Blog: Au Revoir from Rinoa

Well I'm finally back home from Paris, just woke up from a nice 10 hour sleep! Normally I feel all emo and depressed when I come back from an event but it wasn't so bad this time because our flight had 11 people sitting together (Me, Kristina, Caryl, EG counterstrike, EG.Whisper, EG manager Alex Garfield and the EG coverage guy Brian Dunn). That and my teammate Caryl is still at my house!

Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and 30 minutes but it was actually pretty fun...ended up playing a drinking game at the airport after the CS guys bought some Grey Goose! :X

A view from the plane

Anyway, let me start with arriving. Caryl came to my house a couple of days before Paris so she could spend some extra time with me and Kristina (Caryl is PMS.Aeris and Kristina is PMS.Korini). We did a LOT of shopping and spent so much money on clothes for Paris! We arrived in Paris on July 3rd in the morning so we had 2 days to relax and go around before the competition. After getting lost in the airport and taking 30 mins to figure out how to get a taxi we finally got to our hotel! It was so nice meeting Tammy and Cynnie (PMS.furryfish and PMS.w4nderz)

We had no idea how to find our teammates or anyone from PMS because we didn't know their hotel room #'s and we couldn't call anyone either. By pure luck we found Athena (PMS owner) outside on a smoke break and she led us to everyone else.

PMS.w4nderz and PMS.furryfish --- my singapore sweethearts =D

We had such a problem doing anything at Paris because people barely speak English. For the most part at restaraunts we would just point at something on the menu and pray it wasn't bad! Instead of trying to talk we used a lot of broken and retarded sign language? which was pretty funny XD!

Although our dinner on saturday night was really nice. We went to a restaraunt called Chai 33 in Bercy village with Hanni, Levent and Fear. The menu was all in French but thanks to Kristina taking French in highschool for 6 years, she could translate the menu for us. The way Fear ordered his meal was priceless "Uh I'll get the duck, pasta and chocolate."

PMS DotA ready to play! from close to far --- Korini, Rinoa, Aeris, w4nderz, furryfish

On Friday morning we all went off to the event for registration, ran into TeG in line and they all came and said hello to me :). Saturday was when the competition started, the group stage --- and it was crazy! We were stuck there playing for like over 5 hours because at first it took like 1 hour before people even started the matches. We took forever getting our headsets to work right with ventrilo and what not.

Our match against SGC was pretty good, for being SGC I expected them to slaughter us but I think we were decent considering we're pretty much a new team with close to no practice due to the time difference/lag issue. You could tell we had minimal practice because our execution and everything was so sloppy since our teamwork was still so new.

Playing against TeG was sooooooo fail, we got outpicked so HARD! The broodmother and Chen made us all QQ and it was a fast game. They could just push easily and we could't do anything about it. TeG performed really well, and their second place finish is impressive.

Me and Cynnie =)

Meeting everyone was kind of disappointing. The guys from SK were really nice so I was happy because I didn't meet them before, otherwise we mostly just talked to EG and MYM who we've already met. I kind of wished the other teams that we see online all the time like SGC and +46 would talk more but they mostly stuck to themselves.

PMS DotA at Paris --- w4nderz, Korini, Aeris, Rinoa and furryfish

At least it was nice seeing other people! I enjoyed hanging around Rotterdam, Grubby, Cassandra, Noname and many others who were really sweet! Unfortunately I didn't get to meet fnatic.Archi...but that's mostly because I'm a wimp :3

So just like Chicago, there was a drinking get together on the last night in a hotel. Unfortunately, I seperated from my teammates to hang out with the other PMS girls and other people in my hotel. According to my teammates --- the DotA drinking gathering involved Levent being retardedly drunk and hitting on cynnie and tammy, pusher-street going on top of levent and wrestling him, fear locking himself in the bathroom and people drawing penises on pusher-street and EG.Whisper's leg.

Sadly, our flight back home was pretty early on the 7th. The flight was an hour longer, but I can't say that it bothered me ;)

Well that's it! Au revoir France and everyone who was there! Here's some extra pictures:

Nice blog.. See you in San Jose in August! ^^

I think it was mostly personal preference with whom to meet with. For example, my interest was to meet TeG and Mr. Darka, which also happened ;-)
If you want to speak with someone you have to go after them like Bogdan or SilentCat did and not sit on your ass and then write a statement like :"... but they mostly stuck to themselves." ;-)

anyway , nice blog

regarding levent looking so german, he really looks more turkish or at least generally more as someome from a southern part of europe than as someone who you might think of as typical german. that being said, the picture of the typical german person below a certain age is changing anyway, considering the fact that 1/4 - 1/3 of all german persons below the age of 30 have a migration background. so the tendency might be a bit like the american melting pot in a few years, certain 'types' might still be predominant, but all in all there is going to be more diversity and it should be harder to tell how a typical german actually looks like. so somehow its right to a degree again that levent is looking quite german as well.

Good blog! :) Was a nice event. True what darka said, many french people were there so we didn't get to spend more time with other teams out there, since french quallies was also underway and we didnt have much time. :/ But anyway we still managed to chat a few with everyone out there, props to SGC & TeG who we spent most time with, they're really great guys! Especially Bird from TeG who was screaming most of the time and saying something like murci muti or something rofl, and ofc snake as their best support. :) Was cheering for you all the way, too bad you didn't win it in the end, you would've deserved it the most. Also hit0mi is a cool guy and i was quiet surprised to hear fear was picking for MYM, he's a good guy to chat with too.
