ggs to everyone, im truly happy that France got this far, next time is definitely ours.
italy was just too good for us, i still think we could have shown more aggressive stuff in this kind of metagame.
gl to everyone!
ggs Italy, props in particular to the builders of the team who outdid us on multiple occasions. When things get heated during a series I usually apologize at the end but I don't think it's warranted in this case. If "trolling" and overall being a dick makes this game more enjoyable for you then by all means feel free to keep going but don't expect me or anyone else to sit back and take it.
Before anything else, I want to thank the entire french community for the support we received over the past few weeks. The trust that so many of you demonstrated throughout this tournament truly made this a great experience, no matter how frustrating these semis turned out to be.
I have no clue what the future holds for Team France but this probably needs to be said regardless: to me taking over the team was never some quest to "fix the problems" of the past team in any way. While I do think we can be proud of what we accomplished this year, I don't necessarily buy into the theories that the atmosphere was "healthier" or that I was the "proper leader the team needed". Each wcop is different from the last and none of these comparisons align with my experience on the team over the past 2 years.
To my teammates: I'm sorry for performing so poorly. I failed to match the expectations I set for myself for the first time in a while and not being able to bring the wins the team needed as the captain was nothing short of painful at times. For some reason I still haven't figured out, I just don't understand this metagame as it stands (and that definitely is on me, @OU council please do ban cinderace tho lol). I will post in depth shoutouts on the server but thank to every one of you for working hard, we had a lot of great moments that I hope made this experience worth the time spent for all of you.
