This was a truly success season, in a timespan of 3 months 431 Games
was played (including playoffs), quite an astonishing nr. One reason
for the high nr of games beeing played was because of the system's
design so to speak, you could never loose points only win points.
This encouraged many clans to play like never before.
The league was running the 10 % ladder based system, which had both
its charm and flaws, more flaws though. But clans really enjoyed
the the league and there was always a NQR game beeing played everyday,
3-4 games was played each day. We could never imagine
this scenario due to our previous season which got totally idle
due to various reasons (new server, server malfunction etc). But
it sure was a nice suprise to see NQR2 beeing such a success.
In Nations Quake Rank Season 2 theese 16 clans made it to the playoffs:
The AxeMen (.NO)
Hard Guns Crew (.PL)
Clan C6 (.SE)
Clan MalFunction (.FI)
4 Kings (.UK)
HellFire Clan (.SE)
America Must Die (.RU)
Idle hit us all at the playoffs stage, and it took quite a long
time to get the playoffs done (as usal). But however we got it underway
and clans started to play their games.
This was the results from Round 1.
HEAD vs GB = 2-0
4K vs JAMS = 2-1
CMF vs KOFF = 2-1
ZR vs AXE = 2-0 (WO)
HF vs C6 = 2-0
HGC vs D = 2-0
FS vs AMD = 2-0
K vs TRASH = 2-0
Results from Round 2.
ZR vs 4K = 2-0
HF vs FS = 2-0
CMF vs HEAD = 2-0
HGC vs K = 2-1
Results from Round 3.
HF vs CMF = 2-1
ZR vs HGC = 2-0
Result from Bronze game.
CMF vs HGC = 2-1
Result from Final Game.
ZR vs HF = 2-0
ZR played really well in this final game vs HF and deserved to
win Nations Quake Rank season 2. HF had been doing some impressing
advancements in the playoffs and during regular season, so many
spectators put their money on HellFire to win this final. How wrong
they were, because the finnish lions surly was awake..and ready
for a bloody fight and eventhough HF fought brave to try and gain
command of the match they were constantly denied by the overpowered
ZR players, ZR showed some really impressing teamplay
throughout the whole game. Due to the game beeing played on one
of Edome's servers we were sadly not able to get any mvd demos from
the final, players were encouraged to record demos but failed to
do so. Only one demo is avaiable, from Hib's POV on Dm3.
The NQR Crew would like to congratulate the finnish guys in Clan
Zetor who faught hard for this victory!
Finally, the NQR Crew would like to thank ALL the clans and players
that participated in Nations Quake Rank 2, you made this into a
kick-ass season! Hope to see you next season.
