Our National Battlefield 3 PC team has beaten Italy and is now in the top 8 of the Battlefield 3 Nations Cup, but faces a great challenge to progress to the next round.

South Africa vs Italy

South Africa took the win by ticket count after winning the first mp and losing the second. The first match was played on map Damavand Peak on a South African server, in round 1 South Africa won by 121 tickets to 0 and round two 219 tickets to 0.

The second match was played on map Operation Metro on an Italian server, where Italy won the first round 105 to 0 and the second 169 to 0. South Africa however won the over all game and progresses through to the next round because their ticket count was higher.

Top 8 playoffs (Premier League)

To progress to the top 4 South Africa will need to get through Finland, which will be no easy task. The Finnish team are currently top of their group and haven’t lost one match throughout the cup. They are also 2012’s second place winners.

Here are what the match ups for the cup look like:

I like bacon and games, and occasionally I say something coherent about it. I'm not old or cynical, and I'm not the Dork Knight. I AM SHE-RA! Wait, what?

    joh joh! Host is the game decider.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Careful South Africa… the Finnish once held off the Soviets during the Winter War with nothing but a farmer with a sniper’s rifle.

    • Deon Steyn

      The winter soldier…

    • Nicholas Rowan

      Simo Häyhä – what a badass.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        The original action hero!

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    Go Team!

  • Sandelk

    So, essentially its Europe… and South Africa… Nice going boys, keep it up.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Did all the Italians rage quit towards the end? That sort of unsporting behaviour I’d expect from the French!

    • Deon Steyn

      They dived and the ref didn’t buy it.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Watch them blame the latency…. Those South Africans are playing with 200+ ping… we just couldn’t hit them…

  • Deon Steyn

    “Finnish” them.

  • Snormossel

    Did anyone notice it’s 7 european countries and then south africa? Or am I wrong?

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    So this is where the CTRL+V was being used for XD

  • Robin

    I’m confused – how can one team have more kills than the other team has deaths? It’s most evident in the second last screenie where both teams have a lot more kills than the other has deaths?

    • Bullet

      If you get resurrected by a teammate it doesn’t count as a death but still counts as a kill for the other person.

    • DOA

      If you rez a player the death in their tally does not count but the kill still counts….

      • Robin

        Ah, that makes sense – obviously I haven’t played in a while!

    Now to play the guys who have 200mb lines.

    which costs them the same as what we pay for 384k.
    I had to explain what cap was to a fin once, i still dont think he understands.

    thats not a good sign
    best of luck Safas
