Week two of Blackout was some what disappointing with four games being decided for forfeiture, however, four teams managed to schedule two games, so not everything was lost. Unfortunately, due to the hacking judgement against 34_, his clan Promode.RU have decided to withdraw from the tournament in protest. Additionally, opk have also expressed to withdraw from the tournament due to the forfeit decision against them. As a result there are now twelve teams in the tournament.
That is the bad news, however, the good news is that week three will be the BIGGEST week of Blackout, without the top two teams of each continent facing each other, as The Russian Eights square off against Dumbledore's Army and Heffalumps try to take down red.
As explained above, two teams have withdrawn from the tournament and as such there may changes to the format of the tournament. We may shorten the regular season to five weeks, if teams express an interest.
I understand this is late will be willing to accommodate both teams, but as Promode.RU and opk have withdrawn from the tournament, Tiffany Aching is to play KOOLNASTY for their week three match.
Week Two Results
Map one: 246-84 The Russian Eights
Map two: 259-50 The Russian Eights
Map three: 231-50 The Russian Eights
Game Pack and map results to follow shortly;
Dead-Serious Cows > SuperSonic Sexmachines 9-3
Promode.RU FF. 9-0 Team ZEN; Promode.RU withdraw from tournament.
opk FF. 9-0 red; opk withdraw from the tournament.
Control Denied FF. 9-0 Heffalumps.
KOOLNASTY FF. 9-0 Dumbledore's Army.
Week three has arrived, and we are now at the halfway point, this will be the biggest week of Blackout as the two seeded teams from each continent (The Russian Eights vs. Dumbledore's Army in Europe, and Heffalumps and red in North America) face each other in contests that will have a large effect on the overall rankings. All four teams come in without dropping any maps, however, Heffalumps have by unfortunate in dealing with difficult to contact opponents and have yet to actually play a game! All-in-all there should be some classic CPM TDM games this week(end)! Anyhow, here are my predictions;
Team ZEN > Teamless 7-5
SUN. FEB. 17, @12:00 P.M. EST / 6:00 P.M. CET
The Russian Eights > Dumbledore's Army 7-5
Dead-Serious Cows > Curious Apes 7-5
red > Heffalumps 9-3
Tiffany Aching > KOOLNASTY 7-5
Control Denied > Curious Apes 7-5
