Albion 3 kicked off yesterday and Yackabean was in action, while celebrating his 2 year anniversary, in a total of 4 games in his D3 pools. The results as shown below do mean Yackabean is through to the next stage (top 64), but the single loss also means he has now spent his lifeline and any further losses will see him drop out of the competition.

The top 64 bracket starts in just over 2 hours from now (scheduled midday) live from London and Yackabean starts against azreal. He knows things won’t be easy and has his back against the wall, but will look to start strong this afternoon to try and battle back through that lower bracket like we all know he can.
Holy shit this losers run is actually Toon Link’s worst nightmare. Cloud, Diddy, Corrin, just to give a few.

If he is to make it as far as he did at Albion 2 he has to win another 4 consecutive matches. Anything more would see him finish even higher than last year. However starting with a worse seed this time around and with fewer entrants to school has meant less games and less opportunity with a more difficult field of opposition.
If we know Yackabean though, he certainly won’t be making excuses, he’ll switch on, turn up and look to take down some scalps like he did last year. Especially with Smash Ultimate coming soon, and this being widely considered as one of the last big competitions in Europe in this version of the game.
