Originally seeded 3rd, Curse dominated the tournament and won every best of 3 set in 2 games along the path to victory. Their team play was marked with inventive strategies and consummate patience of which tournament MVP PonPon illustrated like no other. Using gods typically deemed "nonviable" and making significant build changes during matches made him a chaotic threat in every Curse matchup.

The current full roster of Curse.NA is Zapman (Captain), PonPon, Sparks, ShadowQ, TheBest, & Zerogarz (Substitute). Check the section below for Match Summaries and replay instructions to see every tournament match, and follow Curse's path to victory!
