mTw in Finland - Extreme Masters kicking off
(Uli) After the thrilling start at the Intel Friday Night Game in Hamburg, the 160.000 Euro tournament, the Extreme Masters, is lifting off and Europes best CS teams are fighting for a spot at the finals. Tonight at 19 CET we will witness http://static1.giga.de/media/news/1119893369news.jpg hoorai vs http://static1.giga.de/media/news/1118316178news.jpg mTw.
hoorai are definitely one of the shooting stars in the current CS community. Attending WSVG London and finishing second and reaching a third place at the World Cyber Games last week, the five Fins are without a doubt among the current top teams.
mTw on the other hand are struggling, the failure to qualify for the WSVG finals and some devestating losses in the ESL Pro Series are surely not a good starting point for this new tournament.
Accordingly disillusioned sounds Tim ‘mTw|silver’ Hochgrebe:
” We are not expecting a lot really, we are focusing on the German ESL Pro Series Season IX and I think Hoorai is way too good for us at the moment. We just hope to put up a good fight against them”
Tomi ‘hoorai|lurppis’ Kovanen on the other hand is very confident:
“I think we should be able to win the match even though they have a couple of players who can turn around a match by themselves. We’ll probably also run into some ping problems seeing as we’re Finnish and they’re German, but I hope it’ll be a good match anyway.”
