Match day. 8am. Our team of fearsome warriors managed to come together using every means of transportation imaginable. Incredibly, everybody was on time but we were not without casualties: two of our finest players were unable to make it. Nor were we all fit for duty, a few having woken up at 4am and driven all the way from Krasnodar for the event. Our spirits were once again lowered when we saw our first match was to be none other than Rusich, our main rival and a team with a tough reputation.

With this lingering negativity we hastily gathered our equipment and began the first game. We began by losing the first two rounds but managed to pull ourselves together and claw back to a 2-2 draw, showing the progress in experience the team has made over the last year. In the fifth and final round the disruption of our formation began to show and we ended the game with a close 2-3 loss.

Seething with frustration we decided to change our formation with a focus on the lower flank for the next game against Skif. This tactic proved fruitful and we pulled off an easy 4-2 win.

We further perfected the tactic in the final game of the group stages and beat Absinthe 4-0.

In the semi-final we were put up against the unbeaten team ZLO, a strong team using experienced mercenairies. We lost the first two games but once again managed to pull back to a 2-2 draw and using the momentum, and by changing our focus on shooting straight from the banner we secured our entry into the final!

Final: B.O.L.T vs Rusich

Having lost the fist game against this team we were all the more determined to take first place in the tournament. Our opponent was certain to have a trick up its sleeve and it was clear they had changed their tactics and once again we were 2-0 down. We decided to use our strategy of shooting early form the banner, one that proved successful against ZLO. Clawing our way back and using more than our fair share of ammunition we managed to secure a 2-2 draw when the time ran out. In overtime we were dead tired having played the entire tournament with only 5 players! In the final game we were left after 30 seconds with only 1 player against their 4. A twist of fate proved the Gods were favouring us that day. One of the opponent players placed a hand on his head as a sign of being out of the game, and suddenly shot our final player in point-blank range. After much discussion the referees gave us a technical victory: we were Pro-Shar champions!

The second stage of the Cup of Russia in the SFD and the NCFD in Rostov-on-Don – by Team B.O.L.T.

“At the entrance to the venue of the tournament, we felt the excitement.

Already at the entrance to the Rostov city I felt the energy. In the first stage in Pyatigorsk we offensively lost one game and ended up third. But we knew that, thanks to persistent trainings, we are in great shape and can show a much better game and avoid repeating mistakes.

In our division we were first to play, and unfortunately, did not have time to explore the field. The first game showed that knowledge of the area gives a great advantage. Each point for us ended up with a low wing found himself naked, and we could not turn the game around.

In the break between the first and the second game was a technical pause when we have the opportunity to disassemble the playground. After that, things went smoothly.

The second game, B.O.L.T. vs Absinthe, ended 3-0 in our favor.

After winning the second game, and having regained confidence, we began to experiment. We changed the flanks, attacked aggressively, played through the center and eventually advanced to the semifinals with a first place in the group.  In the semifinals, we met with the team which in the previous step for us was fatal. Banda team was one of the most experienced teams in this stage. But we do know that our goal is victory, and in the end, showing the aggressive play were able to reach the final. 3:1 The gang was moving on.

In the final, we met with a young team of Krasnodar – Stalker. The guys fought with dignity, but we were better prepared. 2:1 and the Goblet of this step we have taken to Krasnodar.”

With this victory, we came in first place overall in its division.
