The Everchosen Fall Invitational Recap
Last weekend, the Creative Assembly studio once again played host to a weekend of competitive Total War. The Everchosen Fall Invitational brought together eight more of the world’s top Total War: WARHAMMER II players – but only one of them could walk away with the biggest chunk of the prize pool. With newcomers and veterans alike eager for a chance to seize the title for themselves, there was everything to play for – but who came out on top?
The first day of the Everchosen Fall Invitational saw DahvPlays face off against Aerocrastic. Aerocrastic quickly took the first match with a very aggressive start, cementing his progression to the quarter finals with another win shortly thereafter. Next up was Xiphos versus HjalleNalle, with the two hectic battles that followed resulting in a 2-0 win for HjalleNalle.
After a bit of a breather in the form of a showmatch, two-time Everchosen Invitational champion Tlaxtlan Soothsayer speedily saw off newcomer Chief 2-0. The next matchup was KingoftheDead and Felkon, with Felkon also pulling out a 2-0 and further cementing the so-called 2-0 curse as day one drew to a close.

Aerocrastic and HjalleNalle had the first game of day two, but the 2-0 curse continued, with HjalleNalle taking two wins in a row and progressing to the finals. Felkon and Tlaxtlan Soothsayer fought next, the curse continuing as Felkon beat out the Everchosen title holder 2-0. Aerocrastic and Tlaxtlan Soothsayer then embarked on a tense best-of-five battle for third place, with Tlaxtlan Soothsayer shaking things up a bit by going the requisite 3-0 to secure a podium placement.
At last, only the Everchosen Fall Invitational final remained, with HjalleNalle and Felkon squaring up to try and take the title. In a shocking twist, HjalleNalle won the first game but Felkon took the second – the first matchup to break the apparent curse. However, Felkon made sure the following match was his, decisively seizing the next as well to be crowned the Everchosen Fall Invitational champion with a 3-1 victory – congratulations, Felkon!
