We last saw Shopify Rebellion in an absolute stomping of EDward Gaming. They proved to be the force everyone estimated them to be prior to the tournament. In what was the fastest series in international Game Changers history, SR only dropped three rounds.

Now, the two teams battle it out. One drops to the Lower Bracket and the other takes on G2 Gozen. G2 is the team with a target on their back. A powerhouse battle of NA and EMEA could commence or BBL Queens might keep it familiar for yet another go at the Gozen.

BBL Queens vs Shopify Rebellion recap and highlights
Map 1: Ascent
Three quick rounds went in favor of Shopify Rebellion, but BBL Queens responded to prevent too large of a deficit. SR didn't take too kindly to that, punching back with a smothering defensive strategy. To no one's surprise, florescent was punishing BBL. She got an Operator in her hands and was off to the races. Before halftime, florescent boasted a 13/3/2 KDA.
The second half pistol round only saw one player of SR fall. They jumped to a 10 round lead with ease. The bonus did not go their way, however, as BBL finally put a third on the board. No momentum could be found with the state of SR's economy. There was nothing stopping them from getting the Spike down on B Site, preventing any chance at a retake, and sending the series to map two.
Map 2: Haven
A chaotic pistol round started Haven. Florescent took out three BBL players, but Eva netted three of her own to give BBL the opening lead. They didn't capitalize on it, though. Noia popped a couple of heads at B, grabbed a Spectre to take down a third, and tied it for SR. She then kept it rolling with 10 kills in four rounds. That set Shopify up for yet another incredible opening half as BBL had no answer..
The second half pistol round went to BBL, and in a mirror of Haven's start, SR retaliated and won with a much lesser buy. That opened the floodgates for Shopify. Nothing was going to stop them from racing to the finish line. Their defense proved to be no match for BBL's attack. And just like that, BBL Queens vs Shopify Rebellion sends SR to take on G2 Gozen.
