Dreamhack and Kiev qualifier.
For the first time in my life was just as much focus on doing things for sponsors have pictures taken. As it was playing cs for a tournament. Dreamhack tournament was a tough mentally because you had to be at all times. Not only when we was playing but also before and after. It was great to meet everyone who works and plays in fnatic different players. I'm impressed with how good grip on things fnatic have. It is like being serious company while being human and going up in the progress of the various teams. It helped, for example, a lot to Sam came and stood behind us and gave us support. Even when things went bad for us. We managed to get back in all matches in all maps. I am so impressed with this team. I have 4 players who can turn everything negative into something good. Dreamhack for me. It is hard to start all matches poorly also had to fight back. But thanks to good team play, good one-man performance and a great calling we managed to create a "small" sensation for many people. There are not many who have believed we could win the Dream Hack. But we thought even at that and we are confident we can beat any team on a good day.
I still do not understand completely that I have won a big tournament. For me it has always been on almost to proceed from the group stage with my old team. To playing finals. It is a big leap. It is as if it is not quite dawned on me that I am good enough at it. I am not always good enough to carry the fnatic name. But when we do well as a team. So, I am proud to have it. Constantly try to improve myself and commit myself to play for such a good team.
Now you have gone home and Dreamhack has been put at a distance. I want to play all the time. While others want to take a well deserved break. So it has been difficult to get trained up to kiev qualifier. So I was really afraid we could not manage to Qualify us to Global Finals Kiev.
But the day came and we had to play Stage 3 qualifier. We started out really okay to beat FF and attax pretty safe. But then it became the Lions. I do not know what is with them. But they have a good grip on us. I've lost to them 3 times in the various online tournaments. We've only beaten them once. So they are probably our nemesis. But they played well especially zneel was really fierce in battle. We lost and had a walk in the lower brackets. While we waited for almost 3 hours to play.
We hit FF again pretty safe. Then came a difficult game for me. We were to meet my old team. I feel really bad to play against them. I can not explain why but it seems a difficult game for me to play. But my team was fortunately very good so we won very safely over them. Then came the main battle. Towards mouse sports as just switch ninja out with zonic and they must have gone a little into a status as being the team for 2012. Although they have not played yet.
We began CT on nuke and got a good start we got ahead 4-0 also we lost to a stupid split rush inside. We played really bad and lost a lot of stupid rounds as we should have had won. But we lost 9-6. But yes, once again we are able to come back and although we lost some silly rounds as t, we won some really good rounds. I am so happy for the other 4 played so well. Because I was really far from my good games today. I played a particularly well. So I am glad that we won. For otherwise I would have given myself to blame for it.
We won and we're all super excited. Now we are going to Kiev in January. We hold a Christmas break and then starts up with the prac after New Year.
I would like to thank everyone who supports me and the team. Also, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope for a happy New Year.
Thanks for your time.
