Tuesday night saw the opening matches of the two week, 500$ tournament, sponsored by Tt esports and CaseKing.
With a total of 500$ for winning first place, and 6x Tt Isurus for second, 52 teams signed up out of a maximum of 64 allowed.
Maps were as follows: Round 1 – Granary, Round 2- Turbine, Round 3 – Gullywash, Round 4 – Badlands, Round 5 – Gravelpit.
The Upper brackets round 1 2 and 3 and the Lower brackets round 1 and 2 matches were played over the course of Tuesday night, and tonight we will see the LB rounds 3 4 and 5, and UB rounds 4 and 5.
We saw [DA] beat Tplay.box? in round 1, then get knocked down to the lower bracket thanks to Anexis in round 2.The team with the name ’ ?’ (featuring baerbel and Nor) managed to overcome the mighty German Button Bashers on Turbine, by default, no less!
Most of the other big name teams are still in the tournament – some have already been pushed down to the lower bracket, ensuring some decent matches to come, with k1ck, infused, RAGE and YoYoTech being among the LB highlights.
In the Upper Bracket, there are some amazing matches to choose from tonight, with dignitas facing off against the ex-redCode players (now called TOOSTRONG), and the current redCode side facing off against Tt – expect a battle of the scouts in this match! TCM are facing up against ?, and the mighty PwR are challenging Anexis.
UB Round 4 starts at 20:45 CEST, and Round 5 starts at 21:30 CEST. Lower Bracket Round 3 starts at 20:00 CEST, Round 4 at 20:45 CEST and Round 5 at 21:30.
TF2TV will be casting matches all night, starting with the 20:00 Paradigm vs iM^ game from the Lower bracket round 3 (starring TF2TV’s very own ThePledge and Krimson), and continuing onto the Upper Bracket at 20:45 with the dignitas vs TOOSTRONG game. One final game will be cast tonight at 21:30, as yet undecided, but it will be an Upper Bracket Round 5 game.
