    So yeah...

    Friday:

    Me and my classmates wake up at 5:00 AM, pack our suitcases and get off to the airport to get home to Denmark after a couple days in Milan. (Milano)
    At 2:00 PM I am home at my house, pack some things i sold on eBay, and then I'm off to my friend Stephan Noregaard (Nørregaard) to test a little.
    We don't get to play much, and i almost only play with my Eeveelution deck that I had just made. The G&G matchup seemed in my favor (but it wasn't after all), I didn't like the MagKiss matchup (Was OK though, lol), but i didn't expect it. (but it was there)
    At 9:30 PM I head home, do some stuff and go to bed.

    Saturday:

    Wake up late at 8:30 AM, do the usual morning stuff, pack my stuff and me and my bro are off to the venue. (my dad's driving)
    I'm playing Eeveelutions (see the list at the bottom of my post), and my bro is playing a simple made, but VEEERY consistent MagKiss, that he has played since he started playing the game again. (it was when STPs started, and he's 11 years old btw)

    I meet up with the usual people and we eventually get started.

    Round 1 vs. Jacob A w/ Empoleon/Omastar (he is not going to worlds so i can tell the deck)
    I am a bit scared about this little guy, he is not bad.
    He has a really bad start, while i get T3 Glaceon X. I give him an "egg". (danish expression. It means you draw 6 prizes while your opponent draws zero)

    1-0
    Mikael (My bro) 1-0

    Round 2 vs. icantremember w/ Empoleon DP (not MD) (he is not going to worlds so i can tell the deck)
    Leafeon = GG
    He does make it a game though.

    2-0
    Mikael 2-0

    Round 3 vs. Stephan N (friend) w/ i can't tell because he's going to worlds
    I T2 him with an Espeon (had Celio's so it could have been anything)

    3-0
    Mikael 3-0

    Round 4 vs. Patrick J w/ i can't tell because he's going to worlds
    I get a good start but run out of steam and lose

    3-1
    Mikael 4-0

    Round 5 vs. Sven S w/ GAG (G&G w/ Absol) (he is not going to worlds so i can tell the deck)
    I T2 his ralts and he sends up his Kirlia with and energy. Evovle to Gallade, uses Claydol, draw 2 cards, and OF COURSE gets the DRE he needs. I would sooo have taken over the game if he hadn't been soo lucky lol.
    I can't get my Night Ms (i have 2 in the deck, don't draw one in like 20-30 cards) and lose.

    3-2
    Mikael 4-1 (lost to the same Patrick as me)

    As you see I am very nervous now, but if i win i will have the most amazing tiebreak.

    Round 6 vs icantremember w/ Empoleon/something (he is not going to worlds so i can tell the deck)
    Leafeon = GG again

    4-2
    Mikael 5-1 (Yes, better then me, LOL)


    I'm in as 7th seed, having the best tiebreak of all

    Head home, do some stuff, go to bed



    Sunday:

    Wake up at 7:30 do the usual stuff, head to the venue.

    I'll play against someone I've never heard of.

    T16 vs. Andreas F w/ Empoleon MD/Claydol/Blastoise (he is not going to worlds so i can tell the deck)
    I come into this match seeing it as easy.
    Game 1: Start off strong, but again i can't draw my NMs an LOSE! :O
    The game took 40 mins, so there's not much time left.
    Game 2: I give him an "egg" in 10 mins, easy game.
    Game 2: I KO everything he's got.

    5-2
    Mikael loses to Andreas S who is the 2006 Champ. Oh well, still GJ

    T8 vs. Peter L w/ G&G Psy Shadow style w/ Cress X
    Game 1: I don't really get anything and lose.
    Game 2: I start off strong, and he gets an energy drought while i have everything and reduce his dmg with 40/20. I win.
    Game 3: Start off strong again, Leafeon does it's job again, time is called and it is 4-2 in prices. I win. We play it out and i win.

    6-2

    T4 vs. Andreas S (2006 champ and he beat my brother) w/ MagKiss (he is not going to worlds so i can tell the deck)
    Game 1: He has Togepi active and another one one the bench, uses FaF, tails. I T2 it. he has noting and i KO the other one.
    Game 2: He donks me. (revenge lol)
    Game 3: this game is really intense. I put pressure on him T2 with my Glaceon, T3 Glaceon X and he is stuck with nothing. Later he gets some scrambled and stuff, but it is too late and i have all the Glaceon I need to win.

    7-2

    T2 vs. Patrick J again w/ i can't tell because he's going to worlds
    Game 1: Don't get much, he wins.
    Game 2: i start off strong, but at a point i can't get the grass energy i need and it's downhill from there.

    7-3 :(

    Oh well, second place is still okay.
    I get my boosters (mentionable stuff was 2 Leafeon X) scholarship ($750) and the invite.
    Cool.

    Now, to the most exciting part, I FOUND SOMEONE TO TRAVEL WITH! :D
    Yay! I'm going to worlds!
    Can't wait to meet you all!

    but, but where is charizard *confused* :D

    The 'egg' is used in tennis too "love" scores of zero are an anglicisation of the french for "The Egg"

    What is this about TV cameras? Is the Danish nationals to be screened on TV??


    congrats on the invite. GL in Florida.

    2nd is the best place of the world, because when you're TheChampion you start becoming lazy and arrogant, while being 2nd gives you the force to keep fighting for the win!!!!

    Great Job!

    yep, Denmark is bad at Pokemon.....

    So bad that second place at Worlds was taken by a guy from... Denmark!!!!!



    already reported your post for flame.... let's see if moderator will do anything (don't think soo since Gym is used to anti-europe posts and even made moderator a person often bashing europe in the past).

    Don't forget the two bad SR players who got in through rankings (needed to T4) and the LCQ, and afterwards got 11th and 12th.

    Oh, and another MA Dane that T4'd at raknings, who also T16'd.

    Everyone calm down, DarthPika shouldn't have made the comment (or if it was sarcasm should have made it a little bit more obivous) but Gatsu saying the Mods are anti Europe won't help get your point across. Ardoptres took the time to right this report up and even share his list and you guys are going to get this locked by starting flaming wars. Everybody just needs to chill out.

    Anyway concrats and see you at Worlds.

    Where do people get the false assumption that eeveelutions is such a terrible deck. It has a lot of good matchups. I hope to see you at worlds.

    He's a rigth as he can be.. calm down.. eeveelutions is not a bad deck and quite a few decks get a breakdown agaisnt chilly breath, with some lucky matchups (or draws) making finals is not weird at all. this doesn't mean the players are bad... Remember sometimes good players kill off each other and kill off pokepowers is a potent strategy.
    Besides judging all Danish players from a single deck that made finals is kind of narrow minded

    "people allways beleives that own achievements are most important"
     
  20. Grats For 2nd Place
    Woot Eeveelutions Ftw!!! :):):):):)):
