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.
Greaver Decides: BOB vs Spadebox
This game was HUGE - easily the best game so far this season in division 1 from a spectators point of view with exciting action on both maps and a relatively tight score line to boot.

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
