Gamers Assembly 2014 Banner

k3 — As some of you may already know, Team Fortress 2 in France, compared to most European countries, has what one might call a unique scene. An online league hosted by TF2 Connexion and supported by ROCCAT, a LAN circuit averaging four LAN parties a year for the last five years and LAN finals at the end of the season to crown the winner. We are indeed lucky. However, compared to big events such as Dreamhack, Assembly or even Insomnia there has nothing worthy of comparison… until now.

France clearly have the stronger roster in this match-up, with the exception of the battle of the Demomen between kaidus and Kounaa. The French players, whether they are in mixes or as part of a league, famously play together extensively, so they have the teamwork and experience to take a convincing win tonight. However, if England can pull it out of the bag, it will certainly be an impressive display – can kaidus’ damage carry them to victory?

Tune in to VanillaTV tonight from 21.15 cest with Admirable and Pledge, with Arie controlling the camera.

France finished top of their group, unsurprisingly, having not dropped a map, finishing on the maximum 12 points from the group stages. Portugal finished 2nd in their group behind Belgium, who were the only team to beat them in the group stage. France have an experienced Prem-level lineup, featuring the likes of Captainhax and ex-Punchline scout duo Plapla and Flippy. Portugal have their share of talent;  Haunter is a name everyone who hasn’t lived under a rock for the past 6 years should recognise, and  kiler4fun is pretty good at clicking on people too. With heavy hitters on both sides, this could be a close game.

Join Pledge, Skully and Arie tonight from 21:15 cest as always!

ETF2L Highlander Nations Cup Semi finals x 2! Finland vs France & Sweden vs USA

August 15th Announcement
Tagged: arie Bubble etf2l finland france


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!

Tagged: ABC Tuesday finland france highlander Nations Cup


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.

Trell — Confused?  Well, let me break it down.  Tonight we’re aiming to bring you two casts, both of them Nations Cup games, with Highlander and 6v6 represented.

ABC Tuesday will be covering a Nations Cup Highlander Playoff double-header, with the exciting pairing of Israel vs Finland followed by the equally tantalizing France vs Spain. As with last week, the ABC trio is minus  Comedian, which means  Beta will be streaming and casting alongside  AcidReniX.  The first game begins at 20:00 CEST on the VanillaTV main stream, with the second game starting an hour later.
