FUT Champions Cup Atlanta Day 3 Recap
The day kicked off with Paulo “pauloneto” Neto against eventual finalist Tuga810, it was a close first game of the day that Tuga narrowly edged out, setting up a match versus Nicolas99FC who beat RastaArtur to book his place in the console final.
Nicolas99FC, who had been many’s favorite for the title including myself, was dismantled in that final though, losing a whopping 6-1 to the unfancied Tuga810.
On the Xbox side, Msdossary defeated his compatriot TheRoyal, while Tekkz defeated Michael “Megabit” Bittner, Tekkz went down an early two goals but came back to level the first match 2-2, before running away with it in the 2nd leg. It was something that would be repeated in his game against Msdossary. Tekkz went down early before overpowering his opponent with his slick passing attacking play.
It comes as perhaps as no surprise that Tekkz defeated Tuga in the final. He made the startling admission that he had never used the Xbox controller. Tekkz would win 3-1, looking untroubled against the unfancied Tuga.
After Tekkz Atlanta Win – What Next?
For Tekkz, the answer is easy. He is racing back to the UK to compete in the Liverpool FC qualifying.
