Here comes a small update from IEM China.
Today we are going into the third day of the Asian global challenge and our first, and today´s only opponent, is WinFakt from Finland in a best-of-three decider who is going to qualify for the finals, and the Global finals in 2012.
I think it´s fair to say, after three days in Guangzhou, that we are all enjoying ourselves: beautiful hotel with spacious rooms along with a nice swimming pool, combined with a great mix of local and international food.
The other night I wanted to introduce my guys to the famous spicy hotpot, something that was easier said than done because: a) Many foreigners are not to keen to try local dishes, and b) There was a queue to the busy restaurant and we ended up waiting impatiently for 1 hour before our group finally got a table, even that they promised us one within 10 minutes. Any way, the team really appreciated the food so hopefully such endeavours will be easier in the future!
The group we managed to win on Saturday was actually rather tough for us. We somehow found ourselves throw the first game against Anexis on tuscan away, despite the fact we won both pistols and 4th rounds! This forced us to win the upcoming two games which we luckily did in great manner. Anexis on the other side was less lucky(maybe jetlag hit them later?) losing to the local team Efuture, which turned the group in to a three-way tie from which Fnatic and eFuture proceeded from after counting the rounds.
That´s about it for now, until next time: take care!
