Kiev Day One

Honestly, they may as well have just put TSM straight through to the semi-finals. Their group stage was a joke. SK, no offence to them, haven't been playing well for a long time and their loss to TSM showed that but the other teams in the group - White Lotus and Curse (Who, along with SK, were invited to fill a gap left by another team who couldn't attend) were clearly outmatched by teams with so much LAN experience. Curse also didn't seem to be playing their "A-Team" and that might have had an impact on their play. White Lotus, though, played pretty good considering they're comparatively so inexperienced so kudos to them for turning up and doing their best.

Otherwise, I have to say, the first day was very boring. I don't think anyone is surprised by the results at all - looking at the teams playing tomorrow, I'm thinking there might be some surprises. Sypher have surprised me in the past and I've not seen aAa since Dreamhack but thinking back, they were a force to be reckoned with at the time so with any luck, they'll be at that point again tomorrow. We'll have to wait and see what happens.
