The time has come again.
“What time?“, some may ask – confused, disoriented, scared. These emotions are more than justified. It’s that time again that makes cameramen sweat, by having to multitask more than the unfortunate maincaller of the gamemode in question.
The 14th Season of Highlander is about to start tonight as two seasoned teams clash in a frenzy of teamwork and gimmicks.
Gracefully covered in Dutch chocolate sweetware we have the consecutive two-time champions Super Dickmann's KANNONEN! re-emerging in the hopes of adding to their already mighty collection of accolades and all important TF2 esport prize money. With having kept most of their roster the same as the award winning and well oiled destruction machine from the last seasons, SDCK have however added much lauded and loaded former soldier Just1s to their roster. The Lithuanian will be picking up the heavy minigun for SDCK with SandBurn switching to demoman; due to the unfortunate departure of former main Spelly.
The second newcomer to the delicate, (not so) Dutch delegation of Dickmann’s will be long time spy main and former revolver enthusiast Grenja to take the spot of the -102 machine Ze Man.
On the other side, as one of the most potential competitors for the podium this season, we have the ever so mighty, yet slightly less roster-consistent Feila eSports finanzieren durch DROPS coming in as the underdog for tonight.
With keeping more than fifty-percent of their roster from the previous season and having a daunting 10-0 victory streak in the current UGC EU Platinum season going for them, the squad of JoeN and Leila is looking quite strong going into our first match of the season tonight. Replacing the German spy main and much lauded asset mezzo today will be the long-standing premiership spy, miknando. The fact that Feila eSports has rebuild a stronger roster is, however, skewed by the powerhouse that is SDCK who since scrimming have retained their former strength.
Conversely, the start of the season is often likely to cause new upsets which could or could not be initiated by the newcomers on Feila’s roster.
Will Feila’s latest addition Crayon up his teams potential to new heights?
Will Poker be the ‘all-in’ that strengthens the hand of Feila?
Will cloudy lift his team up to the heavens or will SDCK rain on his parade?
All of these factors will decide the fate of tonight and might end up influencing the rest of the season greatly as both teams will show who’s synergy has skyrocketed upward in the off-season.
Your casters for this first Highlander Prem game of Season 14 will be Domaytoe & Buck824 on the microphones with Wiethoofd manning the camera. Tune in to KritzKast at 21:00 CET (3PM EST) tonight to kick off this ETF2L season on Upward.
