Sweetdreams proves again why he is the best IGL in the world
This victory was yet another impressive result for Sweetdreams in content creator tournaments. The 22 year old from Kansas is unrivalled when it comes to leading players in these mixed tournaments.
While there are other strong IGLs in the Apex scene, such as ImperialHal, Hakis and Dezignful – none can form people into a strong team instantly like Sweet can. In the Apex scene, teams practice and scrim for endless hours to work out kinks, clashes and mistakes. However, Sweet and his specific IGL style allows him to turn two players into a strong team instantly.

Time mix up leads to slow start
Drac revealed to casters Fallout and Guyblaze that their slow start was due to a miscommunication about when the event started.
Drac revealed that Sweetdreams had no time to warmup, and only arrived 5 minutes before the event started. This explains why they secured just 9 points in the first 3 games.
Amazing comeback led by Sweetdreams
However, once Sweetdreams got into the zone, they were unstoppable.
They earned an incredible 60 points in 3 games to steal victory from Tfue, Dooplex and Skittlecakes. To put into picture just how strong those 3 games were, those 3 games would’ve secured them 2nd place on their own. Their final game in which they secured 25 points was the second-best of any team in the whole tournament.
Even with Sweetdreams knocked, Drac and Golden were able to clean up in the final ring, securing the win and completing a fantastic comeback.
