March Cup winner Sai/REV and February Cup winner YOLO | Rinf continue to dominate the top 2 spots in the leaderboard. Following closely behind is April cup winner S’S|GodTemur who made a huge leap to land a spot in 3rd place.

We’ve got five more SVO Monthly Cups to determine which 2 players will compete at the World Grand Prix! Who do you think will win the May Cup?

Huge shout out to members of the SVO Community for giving us such helpful feedback. Here are the SVO WEST April Cup Key Picks to provide insights of cards that played a distinctive role in the tournament.

For the class pick rate, Bloodcraft, Dragoncraft, Havencraft, and Forestcraft usage had significantly increased since March with a large decrease in the usage of Shadowcraft and Runecraft. With the exception of Swordcraft, this behavior directly mirrored SEAO. With the Darkness Over Vellsar expansion, cards are starting to find their places in meta decks.
