S27 LBSF: Arctic Foxes vs LEGO

Date July 19, 2017

Season27Banner

Two of the most experience-filled rosters in prem lock horns in this do-or-die match. We’ve never seen these two in a best of three before (thanks to Denmark LEGO‘s hiatus last season) but expect fireworks from both teams nontheless. LEGO have proven they’re capable of picking up from where they left off by taking a map from Se7en in their first round game, and will look to surpass their rivals who finished a mere two points ahead of them in the regular season. European Arctic Foxes will be hungry for the chance to make it two grand finals out of two, and will be out for blood, but don’t write off the possibility that small plastic men will triumph over one of nature’s most deadly predators.

S27 UBF: Se7en vs Lowpander

Date July 16, 2017

Season27Banner

The opening games of the playoffs of this season of ETF2L have given us two teams to go head-to-head for an immediate place in the Grand Final. The first is UnitedKingdom Se7en, the powerhouse of EU with a season win-streak of 6, stretching all the way back to 2015. With UnitedKingdom kaidus reintroduced to the roster, they’ve looked pretty much unassailable all season save for a one-map upset at the hands of Unexpected, who aren’t in these playoffs. The challenger is European Lowpander, a team who improved on last season’s placing to reach the top 4 thanks to the introduction of Wales Funs and Ireland Crayon to a roster filled with very experienced talent, most notably the monster pocket Latvia uubers, who drops above 10k dpm most maps. This could be as tight a test as Se7en get this season, so be sure not to miss it on tonight’s stream.

A new approach to scheduling

Date July 13, 2017

Previously we only announced dates for seasons when the announcement post was made. From this post on we are planning on having quarterly news posts stating the provisional schedule with the dates for the upcoming seasons over the next 6 months these posts will be posted around the first of January, April, July and October. There is also a google calendar with all this information that can be viewed here, or under the league tab.

These posts will only contain provisional dates for 6v6 and HL seasons and will not include most cups as these are usually not planned far ahead and are subject to significant schedule changes far closer to the announcement. As these dates will be provisional they are not final and while they are not expected to change significantly more concrete dates will be published in a seasons announcement post or home page.

For the period approximately 1 July 2017 – 31 December 2017:

Season 27

21 May – 7 July Regular Season
9 July – 26 July Postseason Playoffs

Highlander Season 13

26 June – 14 July Signups
8 July – 15 July Preseason Playoffs
16 July – 20 August Regular Season
27 August – 10 September Postseason Playoffs

Season 28

3 September – 16 September Signups
10 September – 16 September Preseason Playoffs
17 September – 5 November Regular Season

Highlander Season 14

29 October – 11 November Signups
