In Sweden, Tack!

Just checking in from Sweden to give everyone some pre-Dreamhack updates from the coL camp. We got into Jonkoping yesterday and spent some time at the A6-center, aka the main mall here. Today, we slept in then went and checked out Dreamhack in the Elmia part of town to get a feel for what to expect this weekend.
To be honest, it was a bit strange to see the massive amount of people all there to play video games. Dreamhack has 4 large exhibition halls full mostly of BYOC gamers, with the majority playing CS. I honestly don't think you could get that many CS players in one place at one time in America even if you paid them.
Right now, we're back in the hotel room (after an amazing Swedish dinner) and just checking out some demos of the teams in our group. We have the Swedish side Begrip who looks to be our toughest challenge as they will be extremely talented aimers. We also will be facing Rodcad, the Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg) qualifying team who we expect to be strong. The final team, who will be qualifying via the BYOC tournament (prob. already known but not updated yet) should also have some good skill.
Well, that's all for now. We start matches tomorrow at 5 PM here (11 AM EST I believe) so wish us luck!
