This weekend whilst our Halo 3 team are competing at Multiplay i37, our CounterStrike 1.6 team are playing in the WCG Finland qualifiers at Assembly Summer in Helsinki, where they are also joined by our Team Fortress 2 team. With the winning team receiving an all-expenses paid trip to the WCG Finals in China later this year, the pressure is on to reverse their recent results and affirm their status as the number 1 team in Finland over their main rivals Excello, whose lineup includes former cc// players contE and plastE.
We have been forced to use Konsta “kookas” Kaisla as a standin for Niko “naSu” Kovanen for this event as Niko has been taken to hospital. We would like to wish him a speedy recovery and thank Konsta for playing with us at this event.
Our team won their group with ease yesterday and just beat munkka 2-0 in the semi final. They will now face either Excello in the final, which will take place at 23.30CET. You can tune into the match on HLTV.org
Update: The team came from losing the first map inferno 16-10 to take train 16-7 and nuke 16-8 to qualify for the WCG Finals which will take place in Chengdu, China in November. We’re also pleased to say that Niko “naSu” Kovanen made a quick recovery and was able to play the final.
