Dynamo Dresden FIFA 2v2 Cup: DiDa & RIIJK in TOP8
German football club SG Dynamo Dresden, in cooperation with Esport Event Company, hosted a 2v2 tournament in FIFA19. DiDa & RIIJK went to Rudolf-Harbig-Stadion to participate in their second ever tournament as a team, after they took silver medals earlier this year at ISPO Digitize in Munich.
Interestingly enough, this event was played in “85 mode”. That means that all the teams had an equal rating of 85 and were then equally good. Our players DiDa & RIIJK played with SK Slavia Praha the whole tournament. At the beginning, 93 registered teams were randomly put into groups of 3 teams. TOP2 from every group would then advance to the playoffs. Best-of-one format was applied throughout the entire event, except grand-final which was played in best-of-three format.
DiDa & RIIJK entered the tournament really well. They managed to win all the matches in group 39. Their overall score was 21:2 (3:1, 8:0, 2:1, 8:0). Because of their best possible seeding, they got a freewin in the first playoff round. Next up was a TOP64 match against Justin Pietzsch & Tobias Berthel, which our players won 6:2. In the TOP32 match, our duo won 5:0 versus Phil Frenzel & Phillipp Hauschild. TOP16 match was really close until the very end. DiDa & RIIJK scored the decisive goal in 86th minute and won 1:0 against Felix Weinhold & Dave Eckhold. This was the last match that our players managed to win. Next up was the TOP8 battle against Efkan Agoez & Jason Genz which we unfortunately lost 1:4. These opponents played some amazing FIFA and went all the way to the grand-final.
