This weekend our CounterStrike: Source team are competing at Lan79 in Breissure, France alongside all of Europe’s top teams. Coming into this event off the back of 2nd place at The Gadget Show, where we became the first team to beat European number 1 Verygames on LAN we are quietly confident of a good performance. However, we haven’t had as much practise for the event as we would have liked due to replacing Mx with HenryG after The Gadget Show. We’ll bring you updates throughout the event, and for up to date information you can follow us on Twitter.
Update 1: We passed through the groupstage undefeated, without really being challenged. Waiting for the rest of the groups to finish so we learn who we’ll play in the knockout stage, and when.
Update 2: We won the first 2 games without any problems. However, trouble ensued against ALTERNATE, who won the first half of Nuke 14-1 after winning the cointoss and starting CT. However, our boys did the unthinkable and won the second half 15-0 to take the victory. We will now play RedLine or Reason, and ourÂ best guess at a starting time is 22.30GMT, 1h30m from now.
Update 3: We started the day with a poor performance against Reason on tuscan. This time we couldn’t do anywhere near enough to come back after a poor first half, and went down 16-6. We then faced 4Kings on dust2, and destroyed their hopes of a repeat of iSeries on the same map, winning inferno 16-7. We’ll now face RedLine who just beat Dignitas to decide who makes their way onto the podium.
Update 4: RedLine were better on the day and came away with a 16-7 victory, leaving us in 4th position. Not what we were looking for, but amongst a strong field of teams there are a number of big names beneath us.
