Today we sit on the brink of what will be the fifth championship of the CPA Central Legends Cup. Forever recognized as the most important tournament of the year, the Legends Cup is a tournament that armies all across CPAC and SMAP strive to be a part of — it is a tournament of massive sizes, major upsets, prizes, and the chance to take home a title only three armies currently hold. This year, however, no new army will be joining those names — the Light Troops and Night Warriors were both knocked out in the Semi-Finals — and this year’s championship will be fought between the Ice Warriors and the Nacho Army.
The Ice Warriors, a two-time winner, took home the Legends Cup II and the Legends Cup III in 2011 and 2012. They lost to the Nachos in the first Legends Cup of 2010, and suffered a shock loss to the Chaos Army during the Legends Cup IV. The Ice Warriors will be heading into their fourth Legends Cup Final, having only missed out on the final last year. They have been showing sizes as high as 45 during the Quarter Finals, but dropped to sizes of around 35 during the Semi-Finals.
The Nachos, too, are no stranger to this tournament either. The Nachos took home the Legends Cup I in 2010, and were the runners-up in 2011 against the Ice Warriors and in 2013 against the Rebel Penguin Federation (the Doritos placed third overall.) The only final the Nachos missed out on was the Legends Cup III, where the Ice Warriors faced off against the Army Republic.
We are seeing a battle that has happened twice before this year — and it is bound to be one to remember. The eight-seed Ice Warriors will take on the five-seed Nacho Army for the title of the Legends Cup V champion and a 5,000 Xat prize. Who do you think will win? Feel free to share your opinion with using the poll on the left sidebar, or by tuning in to our livestream or our chat discussion the day of the battle. Times are below.
