So today the 2nd Tournament in the EuroPaint Cup Series took place and, similar to the first tournament this one lasted for about 5 1/2 hours. Again, we would like to thank OTB, MeMi and QeHs for the use of their servers throughout the tournament, without their support the tournament would simply not exist. We would also like to give our thanks to every player and team that took part in the 2nd tournament. It was a great 5 or so hours with lots of competitiveness, and even more fantastic sportsmanship, we really couldn't ask for anything more.
As with the previous tournament, there were quite a few surprises along the way. One of those being the progress of little-known Polish side 2B
lead by saq, we are looking forward to seeing them in the future EuroPaint tournaments! There was also a fantastic run put together by Swedish side Kdt
. Having been knocked into the lower bracket by German team OTB, they worked their way through the pack to eventually face [OTB] again in the lower bracket final, but this time took the map 13:12 to setup a final match with team Opi!. The final was an exciting affair, and with maps chosen including Warlock and icecap, their was sure to be some interesting action. Team Opi! managed to take both maps winning Warlock 50:30 and Icecap 29:24, with their greater experience in Paintball matchplay being one of the deciding factors in the match.
The final positions were as follows:
1: Opi! - PURE, Sprigger
2: Kdt^ - corny, wesslan
3: OTB - T3RR0R15T, Kongo, RowseR, Fuchs

So again, we would just like to thank everyone who helped and took part in EuroPaint #2. I'm sure you'll all agree that this was just as successful as the previous tournament if not more, and we are sure this Series of Cups will continue to get bigger and better!
