After an exciting playoff bracket we’ve ended up with two teams clawing their way to a finalist position, SVIFT sponsored by STN.TF and Ascent.EU. SVIFT sponsored by STN.TF finished the regular season in a stable manner, only losing 3 maps and looking comfortable for the majority of it, but it took a turn for the worse in the first game of playoffs when alle left mid-match, to be replaced by none other than Se7en‘s kaidus. He has been mercing since, and SVIFT sponsored by STN.TF held out against both Ascent.EU and LEGO in the upper bracket where both games went to a third map. Ascent.EU on the other hand managed to get the 4th playoff spot in the regular season, and were the underdogs by the estimation of most. With Néo unavailable (as he is again tonight), Ascent.EU got knocked into the lower bracket after losing to SVIFT sponsored by STN.TF in the Upper Bracket Round 1, but they have not let their nerves get the better of them so far. They have had a solid lower bracket run while knocking out both Politically correct pander and LEGO, only needing 2 maps to do so to the former.
With a flashback on our hands, we can expect to see another closely fought series with a potential 4 maps being played. SVIFT sponsored by STN.TF have a map in hand, so they will only need to win two maps to be victorious, but if Ascent.EU were to complete their S28 underdog story, it would require them to take 3 maps of the series.
Are Ascent.EU up to the challenge? Shall SVIFT sponsored by STN.TF repeat history even while facing invite tf2 god ThalashEEE? Find out this Wednesday at 21:00 CET with Beater and alba on the mic, and ol’ reliable gemm on production at twitch.tv/teamfortresstv.
