The new TrackMania Nations Forever Premierships Competition Amateur Season 9 has began with the first match at
Sunday the 13.05.2012. Our first team played in the Division2. After we finished tmm at 2nd place, we wanted to play
a good CAP9 season.
Our first opponent was Saphire by 1puRe eSports.
We were able to start pretty good in the first match because John had beaten Teka in the 1on1, and papou and Oli
defeated Andreas and Skeazöuu in the 2on2. Unfortunatly Oli had a disconnect in the 3on3, which lead to an unlucky loss
here. Also the 5on5 was very unlucky because we lost 6:7. That made an overall score of 2:4 in the first match, not the
best start for a tournemant.
result: dac-SP 2:4 Saphire by 1puRe eSports
In the 2nd match, we faced Iconic.
Oli was really looking forward to win his 1vs1 against wtrr, which he finally won 7:1 with an insame performance!
Papou and momo lost the 2on2 with 2:5. The 3vs3 started as bad as the 3vs3 against 1pure. Iconic was able to take
the lead with 3:6. However, Oli, icey and momo turned it into a 7:6! After this great comeback we wanted to win the
match and celebrate the first overall win in CAP9. Iconic had no chance in the last submatch because of a great
team performance by dacSP. Iconic retired from CAP9 afterwards , the result was changed into 6:0 for dacSP.
result: dac-SP 6:0 (5:1) Iconic
Our 3rd opponent was Seven Eleven .
We often played against 711 in the last time. There´s not much to say about this match. Oli did a great job in his 1vs1 by
beating Kael 7:5. The 2on2 was lost 1:5, therfore we won 7:1 in 3vs3. Also the 5vs5 was a clear win by dacSP because only
Kael was able to go our performance.
result: dac-SP 5:1 Seven Eleven
In the 4th match we faced EvC DarkTeam .
Against EvC DarkTeam, we only lost again the 2vs2 and won all other submatches. So the resulst was 5:1 for dacSP. EvC DarkTeam retired from CAP9 afterwards , the result was changed into 6:0 for dacSP.
result: dac-SP 6:0 (5:1) EvC DarkTeam
Our 5th opponent was Mouse Control TMNF
The match against mCon wasn´t played at all. They retired from CAP9 before our match were played.
result: dac-SP 6:0 Mouse Control TMNF
After this defwin, we were looking forward to play a match again. This time, we had to race against
Druidz.TMNF, a very strong and friendly swedish team.
John was able to win the 1vs1 against veLLe 7:1. As usual, we lost 2on2 against Slink and smurre who did a pretty good
job here, especially slink. Slink and John were also the two drivers who dominated the 3vs3. But icey and oli did a better
job than Nick and Cortez. In the end dacSP won 7:4. Afterwards, we won 7:3 in the 5vs5 because of a great team
performance. So we were able to secure our second place in the CAP9 in front of Druidz. (stream link: http://sv.twitch.tv/teamdruidz)
result: dac-SP 5:1 Druidz.TMNF
Our last groupmatch was against A New Era
Because we secured our 2nd place against druidz, and ANE could not climb or fall in the ladder, both teams were pretty
much untrained in the last match of CAP9. In the end, we won clearly with 6:0.
result: dac-SP 6:0 A New Era
So, after all matches were played, 1pure was on top of the ladder followed by dacSP, druidz and 711. That lead to the
playoff matches between:
Seven Eleven vs Saphire by 1puRe eSports
Druidz.TMNF vs dac-SP .
The match Druidz.TMNF vs dac-SP and the CAP9 final was streamed by Druidz(stream link: http://sv.twitch.tv/teamdruidz)
In the playoffs, we wanted to take revenge against 1pure because of the unlucky loss in the first match. They managed to
beat 711 and went straight into the grand final. Because druidz had a lack of players in the semifinal, we
clearly won with 26:10 points.
result: dac-SP 6:0 Druidz.TMNF
So, the grand final of CAP9 was taking place between dacSP and 1pure. In the 1vs1, Papou was facing YoYo.
Unfortunatly, YoYo won 7:5. Also the 2on2 was lost by dacSP. Kuduro and icey couldn´t win against Teka and Skeazöuu.
Therefore, we had a lot of pressure in the 3vs3 because we had to win it. Otherwise, 1pure would have won
the whole match and the CAP9.
But Papou, John and icey could resist the pressure and showed an incredible performance. We won 7:1! Finally,
the 5vs5 would decide who will win CAP9. Yoyo, Teka, Andreas, KoryaD and Skeazöuu were challening John, Kuduro,
Oli, icey and momo.
In the end, we were able to take revenge of the first loss against 1pure because we won 7:4 in the 5vs5 against a
really strong opponent.
result: dac-SP 4:2 Saphire by 1puRe eSports
All in all, it was a great season for dacSP. Our first team deserved to win CAP9 and also our second team managed to
raise up into division 4!
