Twitch Vod (Cast by: Harringzord, Gerbear)
Overview: Bloodsuckers Inc. launched to equal, and maybe break, their record of reaching Round of 8 in season 7, while claiming a Triple Scalp on the way. Play on the Music will continue to defend pink jerseys as a valid choice and try to dodge the deathfloor assaults.

Death Then Dishonour vs Gloom & Zoom
Barmution (Necromantics) vs Ficction (Necromantics)
Twitch Vod (Cast by: Krusader, Miraskadu)
