Phwoar, its been a long time since the last update. Basically because I, along with the rest of the admins, have been busy doing the QGL Finals. To sum up, it went unbelievably well. It seems everyone had an awesome time, and mad props to all the gamers who put in the hard yards over the season and managed to take home the prizes. Big thanks to everyone that helped on the day.
There were a few minor problems – some on Saturday morning with the power, caused (as usual) by people plugging in their own power boards. The worst thing was on Saturday night when the security guard called me at 11:45pm and said we all had to get out of there by midnight. With 80 odd gamers in the hall, this was obviously a bit of a problem, made worse by an awesome headache. Fortunately, I was able to convince the security guard (a totally top bloke) after much wheeling and dealing that unless we could all stay, I’d have to drive everyone home myself. Which would have, needless to say, sucked.
Anyway, it all worked out, and it ended up awesome. Even madder props to the Max and j0r guys, who put on some tremendous displays of both ability and good sportsmanship, something that is a rare combination in the world of computer gaming.
