European Open Weekend – Global Escalation Team Lists

In addition to the main Modern Format event at the Wizkid’s European Open at iHRYsko in Bratislava there was a number of special side events take place. One such event was Global Escalation, which took place after the Top 8 matches in the Modern event had concluded (The Modern Event was split over two days with the top 4 and final played on Sunday. You can find the team lists for that one HERE).

There were 20 players in total for the Global Escalation tournament. We played 4 rounds of Swiss and ran 45 minute “best of three” for them. There was no cut so placement was determined by your position at the close of Swiss.

A Few Quick Thoughts…

Global Escalation is far from my favourite format, but I have to confess this may have been my favourite event of the whole weekend, and not just because I placed third LOL. Thinking on it, I wonder whether useful tech like ‘Static Field’ (which is great Beholder and Ultraman tech) and the growth of the ban list following the North American events this year has opened things up a little and brought some variety to the meta.

Anyway – keep your eyes peeled for some tournament reports with more details later in the week. Later folks…
