Byte — Tonight we see a battle of the points, for both teams in this case. The way Crack Clan see it, broder dropped points to Epsilon, thus meaning Crack Clan can potentially still end up 2nd or 1st but to do this, they must squeeze out all 6 points from the lower teams.
On the other hand SOLAR, will be looking to steal some points off Crack Clan, as their fight for survival in prem is always going to be under threat. Realistically and on paper Crack Clan should sail through, but never count out SOLAR, they have some fine individuals who may just shine and could make the difference.

Soldiers – Ipz and T-Mac

Soldiers – hycz and qnx
Scouts – maidu and cor
For those that don’t remember this match, SOLAR managed to sneak 3 points off Skidmark Central last week, which keeps them in the hunt for the playoffs and to stay in premiership next season.
Crack Clan will be going for a quick and easy 6 points and possibly trying to finish the maps before the end of the 30minutes. Find out tonight for an action packed match between these two, with VanillaTV casting at 21:15cet with none other than SuddenlyStarMia and Byte, alongside HeavyIsGPS directing.

Byte — Hi all, as it’s getting close to i49, broder are looking for some monies from this very generous community to get them to lan. Getting to lan especially as they all live abroad is not easy (flights/accommodation/food etc…), so they’re going to need some help.
So they’ve set up a donations page with an incentive to donate and maybe twist your arm into going for:
- The mentoring session by none other than the crazy latvian Mirelin or Zebbosai, you can get this for a measly 70 euros. A session which you will never forget!
- If it’s a bit too steep then settle for a signed weapon by one of the pro’s for just 5 euros (gift wrap must be provided).
- Or if you are broke, then 1 euro to get yourself mentioned on their stream
Arie — Tonight the (expected) bottom of prem teams SOLAR and RLM are meeting for what should be an interesting fight. Both teams will be looking at this match (and both their upcoming matches against LMS) as the chance to get some points on the ETF2L premiership table and fight off relegation.
Byte — An interesting game tonight, with broder still being the favourites in spite of the thrashing they got last week versus Epsilon E-sports. With the approval of kaidus saying it was just a ‘bad day at the office’ for Zebbosai’s team, due to the fact that broder lost their warm-up pcw versus BFF who had djc mercing for them.
The thing that runs into my head at the moment, is have broder still got that initial flame of wanting to show how good they are, do they still want to win it as badly as when they started the season? You see it in every team, normally that have just formed. The secret in beating Crack Clan and Epsilon for them will be momentum. If they have it, then both Epsilon and Crack Clan will face a massive force of deathmatch ability and team sync’ing on their hands…
Am going to keep my eye on the milkybar kid tek and see if he can deliver, along with the Swedish delight and legendary veterans bybben & Ryb.
Medic – Mirelin Demoman – ryb Soldiers – Zebbosai and Tek Scouts – cookye and Bybben
Quarantine on the other hand, have had a hard time picking up points this season, fair play they have played only top teams so far being, BFF and Epsilon e-sports, so what next for them? I’m never too sure with Quarantine as they always manage to maintain a level to stay in premiership, but never go further, would be nice to see them steal some if not all points off broder and prove a point. Just maybe Koeitje will have his chance to shine tonight versus the likes of Bybben and cookye? I for one will be looking out for him!
The other player to watch tonight from Quarantine, is in my opinion the highly under-rated zappis, is a hard hitter and so deadly when on fire, so will be interesting to see if he can match up to the likes of bybben and cookye and not to forget the sub’lime’ rocket surf’s that lime does, sometimes prove so effective with gunboats will be interesting to see how it works out for him with process especially.
Medic – Kritzonite Demoman – fuo Soldiers – lime and lemon Scouts – Koeitje and zappis
Join VanillaTV tonight at 21:15cet with your casters Byte & our trial caster WARHURYEAH, directing the camera will be our semi drunk Lithuanian Warden. Join the fun @ #vanillatv @ quakenet.
Byte — It’s been a mixed bag of results for pokemons, putting up a decent fight versus Crack Clan losing 6-2 and 4-2, gullywash was a tight affair until the bolts came off for pokemans. No one can deny that the new injection of Gubbins as demo, Coinz moving to scout & Darn in, has improved pokemons chances in premiership. A great result versus BFF stealing 3 points, showing what they are capable of.
With PyroGen calling it quits, unfortunately that meant pokemons lost their valid 6 points and are stuck with only 3, one would be asking too much of all of the players in pokemons to steal 6 points off epsilon e-sports but can they steal a map off them is the more interesting challenge. I hope Gubbins can show his fellow englishman numlocked how to play demoman. To do this the german duo stefan & bash will have their duty to do by shutting down gubbins to allow numlocked that free space he craves when going aggressive.
As for Epsilon e-sports, nothing to add but – “2strong”
VanillaTV will be casting this game tonight, we did have an article ready for Team Doctrinal versus BFF however Team doctrinal wildcarded it at the last minute unfortunately so we will be covering the other premiership game on, with your casters Pledge & Skully and the hard working Animal on directing duties. Join us at 21:15cet for the fun filled action.
