Date June 25, 2017

etf2l-logo-banner_small

The last week of the group stage is upon us!

As the sun sets for last possible day to schedule an official in the fifth Highlander Nations Cup, BlackOut TV will be covering the thrilling clash between two teams with rosters filled with both skill and prestige. The two maps are koth_product_rc8 and cp_gullywash_final1, undoubtedly a varied and interesting matchup between the cold Nordic country Finland Finland, and its bicycle-loving adversary Netherlands Netherlands.

Join the casting duo consisting of Baba Carlos, also known as Spain CeeJaey and Netherlands HiipFire with Dutch broadcaster genius, Netherlands Wiethoofd on BlackOut TV at 21:00 CEST!

Finland Finland is managed by streamer and Tomislav monster Finland Qnai. The one team of all Highlander Nation Cup contenders with the most overall practice is undeniably Finland Finland. Having played over five weeks in the ongoing UGC Season 22 adds up to quite a big amount of minutes together in the same mumble channel. Despite this, many consider this edition of the Finnish roster to not live up to its players generall quality, for example losing out to Norway Norway on cp_steel. If Finland Finland wants to surpass Netherlands Netherlands and subsequently advance to the playoffs, Finland roban, Finland Qnai and Finland Scyper will have to step it up with better coordination.

The expected roster of Finland Finland is:

Scout: Finland Bloodis
Soldier: Finland miknando
Pyro: Finland Jaakarhu
Demoman: Finland Scyper
Heavy: Finland Qnai
Engineer: Finland Metso
Medic: Finland roban
Sniper: Finland Burn
Spy: Finland dissy

Netherlands Netherlands is led by notorious Premiership Spy Netherlands Nightmare. Over the course of the group stage in the Highlander Nations Cup, the country made up of coffee shops has managed to top Group Four. So far,Netherlands Netherlands is undefeated, having disposed of both Norway Norway and Croatia Croatia in two swift 6-0’s. The red, white and blue combination has grown into a quite a formidable team throughout the season. However, if they would secure themselves a playoffs spot tonight, key players such as Netherlands NightmareNetherlands Jelly and Netherlands Forty-Two will have to pave the way.

The expected roster of Netherlands Netherlands is:

Scout: Netherlands JENNYDEATH
Soldier: Netherlands Forty-Two
Pyro: Netherlands Skyro
Demoman: Netherlands Cnoz
Heavy: European Rainee
Engineer: Netherlands SandBurn
Medic: Netherlands TimTum
Sniper: Netherlands Jelly
Spy: Netherlands Nightmare

ETF2L S27 Premiership Week 3: Arctic Foxes vs Lowpander

Date June 11, 2017

Season27Banner

Written by UnitedKingdom bobmus

We’ve got fox on panda action tonight on TFTV!

European Arctic Foxes bounced back from their week 1 spanking by UnitedKingdom Se7en with a convincing roll of unexpected last week. Similarly, after throwing away their first 6 points of the season in a tantrum over server hosting, European Lowpander came back to surprise everyone with a victory over Sweden ANTIC, prompting them to undergo an early roster shuffle.

With the loss of ex-Se7en scout Finland Puoskari to the devious snake that is Finland amppis, European Arctic Foxes have had to change their line-up ahead of this week’s match, picking up England Thaigrr in return from Sweden ANTIC. Meanwhile, European Lowpander‘s own ex-BazookaSports scout Wales Funs looked on the top of his game last week, and at the time of writing still hasn’t quit to join another team.

Have the new-look European Arctic Foxes still got claws? Or will they fall victim to the surprisingly sharp bite of European Lowpander? Find out on Sunday night here on TFTV!

Scotland zeFrosty and UnitedKingdom ever_x will be casting, with production value added by England gemm.
