ABOUT

Once more, we build a bridge across the Atlantic Ocean to allow North American and European teams to play each other. Europe's most dominant team, SNSD, will be making a return appearance to go against the newest super team out of America, Ginyu Force. Europe's finest squad will feature all of the usual suspects - TviQ on sniper, ALX on heavy, Kaidus on demoman. North America will roll out the infamous Huey Lewis on pyro, one of the best medics in the game in Overseer, and damage dealing machine Duwatna on demoman. It will start off with a little Payload action on everyone's favorite map, Badwater, before rolling into some five control point festivities on Gullywash, finally closing out with some infuriating king of the hill action on Lakeside. Making yet another trip to the camera will be huhy, with noted lovers & casting duo DJC & Admirable on the mic!

ETF2L has an American server, and I haven't read any insights about it on ETF2L, but I think it'll be like the other times where EU vs NA was played: one half of the match on an Euro server and the other on an NA server.

The maps were decided based on crossover between both leagues map-lists. Last time EU weren't really given any say in it but this time Hildreth made sure to pick maps both teams will have experience on.

Little comment on the cast (in hope casters/streamers actually read it here): it would be great if streamer followed what casters say, when they point at something specific.

It doesn't matter when casters are discussing strategies or uber pops, or just something that already happened, but when they say "let's look at how this soldier works the flanks, oh wow amazing airshot!" and at the same time on the stream we see spy sneaking somewhere on the flank (not denying sneaky spies are exciting view) -- it looks kinda awkward.
"What, where, airshot? Want to see!"

In my opinion, as soon as caster says "let's follow player X" -- streamer should instantly switch to player X until caster gets distracted by something else.

Other than that, amazing work! :D
