I_aPOROgise wins the April Challenger Qualifier #2!

Cameron “I_aPOROgise” Cook secured the last spot in the upcoming GWENT Challenger!

The second Qualifier took place this weekend, March 24-25th, and saw 177 top Pro Ladder players fighting for the last spot in the GWENT Challenger which will take place in April in the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine. 16 best players from Day 1 of the Qualifier advanced to the second day of the tournament, where they competed in a series of best-of-five matches in a double-elimination format:

In his last two matches of the tournament, I_aPOROgise faced off twice against scion4eg. After a 0-3 defeat in the Semifinal, scion4eg was sent to the Losers bracket but managed to bounce back to battle I_aPOROgise once again. However, it was I_aPOROgise who came out victorious in the Final and became the 8th player to join the lineup of the April GWENT Challenger!
