beach — The middle of the Premiership has been so tightly-contested this season; three teams ended up on 14 points: All Tied Up, Revoluzion la Metagame, and SOLAR. Since All Tied Up have dropped, with kaidus joining Zaibatsu, this leaves the two teams tonight, RLM and SOLAR, to battle it out to see who earns that 4th place and goes into the playoffs alongside Epsilon eSports, broder and Zaibatsu.
byte — Recovering from the amazing ESA tournament yesterday VanillaTV will be covering this mid-tabled game between Skidmark Central and RLM. Should be an exciting match for both teams, really requiring 6 points to stand a chance for that all important 4th spot. RLM have 4th spot guaranteed in their hands, if they beat Skidmark Central and then 90 Fov e-sports.
Arie — After a very long day, the first ESA cup has come to an end. The first proper online TF2 tournament in a long time had some technical difficulties; the tournament system determined that it was finished after 2 rounds of play and promptly terminated itself. This messed up the brackets for a couple of hours, making life miserable for the casting orgs, the teams and most of all the ESA admins. Thanks to some heroic efforts of them it all worked out in the end.
Despite those initial problems, we saw some great matches. A couple of rolls (anything involving Epsilon), an upset (Furbo Pandas vs 4/25) and an amazing semi-final. All the VODs will be posted on our Youtube playlist ASAP, here’s our VODs so far:
Riding the high of a tournament win, Epsilon Esports has decided to pick up the medic they were playing with, Raymon. This former div2 medic is joining as a backup medic initially, but if Epsilon Esports sticks together after i49, there’s a very high probability he’ll be their main medic. It’s great to see a player outside of the usual premiership ranks being picked up to join the number one team in Europe and we wish him all the best!
In other Epsilon news, they’ve taken some cues from Crack Clan and Broder, and have started a dedicated streaming channel. Chadtopia will be their streamer and should cast all their matches. Chadtopia would appreciate some feedback on his casting, so when you see that channel live, make sure to tell him how much you appreciate the time, effort and continued support of Epsilon eSports.
Trell — With swanky new sponsors Blackout Gaming, Club 3d and Hypernia, ETF2L is back for its 15th season of competitive TF2. This week is full of Premiership games with all 8 teams in action, but tonight, we’re proud to be bringing you the first of Season 15 – Crack Clan vs Revoluzion la metagame!
