Grand Final 21 CET: Strong Opinions vs Tourettes Chessclub – Highlander Season 9 powered by marketplace.tf
January 23, 2016
It’s that time again, ladies and gentlemen. After an epic season of 9v9 shenanigans, it all comes down to this: CeeJaey and Scissors tussling head to head in a no holds barred cage match to the death. Tourettes Chessclub have been waiting patiently in the wings throughout the playoffs, sipping from the glorious cup of the #1 seed and watching the lesser mortals scrap among themselves for the right to challenge for the title, while Strong Opinions proved themselves the masters of payload by breezing through their semi-final match with Highpander© way back at the start of January.
Both sides are capable of taking the title tonight, despite the public’s view on the saloon.tf standings. Tourettes Chessclub have their public appearances to back up their claim to the title, double-time victors of Highlander Seasons gone by (7 & 8) defeating former opponents Gravelpit Graveyard and Highpander© respectively. On the other hand, Strong Opinions have some of their own off screen stunts with Scissors‘s team failing to match up to them during practice matches away from the weekly games. However when it came down to the official in Week 4, Tourettes Chessclub sat back and plucked 6 points from CeeJaey‘s hands on cp_steel, the first map picked for tonight’s game. (I’ll let you decide who chose that one)
So with literally everything to play for; Tourettes Chessclub wanting the chance to become three time champions of European Highlander, matching SNSD‘s record across Seasons 1, 2 & 3 while Strong Opinions are looking to end that title for them and install themselves as victors despite this being their first Premiership season, demonstrating their skill and determination for all to see. Who win win a tidy €500 and who will walk away with the €350 and egg on their vest? Tune in at 21:00 CET / 3:00PM US East / 7:00AM AEDT on BlackOut TV with Bulow & sigafoo on the mics and Jon on the camera!
