We arrived at the hotel in Manila yesterday evening after a very pleasant flight. Most of you probably know already since so many tweeted about it but we got business class from Valve on our flights to Manila and we are very grateful for that. You can really feel the difference, we actually felt quite rested even after flying for 14 hours because of the business class, instead of just wanting to go to sleep straight away when we arrived.
Today was one of the media days so we have been taking pictures and recording some things for the player/team introductions. Other then that we have been playing some pubs and practiced against another team that isn’t in our group. Tomorrow is a day off so we will continue to play pubs and practice during the day.
Just got back from midnight snack so it’s time to sleep quite soon. Been a pleasure to meet all the fans here so far and the people working at the hotel are very friendly and polite. I also recognize quite many here that have been working with Valve events before so I’m happy to see that they make sure that this event runs smoothly after what happened at the last Major. Hopefully the stream and all that comes with it will work fine as well when the tournament starts with the group stage! 😀
