Huntington Beach 2010. Entourage finishes 5th in first Pro tournament

The prelims went well. We lost our first game to Blast but weren’t fazed by it because for some reason we seem to always struggle with our first game of the event. We quickly got back on track winning the next couple games we had early in the day. We ended up 5 wins, 2 losses and 1 flag pull which put us in to the Sunday Final round. On Sunday in the pro division, it’s top 8 and you play 7 games. You need to win 4 games typically to advance to the top 4. We won 3, lost 3 really close games all coming down to the last 30 seconds, and stale-mated 1. All-in-all we did pretty well for our first pro event only missing the Top 4 by 1 point!

Newport Entourage is steppin’ it up.  Watch us in Chicago.

Phoenix – Newport Entourage

The Phoenix Xball tournament was a great refresher for Entourage. We haven’t played Xball as a team for like three years and we added some new players for this season.Our goal was to learn from the experience and win the tournament.

We accomplished both goals. Our play was a little inconsistent as we tried to figure out how to make adjustments during the game. Xball punishes you if don’t recognize opportunities quickly, but hopefully you can fix the problems on the next point. The prelims went ok for us and we ended up not earning a bye on Sunday. Unfortunately I was injured Saturday and couldn’t play but I was ready for Sunday.

It seemed like having to play the extra quarterfinal game on Sunday helped most teams in the Semis. We had to play Elevation in the Quarters, SK Moscow in the Semis and then RNT AllStars in the finals. The finals were a tough match and we ended up winning the Phoenix event.

The 2010 Xball season will be a great experience for Entourage!
