BWG Black versus Remnant rivalry
When BWG Black duked it out against Remnant in the first round of the World of Warcraft esports
action, BWG Black got pushed into the elimination bracket. Meanwhile, Remnant continued to dominate the upper bracket. This meant BWG Black fought hard to earn that top spot for an all-out rematch.
When it all came down to the BWG Black versus Remnant game, BWG Black showed no mercy. They took down Remnant in Nagrand Arena, Ruins of Lordaeron and the Dalaran Sewers. The team earned the gold after defeating Remnant in Ruins of Lordaeron once more. By pulling through with Hunter, Paladin and Priest, BWG Black had a 4-0 sweep!
