Reply Totem's trio of Brawl Star players went undefeated in the two-day event and were only truly tested in the upper-bracket final when they faced a Tribe Gaming team desperate to avoid a difficult lower-bracket final against SK Gaming.
The tournament was held at Gamescom in Cologne, and German org SK Gaming had the support of a young and boisterous crowd. That support helped the side get an unlikely 3-2 victory against Tribe Gaming, setting them up for the grand final against Reply Totem later that day.
If Reply Totem looked fallible against Tribe Gaming, they soon reminded everyone why they have come to dominate Brawl Stars esports in Europe, with Erik "IDarkJoker" Bravo Granström, in particular, excelling in the mutli-game mode format.
The German is their most recent signing, and based on his performances over the last two months, he has shown that in this region at least, he has few equals. He made easy work of SK Gaming, which included coming out best in a 1v3 that made his opposition look silly.
Reply Totem will now be turning their attention to the Brawl Stars World Finals. With their place already secure, the focus will be on maintaining this form through September and October to arrive at the showpiece event with every opportunity of being crowned the best team in the world.
The Snapdragon Pro Series continues next week at PAX West in Seatle, where the top four teams from North America will be battling it out to be crowned that region's champions of the Snapdragon Mobile Challenge.
MobileMatters is in partnership with ESL, the tournament organizers behind the Snapdragon Pro Series.
