After weeks of settling for the second spot, Bren Epro’s Maru “Maru” Sy finally took the lead while the struggling Alexandre “AK” Laverez of Playbook scored a huge win on the second day of the group stages to climb up the standings of The Nationals Season 3 Tekken 7 Conference, Wednesday.
The Bren Epro star put on a show on the second day, sweeping Happy Feet’s Jim “Don Argus” Casimiro and Playbook’s Jassen “JS5N” Capuyan, playing Bryan and Kazumi, respectively.
Maru, who was trailing Smart Omega’s Juliano “Jules” Lozano all throughout the season, finally grabbed the top spot with 30 points through a league-best 25-11 win-loss standing.
Meanwhile, defending champion AK finally got his rhythm after struggling all throughout the season. He took down the Smart Omega duo of Mark “MachineHead” Eking and Jules via 2-1 and 2-0 results.
AK (19-16), who spammed Law in both series but used Akuma to end MachineHead, is now tied for the fifth spot with STI’s Michael “Hapon” Magbanua (18-15) with 22 points each.
Jules, on the other hand, slipped to the second spot with 25 points through a 19-12 card. Cignal’s Ralph “Vermillion” Cueva also scored important victories to nab the third spot with 24 points and a 19-15 standing.
Happy Feet’s Jeffrey “Coffee_Prinz!” Gonzales fell to the fourth spot with 23 points through a 20-17 slate while MachineHead (17-18), who was at the fourth spot in the previous day, settled for sixth place with 21 points tied with Cignal’s Daniel “Kunicat” De Leon (17-15).
