Blog: e-Stars & IEM NYC blogs

August 29th, 2011 15:08

Just figured I'd let you guys know I've written a blog on the WinFakt website about our run at e-Stars Seoul 2011 and last nights IEM New York Global Challenge pre-qualifier. If you're interested in my thoughts on how we did and how we spent our extra days in Seoul, feel free to check out the blog here -

I've also once again written a blog on SETT's website for the Finns so if you understand Finnish (and even if you don't there's pictures and videos over there) check it out as well -

Also, if you're interested in daily updates on my team ranging from HLTV ips to links to any interviews or blogs we write, become a fan of my Facebook page where I try to give you guys as many updates as possible!


good man ;)

#7 You can click on the links in 5 seconds and read whatever part you'd like so I don't really see a point. #8 There will be news one way or the other soon #12 Sure, when it's over an hour long drive #13 I think ave is a better strat caller than ArcadioN so depending how much he still did in their team in 2011 they might be a bit worse tactically but I think Friis is one of the best AWPers in the world so they will at least have more skill now #15 Videos looked like a mixture of CS:S and CoD as far as I could tell, we'll see how it plays/if CS 1.6 players get to go to try to improve the same, can't really say too much yet considering it's barely even a beta and they're just videos

I hope the users don't miss your "replies" :P
2011-08-30 00:16
Say him "If you use the 'Reply' button the user will/would know you replied to him/her ;)" :D
2011-08-30 00:19
I know he is already aware of it. Prefered a more 'humorous' approach this time ;)
2011-08-30 01:58
Yea I didn't remember which system, mixed it up with ESEA's # quote system
2011-08-30 06:19
If you were playing against mTw (with ave) you got more rounds but now you lost 2:16 and 7:16, It means everything. ave > ArcadioN > you ?
2011-08-30 00:31
What means everything? If you think so, sure, it's a matter of opinion.
2011-08-30 06:20
"It means everything"
2011-08-30 21:17
If lurppis said ave > ArcadioN and lurppis lost higher vs. ArcadioN then ArcadioN is still too good for lurppis
2011-08-31 16:36
Your logic doesn't make a whole lot of sense but yes, mTw is a better team than we are right now, that's just obvious.
2011-08-31 22:00
yeah I'm a little bit retarded :) I know that mTw is better than yours team, they are in top4 best in the world but you said ave > ArcadioN (as IGL) yea? When you were playing vs. old-mTw (I mean with ave) You gave them greater resistance than a recently game vs. mTw (with Friis), they crushed you, so in my opinion ArcadioN isn't that worse than ave as you think, he also has a lot of experience, especially from SoA, Gravitas(if I remember), Full-Gaming when they beat fnatic,mTw, It's just my opinion, btw. I'm not a hater or something like that, you are very good IGL, I know it's hard to lead the team ,calling strats and killing opponents at the same time :) You are definitely in top5 bests IGLs in the world :p
2011-08-31 22:31
yeah but scores don't really mean anything at all unless you know everything to it, for example if there are two huge events that big teams play at you can make conclusions out of it because both teams will be prepared, but for example for this match i saw mtw practicing last week while we took a week long break after e-stars that obviously didn't work out at all since we were really rusty and played bad ^^ i think arcadion is a good in-game leader, but i think ave might be the best in-game leader in cs' history so that's just my opinion
2011-08-31 22:37
Could you say me your top5 best IGLs right now? :P I'm really curious about your opinion. I know that ave is in your top1 :P What about the others? :P sry for my bad english :p
2011-08-31 22:42
Following your logic: Alliance is better than FX w/o Pasha?
2011-08-30 07:07
no, FX is at least one of top4 best teams in the world and if they lose with no-name team or 0-16 with M5 (semi-pro team) they just underestimated the enemy team
2011-08-30 11:57
You are just a little bit stupid or just trolling. :)
2011-08-30 12:40
2011-08-30 17:17

2011-08-30 00:49
