Trell — The Mad Catz sponsored Team Fortress Challenge cup, hosted by ESH comes to a close tonight, with 2 teams from the original 12 entries left standing.  Tonight’s final is almost an exact repeat of ETF2L’s Season 13 Grand Final with  Epsilon eSports fighting against  Crack Clan once again, with the only change being that instead of Snakewater, the first map this time around is Gullywash.

Both teams had a bye into round 2 of this Cup, and had a simple road to the finals, with Epsilon beating both  Lutunen and  qn. 2-0, while Crack Clan easily dispatched  Impera and  bff, again, both 2-0.

In their last meeting, the before-mentioned ETF2L final, Crack Clan began strongly on Snakewater and looked like they were prepared to win, but Epsilon proved too strong, eventually winning the map 5-2, while the second map, Granary, was a more one sided affair, with  stefan and  wltrs cleaning up as Epsilon swarmed to a 6-1 victory.

 Admirable couldn’t be reached for a comment at the time of going to press, but I like to think he would say something along the lines of (not that I’m a bitter, cynical hack):

“Potatoes will factor into this game, and we’ll win easily.  With the prize money, I plan to buy Trell the TT eSports Bag that I so callously denied him last time due to my ineptitude.”

I did manage to press gang  Byte into answering some questions in anticipation of the game though!

Me: Who do you think is going to win tonight and why?

Byte: Epsilon, i think with the sheer class they have, they’d have to be severely out of form for cc// to clutch a win, and as far as I’ve seen they’re still playing and practicing.

Me: Will the fact that first map is Gullywash instead of Snakewater make a difference in favour of Crack Clan?

Byte: May cause a slight upset at the start for Epsilon as they start really slow normally then hit 9th gear in a transition period of 2 minutes lol, so I don’t think the fact that it’s gully instead of snake will favour cc// (infact probably worse).

Me: Is Admirable the best medic in europe?

Byte: Admirable has improved to no ends but I can’t hand on heart say he is the best medic in Europe currently.

Me: Who do you think is going to be the ‘clutch’ player for both teams?

Byte: Between four players, Mike, Wltrs, Stefan and Tviq.

Cheers, Byte(.) for answering those questions.  The winning team tonight takes home €300 and 6x RAT 5 Gaming Mice, courtesy of Mad Catz.  Tune in from 21:15 to catch the action, with  Comedian on the stream, and  Pledge and  Skully providing the casting!
