We’ve reached the halfway point of the season, and this week’s map is the one every Highlander player has a love/hate relationship with – of course, it’s cp_steel! All 6 Premiership teams are in action tonight, with key points available in the battle for playoffs…
Firstly, early league leaders Feila eSports finanzieren durch DROPS come up against kiti s bakenbardami looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season. Highlander’s resident power couple JoeN and Leila have finished runner’s up in the past 3 seasons, but look the early favourites having dropped only 1 point in the opening fixtures. They face a rejuvenated kiti who managed to take the full 6 points against former champions SDCK in Week 2. Will the legend of Russian superiority on Steel produce another upset here?
A battle closer to the bottom of the table sees TORPEDO up against Tourettes Chessclub. Both sides have struggled so far, just picking up a point each from the first two fixtures. The pre-season qualifiers saw the teams face each other in the Upper Bracket Final, with Steel being one of the maps played – and TORPEDO coming out as the victors. Recent roster changes have seen Demoman Yxxo leave TORPEDO, while former Pyro of the Season Synrise is switching from Pootis and returning to his roots. Will we see another 2-0 sweep for nubbi & his crew, or will these changes swing the odds?
Finally, we have our showpiece game – unbeaten inVision, who find themselves in 2nd place so far, come up against Super Dickmann's KANNONEN! Returning after a 2 season hiatus SDCK has seen mixed results so far, dropping points in double-koth week to kiti without winning a round. inVision managed to overcome their eastern European couterparts, and a victory in this match would get them with one foot in the playoffs. Will SDCK return to form, or can inVision signal a changing in the guard at the top of European Highlander?
inVision vs Super Dickmann's KANNONEN!
