Yesterday we saw the final in the Raptor Rage cup. The battle was for 5 RAPTOR-GAMING M3 Platinum Gaming Mices.



The cup started of with 64 teams in a double elimination system.

The battle over 3 days was eventually won by Czech Republic eSuba who beaten Netherlands TLR in the final with 2 maps to 0. With this award they win 2 prizes out of 3 finals. Earlier they won the September Madness Sapphire COD4 Cup and lost in the final against United Kingdom OldBooth in the September Madness OCZ COD4 Cup.

Despite the removal of Skandinavia zerohero, due to playing with banned players, we can look back on another successful EsportsHeaven cup.

Congratulations to eSuba and a big thank you to Raptor for the great prizes.

We hope to see you back at the next event.

After their match against zH, team imperial reported to us that they had some doubts about zH.diego, thinking he was infact player kingz.no which is already banned on Clanbase.com. After a couple of checks in their roster we spotted player zH.alexzan which is also banned on Clanbase.com and we removed him from the cup, but couldn't do any thing about diego.

Today i got a message while chatting on irc from a Clanbase admin which showed me that link http://www.pbbans.com/mbi-viewban-301d6aa7-vb146415.html
As you can all see the link of pbbans.com is showing player zH.diego being banned for Aimbot just before the bracket matches of Raptor Rage Cod4 cup.

Since we just cannot reverse all zH matches we decided to reverse the zH vs imperial match, since they were the ones reporting us that something was strange. Now team imperial will play their match against team dreamrar at 18:00 CET so we can continue our cup at 19 CET without delay.

We really hope this is the last case about cheating during EsportsHeaven cups, firstly because it's totally wrong to cheat in online gaming, secondly because it's even worse when there are prizes to win and even because you should understand that we will find out if you did cheat and you will be banned from all of our future cups too.

The match started on citystreets, moOse home map, with the swedish winning the knife and picking attack; it was a very exiting first half with teams exchanging rounds and finishing with a tight 6-6.

The second half started like the first ended but after the 4th round ROX couldn't find a way to overtake moOse defense; the swedish guys gained lots of confidence after a couple of win rounds and that made them unstoppable till the end of the map. Citystreets finished 13-9 for moOse.

Coming from the loser bracket moOse now knew they could even win the match since the overall score of maps was even.

ROX had a really different idea and we all realized that after the 5th round, where with a 3-2 lead they started to win round after round, finishig the first half 7-5 for them. During the second half the swedish side of moOse tryed different tactics for stopping the russian attack but everything they tryed just didn't worked and ROX win the map 13-10 and the whole tourney.

We would like to thank all the teams for their interest and we would also like to thank Alienware, who sponsored the event with a £500 cash prize!

As there are only 64 slots in this tournament, ESH will run a qualification round to give more teams the chance to get in.
80 teams have been approved to play in this cup but there is only space for 64. 48 teams got invited directly into the tournament. This are the teams that got a high seeding and the teams that signed up first. The other 32 teams will play a qualifier to get into the tournament. So 16 of those teams get into the final tournament.

Direct Invites (ordered by country) +



Qualifiers +



UPDATE! Teams participating in the qualifier now have until Wednesday 14th October 18:30 CET on a bo3 (Backlot/Strike, Crash to decide). The first round of the 64 teams bracket starts on the same day (Wednesday) at 19:00 CET.

After the match against starlike, the dutch team TLR started questioning their opponents assuming they were cheating during the match.

Esportsheaven CoD4 Staff checked demos from team starlike and it has been decided to remove them from the play-offs and to ban the team from the next ESH Cups as they've been caught cheating during their match against TheLastResort.

We are really sad about that but cheating in a cup where there are prizes is something we cannot let go without punishment. We replaced starlike team with TLR as they were the 2nd team of their group.
