Hey folks!

K so last weekend I was in a Swedish town called Lidköping for a small event called Lankonvent. The plan was to go win a few extra bucks win some friends and here's how it went down..

The original lineup contained walle and fyrrte but they couldn't make it so me, threat and face teamed up with hibb and florenz instead and called ourselves "moneyfarmers" ^^

Anyways, we used florenz' car to get there and he picked me and threat up at our homes, my girlfriend also tagged along. The trip was like 350 km from my house and we arrived in the afternoon.

Our first game was at 10pm and two more group games followed that one before it was time for some sleep. We won all three easily and right away packed our stuff together to go sleep at hibb's place. He lives like 50 km from Lidköping so we could all crash there.

Hibb decided it would be fun with a lil street race but considering hibb drives a Porsche Boxster S and florenz a BMW 320 there never really was a real race haha =D

AAAh well, after a few hours of sleep we went back to the event. We won all our games in the winner bracket which pretty fast took us to the grand final. We had to wait a friggin long time before the lower bracket was done and the final could start, really boring.

After losing the first map in the final with like 14-16 or something we got our shit together and won the 2nd map 16-3. Worth mentioning is all the smack talk being done by our opponents called "gameheaven". They screamed how much we suck over and over again and still ended up losing 3-16 so I wonder how much they must suck then.. =) Let's hope they're happy with everything they said cause they probably aren't happy with us getting almost all the money ^^

GG pretty fun event, props to Lankonvent.

Recent gaming stuff..


Sup everyone I'm all good, hope u are too!

We've started our intense praccing for real this month. We gather up at around 5pm in ze ventrilo all days except Fridays and Saturdays. Some days we go thru some new tactics before we start the fraggin, but mostly we just try to play as much as possible to get our teamplay running smoothly. We usually have several praccs booked even before we meet up cause there's always one of five nerds sittin at home in front of the computer even tho he doesn't have to! =)))

We had big issues with many different things during CeBIT so we've really tried to focus on correcting stuff this time. Pretty much everything in our game feels fine already but we'll continue to pracc as much as possible before we go to DH Gothenburg where we'll try to qualify for KODE5!! Not everything is about things feeling good in praccs tho so please don't consider this as a promise we'll win DH Gothenburg =P

Yesterday I played a couple of mix games just to get some extra cs time in since I've had a lot of things going on outside gaming lately.

First I played a King of the hill game (staying on top of the hill for like 4 weeks or whatever earns u some cash) with walle, allen etc vs abdi, fisker, vilden and some other dudes. We won that game so right now we're the KINGS =D

The second game was with team Sweden vs Ukraine in CB Nations cup. It was a close game but we finally won it 2-1 in the end. After that crap was done with I went to bed cause I was sooo damn tired, first praccing and then playing 3 super close maps in nations cup f00ked me up! =D

I'll keep u guys updated, peace.
