The stadium team championship, the last tournament in 2012, is already finished. We took part with two teams this time. Team 1 had to face hpd, avenue, FoW, iGn and Win.Rar#. Unfortunatly, team 2 had no luck with the group drawing. In division 5, they had to compete against BX3, GL, vXa, Saw. and WTF?. So we knew, it will be very hard to reach the playoffs with team 2. In the end, we finished 4th in groupstage but they showed a good performance in many matches, especially against BX3.
However, team 1 managed to go through the groupstage at position 1 easily : defwin, 21-4, 21-5, 21-9, 21-0 in groupstage. Due to the fact that acer finished 2nd in their group, the opponent in the next round was acer, one of the best teams at the moment. We knew, we had to train much more against such a great team to be able to resist against them. In fact, it was a really exciting!
First map: STC9/NC8 Meecrob.
Both teams were well prepared for this match. Robin, Oli, fegir, azina and kulvis against frostbeule, g00x, shief, Sani0 and PokeR. The match was pretty balanced. Though, acer was leading 6-4 after 11 rounds. But with great runs and an impressive performance we won the next 2 rounds → 6-6 on the first map against acer, what a pressure now for our drivers! Unfortunatly, we lost the next lap and therefore the first map. However, it was pretty close and 2 more maps left to win against acer! Worth mentioning: frostbeule was insane on the first map. 111 out of 140 points and 30 points ahead all other drivers.
Second map: STC9/NC8 Rebujito
No more excuses, we mustn´t lose this map! This time Oli, robin, vtr, icey and knight battled with frostbeule, g00x, poker, JWH and B3pp0'. After 3 rounds the score was 3-0 for dacSP, a pretty nice start on the second map. But acer was able to comeback and take the lead with 4-3 after 8 rounds. We needed a good round now to calm down and don´t get too nervous. Fortunatly, we won the next round: 4-4. Acer took the lead again with 5-4 and we countered, 5-5. The next rounds will decide wether there will be a decider map or not. The next two rounds were pretty close 29-26 and 28-27. Unfortunatly, both rounds were won by acer.
All in all, it was a very nice, close and exciting match. You can check out the whole match on youtube. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuUwL8vLOLk )
