Th0r's group started off with a huge, huge upset. Spawn from aT who came as a replacement for Shaggy ("Oh I didnt know it was on") beat th0r 2-0 and then beat zulg 2-1 earning himself a first place finish in the group. After that zulg lost to th0r (the man's aim was unbelievable at times). In the other group the Burnie was the man. As I mentioned before, the guy's aim is unbelievably solid. He beat everyone in straight games. Second place fell to Varagh who managed to take it at the cost of the high seeded stryfe.
The Quake 3 tournament is proceeding without any surprises whatsoever so basically we are waiting for the second group stage. There we'll see two of the giants facing each other for the better spot in the semi final. It has to be said, though, that Jay from the UK gave fooki a real scare on DM6, though. In the other group America is rampaging.
I gathered some PainKiller impressions from the pla
I have interviewed Cooller for ESReality Uncut 2, I think it turned out quite well. Straight after that we went to see the stage match between the US and France. Wheat and Geist were commentating it from right under the stage instead of from the booth this time. The show was quite nice I guess, just a shame that it's only two or three maps a game. One would wish for more Quake. After the pla
In the evening half of the people went playing poker and the other half just hung out in front of the hotel. Some drunk WC3 mTw guy came into socrates' room and pissed all over the bathroom floor and later made quite a mess of himself outside, puking about 2345256 times. Jay was very joyful about that. All the evenings are pretty much similar here. We hang out and talk, whoever gets to play the following day goes to sleep earlier and that's that.
At this point I have to apologise for the lack of interviews and journals from our VIPs but... The car accident thwarted our efforts a lot. zr0 left his notebook with if-22 in the hospital so the poor lad would not get bored so much. (Lemmy will be here at about noon on Thursday and he decided he would play with a broken finger.) Once we get the notebook back we should be getting good interviews and updates. The press area is completely closed for anyone else but the press and staff. We tried sneaking people in but they wouldn't let us. Moreover, the press area is closed very shortly after the evening stage game so it's hardly possible to do decent updates in the evening. The notebook will be a blessing. Expect a bigger ZeRo4 interview and a little bit more good stuff soon.
