- Hehe, The underdog wins again!! I am certain many people favoured SWE to take the third place and thought that NED had a 30% chance of winning. NED has shown them they know nothing about statistics hehe. We had some trouble getting the show on the road, with Falcon not being able to connect (something about invalid password). NED quickly changed Falcon with =[LKFF]=Mallory right before the game started. You’d think NED would be in the disadvantaged position, having to make this last minute change, which might interrupt with their tactics. Guess again…
This promised to be an interesting map, with some players from SWE
having a bad history here. First round NED
showed them how they were going to play the game. NED
retreated behind the catapult!! They took positions and waited. People exchanged fire and the situation became 3 NED
vs 2 SWE
. 1 death on each side made it 2 NED
(talk about irony). He gave away the round with a lemming of the roof.
The following rounds NED
played very diffensivly. They were not doing a good job at it and lost 5 rounds in a row. Then a few lucky spawns in a row (second floor spawn, SWE
spawning second floor and not rushing out…) They came back to 4-5. Then SWE
got back in the game and made it 4-7. We witnessed one funny situation, where poelier
runs right by a SWE
player positioned in a window on the second floor. poelier
positions himself on the other window, not knowing that his opponent just 2 feet away…
Turning point in the game, NED
gets a flawless round, unleashing round after round of death and murder upon SWE
. They came from 4-7 to 9-7, very impressive in the last minutes of the map.

NED win by 9 to 7Second level: Turnpike (126.96.36.199:27960 )NED
started this map positional (I didn’t know this was possible hehe). The game was very balanced on this map. It seemed that who ever could take the central area early on in the round, could go on and win the round. (A few exceptions here and there) The map was mostly played with grenades and LR, backed up with a sniper. This combination worked well for both sides, keeping the scores close together.
The last round it was BlaZe
versus 3 SWE
members. Over a minute left in the game, the score was 7-7, SWE
was 2 round behind, they could still pull of a draw and force NED
in overtime. They clearly forgot about BlaZe
. Cornered by two SWE
players, he gets 2 heads in a row. BlaZe
hides himself at the stairs, waiting for KungCarl
to come and waiting for the time to pass. He succeeds in his plan and even kills KungCarl
, winning them the map 8-7.

NED win by 8 to 7
GG from both sides, they showed us why they got this far. The game wasn’t as fast as some other games, but it was more tactical. GG to everyone and see you next nations cup!!
