TY earned his return to the Code S grand finals after over two years of waiting, defeating a plucky Neeb 4-2 in a thrilling semifinal match. TY had last reached the Code S finals in Season 1 of 2016, where he lost to Zest by a 2-4 scoreline.
Neeb—an underdog for the entirety of his Code S run—looked like he would beat the odds again when he jumped ahead to a 2-1 lead. TY continued the chain of proxy-builds that had helped him defeat Stats and sOs in the round-of-16, but Neeb seemed better prepared than his illustrious peers.
However, a thrilling brawl on 16-bit completely changed the tone of the series, with TY able to fight back from an early deficit and earn a draw. Neeb appeared to lose his edge after such an exhausting game, losing the re-game and the following two matches to end the series.
The Code S semifinals will continue with Maru vs Zest on Saturday, Sep 08 4:00am GMT (GMT+00:00)
