Frosty will be here soon, everyone!

Hey everyone, how's it going? This is Frosty reporting from Darkest Hour.

How is DH practicing and what are you telling your team to keep them positive since you're facing Str8 Rippin (the vegas champs)?
Frosty (4:22 PM)
We started practicing really strong, and we've been working on all the things we need to work on to beat Str8. You can't beat them unless you're on your game. We're keeping a positive mindset, knowing that any team is beatable.

How do you guys think will mesh up against str8 rippin in round 1.
Frosty (4:23 PM)
We'll match up better than a lot of people expect us to. The teams that give them trouble are ones that haven't been together for a while. My teammate Frywod will be the key...if he plays up to his potential and keeps his communication up, i think we'll win.

Hey I was wondering how did you get discovered and why are you so good?
Frosty (4:24 PM)
Back in '05, one of my friends told me about a local tournament in LA, which turned out to be MLG. I don't think I was ever really discovered, it was just through my 2006 FFA. I team with PSK, and that's where things took off for me in 4v4, in Dallas '07.
What does Gregor bring to your team?
Frosty (4:25 PM)
He brings a lot of positive energy and communication. With him, we just have a good attitude. He never lets us get down.
Where did you come up with the name Frosty? Do you think your team is up to standards with the previous Darkest Hour, now that you no longer have AoW or CMG? If this roster doesn't work out, who would you reasonably like to pick up? (I know you'll want to defend your current roster, but are there players that you believe would be a great fit to your team, and have wanted to team with?)
Frosty (4:27 PM)
I came up with the name from a game called NBA Showtime on Dreamcast, where I picked my nickname. I think our team is leaps and bounds better than the previous Darkest Hour, due to the fact that dropping ArtofWar and picking up ANYBODY would help. I'm not really hoping that the roster doesn't work out. Reasonably, I'd like to pick up StraightSick, me and Frywod's old teammate from last year, if things don't work out.
Frosty (4:27 PM)
Hopefully we'll prove ourselves a lot of people in this tournament. Str8 will have the hardest first round they've ever had in this event.
