Afterwards, we went to check out what the venue looked like. The tournaments are played in different buildings, there is a separate area for WC3, one for CS and CS.fe, one for PES and one for the remaining FPS games. We caught up with the Americans and went wandering about the vicinity. Along the way we found Sujoy and Daishi who joined me, raccoon and lexx in our trip to the press room.

We're gonna own Ligarena hard. So, until tomorrow I guess - I'll go to the hotel room and eat the Haribo jellies GitzZz brought me and after that I'll try to chill out with someone for a while I guess. Tomorrow's gonna be a big day.
