Today we got positive and negative aspect in our news. At first the negative part:
Tengri decided to leave our team. After a short performance overview on Monday, we decided that two of our members have to improve their skilllevel, one of them was Tengri. According to his reaction you could imagine that he'll leave us soon, but I expected him to stay until the short termed matches are done. Unfortnunately we got instantly deleted from the friendlist, so we no longer expect any perfomance of Tengri. I can understand his decision to leave the team, but I'm totally against the way he did.
We''ll start the search for a new player and hope to find a long-term member. Until that is done we'll try to survive through the planned matches with some standins.
The positiv part!
The first round of Starladder Amatuer Series VI is finished and we're (thanks to our standins xKm- and Tanne-) the undefeated winner of our group. The next round isn't announced yet, but we expect it to be on Sunday.
I'll start the search for an amateur-team at the same time we search for a new member and not as announced in the news from 08.05.2013.
After our streak of 6 wins, we had to face our next opponent, iCCup! The name sounded familiar to us... too familiar. While researching the team we found out why we knew the name: iCCup belongs to the professional DotA2 teams and even has the opportunity to win the qualification of the International 3 and participate in the tournament. (worlds biggest DotA2 tournament with prices over a million $)
As expected they showed us our place in the match, but we still felt victorious, because we were allowed to face one of the top DotA2 teams.
Despite of the loss, our DotA2 team advanced to the ESL-Premier League and reached the highest ESL-league possible. I want to thank 3D-Gaming in the name of the DotA2 team for the support. Without you we wouldn't have been able to advance.
In addition to the gaming news, there are some changes in the team itself. We decided to improve our training and changed our appointments from Wednesday 19-21:30 and Sunday 15-21:30 to:
With this change we can expand our training duration by 2 hours and increase the regularity. Additionally to our training appointments, we'll participate in several leagues and cups.
Also we had to seperate us from our former teammember Freez, because of different reasons. I whish Freez much luck and success in his future carrier.
With that decision the slot of our stand-in is free again, but we already negotiated with a former teammember, who had to quit out of a lack of time.
What are our plans for the future?
We signed in for Starladder, which is the biggest DotA2-league, so we'll focus on this event most. The qualification begins on May 12 and we hope for much mental support through our stream!
For the ESL we decided to stay in the Premier-League and improve our ranking.
Starting in June I'll start to search for an amateur-DotA2-team. Everyone who is interested in joining this team or who knows someone who could be interested in joining can conact me in the forum our with a message on our homepage. I'll answer your request as soon as possible.
Following things are needed for the amateur-team:
- activity and periodic training
- monthly meeting of the captain with me and eventually the admins
- a fitting level of manners, some flaming is allowed (since everyone does it in DotA2), but there shouldn't appear complains about single teammembers!
- fun and the wish to improve in DotA2
- if a certain skilllevel is reached, the ability to help out the professional team (not needed but nice to have )
What do I offer?
- a nice clan-atmosphere with many different games
- a raidcall group with own channels
- a cooperative professional-team when it comes to question and public-games
- every advantage you get through the clan 3D-Gaming (detail in a personal talk)
I wish everyone who read the text-wall to the end a lot of fun while playing! (of course the rest too )
Edit: The Starladder qualification got postponed to the 15.05.
Today on the 29th of April we can finally announce the Change of our Counter-Strike Source Team to Counter-Strike Global Offensive. After resisting "the Death of CSS" for a long Time we have finally arrived at that Point where all of the good and active Leagues have come to an End and no more good Tournaments are being sponsored.
This said we hereby announce that we will continue to work with our former CS:S Team instead of getting a new and already trained CS:GO Team. The starting Time might be hard but because of a very good Time with them until now we will continue to back them up further on.
This is what the Team said:
Today we want to announce some Changes in our Counter-Strike Source Team. After a quite succesfull GSH Lan Event we will now finally change to the current and active Counter-Strike Game named Global Offensive.
Already before attending the GSH Event we knew that we would change to CS:GO. But now the Moment has arrived where we have to say Goodbye to the Game we played for so long and we spend our Youth with. There are many Reasons for this including active Leagues, Tournaments with higher Prices and better/more overall Matchcoverage.
We will continue to play for 3D-Gaming because we had a very good Time until now and we don't want this to change. Thanks to the Clan for always believing in us, we could always count on you and we are proud to wear the Name and the Shirts of 3D-Gaming.
Sadly Don Kamilo will leave our Roster because he still wants to continue playing CS:S instead of switching over to the new CS:GO. Luckily with "ProfEssaH" we already have a Replacement for the Squad.
I present the first news of the new DotA 2-team. Our search for a standin ended with the acceptance of Tengri and not a second too late. Our position 5 player Freez had to skip training sessions because of time pressure and declared himself to the reserve just a day after we found Tengri.
For this reason Tengri was promoted to a full teammember and has proven his worth as a successor.
The first weeks in the clan 3D-Gaming were rather calm when it comes to the DotA team. We had to adjust us to the atmosphere of the clan and we had to find ourselves as a team to be able to face new challenges. The result was shown this sunday! We participated in our first 4players cup and lost right in the first real round. Our opponent belongs to the best 5 teams in the ESL Premier League, so the desperation wasn't that big.
To avoid a start in the new week with just a loss, we decided to play an ESL match afterwards and got our first competetive win with the new team.
In addition we made it to the ESL Main Divison and can now prove ourselves. At all events, there will be more exciting games and everyone can support us by watching the stream.
3D-Gaming was founded in 2002 by Mackknife and sn00p1.
It all started as a fun bunch of friends who was really passionate and enjoying
"Counter-Strike 1.6" and decided to enter "eSports" and gradually developed into an organisation
to cater for professional and amateur teams.
