FORGOT MY ADAPTOR, so walked back to the hotel to get it because the stores at the venue were still closed and I wasn’t sure if they would have one. Horrible and tiring way to start the day.
Despite my lapse in memory, I quickly forgot about it as the teams started to trickle in. It was awesome to see some old friends and finally get to meet old friends that I never met in real life before. What really caught me off guard was how shy I suddenly felt when it came to meeting the teams I haven’t really had contact with before. “Shy” is usually the least likely adjective someone would use to describe me.
Apparently over 2 MILLION people watched the streams on Day 1. Look what message I got at one point! I was listening to the English stream because the commentary was in German on Day 1.
I was so excited about everything that I barely cared to eat much, even at the official opening party! Though, I can’t say it was the same for the gamers! Hehe.
It was quite a productive day and I even managed to sneak in two interviews, since there were not huge crowds obstructing me and had one over dinner. ^_^
