Season 25 powered by Tt eSPORTS Premiership Grand Final: Crowns vs. Gender Confused

Date December 1, 2016

banner-s25-v2-Small

So. Here it is. The Grand Final few were expecting, but will nontheless be a competitive fixture which may well add a final sting in the tail of a very, er, tail stinging season. After a shocking two-map victory over LEGO (admittedly without star scout .sorex), Finland Thanks Nursey are looking to gain an even bigger scalp if they are to win one of the biggest upsets ever. However, more likely is that UnitedKingdom Crowns are to win yet another season, marking 4 seasons in a row (over a year) of straight prem victories. The roster has seen only one player remaining from that first win (in Netherlands kaptain), but it is nontheless an incredible achievement, probably the most dominant a team has been since the legendary Epsilon squad.

Finland amppis has been battling these various rosters for what seems like years now, and this would surely be the most unexpected season of all to beat them, but you can never discount Thanks Nursey/Sauna Slayers/Gender Confused as we learned in that lower-bracket upset only a few nights ago.

Will the Finns get an ego boost to go with any DreamHack successes, or will this be possibly the last hurrah for several legendary Crowns names? As always, there is only one place to catch all the action. Tune into TeamFortress.tv for your last taste of ETF2L action for the year.

Season 25 powered by Tt eSPORTS (open) Grand Final: L3RDZ vs belastend

Date November 26, 2016

banner-s25-v2-Small

The open playoffs this season have been a curiosity, with no real super-strong teams who have utterly dominated (and then immediately gained promotion to high the season after). This has left us with two teams, Switzerland Belastend and UnitedKingdom L3RDZ, both very international in nature. It’s worth pointing out that L3RDZ did get a 5-1 victory over their opponents, and haven’t lost a single series (they do have one 3-3 tie). But are they even favourites? Who knows? Who will win? Who will fold? It’s another unexpected season of open.
