    Oh! even luckier! lol, 1% hive lol. Serious gameplay right there!

    shrug--at that point the game was pretty much over regardless of wether we lost Sewer or not smile-fix.gif

    Yeah, you guys wouldn't have been in deep deep trouble, but it would have put terror a good deal back in that game. If they had gotten the hive they could have gone back to kill the chambers there. Then launch a good recap and offensive, who knows.

    Realistically, i guess exi would have kept the nodes down and cleared sewer and it still would have been GG, but for a minute there was a big spark of hope for terror.

    Excellant job btw Nada. You impressed the hell out of me.

    I never expected there to be that many HLTV spectators. I aniticipated around 250 because it was going to be huge, but 330 near the start was amazing. That just blew my mind. Even at the end of the match which was after 12am est the number of viewers was still above the previously held record for an NS match.

    CAL-Finals are this weekend.  If you really love ns, you should tune in on HLTV to watch them.  This will be an amazing show, and it will feature the absolute best ns players playing their hardest.

    I just love how some U.S. players assume either;

    1. EU players don't exist

    or

    2. EU players can't compete with US players.

    I seem to remember EU beating NA 3-1 a couple of months ago!

    I'm not going to tell you that Europeans are better players than NA players, becuase I haven't seen any NA matches. I'm assuming that you don't watch EU matches, so please, don't assume that your fellow countrymen are better than ours.

    -sherpa.cfg, an Englishman, and proud of it (except for our beef and internet connections).

    Lol, I love the constant influx of euro naysayers in these types of threads... every time. I could easily comment on NA vs EU but I don't feel like starting something in this friendly thread.

    It was around about 250-270. Craziness I say. Its like those CS CPL matches except 2500 people weren't watching. But still anything over 50 people viewing a match for NS is amazing.

    More on-topic: GJ exi, although you had some amazing luck with Annihilator lagging out as Fade on your first veil marine round.

    Uh... he lagged out? Are you sure? I don't recall him disconnecting. asrifle.giffade.gif

    You can't tell the difference with Annis fading. Seriously why him in the CAL finals lineup?

    Not if we get a real lineup going and some actual scrimming this time... :o

    How about exi vs eu.

    Would be easier than NA vs eu. :/

    Oh and grats to all players, gg exi and terror, gg console (ironic that the name of the clan caused the death of `god as fade) and loc (it's nsarmslab B<)

    But James, USA is 2-0 so far and we never scrimmed once yet. Surely we are good enough for this 'real' roster sad-fix.gif

    I'm referring to the Team NA roster, which was substantially different than Team USA.

    UK servers * < 80
    US east coast 90-150 depending on the server and player.

    We've pretty much had it with the shittyness of Euro leagues -- although we will
    continue to hope, pray, and compete in them -- and will be playing in CAL Season 6
    Delta. So there will be much Euro loving for you right there, although I would be
    very surprised to see any of the US teams give up their ping advantage for one
    round on a Euro server (it would be nice, but we're not stupid, and we're going into
    this fully expecting to have to play with twice the ping of most of our opponents).

    OMG knife in CAL? Awesome man, I can't wait to play you guys tounge.gif I just wish ReD would come back. I think that anyone with half a brain would be stupid to not play on an east coast server... Now where's baconmen when you need 'em, I think I heard one of their guys saying they'd be in CAL... :o
