GitHub – "We had an amazing time. We came into the tournament with low expectations, we were even planning a pool party for 1pm! After our first game, we felt unstoppable despite the fierce competition, we played great together as a team and everyone genuinely had a super fun time! Thanks for organizing, we can’t wait to come back next year to defend our title!"
