Sandwarrior... in france?

Hey, been a while since my last blog.
Anyhow, recently there have been some struggles for the team due to several reasons, we've been losing alot of matches to teams we normally beat easily.
One of the reasons, was that at one point, atleast I can say for myself, I lost motivation to play, and I only came online to play tournament games and then went off, which obviously effects the team because there are patches and the game keeps changing and you have to play to keep up to date.
The good part is that I got my motivation back, not sure how it came back suddenly but I just enjoy the game alot more and play.
Even though I got my motivation for playing back, it still wasn't enough and we lost a few more times, again, to teams we normally don't, which brings me to another problem.
We, as a team, mastered the arts of "Throwing", meaning through intense training and strategic disccusions, managed to come up with interesting and special ways of gaining a big advantage in matches, and then perform irrational moves and die deep behind enemy lines alone versus 395064 enemies.
So, now that we have thrown many games, last night it looked abit different, we only managed to throw 1 game out of 3, which resulted in a won versus PhB(formerly known as Empr).
We played alot better, had better synergy than the last few weeks and things we're going smoothly, and it's definatly fun to have that confident feeling (not over confident of course) that we can beat everyone again, and this was definatly a step in the right direction for us as a team, and hopefully it will only continue to being better and reclaim our title as the best HoN team in the world shortly.
Besides our team issues, I am very excited about the upcoming offline tournament, Gamers Assembly, in france which we will be attending.
Shades on, ready for some big plays in france. :)
I have never been in france, but
heard some interesting things about it and definatly am excited to go there, and spend some time with my team, as it was very fun last time in dreamhack winter in sweden.
As for the tournament itself, from the competitve scene in HoN, we are the only "high tier" team going to that tournament, which is slightly dissapointing because it is more interesting to be playing against top tier teams, although I wont underestimate any of the french teams, who knows what they can do!
