TMVG (finnish team won them 2-1 in maps at qualification) but curse was using name curse(remix) because of different lineup

TMVG:jOELZ, shaker, dRiim, allu, ScurK, suNny, Wazakhaq

curse(remix):(natu, reflex, naSu, aslak, CISU)

and tmvg was dropped out because of lose to: BX3 (tacky, rod, m1kkis, phnien, moen) // 2-0 in maps.

last spot for the tournament is going to be between BX3 (tacky, rod, m1kkis, phnien, moen) and: partyastronauts (Cy, firesenz, rain, vENdetta, nov). both teams are from norway.

in Finnish.

Reason for Curse not attending?
2013-02-07 15:52:26
it always makes me laugh when i watch skijumping @ tv, and the commentator is introducing players from finland, like hari peka nikola or some other hilarious names :)
2013-02-07 15:59:02
'hari peka nikola' sounds Japanese to me.
2013-02-07 16:02:27
the top 3 will be: (not in order)
HyperX FR34KSHOW
Team Mistral
Eternity Gaming

Pure guessing :)
2013-02-07 16:31:10
