Another LAN victory in the pocket


I went to LANBAUER this weekend with a mix team sponsored by Inferno-Online. For those who haven't heard about this, the players except myself were walle, threat, face and FYRR73. We were supposed to go with GeT_RiGhT and f0rest instead of the Giants players at first but I guess fnatic had something other planned for them.

Anyhow, Friday started off with me taking the train into Stockholm city to meet up with Anton "Budak" at Inferno-Online. I've had some car problems lately so he was kind enough to let us borrow the company's Volvo V40 t4. Since they use the car everyday it was a pretty big sacrifice on their part. I wanna say big thanks to the guys, and especially Anton, at Inferno-Online for making this whole thing possible!

With a sense of relief that I finally had a way to get to Gävle, the city where LANBAUER is held, I went home to start packing. Actually, me and Therese had to drop of our cats Tiffany and Nota at her mom's house first so they were taken care of for the weekend. I guess either allen or zet could have taken care of them since they were at my place chillin during the weekend, but one should never trust lazy gamers.. =D

After packing computers, gaming gear and some clothes, we went back to Stockholm city once again to pick up Johan "face". He lives far down south in Sweden compared to us so he arrived at the central station by train at about 4 pm. We picked him up and started driving north towards Gävle right away!

Well..actually, we didn't.....Dennis was at the wheel and he started driving south on the freeway instead of north haha =DD
With the cops right behind (uuuuh, scaaary) we finally turned around and started going in the right direction =)

It's about 200 km to Gävle from Stockholm so it's not the furthest drive in the world but we stopped for some crappy junk food at McDonalds on the way so it took a lil while before we reach our destination.

We arrived at LANBAUER at about 7 pm and were right away recognized by typical Swedish fanboys who giggled a bit and obviously thought we are SOOOOO DAAAAMN COOOOL MAAAAAAN =DD Nah I don't know, I hope they didn't. That would be a bit scary. But seriously.....We are cool.

After carrying most of our things into our room, Dennis went to pick up Björn "threat" and Emil "FYRR73" at the local train station. Therese and I got all tables and chairs sorted and after a while the whole team of undoubtable nerds were gathered. After a few hand shakes (no hugs cause once again, we're too cool for that kinda girly behavior) everyone got their stuff set up and started playing CSDM and whatnot.

We were told the first match was set to start at 10 pm but there were some delays as usual. Not that bad though and in a few hours time we had won our group and were through to the playoffs. I went to bed first cause I hate playing tired. Oh right, I just have to tell you about the SUPER LAN BED I bought =D It's just HUGE, 207x163x48cm (larger than my bed) and has an electrical pump that pumps it up to full size in 4 minutes with the push of a button, friggin awesome duuuude =) Definitely worth its prize of 50 euro!

Oops, looks like Therese made some pasta carbonara, I'll tell you the rest a little while, don't want my food to get cold!
