Week 1 was a great success for SHL as there was 100% class submission and 100% of match results reported. It’s still very early in the 7 week season so it’ll be interesting to see how this list shifts as players adapt to the Last Hero Standing format.

ArthurRhodes picked up a 3-0 victory over Dunamis and Eridan picked up a 3-1 victory over Odeffen with captain JerryDamage picking up 2 points in his defeat by Amenwolf.
