17. (SOUNDBITE)(English) FNATIC PLAYER DONOVAN 'TEKKZ' HUNT SAYING:

"My first day was...it was different, I started off bad, I lost my first game, Tom (teammate) won his first game and then 2v2 we played bad but we won, and then I played again but I won. Tom is just killing everyone, Tom is the best PlayStation player in the world, I did an interview earlier and I said Damien is, Tom is, Tom is the best PlayStation player in the world, and 2v2 we just kept winning and, yeah, it's been a good day other than the one loss we had so I'm feeling good but in eNations, where me and Tom played for England, we did the exact same thing but then just lost in a random knockout game so hopefully that doesn't happen this time, but I think we're through the groups and we'll see what happens Saturday and Sunday."
