score coz ettv changed server 2 min before end :P?
sorry about that, I figured the delay would prevent it from happening

it's 2-0 for Iceland atm (Chile set 10:29 on radar, and Iceland beat it with 8:02)
1st map on EU server, 2nd on US? and what about decider?
Iceland is a very young girl to not play in U.S. server.
really gg Chile
would have been even if we had played the two maps in the United States or played one in Chile and one in Europe, 80 ping vs 300 is easy :). the good thing is that they will lose in the first round. gg for be afraid :)
Chile lo intentaron y esten orgullosos. Eso es lo que cuenta. Y a esas europeas que coman mierda. Haha.

CHILE 2 ICELAND 4

GOOD MATCH IN EUROCUP

IN THE RULES SHOULD LIKE TO PLAY WITH PING

"ICELAND: NO SERVER UK NO WIN"

UK SERVER= 2-0 GOLDRUSH FOR ICELAND
(CHILE 300 PING vs 80 PING ICELAND)

USA SERVER= 2-2 SUPPLY FOR CHILE
(CHILE 210 PING VS ICELAND 190 PING)

UK SERVER IN BREMEN (VOTE COINTOSS SERVER) =
4-2 ICELAND (CHILE 300 PING vs 80 PING ICELAND)

I'm not sure how that could happen, but the rules for server choice were clearly not respected...
http://clanbase.ggl.com/rules.php?lid=13009#chap_1679
section 10. Server decision

Too bad for Chile, they deserved fairer conditions for this match.
Right, I didn't remember that one. It's OK that this rule states that they should play 1 map on each server, however it still doesn't tell anything specific for the decider.
Since the case wasn't covered by the country-specific rules, why not fall back to the generic rules for the decider, instead of finding out this cointoss thing? Especially because there was a fair server according to the generic rules.

It reminds me of the fencing tie-breaker rules, where there's a cointoss to decide who will have the "priority" during the tie breaker (I also find that rule utterly unfair).
GoldoraK and I discussed it a few moments before the second map ended, and he agreed that a cointoss was the best choice.

Both teams also seemed fine with it at the time. It was only after the map was played that the losing team was a bit upset about it, which is to be expected of course. :)
Of course I don't argue that Chile lost because of the server choice, and that's not why I'm trying to understand / discussing / complaining (cross out the wrong ones ;-) ) about it. My only problem is that there actually was a server with fair pings (the US one), and another one with unfair pings was used instead.

Therefore I'd like to make a suggestion for updating the rules for future editions. What about adding, right below the part where you describe what servers should be used for each of the non-European countries, the following text: "In case of a decider, if one of the proposed servers has fair pings, it will be used, otherwise a cointoss will decide which server will be used". I think that this would only add quality to the conditions these matches should be played. If for any reason you find my suggestion irrelevant, no problem, just ignore it, but I wanted to add my 2 cents to this topic.
It's a good idea, and we will certainly consider it for the next NC season(s), so thank you for the suggestion. :)

The only concern that some may have is that while a US server does give ~200 ping to both teams, the CL players are far more comfortable with the higher ping than the IS players are (even though both teams have roughly the same ping) because they play like that most of the time.
I'm glad I could help.

I've heard that argument about Chile being used to high pings a lot recently, and I still fail to understand why it should be taken into account. It's a fact that it's an advantage to be used to it, but I would consider it a lack of training from the opposing team if they don't prepare to play with high ping. I'd consider that being comfortable with any difficulty (like high ping, but not only that) is a matter of skill, and the way people got that skill should be irrelevant.
well cheated hans well cheated
You're crazy, Hans is a complete player and has an impressive quality clean

LOLOLOLOL

Everyone saw IN ETTV :D
Hans my good irc friend. I will defend him till grave

GROUP A: UK>CHILE>ICELAND>BRASIL
i dont know why this cup have the name of "Nation Cup" will be better if u guys put EURO nation cup rules, its amazing we cant play with a fair rules... if u want play in euro server lets play in chille too, or play in USA servers with fair pings. ( in this game they had 190 and us 210 still a little advantage and we still cant play there lol , that would be fair or not ? , if is a really NC lets make a decent cup whit fair rules. LETS PLAY IN CHILE and test 300 ping =) we challenge any1
I agree. They just don't give a flying fuck about non-european teams and they will always make decisions suited to their own comfort. Convenient Decisions. So sad.
Thats actually true MercE, but the game is amolst dead, so who cares?
