Hit Read more to take a look at who will be joining our Top 8 teams going forward
Joining our top 8 teams going into the dual elimination knockout stages of the tournament will be the following teams. Some of the names you will no doubt recognise and should provide some great matches for us to cover.
Byte — Boy have we got 2 mouth watering semi finals tonight, after the previous champions Germany were knocked out by the USA last week. France have a chance to grab that Cup off the Germans after being runner up last year.
Having said that, Finland have been practicing for this nations cup my informants tell me, it’s almost as if they believe they should win it, however France will have other ideas, after a dominant display against Denmark winning 5-0 & 2-0 respectively on gully and badwater.
After the few performances we’ve seen Rouhe shine quite alot for Team Finland as sniper, will he be able to take on the likes of Flippy? Obviously one of the key classes to remove in Highlander especially on enormous open maps. k3 & Muffin will have to wear protective headgear to keep their heads for this one.
Join VanillaTV tonight at 21:15cest with Skully & Hildreth on the mics, and Rinta directing the play.
If this wasn’t enough coverage for you, we will be casting the second game on our secondary twitch channel.
The favourites in this years Nations Cup highlander have been, the very quiet Swedes, ploughing through the teams as if they’ve already won it, all be it unfortunately Canada defaulted their game due to the time zone difference and were unable to gather the players, which is a shame.
Having said that, Sweden have more default wins than actual wins, I wonder if official playtime with each other will be a deciding factor tonight versus the USA, we saw how they showed a clear dominance versus the Germans, and with the amount of official time being played, you’d have to favour the yanks to take this one off the Swedes.
A potential upset, or maybe just a sign from the USA in preparation for i49 to show a dominant display in all sectors of TF2, 6′s and 9′s!
byte — Back for some more highlander action following on from Sunday’s action between Russia vs Finland. This time it’s the vikings chance to dent Netherlands dreams of advancing to the quarter finals.
While both teams Denmark and Netherlands haven’t had a roll with the results, they will be looking to make their presence known tonight.
byte — Back from the ETF2L final, we decided to cover the 4th cup in a row for ESA. Refining these unlocks being brought in. Sir Canfo has modified the list, to no quickfix now. Hoping maybe valve tweak it slightly..
Last week was more about it being interesting and see how the top teams managed to use these wonderful unlocks, and if so which ones actually were useful. Judging by the games last week seemed heavy become more viable along with the black box in which Gear made use of!
The last tournament seemed to favour the later start, as the semi-finals have been reduced to a BO1 format, so check-in starts at 14.45 cest and the tournament itself starts at 16.45 cest. The top 8 teams will receive a share of a £100 prize pool into their ESA account, and players who don’t have a Premium account can still compete for the Ozone Rage ST headsets.
Join our Byte, SuddenlyStarMia and our streamers Arie and bones from approximately 16.45 cest to catch all the action!
