When it came down to championship Sunday, Kungarna fought hard against No Money Just Funny, with Kungarna earning the first point after bursting down the enemy Mage. Then, Ashamane’s Fall went to Kungarna again as the team’s Priest, Mage and Rogue relentlessly pressured the enemy Mage.

Although No Money Just Funny’s Mage broke away from two of them, it was futile as Kungarna’s Rogue was right on his heels. No Money Just Funny’s Mage popped Ice Block, but Kungarna’s Priest cast Mass Dispel to secure the win. The final game between both teams happened in Tiger’s Peak, with Kungarna taking down the opposing Mage with a combination of pressure, Combustion and Kidney Shots.

Also on Sunday, Kawhi duked it out against the Golden Guardians, obtaining a score of 3-1. Kawhi claimed victory in the Nagrand Arena with the help of their Rogue using Grappling Hook followed by a Kidney Shot on the enemy Hunter. Although the Golden Guardians tied the score in Ashamane’s Fall next, it wasn’t enough as Kawhi’s Rogue and two Paladins took the enemy Hunter down to win Hook Point.

For the match point in Empyrean Domain, the Golden Guardians closed in on Kawhi’s Rogue, pressuring him to kite attacks. Both of Kawhi’s Paladins reached their Rogue in time, throwing down two Hammer of Justice stuns on the opposing Priest. Although the Priest narrowly escaped, it wasn’t enough as Kawhi set their sights on the Golden Guardians’ Hunter and defeated him.

The WoW AWC Circuit will resume next weekend (June 18-19) on the official World of Warcraft YouTube channel.
