There was a perfect storm of delays surrounding the event. Week three was initially delayed for a week, then two weeks, then indefinitely as Mixer shut down and Ninja didn’t have a place to stream.

Ninja has yet to announce an exclusive deal with any platform, but finally picked up the Ninja Battles series on Twitch, starting August 13. We can only hope that the last three weeks of competitions can proceed as planned.
This was the first Ninja Battles on Twitch, and the first Ninja-less Ninja Battles. The streamer was, surprisingly, absent from his own event. Even without Ninja, himself, the event was entertaining, as always.

The tournament was a tight one, with multiple teams in the hunt to win the event going into the last game. Reverse2k and his trio were in first place for almost the entire event until the end, and the trio of Stretch, Zayt, and Saf used the Catty Corner loot to win back-to-back games in the middle of the competition.
When it was all said and done, though, the trio of Khanada, Bucke, and Kreo won the tournament after clutching-up in the final game.
The rest of the results are as follows:
2. Riversan, Zyfa, Nosh
3. Reverse2k, Mero, Deyy
4. Cloud, Ferrrnando, Iciev
5. Yung Calc, Clix, Mackwood
6. Arkham, EpikWhale, Rehx
7. Keys, Slackes, Illest
8. Stretch, Saf, Zayt
9. Av, Shark, Knight
10. UnknownArmy, Benjyfishy, Crr
11. Scoped, Assault, Innocents
12. EmadGG, Cented, Commandment
13. Eclipsae, NanoLite, Sommerset
14. Bugh, Chap, Avery
15. Bizzle, Dubs, Megga
16. NickEh30, Replays, Edgey
17. Ceice, Paper, Jamper
18. NateHill, 72hrs, Funk
Some of the high-ping players showed-out on their away servers. The NA-West boys of Arkham, EpikWhale, and Rehx came in sixth while Crr and Benjyfishy of the UK joined UnknownArmy and finished in the top-ten.

This was a smaller tournament, but entertaining, nonetheless. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait another two months or more for the next Ninja Battles competition.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation?
