I'll keep this short. I want to thank everyone who was supporting me and cheering me on throughout this journey. There were many times where I didn't feel like prepping or just wanted to quit playing outright, not just in this tour but throughout my years of playing competitive, and your support has kept me going. This was a fairy tale run for me, from not having touched SS halfway through SPL and largely considering my days of serious tour play being over, to making it all the way here. Without this community, I could not have come this far.

I especially want to thank TPP. Without you, I would have certainly lost or dropped out of this tour long ago. From just bouncing ideas back and forth to cramming all my teambuilding and testing into all-nighters before game day, you have been a rock for me. Seriously, you are the most positive and supportive person I know, and I am lucky to call you my friend. Thank you.

Last, a few people had requested me to make a brief return to youtube, and I do enjoy breaking down the teams I used and analyzing the games I played. I'll start uploading analysis of my finals next week and go back a few rounds. Feel free to check it out if you're interested!

Great finals, really deserved from FV who had an amazing run in this tour and proved everyone that he's among the bests if he puts effort in it. Congratz to mncmt as well who surprised many of us by coming this far, and had a great run as well, with many tough opponents on the way. I'm excited to see him play in WCoP.

Congrats FV! I'm glad that the sleep I lost wasn't in vain. Really impressive run from mncmt as well. I hope you treat this as a start rather than a finish because you did really well and I personally enjoyed your matches. Finals being between two of the more offensive players was definetely a treat.

mncmt, good run bro. You have broken out as a strong OU player and I cannot wait to see more of your teams and play. Do not be discouraged by this loss; your peak is ahead of you. FV, great run and congrats on a well deserved individual trophy. I recorded the finals series and semifinals series if people care

Great run mence, unfort u couldnt bring it home but you had some well played games and the balls to bring innovative techs at such an important series so im only happy. well played games from FV as well, grats
 
I remember sitting in Skype at the end of the draft SPL season 6 or 7 in Wolfpack, and we had people saying lets save money for midseason, and Nails was saying but I promised one more person a spot. I said, a promise is a promise. We then drafted him.. I'm pretty sure with our last pick.

The legend known as FlamingVictini.. you've come a long way since then. Congratulations and well deserved.

grats flamingvictini for wining a tour where i recognise the name and also great job to mence and unlucky on your team choice i know how hard it can be selecting the wrong team accidentally or having immediate second-thoughts on choosing a team you bring to any game.
