Our new line-up has been announced, well I shouldn't say new more like re-adding Irukandji back to the roster. So far we have played in two ESL cups winning both vs ue and loaded in the other. Were currently playing in EG's 1.6 tournament for a trip to China and laptops on top of two grand total for winning the tournament. Hopefully we can pick up the pase now and continue.
The summer time of events are over and the results weren't really what I was expecting. The only highlight was getting 5-8th or something like that at ESWC which still to me isn't enough to justify our other results. Hands down our team was raw-skilled based and we didn't really have a leader to help put our minds together at certain points but we tried our best to fix it. Don't get me wrong I'm not hating on Xp3 but even he wanted to consider going back to fragging which was his role on teams in France and already I can tell the difference in style and fitting into his new role is perfect. It also helps because both Xp3 and Irukandji can call tactics and still manage their own game play. To make it short since I always blog before/after events we needed to re-add Andrew back to the roster to help bring back a certain work ethic we use to have. It's unfortunate what had to happen to Scott because I don't only consider him just a teammate, I consider him a friend who I really enjoyed playing with and hanging out chillen at events(esp Stockholm,Paris). Letting him go after those 3-4 months of playing was very rough and he will be missed. He is a awesome person and if he chooses to continue to play this game he will be a GREAT player for whatever team he decides. I don't really see him playing for any other team in the US right now as I believe none of them are worthy of even having him apart of their team but that's just my personal opinion and no hate to other teams.
Anyway........... I was thinking about starting to play SC2 or maybe WoW again in my free time, dont get me wrong i love playing cs but certain times I wanna enjoy another game. If you play SC2 right now currently lemme know what you think about it thus far. I don't pay attention to other games so if anyone knows any other sick games to try and play lemme know!! Also would you guys enjoy any video type blogs? If so of what? Like me playing Deathmatch? I pug a lot and i can record more demos and upload them to the website. Maybe some helpful tips or tricks that you can ask me to explain because you don't understand it. I was also thinking about doing a question and answer type of thing where you ask me something and I'll leave a response for you. Hopefully i don't get any insane wacko questions lol but I'll do my best to answer them. I know we have "pub nights" but maybe public 10mans or pugs would be better because players can talk to us while were playing and that to me would be much more fun instead of pubbing with coL players lol xD. Anything else just lemme know on here, I'm very interested in communicating with players/fans more!
Alright guys I'll keep you posted with anything that comes up for us in the future and lemme know your thoughts on the above~
