Cpm 2v2 NATIONSCUP Week 1+2! (28 comments)
Posted by blaze @ 10:24 CDT, 10 April 2009 - iMsg
So the first two weeks we'll see a lot of games! Each team will play 3 games during these two weeks. So it's time to start scheduling.
As usual tell me or ethad ASAP when you scheduled the game. It's close to impossible for us to run this event otherwise.

(Since every group has 5 teams one team has to sit out every round. That causes that some teams will just have to play 2 games these weeks)

Cpm 2v2 NATIONSCUP (48 comments)
Posted by blaze @ 10:04 CDT, 10 April 2009 - iMsg
Next monday (13/4) the 2v2 version of the Nationscup kicks in with 20 teams fighting for the pride left in CPM.
Since the teams only need 2 players to get a game going we thought we'd speed things up and make you play 3 games per 2 weeks.
First two weeks schedule can be found here!

I'd like to remind every team that to have at least one player in #cpm.nations to make the scheduling smooth. Before we start I'd like to hand out a round of applauses to the refs helping us with the event and the few admining here at ESR.

CPM TDM Nationscup Semi-finals! (88 comments)
Posted by blaze @ 07:43 CDT, 16 March 2009 - iMsg
We're finally getting down to serious business.

Sweden Sweden vs DenmarkIceland Icemark @ Thursday 21:00 CET
United Kingdom United Kingdom vs Poland Poland A @ Sunday 22:00 CET

I asked United States of America djWHEAT to shoutcast the semi-final games. The days he could do some shoutcasting is from Wednesday to Sunday, so that's the days you can pick to schedule the game. Since none of you settled for a date I don't think this should be a problem. As usual, tell me when you scheduled the game RIGHT AFTER YOU SCHEDULED IT!

The really strong team of Sweden will face off the joined nations Iceland and Denmark.
I think that Sweden will win this one in 2 straight maps, they played each other during the group stage and Sweden managed to win that one convincingly with 2:0 in maps. Although I doubt that Icemark will let the win go easily, they've got some high skilled and really good aim at their team and will use that to counter the Swedes.

United Kingdom and Poland A will face off in the other semi-final. I think this game will be really interesting and the predictions pretty hard. Poland A consists of some of the old schoolers of Poland with the addition of the vq3er v3rb. I'm expecting crazy aim and some nice team play from the Polish team.
The UK team has some wide spread skill and knowledge of the game, with the powerhouse ddk in the front.

I'd say this game goes 2:1 to Poland A, but depending on the lineup from UK that could as well turn to 2:1 in the favor to UK.

As always, you can find the updates first at the tourney site or at irc (#cpm.nations)

Update: Unfortunately djWHEAT couldn't make it for the Sweden vs Icemark game tonight, but he confirmed that he will be here at Sunday when United Kingdom and Poland A is playing!

CPM TDM Nationscup: Captains Interviewed (60 comments)
Posted by blaze @ 10:18 CST, 2 February 2009 - iMsg
Now that the CPM TDM Nationscup has finally started, I took some time to ask each captain their thoughts about the tournament and how they expect to perform. Here is a teaser with Sweden Daniel "voodoochopstiks" Platt, the Swedish captain:
Underdog of your team?
Probably me because I am not that good a coach and I don't have a very strong idea about what TDM is about. I couldn't name a player, we have a consistently strong squad to field I think, as long as everyone stays happy and in good spirits.
