Championships is underway!!

These last couple of months being on this Fnatic team has been amazing. I have created such a great bond with all my teamates. We started out as the underdogs going into MLG Anaheim and took 3rd place with such dominance. After that we were determined to stick together and practice, trying to learn new things as we went along, trying out new straegies as a team, ALWAYS looking 1 step ahead trying to get better than what we are. After Anaheim, Raleigh was coming up, we didn't have as MUCH practice for this event since the events were so close together, only one month of practice. We still managed to play pretty well and got 6th place at Raleigh. Even though we didn't do as good as we did in Anaheim it didn't bring our heads down at all because we were still playin very good, we just had an unfortunate loss. We still looked forward for Orlando and got ready for it practicing like always. Orlando wasn't a great turn out, we placed 11th which really didn't feel good considering we just dropped so many placings since we first placed 3rd. Now, even though it didn't feel good we still tried to look passed it, we had a great and fun weekend since it was mine and (Prototypes) birthdays. We still managed to have a fun weekend, we were able to meet Sam Mathews and i must say he is such an awesome person! He was so fun to hang out with and had so many jokes and a great personality. We also got to meet up with Gunnar and recieve a pair of glasses(our choice) which was awesome. Okay, so after that tournament we talked about what we needed to do in order to be ready for championships and play to our FULL potential. The first week back it was rough... it felt like we lost our touch with teamwork and everything was just not going our way. These last 2 weeks, has been amazing... we are playing nearly perfect Halo. Everyone is listening and communicating, TRYING their absolute hardest to win every game. We are doing everything that we talk about and putting a lot of effort into our teamwork. We are playing exceptional, especially last night we played 3 teams and altogether we went 18-0 not dropping one game. Everyone is individually destroying as well as LISTENING which is the key to winning. If we keep this up for the next weeks especially having this LAN in Laguna Beach coming up the weekend before the tournament, i think we have a GREAT shot at taking championships. We are going to be Lanning, if you don't know that term it's like a "Bootcamp" Teams show up to someones house or setup and we all play on LAN for a weekend just practicing. Fnatic, Active Rush, and another unknown team is going to be there, It will definitely get us prepared for the following weekend in Providence. It's all coming up so fast and i can't wait to take first place where it matters most!
