SuddenlyStarMia — As if the new season wasn’t exciting enough with all this preseason turmoil of old teams splitting, new teams forming (or reforming) and players switching teams more than  Zebbosai switches class preference, you lucky folk have the cherry on top of your proverbial gossip cake. As the dust settled after the qualifiers and  Admirable wrote the last “Pre-Season Movers & Shakers”, we made a cup of tea, tuned into Twitch and snuggled down in a slanky to watch Season 16 play out. Hold your horses! Week 2 has barely started and we already have a bit of juicy scandal at the top of the TF2 food chain:  Team Infused are on the brink of what appears to be a fold. With their Week 2 official vs  Team Decerto looming and 5 players on their roster, three mains have been removed by  ipz-, with  Zebbosai pre-emptively jumping the ship. “So what happened?” I hear you ask.

i46 – Americans dominate the elimination rounds

atmo — The double-elimination style knockout rounds of i46 have been running here in Telford all day, and now as we near the completion of this section of the tournament there is a pattern emerging: 2-0 victories by the American teams.

TCM Gaming’s exclusive area. No Tordencam patent infringement intended.

The first North America vs Europe battle came in the form of Leviathan Gaming vs TCM Gaming, in the second round of elimination games. A strong start to the game by  TCM saw them pull out an initial lead of two rounds on cp_badlands, with kaidus beating b4nny to middle quite comfortably, but a sudden pause by the admins reset the momentum of the game and LG eventually came out victorious with a 5-3 score. This renewed confidence inspired LG to a further 5-2 victory on cp_gullywash, knocking TCM down into the lower bracket. First blood to the Americans, followed up by a comprehensive 2-0 victory by Classic Mixup over Quarantine.

Greg — It may actually be happening; the ever prophisied news that I can never pin my hopes on… North American teams might actually be coming to a European Insomnia Series event.  I am always going to be skeptical regarding this sort of news, because of the dynamics of eSports.  How many times before this June have we heard leaked news and “all but confirmed” information that a U.S. Team Fortress 2 team will be crossing the Atlantic to compete in England?  I don’t think anyone has forgotten the escapades of Catman and Qun with their prodigious events – CatmanLAN and AmsterLAN.

This time however it looks as if Multiplay will help answer the EU vs. NA debate that has always fluttered above the heads of the TF2 6v6 community.  At this point, I want to tip my hat to the community members behind this initiative – The eXtv boys ( Extine Salamancer and Shadowpuppet in particular) and the support from Multiplay (mainly Tapley).  I am not here to speculate of the likehood of seeing our American friends in Telford, I shall leave that to the community.  I am here to discuss trials and tribulations the North Americans will have to overcome in the differences between the ESEA Playoff LAN, and the biggest Team Fortress 2 LAN in history.

Leftism — Tonight will see the ETF2L Premiership playoffs take a further step towards its conclusion as Team Infused take on TCM-Gaming in the semi-finals. This will be Infused’s first appearance in the playoffs as their second place during the regular season awarded them a bye in the first round. TCM, meanwhile, have had to overcome PunchLine with a 2-1 victory in the previous round to get this far.

The game will provide some interesting food for thought: Who will come out as the superior Demoman: kaidus or  numlocked? Can Infused’s Scouts Cookye and JoeyC contain TCM’s Finnish scouting duo Hymzi and  Rebeli? Will Fisshu stop relying on cap points to get up the scoreboard and start getting them frags? Only time will tell…
