On Saturday August 15, 2015, the west coast’s best glovers will fight to the death for the August BOSS title and the final guaranteed spot in October’s IGC Legends Bracket. Lights will be thrown, faces will be melted and our newest sponsor [UV] Blastoff Sloth will be representing the out-of-state glovers for his 5th BOSS in a row. All this we know for sure.
Everything else is up for grabs. With quality competitors looking to secure an IGC Legends bid, a host of new generation of glovers will look to challenge veteran studs like [PM] Gambit and [PM] JBake.
“This new generation of glovers is really pushing the limits,” Gambit said. “I feel matches will be so close to judge, I definitely wouldn’t miss it.”
With dangerous glovers like [PM] Cypher and [ION] Slayer joined by Emazing sponsors [iD] Crystals and [iD] Gameboy, Gambit’s concern is real. The younger glovers are hungry to prove themselves against the best, and SoCal Boss represents another chance for them to shine. That said, co-founder of the Tutting Movement JBake shared a similar view on the competition, although he was more confident about his odds of winning.
“I feel like each BOSS gets tougher and tougher, and anyone can take it,” JBake said. “But I feel like I have a strong chance of winning this one.”
While JBake speaks from experience, Blastoff actually watched the intensity pick up each tournament this season, traveling from his native Seattle to compete in Dallas BOSS and Miami BOSS. The out-of-stater claimed that the competition level was fierce at each stop along his journey, but he noted that the energy at the Miami tournament was different than previous BOSSes. The trend is expected to continue this Saturday.
“Since February BOSS, every following BOSS was more intense,” Blastoff said. “Everyone has been on their grind, so we should be seeing some of the most insane rounds to date.”
Competitors must check in at between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. to claim their spot in the tournament,.And as always, spectators get in free.
