ETF2L Season 18 Week 2 Premiership Lazy Pandas vs BFF – VanillaTV


May 22nd Announcement
Tagged: arie Byte e-thug etf2l Season 18

Byte — Tonight BFF will play their first official in Season 18, due to rockit wildcarding week 1. The roster looks weird but also talented and experienced. With the likes of kaidus and Zebbosai dictating the game play and quality with Mirelin and Stark adding more +xp bonus to the team, all eyes will be on fl1p (I coming :3) and Knutsson.




Question is, will they be able to bridge the gap of being or playing for top 4 in ETF2L compared to the other members in the team.

Lazy pandas on the other hand have nothing to lose going into this, the fact that they are competing in prem should give them a hope and try attitude. With them already playing their week 1 official vs 4-25 and losing badlands 5-0 and narrowly losing gullywash 4-3, they’ll be looking to steal some points off BFF.

Having the experienced zoob and Hildreth may not be enough to dent or leave a bad taste with BFF.

ETF2L Season 18 Premiership Week 2 – rockit vs – VanillaTV + prizes to be won!


May 20th Announcement
Tagged: 21:15 arie Byte cp_badlands cp_gullywash_final1

Byte — Second week into the ETF2L Season 18 and it looks to be an exciting match between these two teams. Very contrasting in terms of team semantics. With rockit forming very late before signs up closed, that cheeky Irishman Admirable decided to tally along and be the veteran medic and guide his team to the playoffs.

rockit are yet to play any games, after they wildcarded their week 1 game versus BFF, playing their debut game as a team in prem tonight should set up the scene very well against the russians. who have already played and lost 6-0 against arguably the hardest team in prem this season Epsilon E-sports. While they know it was a long shot to win, I’m sure some of them will be glad they got this game out of the way so the team can build momentum.

Key players to look out for will be Forsak3n and ShaDoWBurn pairing, after hitler Forsak3n learning after me, and kicked msh, he had a few words to say about how he feels going into this match.

“we have no msh, its going to be hard”

May 15th Announcement
Tagged: cp_granary cp_gullywash_final1 etf2l Fenneks Esports saints

Byte — Looking to start off coverage of the ETF2L Season 18 Week 1 game between them super and lovable Swedes Saints, making a debut into prem, the odds are stacked against them, as their opponents are having a second run in prem. The experience and pace of what it takes to compete and make a mark in prem is definitely in favour for skeejs team.

Both teams will be looking to set the standard up and grasp the “easy points” from this game. Smiree, will have his work cut out as a fellow swede Ryb , the master of granary will be looking to dictate the middles and give fenneks that edge and momentum into the second map.

Season 17 Grand Final Preview – TF2 by the Numbers


April 6th News

Gentleman Jon — Firstly let me apologise in advance for an even lower standard of article than usual but it’s a bit of a rush to fit this around real life so I’m putting it out a bit early as well. I know, if I could cancel rl entirely I would. You’ll just have to do the proof reading for me.

Anyway, it couldn’t have been closer but TLR overcame incredible resistance from AWS to make the ETF2L Season 17 grand final. Reflecting briefly on the game, AWS clearly prepared carefully for TLR and radically changed some tactics. TLR played into their hands to an extent picking one of AWS’s go-to maps in Badlands but the combination of KnOxXx and Hys’s experience was able to eventually overturn their initial disadvantage.

AWS were just seconds away from overturning their Granary jinx in spectacular fashion but ultimately their bogey map proved too much to overcome. Hys was downbeat about his performance in the match and statistically he took a hit, and during the match (particularly on Viaduct) he seemed to be the focus for AWS and Flippy. MiG will have been watching closely.

Tip of the Hats 2014


March 29th Announcement

Arie — This weekend, the second edition of the Tip of the Hats livestream event takes place. Last year, $35000 (€25000 in real money) was raised in just 36 hours. This year things might get crazier still, with over $15000 worth of items (as of today) to be raffled off: last year for every $1 in prizes, $7 was donated.

Over the two days of streaming you’ll get to see nearly every aspect of TF2: pub, highlander, 6v6, ultiduo, MGE, surfing, jumping and crate unboxing simulator 2k7. At the same time you get to enter continuous raffles for prizes, and there’s some really interesting ones. Like the chance to win every craft and promotion hat in the game, or the contents of 200 crates.

I was going to paste a Eurofied time schedule of the event here, but since daylight savings time ends in Europe this weekend my brain broke trying to convert the timezones. So take a look at the official schedule here and figure it out for yourself, or trust my time conversion skills.
