The Fnatic LA (S)experience
Posted 2012-06-13 Cyanide
The first day I arrived at the same time with Lamia and we were supposed to wait for Pheilox at the airport and of course the guy ended up waiting 2 hours for his luggage and made us wait too, what a d**k move and totally his fault. Well whatever, we carried on the hotel in a shuttle and there was a jacuzzi and pool there so we had a lot of fun there ;) (no homo). Soaz arrived a bit later with Peke, and we headed to Santa Monica from Anaheim and had a couple of beers (of course only milk for me) in a friends' house and ended up sleeping there since it was like 100 euros on a cab from Anaheim to there and we wanted to spend our only free day there.
So day two, we headed to the beach and of course we all got sunburned like the nerds we are, was relatively painful but we survived. Also had a lot of fun in the Riot offices and they showed us all kind of cool stuff like the incoming champion called "Cyanide, The Best Jungler EU" and a new skin "Reverse Anivia", might've been just me dreaming though. We ate at a place which served cheese and meat and their motto was "Its so wrong its right". Felt slightly bad about myself after eating that.
Day 3 we just were at the event and were bored most of the day, for some reason they let the spectators into the hall before players (makes a lot of sense right?) and our first match was at like 8:00pm so didn't do much that day. Fourth day we had our game vs TSM Evo in the morning and I was really excited how we would do, and we beat them when they had 91% of the crowds votes to be the winner. Showed them huh? The victory was shortlasting though since we just got r*ped by their big brothers later that day, but was nice nevertheless. Day 4 we started by losing to Dynamic which was really horrible from us, dumb mistakes and bad focus. I personally blame the fact that the security didn't let me bring my coffee to the gaming hall so I couldn't carry my team. I really expected us to beat them and was sad to lose to them. Last day we just pretty much travelled, peke had to wait 9 hours at the airport (sucker) and he even missed his continuing flight from London (lol).
Soaz doesn't look too happy about his upcoming initiation ritual.
Overall I had a great time, and this was also the first event we had to go to without Shushei and Mellisan which made me a bit sad, but sOAZ did his best to fill the hole with his horrible singing and other stuff. Also I was happy to meet Pheilox and Krepo for the first time and also met some other great people like the Curse team, Youngbuck, Justin and Alex, and also some people I knew from before like Chris and Sam.
Thanks for reading my blog and hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
