We started the tournament out of having to meet Winfakt from Finland. They had recently changed. But they themselves have said it was a reason that they could pracc more and everyone wanted to do it. We ended up playing inferno. I knew they were a good team. But still feel that we are a better team. We go to all our games as favorites upstairs victory to DreamHack. But it turns out that we need to wake up if we are to win the fight. We win gunround. But as happens again and again we lose the second round to deagles. We were money fucked and never really get into the game again. We bought too much with lowmoney. At position 9-2 to Winfakt, we wake up a bit and start shooting again. We end up with a 9-6 at the half. Not great but okay. We have a good t site. We are often going out being best in the second half. We start out really bad with a lost gunround. 10-6 to Winfakt and it looks bad. But we were also able to win the second round with deagles. It will be the turning point of the match. We take many rounds they get 2 rounds here and there. But we were too strong on the day of winfakt. We end up winning 16-12.
The second match is against Mousesports. The fight is the one I was most concerned that we could win. Mousesports has changed ninja out with zonic. Now they have 2 of the best danish players with the best in Germany. It sounds dangerous and they will be it, I am sure. We play inferno again. Do you think we surprised them with it. They had improved most in the Tuscan or nuke. So we were a little ahead of psyche even before starting. We win knife choose to start as a terrorist. We win gunround and take rounds on rounds. We drive them to say the least about. We end up winning 12-3. We change sides and ends up losing gunround and the next eco rounds. But then it said fnatic it all again. We will safely and quickly 4 rounds in a row to finish 16-6 outcome.
Last match of the group and the battle for first place its against Moscow5. A team there is hard to play against because they are so indifferent in their style of play you cannot really read them. For they are doing so many different things all the time. If they have a good day they can beat any team in the world. But we end up at the train against them. We lose the knife round and ofcause we ended as Terrorist. We win gunround and the next anti ecos. We end up losing 6 rounds on Terrorist site. We had really good hands on them and half ends 9-6 in our favor. There should they think it ought to be enough to win on the top side of the map. But no, we quickly got something to think about. Moscow5 run on taking rounds after rounds. WE even manages to throw a 1on4 away to romjke. But then we get our awper started. We are down to 6-0. We take the round by round and ends up taking 7 rounds in a row, thus winning the match 16-12.
We end up as number 1 in the group. Certainly approved. For an event where everyone could win the group. That meant we had to meet natus Vincare in the semifinals. Ukraine on the home track. On their "computers". A really strong team. We start out with having to play inferno. I do not feel comfortable. It is as I feared. We lose the round by round and I missed far too many of my shots. I manage not to get started in the semi finals. I do not feel my shot record when I shoot at the opponent. We lost the first map 16-11. The second map is Tuscan. One map we were really strong at the last tournament. We are able again to lose some incredible rounds. We have taken over but cannot hit our shots. We get a little back. But then we end up a 2on2 facing up and down on it all. I place myself really well compared to navis 2 players. I end up having to shoot someone who has a bomb in his hand. I shoot straight into his stomach. But yes bug when plants do that I do not get him down. I get shot and we lose the round. It was the worst game I've played it really hurt me to have to cause we lost a semi final. But here I must take my cloak. It was just not good enough. We lose 16-11. Navi is in the final. They end up crashing SK completely. Worthy winners. Congratulations to them.
We will play 3rd place battle against moscow5. We start out by winning the first map. But then it goes completely wrong. People seem not at all motivated and we end up losing pretty clear in the last 2 maps.
We are number 4 Which is a big disappointment for me personally. But I can only thank myself for this I apologize for my performance. I will and must work even harder to get better and be more cool at all. I hope I can come back strong for the World finals. Now I begin to train me up to what we hope will be another success for fnatic team.
It was everything to me. Take care.
