Who would of thought that at the very beginning of this idea to bring another Nations Cup to ET would be such a big success and showing that we still have that activity to pull something like that and on what scale!
When i first started off with random one day cups over weekends it felt like that was the thing this game definitely needed and we have seen a lot of players making their come backs to enjoy yet again some quality games with their mates on the battlefields, but that was simply not enough and i wanted something more, something greater and i thought to myself, why not give NC a try and see how it would end up.
As crazy as the idea sounded, i was very surprised by initial response from community and fast forward we are at the end of succesful run of tournament with a lot of exciting games behind us.
The grand finale of the Nations Cup took place yesterday between Netherlands and Finland where even the third time this tournament, Finland was unable to win against the Dutchies and we had in total 375 viewers spectating the game, which is definitely amazing number for ET at this time.
I believe that we can be happy with how this cup ran out and with the amount of games we were able to see, one of my favorites is definitely the finals of consolation brackets between Chile and United Kingdom where the South Americans came off on top, finishing in total on 9th place overall.
The final placement of all nations are:
5 - 6. France, Germany
7 - 8. Canada, Poland
10. United Kingdom
11. Czech Republic
13 -14. Portugal, Norway
15 - 16. Italy, Sweden
