SuddenlyStarMia — Tonight on VanillaTV, we have for you the ultimate decider on who is the best 6v6 nation in the EU – yes, that’s right: it’s the ETF2L Nations Cup final! We’re gonna see  Germany duke it out against  Sweden here for €500 of prize money and bragging rights, with the runner-up receiving a measly €350 in a best-of-three match (with possible heavyweaponsguy melee-ing). Established runners-up  Sweden have had a flawless performance so far, picking three easy wins in the group stages and 6-0’ing all their matches in the playoffs against  Norway,  Wales and  Finland. However, the rookie  Germany have not dropped a single map in this tournament either, sweeping away  Italy,  Denmark,  Russia and defeating the defending champions,  England, in the semi-finals to progress through. Either way, we are in for a pretty thrilling game tonight, with both teams boasting strong rosters for this game, with plenty of players from the top-level teams participating to represent their country: the scout pair from Prem-winners/the-best-team-in-the-world,  Epsilon, look lethal on Germany’s side, however there is a lot to be feared in Sweden’s Zebbosai/ryb combo from the former  broder in the sheer amount of damage these two can force through.

We caught up with one of these players, superscout  basH for a few quick words before tonight:

basH: We weren’t really preparing for this match but with this lineup, there should be no problems. I still hope for a nice match since Sweden made some nice scores against other countries.

In the meanwhile, high-damage soldier  Zebbosai has this to offer:

Zebbosai: My first time pocketing since lan :D
Zebbosai: Well I did vs Finland too, I guess
SuddenlyStarMia: How do you think Sweden will fare tonight?
Zebbosai: I think we will win
SuddenlyStarMia: Why do you think you’ll win?
Zebbosai: We are better
Zebbosai: Simple :D

Some confident words from Zebbosai there, let’s look over at the rosters:

ETF2L Highlander Nations Cup – Germany vs Ireland!

July 23rd Announcement
Tagged: 9v9 arie etf2l germany highlander


SuddenlyStarMia — As we go on over to Week 3 of the ETF2L Highlander Nations Cup, we see a match in the group stages between last year’s champions,  Germany and the underrated  Ireland. So far, Germany has picked up a comfortable 6-0 against Iceland last week and a default win vs Israel in week one. In the meanwhile, Ireland are not looking so strong with a firm loss against Denmark and a default loss from Israel. Both teams need all the points they can to guarantee a chance to be in the playoffs. Could the Irish pull it back tonight or are the Germans just too strong?

We caught up with Germany’s Pyro, Anoobis for a few quick words:

Anoobis: I am feeling pretty confident going into the match tonight. Our roster is pretty strong even with a few subs here and there. It will be a nice match to watch. Ireland have a strong roster containing of highlander and 6v6 people and they should give us a good run. Maybe we’ll also see Admirable – that’ll be hilarious. Gravelpit should be really exciting to watch because in contrary to Viaduct, Gravelpit requires a lot of coordination – a lot of people have mixed feelings about it.

Whilst our favourite potatoman caster, Admirable, had just this to say:

Admirable: oh man it will be a rape
Admirable: quote me
Admirable: :D

The Rosters

 Germany
Scout – RazorsEdge
Soldier – KLar
Pyro – Anoobis
Demoman – Brego
Heavy – Schmuse

VanillaTV: Nations Cup 6v6 – Netherlands vs Germany

atmo — Another weeknight of TF2 filled with blind patriotism coming right up. After the atypical stumbling from eSports superpower  Ireland last night against the slightly more cohesive unit of  Israel, we hope tonight to bring you a rather more close contest. Star-studded  Deutschland take on  Nederland in this Nations Cup group stage match, with the latter having several notables of their own.

Making surprising returns to the TF2 limelight from  NL are old-timers Arie and Exfane, along with e-famer @Qun. Exactly how this potentially-rusty team fits together will become apparent in tonight’s two-map encounter, brought to you live on VanillaTV with casters  Chaplain and  Skully along with  Warden on the stream.

Skeej — As a last minute effort to provide for a quality game for  Pognon and Luzzu’s cast for the French gaming site, Millenium, our  German and  English friends stepped forward to revisit last ESL’s Nations Cup final and give the crowd a little taste of what is to come in the upcoming ETF2L Nations Cup. Will this game turn out like last time with Team England gaining a convincing victory? Or will the Germans have stepped up their game this time?  The results may be very different this time, as both teams aren’t playing with their full lineups, allowing some upcoming talent to show what they have in store, on both sides.

Sadly, at this moment there is no VanillaTV member available to stream this match, therefore the only available cast of this game will be the French one. A relay will be set up for those wanting to watch the game without hearing a croissant-eating Keanu Reeves and fake Frenchie shouting over it. We shall be providing you with a mumble only cast with Admirable,  CUBE and trial caster NigelWantsKFC for an awesome three-way cast.

The winner of tonight’s match progresses into the Grand Final, while the loser drops down to the Lower Bracket finals to face Team Spain, and gain another chance at reaching the Grand Final.

With stefan currently without the benefit of internet, it seems that Germany will have to find a merc for tonight, however, UK are in the same boat, with Greg jetsetting off a million miles around the world thanks to his work.  I did advise him to say he couldn’t go due to representing his country in TF2, but I don’t think he felt that was an appropriate thing to say to his bosses.

The (allegedly) ‘greatest scout in TF2©’, nVc will be mercing for Team UK, I am reliably informed, in place of Greg.

Ensure you tune in to what should be an explosive match, with both teams fighting to show that football isn’t the only thing that they can fail spectacularly at!

You can catch the game as it happens, with casting by that rascal Torden, and his straight man partner, flushy, on VanillaTV.
