I'm back home from Netherlands for few days now. All is back to normal. As soon as I unpacked I went to play for a bit. Next day we (
Virtus.pro ladies) participated in Sennheiser Female CSGO tournament.
I was pretty nervous before start, not because I was afraid of opponents or something similar, but because I knew I didn't practice enough.
Even though within team we didn't have high expectations due to all vacations..., but still, whenever I represent my team I like to be fully prepared, no excuses...
Anyhow, Our first draw was versus team
iNfernity ladies *Spire, we played on de_dust2_se map. Due to lost knife round we had to start as CT. We lost first 3 rounds and you could notice some worried voices in teamspeak, but that soon changed, after the lost first 3 rounds we started gaining some too, we actually gained 7 rounds in row. However, opponents played well too and made equal to 7-7 and first half ended up 8-7 in favor of
Virtus.pro ladies. First half was very close match, both teams played well. I think we could have wonn first half with 3 difference in score for us, if I wouldn't have failed in 2 rounds, but I learned my lesson, so I shall not make the same mistakes again -.-
Virtus.pro ladies didn't lose any round at all, so match ended up 16-7. GG to iNfernity ladies *Spire, they fought well.
2nd match we had to play versus
Zuckerfeen on map de_train_se, we lost knife round so we had to start as T. We started pretty good, won 4 rounds in row until Zuckerfeen started winning rounds. They won 5 rounds in row, and then we won 1 round again, but after that we didn't win any rounds. So first half ended up 5-10 in favor of Zuckerfeen. In second half we continued to struggle to keep up with Zuckerfeen, they played well. Unfortunately we couldn't counter-attack so we only won 3 rounds as CT, which means they won 8-16. No free tickets for Copenhagen Games Lan or Sennheiser headsets PC350 SE for us...
In overall I think we did more then good, we didn't practice dust2 nor train map yet. We have lots to show in future, you just gotta give us some time
The winner of tournament is team
n!faculty, 2nd placed
O+ and 3rd place
Zuckerfeen. All three teams played really well, so they completely deserved their final place. Final game was really entertaining to watch and I am sure there will be more of those in future, female CSGO community is getting busier and busier!
Virtus.pro ladies started playing in SLTV PROSERIES, where we play against male teams. We were very unfortunate in first match versus
NEW_A on map de_mirage_go. One of the players had network problems, so she couldn't connect at first. Once we finally started, we played pretty good first half and won it 8-7. 2nd half was full of server lag spikes and losing rounds.
NEW_A team performed way better than we did on CT side, we didn't found a hole in their defense and lost every round in 2nd half, final result 8-16.
2nd match in SLTV PROSERIES went even worse,
RUSH3D team was just to good for us. At some point I had feeling some of us gave up, which is something I dislike big time. I hope we all got lesson from it, and next time we encounter such a strong team we at least get few rounds instead of zero. Well deserved victory with 0-16 for
And that has been all the happening since the day I came back from my vacation. Busy with tournament / league matches, team / individual practices, which aren't fully on schedule yet, but next week that should change!!!
Thank you all, who gave us supportive words before the past matches we had!!! <3
