munkka win Finnish DH qualifier

munkka have been crowned champions in Finland, following their victory over Playzone in the Finnish DreamHack Winter qualifier.

Playzone recently made headlines when it became known that Aleksi "allu" Rundberg had decided to end his links with the team in order to rejoin his old squad, munkka.

Mending their loss, the team summoned former 4Kings ace Matti "SPIKEONE" Järvinen to act as a temporarily stand-in.

munkka started out by entering the Losers' Bracket, following a 16-7 loss to ColdSchool, but the team had seemingly no problems when it came to making their way back up to the grand final.

Playzone managed to overcome digifest 2010 winners aNimus in their opening match, and finished off ColdSchool in their following encounter by stating a scoreline of 16-2.

Despite being powered by names such as Järvinen and Jirka "jigetus" Ryhti, Playzone witnessed an old-fashioned steamrolling, as their Finnish rivals sealed wins of 16-4 and 16-3 on de_inferno and de_tuscan, respectively.

DreamHack Winter 2010 Finland qualifier final standings:

1. Finland munkka - DH winter wild card
2. Finland Playzone
3. Finland ColdSchool
4. Finland aNimus

OMG , fail playzone , gj munkka

I'm not racist. I never said that. I have a black friend, and it's like "whatever" for me. I just said that when talking about women, it's not attractive for me. Is that a problem?

Not for me. And I'm not getting into this. Great that you have a black friend. But that remark was borderline racist. Some black female users might have felt disrespected. Skin color isn't like a hair color. Some people are really sensitive about it, and we all have to respect that.

I've never disrespected any one. I just said it's not attractive for me. That guy said: "aimb: thats why i always think every suomi girl or guy have the same face." _That_ is being racist. Because I can't choose my nacionality, and not even how I look like. But, wait! He's being racist with white people, so it's like "whatever" for everybody. I said I don't think black girls attractive, and I'm a monster. Hm, democracy is working very well in here.

Democracy? I think it was suppose to mean freedom of speach?! By the way if freedom of speach wasn't exerciced here your post would've been deleted. And I only said that users of this forum should be more gentle using it. That includes every user. Last thing, I never called anyone a "monster", and saying that some nationality has an ugly face is ignorant, but I don't remember any part of history where ugly people were used as free labour or denied basic human rights for centuries. That's why it is so important to remember historic context of the problem.

racism is belief in inherent superiority of a particular race. not just mentioning of racial differences. these differences are obvious. appearance of people from africa differs from it of european people. european girls are more attractive for me not because of my prejudices, but because of my physiology. and i'm not a racist because of that.

There is no natural imperative supporting that claim. I've never heard of such an empirical proof. There are studies that support the fact that men pick woman by the size of their brest and width of their hips. And some other variables. But I never heard that skin color is one of them.

That's another thing if they split up. I wouldn't call it only "fun" though if he plays for PG and travels for the game, it's his part-time job, so it should be taken seriously.

Well plaste makes so much money with poker so i dont think its his part-time job, but ofc he is taking it seriosly :)
