Well, I hope you're right! If fx show improvement, they'll be very hard to beat though. Playzone.fi have done it great lately, and we can never underestimate Swedes. Will be a nice tournament:)

i really dont see how you can say FX wont do well because its BYOC. I would assume since they are 'professional's they would at least have a computer made after 2005. Anything made after this should be able to max out 1.6 and level the playing field. BYOC LAN is probably the only competition where you cannot blame the hardware.

You didn't understand his comment, he was joking, saying the 'team' 'BYOC' will beat Fx, when the 'BYOC' team has not yet been decided.

2010-03-26 17:26
If FX won't win this tournament they should replace someone. They were choosing between pasha and DRIVE and finally they chosen pasha.
