What I think about the Copenhagen Games event, my team and how we are improving as a group of people
Hello! Long time, no speak (?!)..

Just some days ago we were attending the Copenhagen Games 1.6 tournament in Denmark, Copenhagen. We had a pretty neat practise at home, but we haven't play this this before the a tournament when we created this team.. We had some free days before the tournament, people had things to do and I was on the DH; invitational in Stockholm.. So we didn't play as much as we wanted and "needed" So I was not so super sure where we would end, but when you feel that you'r practise is going good and things are getting better and better each day, you get somesort of "calmness" in yourself that makes you feel more relax for the up-coming tour! Anyway..

Groupstage 1;
eXplicit 16-1
Gamerzone 16-5
rimosso 16-5
x6tence 16-2

Groupstage 2;
munkka 16-2
lions 16-7
fnatic 16-10

As the groupstage went pretty smooth for us, we were also in some sort of "group of death" at this tournament again and coming up of top (again!) we were pleased about how good we are when we _really want it_ !

playoffs;
Moscow5 2-0 (16-13,25-21)
RAGE 2-1 (16-13,14-16,16-5)
Frag eXecutors 0-2 (13-16,7-16)

We first played against Moscow5, we have played against them before. We lost last time on LAN with 16-3 on inferno on IEM: European Finals, so we were really hungry to play them and win over them. The game itself were abit of relief of us, showing that we can perform when it's a bo3 system instead just a bo1, as in groupstage. After a intense game against them we ended up as winning team against them!

Second game in the playoffs were against RAGE, moddii who were a SK player before had a big task against us, showing the world that he should deserve be in a big team as SK or similer! The game itself was a pretty tight but overall we ended up with a nice and secure victory on dust2 with 16-5 and we were now in the finals!

Last game, against FX. A game I'm not sure I want to talk about. This wasn't really a final at all.. After many hours of delay and so on. We were knocked down after having a foot on the first place and ended up as runners-up at the event.. Good game to them!

The event itself was nice, sad it was a BYOC tho.. Could be cool if they would make it as a NONE-BYOC next time and make the delayes that happended fix to next time! :) The crew help't us when we needed something and were nice to us. So from my point of view, nice overall!

How good are we getting?

This is a topic, Iam really instressed in right now. Iam seein' everywhere that people arn't sure that we are a "team that can take goldes" and "can they beat NaVi?". I'm just sure that we arn't really there yet, but we are close.. Really close to make a big step into that place and showing usself as we want to! If you look at the previous result this year..

- #7-8 IEM5: Kiev (European Championship)
- #4 IEM5: Hanover (Championship Finals)
- #2 Xperia Play, Copenhagen Games

What can you take from this?

First event, not so good..
Seecond event, getting better and better..
Third event, close but not close enough!

So what can we see on the next event? Hopefuly a first place! Then we can start to play really good and perform as we want and make our fans, the organization of SK proud of us!

As of my team, we are getting better and better for each practise we are heading us-self into and dennis is coming closer and closer into the team and I'm proud of having such a nice guy and skilled player in our team and I hope that he wants to be with us :)

....

But anyway, that's from me and I hope you guys like what I wrote here and that you will support us even more now, we really need it to become even better!

Thanks for all the fans who never ever ends supporting us, the organization and myself ofc! And to my lovely girlfriend who came with us to the event and filmed us and other things there, thanks love< 3
