Thought you were done with casts of cp_process? Not so – come next week we’ll be trawling Div 6 for fixtures just to keep that American flavour around for a bit longer. Tonight’s Week 5 meeting of Lutuset and / uV Ninjas once again should set the stage for failed roll-outs and mixing up of “computer room” and “sewers” calls.
Complementing this season’s newest map will be the mainstay of pickup games throughout the world, cp_badlands, a map which underlines the differing fortunes of the two teams so far. Lutuset’s Week 6 performance against Naughty Badmen (now known as myDGB.net) may have turned up a close 2-3 golden cap loss on Badlands, but that is rather less convincing than uV’s 5-0 victory over myDGB on the same map. In light of these contrasting results, we should expect uV to have the edge in tonight’s second half.
As a result of TwistedPlay folding, Lutuset’s are now without a win so far this season, making do with a host of draws and a single loss. They will have to start strongly on Process and hope that they can ride their luck through the aggressive play by uV on Badlands.
uV have two games under their belt so far, with the aforementioned game against myDGB ending in a draw, and then a straightforward victory over Elemental Violence in Week 2. If you recall, it was the latter of these fixtures where we first saw the play of mysterious uV superstar CommanderX, whose incredible airshots swung the clutch encounters uV’s way. With Forsak3n struggling to find a sixth man for tonight after the departure of Hitman, it may be a chance for a second showing for CX, or any hopefuls spamming “trial mix merc” in IRC.
While the results so far clearly mark uV as favourites, Lutuset should not be discounted lightly, as their record shows consistent performances against the other offerings of Div 1. With the Finns on their third night of officials in a row, you can be sure they are in the right mindset for a fight.
Lutuset Jose, Lzrd, MInd, Cauthon, Santtu, Tumpelol
uV Gaming Forsak3n, ? CommanderX ?, Redzzzz, Whiteglow, reko, Blade
