Congratulations to the "Muffin Men" for making it thru to

defeat the winners of the Semi Finals to be held between
Team "Cyber Alliance" (Salnik, Nikerochek and Abandoned) and
Team "Muffin Men" (GingerBreadMan, Skrat and Hyp3r2001/Duelist) to
win the Finals,
to see if the if the winners of the Losers Semi Finals can repeat
what was done in the last Rainbow Cup by
Yudi's team - working their way up Losers bracket, and
overcoming the 1-0 starting deficit in the Bo7 Finals to win the RCIV!

Either way one of the loser bracket teams will get a rematch against overrated.


6 of the 9 remaining players are from Russia and most likely will not be able to get the money xD

Sorry for my English. I use translator


One of March's RCIV winners from Russia,
gave me a bank contact, and
after contacting my bank, and
paying 2 international fee's ($25 and $20) the transfer went thru.

I'm not sure how the player set up the transfers, but
when explaining everything honestly to my bank, they
said it was all legit.

See Post #8 above for some more info:


The remaining 9 maps are Not accurate intelligence reports.
We won't know for sure -
what faction, locations or how many enemy AI are at each space planet/outpost.

Expect the accurate finalized Game maps about 3 hours before
arrival to Strongwyn tomorrow ~ 1200 UTC.
We will Not know the finalized game maps for the Finals until after the
Semi Finals are complete.
Even though we are not sure of the exact AI enemy threats,
study the planets and learn the terrains of each.

Looking forward to watching the championship matches tomorrow,
Starting at 1500 UTC.
