showing over Regicide PvP, beating them 11-4, but it wasn’t enough to make a difference for the season.

What we have here is a good old-fashioned rivalry. It’s East Coast vs. West Coast, Hollywood vs. Y’allywood, Hair Metal vs. Dirty South Rap, Palm Trees vs. Peachtrees, In-N-Out vs. Chick-fil-A, Traffic Jams vs … Traffic Jams. OK, that last one didn’t work, but you get the idea. This is going to be an exciting match-up.

Not surprisingly, these two teams featured the Battlers with the best stats. Limonlime (PBT) entered the league in week 3 and finishes his 9 battles with a win rate of 89%, including 2 sweeps. So if you can do the math there, he only lost ONE battle. Auburnnnn (CC) only lost 2 of his 15 battles to end the season with an 87% win rate, including 3 sweeps, the most from any Battler this season. Wunderkind Wankowanyoo (PBT) rounds out the top 3 Battlers with 2 sweeps, and 10 out of 12 battles won for an 83% win rate. Special notice to PolymersUp (CC) who was the only other Battler to sweep more than 1 opponent; he finishes with a 67% win rate.

Final Weigh-In

It’s been a fun but exhausting 5 weeks. Keeping up with the action has been challenging. I can’t imagine what it’s been like for the individual Battlers. My thoughts are now on Season 2. What new and exciting additions will we see? New teams? More teams? A longer season? 

Personally, I’m a mediocre Battler. So being involved in this has been a blast. I feel included in the world of high-level PvP well before I have the skills to be here. I hope having this content streamed to you and available for you to read about has made you feel included as well.

Don’t miss my companion article where I talk to the man behind it all, Sosaflo. He tells us about the genesis of Indigo League, the process and production, and discusses some of the season’s highlights.

Have fun. Fight fair. And as my Uncle Jimmy used to tell his kids, “No pulling hair!”
