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:
