Starting on April 15th, our players Mohammed 'Mo_aubameyang' Harkous, Kevin 'AssiaKevin' Assia and Savas 'Gooku94' Destanoglu participate in the finals of the Virtuelle Bundesliga.
Mo_aubameyang's first and sadly last game of the quarterfinals was against Niklas Raseck. In the first game, Mo_aubameyang lost with a score of 0:1 after Raseck converted a penalty situation. The rematch between the players was a 1:1 tie. Because Mo_aubameyang lost the first game with given score, he needed at least a positive goal-difference of 1 in the rematch to stay in the tournament. This means, that he was eliminated by Raseck in this game.
Raseck was able to get into the final, where he played against Cihan Yasarlar. The players tied in their first game with a score of 1:1, but in the rematch Cihan showed his dangerousness in the enemies penatly zone and won with a score of 4:2 against Raseck. Therefore, Cihan is the winner of the VBL finals 2017. Congratulations!

With the groupstage beeing finished, Mo_aubameyang was able to qualify for the semifinals tomorrow. Since he had ten points after his four games of the groupstage, he reached the first place in his group. Gooku94 and AssiaKevin both sadly ended on position four in their groups and therefore didn't qualify for the playoffs or the semifinals. Since Mo_aubameyang directly qualified for the semifinals and Gooku94 & AssiaKevin got eliminated in the groupstage, none of our players participated in the playoffs.
