ETF2L 6v6 Nations Cup: And the winner is…
After weeks of fighting, England has been crowned the victors of the 3rd ETF2L Nations Cup! Congratulation to team captain numlocked and his team!
The final match against Sweden was tense, with a 4-3 golden cap going to Sweden on Badlands, and another 1-round difference win for England on Snakewater, with England finally taking the win on Gullywash 4-2. They now do not only win the bragging rights for another year but also the $1234 cash prize that was promised by Angel.
It has been a long road to victory, but the English have proved themselves well against the other nations, only dropping 2 rounds total in the group stage (one against Hungary and one against Spain). Norway had to forfeit their match, Germany proved to be a tough opponent (many viewers even said it should have been the real final) and the semi-final match against Denmark even went to a third map.
The consolation final has been cancelled because the team from the USA has been disqualified from the tournament after they used an unlisted ringer in the semi-final against Sweden. The third place hereby goes to Denmark.
Overall, this Nations Cup has been a huge success, with the amazing VanillaTV coverage watched by thousands of TF2 fans, and the terrific gameplay of the players. At this point we would also like to dedicate a shoutout to John from TwitchTV who is a huge TF2 fan and helps the scene to reach a wider audience!
