OWL7 Division 1 Top 4 Decider TONIGHT!
Beta vs Spadebox LIVE at 11:00pm NZ
Thats right tonight is the decider for the OWL7 Finals Top 4, syf still have a chance to make it into the top four but it will require Spadebox to lose tonight followed by a win against Beta next week, those are still good odds but the more likely candidates at this stage are Beta and Spadebox who will be going head to head tonight on Gullywash and Badlands in an epic match up.
Beta has performed extremely well this season with some impressive games even though they have faced super sluts on multiple occasions while Spadebox started off slightly below expectations, but that got thrown out the window completely with an amazing game against BOB in Round 3 and as you can see they are now going head to head to try and secure a spot in the finals.
GreaverTV will be covering the match tonight in glorius 4mb/s 720p so if a live stream is your thing you can find deets below, but if you prefer to watch in STV and listen to the cast sync'd in mumble you can do that as well because those deets are below too.
This game has a lot riding on it so I grabbed Spitty and Realmy from Beta and the one and only Puddy from Spadebox for an interview to find out how each team is feeling going into this match.

Welcome to Greaver vs The News for this week. I was holding out to do a decent write up of ESEA Invite LAN with enough VODs to choke a small animal but unfortunately there was a LOT of VODs to upload so here I am a week later. Anyway there has been plenty of action this week so I'll get into it.
I recently came across a couple of lovely ladies from South Africa on my internet travels and soon got to talking. Turns out Lola and Lolita run 16bit.co.za - a TF2 community site dedicated to running fun TF2 competitions in South Africa and they are running their very own Kritzkast Lo-Fi Offclass Cup very shortly. GreaverTV will be providing coverage of the event and they already have a bunch of teams signed up and if I might say so they have an extremely interesting map pool so I look forward to seeing their take on KLOC.
Asia Fortress has the Merc Cup on this month and next, registrations just closed and the tournament is kicking off now with casting coverage of the top games by GreaverTV - if you want to check it out head on over to Asiafortress and check it out
OWL7 has been cranking along with tight games in all 6 divisions producing exciting games - I am not even going to try and cover everything here but below you will find my match of the week and links to the current point tables.

For the last couple of months NZFortress has been busy with the Fresh Meat League which was a competition designed to take players from the pubs that had never played competitively, give them a mentor, then the mentors would battle them like Pokemon to find the best noob team and finally the best mentor in NZ.
We just had the 3rd and 4th place finals along with the Grand final and you can find the awesome VODs below.
Look out for a thread dedicated to the ESEA LAN VODs tomorrow
