Tonight @ 20:00h: RO 16! Meet Andre, iznobest & sunZor!

Tonight at 20:00h the first matches from the round of 16 will be broadcasted LIVE on Twitch.tv/NSSLeague – TUNE IN! And tell your friends! It will be much cooler than MLG anyway :).

At 20:00h sunZor vs. Thoms will go at it, and at 21:00h it’s iznobest vs. Andre! We’d like to tell you a bit more about these players, who have been rather anonimous during the tournament so far. And how better to do that than by letting the players tell you themselves? That’s why Draco has sent out interview questions over the past few days – click the button to read the players’ answers and find out more about who will be going head to head tonight for a place in the round of 8!

UPDATE: The matches have just been played! Lots of people tuned in, and if you missed it the VODs can be found on www.twitch.tv/nssleague. I’ll also upload the matches to Youtube later and put links to them on the results-page.

Looking back & looking ahead – new write-up!

Hello again all you wonderful, wonderful people, Draco’s back with another plate of letter-spagetti. This time we’ll be having a retrospect of group phase B of the NSSL. And what a phase it was. With a slacker-density considerably lower than in group phase A, and the overall level of the players having risen a league or two, things got a hell of a lot more exciting. With still some people managing to squash their way through their unfortunate opponents, other groups had tense climaxes, where the difference between being knocked out and going on was only 1 game, but more on that further down below.

Group phase B also got the NSSL-crew in better shape, with the casters getting in better shape and more experienced (for most of us, this was actually our first time casting) and the website it’s managing got more streamlined. All and all, it’s safe to say the finals are going to be nothing short of a total blast and every single one of us is definitely looking forward to it. After all, what’s not to like about getting together, playing and watching an amazing game, having drinks, talks, interviews, video’s and all that good stuff having been put together by people that put all that time and effort into it, all for the love of the game.

On Wednesday the brackets are drawn LIVE – I’ll announce the exact time as soon as possible. The 8 players that came in first in their group have earned the privilige of not having to play each other in the RO16, so during the draw they are randomly matched against the 8 players who came in second in their group.

The full schedule for the RO16 & RO8-matches will be published as soon as possible, we’ll try to cast all of them LIVE! In the meanwhile: stay tuned for webcasts from group stage B, we’re working on casting all of the matches.
