Byte — Boy have we got 2 mouth watering semi finals tonight, after the previous champions Germany were knocked out by the USA last week. France have a chance to grab that Cup off the Germans after being runner up last year.

Having said that, Finland have been practicing for this nations cup my informants tell me, it’s almost as if they believe they should win it, however France will have other ideas, after a dominant display against Denmark winning 5-0 & 2-0 respectively on gully and badwater.

After the few performances we’ve seen Rouhe shine quite alot for Team Finland as sniper, will he be able to take on the likes of Flippy? Obviously one of the key classes to remove in Highlander especially on enormous open maps. k3 & Muffin will have to wear protective headgear to keep their heads for this one.

Join VanillaTV tonight at 21:15cest with Skully & Hildreth on the mics, and Rinta directing the play.

If this wasn’t enough coverage for you, we will be casting the second game on our secondary twitch channel.

The favourites in this years Nations Cup highlander have been, the very quiet Swedes, ploughing through the teams as if they’ve already won it, all be it unfortunately Canada defaulted their game due to the time zone difference and were unable to gather the players, which is a shame.

Having said that, Sweden have more default wins than actual wins, I wonder if official playtime with each other will be a deciding factor tonight versus the USA, we saw how they showed a clear dominance versus the Germans, and with the amount of official time being played, you’d have to favour the yanks to take this one off the Swedes.

A potential upset, or maybe just a sign from the USA in preparation for i49 to show a dominant display in all sectors of TF2, 6′s and 9′s!

byte — You couldn’t ask for more vodka than in this game. You can’t help but feel if you made a dare to both teams, to drink a shot of pure vodka for everytime they get a kill, it’d be a funnier battle; it’s a pity we don’t have the team comms for this one. Russia will be wanting to advance to the quarters , however they didn’t have a smooth ride, convincingly losing one game to the polskis on pl_upward and cp_gullywash_final1.

Finland on the other hand had a smooth grasp so far in this seasons nations cup, winning convincingly 6-0 in Group D, they’ll be looking for a challenge versus the Russki’s with the raw power Finland have, the favourites have to be Finland. Russia will have to play their finest hour of gaming in a best of 3 maps to gain a place in the quarter finals of the ETF2L Highlander Nations Cup.

Byte — Both teams, joint 1st haven’t got much to lose, a lose or win for either team would still almost certainly guarantee them qualification into the last 16. Finland have some hard hitters who we’ve seen in and out of division 1 and prem. Canada’s men will be finding it difficult to pull up a core rosters especially when it’s 15:30cest there time. VanillaTV will be providing you the coverage for this game tonight with Skully & SuddenlyStarMia on the microphones and AnimaL_ directing like a bawwws.

atmo — This week’s ABC cast sees the return of prodigal son-turned-cameraman Comedian, reuniting our familiar weekly trio.

With the first semifinal already completed, tonight’s match up between Finland and France decides who takes the remaining spot in the inaugural Highlander Nations Cup’s final against Germany. Will losing to Germany in the group stages work as motivation or intimidation for Finland? France have progressed this far without any losses to their name, which Finland will be hoping to change with a victory tonight.

Three exciting games tonight, with the ESL Country Championships currently at the playoff levels.  The stalwart  German side face a  Swedish team without  Ryb, but  Zebbosai is in instead.   Latvia face off against  Portugal and elsewhere, the  Spanish side faces  Finland, who I’m sure people are expecting to see play a little better than in their last game vs team  USA.
