Doh... we lost against M19. We put up a good game, though. Even as we had to throw in a 'mixed' team at last second, everyone played well. gg's. Now free time in Riga before leaving on Tuesday ;)

We're soonish starting our next game against M19 (in losers bracket), which will obviously become a tight match. The loser goes home, winner proceeds.

Whoa. Finally got WLAN access, so can surf and update things.
I forgot to mention that every female worker here seems to have a maximum standard length for skirts (10 cm?), and they all look like porn stars. Hmm..
We lost our first game, was a tough one. It's a double elimination bracket, so we're still up for the main game.
Yesterday we won 4 (or 5?) games. Didn't get easy net access so I didn't gather the scores, have to find them from somewhere.
We won at least against oracle, 101, disco.net, virtus.pro (seeded).
We lost against Pentagram 2S.
We're now again playing against disco.net, which was yesterday's toughest game for us, I believe.
The tournament is well organized.
Positive: Lots of workers, things get sorted out.
Negative: lots of noise in the gaming area: some teams get a huge benefit from being able to play next to people who don't make noise, as opposed to our last game against Pentagram 2S we were surrounded by VERY LOUD teams and we couldn't hear our own team talk. Very bad. In addition to that, we even had a referee which seemed to pick on our team talk, meaning that if we accidentally said something after death - something completely irrelevant stuff regarding the game, not effecting the outcome that is - he tapped on the shoulders and said to be silent. This obviously had effect to our team, which didn't communicate loud to begin with.
Even as I pointed out the team talk issue, the tournament is very good, and the guys who work here seem to try to do their best.

Everything's going smoothly, even as we had problems crossing the border, as Danziger's passport is set to expire in 2 months.
First game played, against oracle. We won comfortably.

There's one team from Sri Lanka, which is cool.
In addition to our team, D-Skyline is also participating from Finland.
