ETF2L Nations Cup Final – Sweden vs Germany!

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:

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?

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.

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.

Ireland are yet to play any games in the Nations Cup, so I can’t really judge how well they might do against big names such as  Mike and BoneS. Ireland have some well-known faces of their own, including the forehead himself, Admirable, along with audio-purist atmo. Wales have a perfect record so far, playing their one game against the mighty Denmark (no Danmark vinder this time!) and managing a close 5-4 victory.

VanillaTV will be covering this battle of the titans with Byte and Skully on the mics, along with Arie (or maybe Jon) on the camera, so join us from 21.15 cest to watch the action unfold!

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
