Leftism — The ESL Premiership playoffs continue tonight as K1ck eSports, who quite surprisingly won the previous round of the playoff against TCM Gaming, takes on Team Thermaltake in the third round of playoffs.
K1ck, having finished fifth in the Premiership table, had to beat redCode a few weeks ago to get this far whilst TCM’s third position guaranteed them a bye through to the second round. Early team news indicates the TCM camp will be down a man tonight as antty is still on holiday – VanillaTF2′s own Torden will be his replacement. No news regarding any changes in k1ck’s lineup but if anything unfolds we’ll be sure to post it as soon as we can.
The maps to be played are the usual suspects: Badlands and Granary followed by a Gullywash as the decider map. Tune into VanillaTV who will be covering the action as it unfolds with casters flushy and Greg.
Following their loss in the upper bracket final to Germany a couple of weeks ago the UK will be looking to bounce back against a Spanish side they had already beaten in the first round of the upper bracket and certainly fancy their chances of repeating the result. Spain, meanwhile, having progressed through the entirety of the lower brackets to get here taking a number of scalps: first, the previously undisputed kings of TF2, Finland, before beating Sweden and fierce rivals Portugal in the following rounds and have certainly shown to be no pushovers as a result so it promises to be an interesting game.
Tonight’s match will see the familiar maps Badlands and Granary played with a potential Gravelpit decider! Tune in to VanillaTV tonight with casters AcidReniX and Beta covering the action.
