MLG Orlando and Going Into MLG Providence
Posted 2011-11-08 ZeKe
Well where to begin, lets start off with how I knew the weekend of this tournament was going to be a good one no matter how we did since it was me and Str8 Sicks birthday (October 14th and 15th) and Orlando has always been a blast. But onto the games which were to be played, we had Instinct, Final Boss, Carbon, and Str8 Rippin in pool play which if you played Halo 2 you'd know these are some pretty big names that have been around for a while. Well our first series was against Carbon and we ended up winning 3-0 and I was playing phenomanal or as Chig would say "Protonominal". Then our next series was against Final Boss and what can I say we came out flat and got the hot 3-0 in their favor. We ended up just heading back to the room talking about what we need to do so that we might still have a chance tomorrow.
Well Saturday came around and we had to play Str8 Rippin on main stage and ended up 3-1'ing them while T2 tried the old bathroom trick when it was 2-1. Next up we had a series against Instinct probably in most peoples eyes as the most dominant team in Halo right now, now knowing that we have never played them before online or at the tournament we were pumped to finally see what would happen after an intense series we ended up losing 3-2 which in our eyes not what we wanted but fulfilling to know that we could keep up with them and give them a challenge.
Now Sunday was the only day we had left to show what we were made of, no more pool play just regular halo playing the best teams to get to the top. We ended up meeting Carbon again and since we were up 3-0 it was a continuation series which we ended up winning and not slacking to make it 6-0. We were pumped because we were playing really well and then we find out we have to play our kryptonite Status Quo, I say this because we have yet to beat them in tournament play this year. We were hoping this would be the first time we'd beat them but that didn't go our way and ended up losing 3-1 even though things could of went both ways. Well that was our tournament and didn't do what we wanted to accomplish, but now all focus is onto Providence.
Our preparation for Providence is beggining online we've been practicing almost everyday, then we also have a LAN or a boot camp set up a week before the event against pro team Active Rush and Chasers team (Unannounced). Hopefully this will push us over the edge to do it big for this event.
Well thanks for taking the time to read this and expect big things from Team Fnatic Classic
Special thanks to all our fans it wouldn't be possible without you guys and a shout out to my amazing team Chig, Str8 Sick, and Russo.
