The 12 Oct 07
*|DTF|* had 3th Nordicus Cup 5 match against =507= and we lost 0-4 (3-4,2-5 : 3-4,2-5)
The game was played as a 4 vs 4 with good spirit. Team survial mode
1st round we had the pleasure to meet Circle of Elders (Coe) which we lost against.
2nd round we played DADD our mighty friends, which we won against.
3th round we had a "sit over" round.
4th round it was the time for the Norwegians =507= ......
Our broders from the north =507= was a total new clan for us so we had no idea how they play, so We were more or less like,
"Well lets see and hope for some good games!" We could tho see on the results from other matches that it might be a close match.
It started really bad for this match, I was out travelling due to job, Kanto has been busy as hell, Fizban was on a Military event,
and on top of it Phoebus went down with sinusitis and 38,5 in fever.
So we did not get any pre-practice for this match, and that could really bee seen on our play and the chat on TS
just before and during the match.
We where way off standards
Okay start of the game, we found the brothers from the north on their brand new server,
and after a few "fun game" rounds we started out.
First map and choice of =507=. Well we don't really like this map due to our bad tactics on it ! Its more a "fun game" map
for us, so we had like last minute "tactic" decision in the count down.
First round was most just "lets see what happens" and then we plan something in next round.
The game actually got a bit tight I would say, 1-1 after first two and then a couple of maps which was tuff and bloody and
several of them with 2vs1 in the end, but =507= showed them to have the best tactic/skills and pulled the match
home to their advantage. It ended with a 4-3 to them and a general good start of the match !
Swap of spawns and again tight maps, but =507= really had the best going and pulled it home 5-2.
We sad there in the map change and small talked on TS and well we didn't really feel we played well, a bit to much panic
and missing tactics. Buts still there was some hope..............
Island Estate 3:
DTF choice of map.. Well choice was made on pure lack of training before match, we had to choose the safe map....eg the map
we played most and have good experience on.
We quick pulled a few tactic moves at start 1-1-2 teams. 2 up and 1-1 down, spawn in pool area.
We quick ran into a hell of frags downstairs and a hard start, these Northern guys really through all they had of frags
against us, phyyy specially Kanto and I could smell our burned ass-hairs.
But we took first round !
Then I don't know what happened but we simply could not find a way around =507= and we lost the next 4 rounds
OMG I just say..and we took the last two, so result was 4-3 to the cold northern Vikings.
Spawn change.. quick tactics from old days came out, but the TS communication was more or less "overheard",
and TK's was "in-coming".
But never than less we had a 3-2 situation and tension was high, but =507= pulled it home in the end and we where beaten....
Again ! but whats new in this
Okay We didn't get spanked !.....
but we lost in a fair and square match to a better team, so it was ! No denies.
We could maybe with some training in advanced make life tougher for =507=, but that's just pure guessing.
We found playing with =507= nice and in a good atmosphere, so some us stayed on the server and played a bit fun games
with the guys !
Good match and good hosting from =507= (server had its moments with a bit higher pings, but okay)
And now to the stats..............
More info can be found here: Nordicus Cup 5
