The time has come to close this Nations Cup with the Grand Final war between The Netherlands and Germany.
This Nations Cup grand final will kick off on The Hunt. This is probably the map that most of the players love to play. With some rushing and back defense u can make hunt allies a hell for your opponent. The Netherlands did well on this map during their previous wars. They won all their wars on this map. Germany played this map against Estonia and "only"won 8-6 here. Our prediction here: 8-6 to The Netherlands.
The second map tonight will be The v2 rocke tfacility. The shotgun will probably be a deciding factor on both sides. If a nation manages to get some early frags they can probably decide some rounds in their favour. The Netherlands struggled a bit on this map during the groupstage while Germany won 8-6 here against Belgium. Our prediction for v2 is 7-7
This final will probably be decided on The Bridge. This map can really be a key factor in the result of the war. The German players are experienced on this map while The Dutchies mostly avoid this map in clan wars. If Germany got their teamwork up and running they can give The Netherlands a very hard time. We think Germany will have the upper hand on this map: 8-6 Gemany.
Conclusion: This war can go either way. The nation with the teamwork and some luck will probably claim the gold this season. Can Germany defend their title or will The Netherland claim the gold once again....

Today is the day Finland and Estonia fight each other in this seasons Nations Cup Bronze Final. Both teams lost their semi final war and now have to fight for the bronze.
The 2 finals in this cup will be played on all 3 maps. First up will be the Hunt which can cause a nice and close fight between both nations. Estonia only lost 6-8 on this map against Germany so this means they some teamwork here. The Hunt isn't Finland strongest map. Most of the times they lost it in the wars they played. We predict 7-7.
The next map will be the v2 rocket facility. This is normally Finland strongest map and they managed to defeat some clans on it. For example against UK they won 10-4 on this map. The results from Estonia on this map aren't really good. Against Sweden they lost 5-9 here. We predict that Finland will have the upper hand here. With a shotgunner on front they will win this map 9-5.
The battle for bronze will be decided on The Bridge. Both nations hardly played this map this season so it's hard to make an expectation about what will happen. TzT and Thor are Estonia's most experienced players on this map. If Estonia camp like hell they might have a chance to get a good result here. We think this map will end in 8-6 for Finland.
Finland is normally the favorite to win the Bronze. Estonia's place in this bronze final is a surprise....can they surprise one more time...we will know tonight!!
|Golden Final||The Netherlands||vs||Team Germany||50% - 50%|
|Bronze Final||Team Estonia||vs||Team Finland||40% - 60%|
These finals have to be played before Sunday 12 April 23:59. You have till this Friday to arrange your wars otherwise we will have to force them.

Tonight Germany and Estonia will fight for a spot in the big final of this Nations Cup.
First up will probably be The Hunt. Estonia managed to get a draw on this map against Sweden. We believe that this will be 1 of the better maps from Estonia so they might have a chance to get some rounds here. Germany also likes this map and they play it often with their clans in the ladders. If things go like normal we predict a 10-4 to Germany.
A map that might be picked tonight will be v2. This map with close combat fighting might be close as well. If Estonia nade a bit around truck then they will be able to get some early frags. Germany played very strong on this map against Belgium though. We think Germany will have the better team and tactics here 10-4 Germany.
Last but not least is The Bridge. The Bridge is a map that Germany will probably prefer to play. The german clans on Clanbase pick this map from time to time and most of the time they manage to win it. Some of the Estonian players are experienced on this map as well. We think Germany will have the upperhand here with 11-3.
This will probably be a one sided war. Germany can try to defend their title if they manage to beat Estonia. We think this will end in 21-7 or soomething.

Tonight Finland and The Netherlands face each other in the semi final of this Nations cup. The nation that wins this war can prepare theirself for the golden final.
The Hunt is probably the favorite map from The Netherlands. In their groupwars they allways showed some strong teamplay and dedication to win on this map. Finland has had mixed results on this map. In the groupstage The Netherlands rushed over Finland on the Hunt. We predict 9-5 to The Netherlands here.
The v2 rocket facility is a map were Finland feels at home. With a shotgunner up front they managed to surprise The Netherlands and The United Kingdom on this map. This surely will be a close match again on this map. We think NL will take their revenge with 8-6 tonight.
It's not sure if The Bridge will be played tonight. The Netherlands got some players who prefer this map over The Hunt or v2. It are mainly the players from db clan who play this map once in a while. The Finnish players will probably like to avoid this map tonight. If this map gets played we think that it will end in 10-4 to NL.
The Netherlands is the big favorite to win this war tonight. In the groupstage NL won against Finland with 19-9. Will this happen again or will Finland surprise NL and take the spot in the final? Time will tell...
|#3||The Netherlands||vs||Team Finland||60% - 40%|
|#4||Team Estonia||vs||Team Germany||40% - 60%|

For the first time ever Estonia reached the Semi Final of a Spearhead Nations Cup. If they want to reach the semi final they need to defeat Hungary.
Estonia will probably like to play The Hunt tonight. This is a map that the Estonian players like and got some good experience on. Estonia managed to get a draw on this map against Sweden which is a nice result. Hungary played the Hunt a few times and had some good and bad results on this map. We think this map will be close: 8-6 to Hungary.
V2 could be the map that Hungary wants to play on tonight. Against UK and Poland they managed to get some nice results here. (9-5 against UK and Poland). Estonia played this map 1 time and lost it. So if Hungary can keep up their teamwork on this map we believe that they will win 10-4 here.
The Bridge can be a surprising map for both nations. Estonia didnt play this map yet this season so this can be a big disadvantage for them. They do have some players who got experience on this map so they wont get owned easily here. Normally Hungary got a stronger team here as well. 9-5 to Hungary
Conclusion: Hungary who is more active and got some good teamplay are surely the favorite tonight.

Tonight we see Finland and Sweden battling each other in the quarter final of this Nations Cup season.
The Hunt will be an interesting map to see this nations play against each other. Finland didn't do very good so far on this map during the cup. Against NL, UK and Poland they lost on this map. Sweden played this map 1 time so far. It became 7-7 against Estonia. We predict 8-6 to Sweden.
The V2 rocket facility is a well known map for both nations. Sweden played this map 1 time and won. Finland had some good results on v2 against UK and NL. We predict that this map will go to Finland with 8-6.
If the Bridge will be picked then we can expect anything tonight. Both nations didnt play this map alot so this map can go either way. Based on the good results of Sweden on this map in the past we believe that they will have the upper hand here. 8-6 to Sweden.
This quarter final NC-war can go either way. We expect a very tight battle for a spot in the semi finals. Our prediction 14-14.
|#1||Sweden||vs||Team Finland||50% - 50%|
|#2||Estonia||vs||Team Hungary||40% - 60%|
