Next week we start Team Cup Round 2 games. Before
the launch we have some days to check Round
Read expanded Round 2 Rules...
1st National Team
Cup Round 1 is over. Meet our winners (9 out of 28):
- USA WADBAG
- USA California Republic
- USA Texas and the South
- Western Canada
- UK 1
In Round 2 each team will meet the others 10
times (as in Round 1). In semifinals will see only 4 teams and
only 2 in final round.
1st Round details:
- USA WADBAG and USA California Republic from "USA and Aliens"
reached Round 2. USA West showed the worst result ending with
no points at all. Fierce fighting had broken off from the
very beginning of the Cup and immediately showed who the real
leaders were. But their rivals especially USA Team from Outer
Space, Catalonia and Belarus teams gave them no rest and literary
snatched the victory out of their jaws.
- USA Texas, the South and Western Canada from "North America"
reached Round 2 with the odds in their favour. Eastern Canada
and France team proved that dangerous is their middle name.
- UK1 and Germany from "Europe and Britain" reached Round
2 while UK4 hasn't even entered the game.
- In "Pacific and Mediterranean" group Australia and Spain
teams were fighting in the front line for some time but at
the last moment Russia team won 1 missing point from Asian
Region thus entering the front line with other leaders. As
all three teams have demonstrated good results will see them
in Round 2.
- A lot of games haven't been finished and unfortunately
for some reasons not all of the players managed to finish
Round 1 thus letting down their teams.
Have a look at the detailed result tables:
USA and Aliens |
Europe and Britain |
Pacific and Mediterranean
Please, check your results.
