As we're heading off to the finals after an evening of many great battles and a struggle for survival of the fittest. Only 2 teams came out alive! Bad Desicions 1 and Nerv. They will be battling for the first place ASWELL as Bad Decisions 2 and Consequences who will be competing for 3rd place. These events will take place on this sunday 15/09 at 19:00, so make sure to check out the battle of the titans this weekend!


In the spotlight:

In terms of a recap we would like to put some of the lesser-known teams into the spotlight of wich we think they did a good/suprising job in our first ESL Forge Test-Cup. By this means we’d like to congratulate the 2 teams named “The Dwarves” and “Rapid Rabid Rabbit”, as they were the highest ranked Free Agents Teams in this cup. Both stood up against some very good teams/comps and surprisingly, both came out very good aswell! So by this we would like to wish the best to the both of you, train hard, work on your strategies and we believe you will have a bright future ahead of you! WE definitely would like to see/hear more from the both of you in the future!


Also, we'd like to say a thank you to all of our participants, the cup wouldn't have been the same without all of you guys. Together we made this possible. We hope you had a great time, alot of fun competing against eachother and hope to see you soon!


Last but not least we'd like to thank the people from DVG for making this great game what it is today and for putting their shoulders under the whole project too. This whole experience wouldn't be possible without you guys.

It was a fun tournament, I'm sad to have been knocked out early. One tip for the next though, balance the brackets a bit more.
The upper bracket (as in, the one at the top) was filled with well-known players, while the bottom bracket only had one or two 'veteran' teams.

Nice job on the tourney overall, and I am interested to see who will win.

We hope the name 'Rapid Rabid Rabbit' can become well known just so people can say the team name on the stream instead of something like 'Catweasel's team'.

Enjoyed playing in the recent tournament as well, looking forward to participating in more!
