[LOTHAR] vs. [Team RvL.]

Our very first "international" CS 1.6 match was held yesterday on the 4th of September 2010! Well sort of anyway, because we played against Team RvL - a well known and established clan in their Singapore heartland!

Though the match had been planned in less than a week, both sides cooperated really well to bring their members together just in time for the impromptu match yesterday night! Less than RM1 of phone bills was wasted...well at least on my part :P

The 5v5 match took place in de_dust 2. Much excitement filled the atmosphere as both teams saddled up for the match! With Team RvL packing an awesome line up of players such as RvL NEMRAC, RvL xHaZeR, RvL Godlike, and so forth. While our very own line up consisted of...well... Just about EVERY Active Lotharian! But these were the few lucky victims who actually played the game xD :


Other Lotharians we're seen stalking the match room coming or staying in spectator mode which we're LeoN, ScreaM, and KobE all eager for a piece of action.

Eventually after many technical delays the match kick started with an alley knife match, where a hilarious blood bath ensued, after which, Lothar fell prey to RvL's stabs and pokes (I think first blood was me? xD) Thus, it was decided that Lothar played as CT and Rvl as T respectively.

Later on, Lothar fought RvL with round after round of various tactical and position changes. Not surprisingly, RvL countered almost all of our plans and strategies with their own. Eventually we kept finding ourselves in the midst of having to fight them off with 3 continuos eco-rounds in order to stand a chance at hitting a single enemy! Unfortunately for us, RvL proved to be the better clan, and the match resulted in a landslide victory for Team RvL! 16-0 woots!

This match with RvL has thought my clan some new tricks as well as how to improve on old ones, and as they say, the best lessons are often learned the hard way. Thus I am grateful towards xHaZeR and his team of respectable sportsmen for sharing their skill with us Lotharians, in the way that would best teach us - by pawning us! xD

As the Lotharian in-game commander, I couldn't be happier with the whole process of training with my team and preparing for the match, though not the outcome of it. It is often said that the tourney we travel is more fruitful than the destination itself. After the match, I feel ever more confident to take on the next big challenge!

So, who's with me!? xD

More links!

Here are some links to the few pro-gamer websites I know of. Putting them under our current blog list would seem to place them in the same category as GG clans, (which of course they are not!) thus I have decided to put the links only in this post for the time being.

I would very much like to add Team Old School to the list, but there are few clues as to their official website. Correct me if I am wrong, but rumors say Team Old School only formed for the purpose of WCG and disbanded after that. However here is the link that contains their final showdown with Team [Lz] at the 2010 WCG Malaysia.

These links will give you an insight into the current Malaysian CS 1.6 gaming scene.

As for you Garenians who are unfamiliar with the names...
well it just proves how small your world really is =)

After YEARS of suffering in the lawless Garena CS rooms, it is time for [LOTHAR] to ascend to the realm of Steam!

No doubt the level of game play and sportsmanship in steam will take some time for us humble Garenians to adapt to, but it is still better than staying in Garena to be called "confirmed hackers" everyday.

As I discovered, playing on steam is as simple as installing the NonSteam Halflife pack and searching for Malaysian dedicated servers. I have already made a link at the top right corner of the page. Click it to download the NonSteam installation pack (300MB) which I gotten from the Prestige server admin himself. Megaupload link is courtesy of [LOTHAR]LeoN.

As a kick start to our adventure in steam, I have accepted a challenge by RVL clan probably this coming saturday. Match will take place in none other than Prestige server using standard CAL rules. Excact time and date might be subject to availability of both sides players.
Current line up from [LOTHAR]:
