Wow. Thanks guys for making VulcLAN 2012 possibly one of the most fun events that I’ve had the pleasure to host. It was a great time, and thanks to the awesome sponsors, we gave out over $5,800 worth of prizes over the weekend. Amazing.
I’d like to offer up special thanks to Fujitsu for his mad organizational skills on the tournaments and for GuyOnABuffalo for all of his help setting up the match schedules.
Also, BoneRak and RoNiN once again brought servers and rocked our event with lag-free CoD4, MW3 and UT3 machines. It was awesome. Probably the most fun I had was with the some “Greed” mod on the CoD4 where we had 10v9 for some total mayhem. Shipment was just a little chaotic.
Samsung dropped a couple of 59″ TVs our way for the console tournaments and I’d like to thank Tigger for keeping things going (even though it got late) with the NFS:MW tournament. I’d also like to thank everyone for being flexible and understanding as we had to swap out NFS:Carbon for NFS:Most Wanted.
One of the highlights of the whole LAN for me was announcing the impromptu Jedi vs. Padawan (BoneRak & Nicao vs. Echo & Epithanatios). The wit and sarcasm of Fujitsu and MadScientist was pretty epic.
One of my most disturbing moments had to be when Ess chainsaw melee’d both Nicao and I in the Gears of War 3 tournament. I still feel a little whipped that I got sawed by a girl… heh Nicely done.
Thanks again to everyone – sponsors, staff, players, organizers for making this such a fun event to do every year. We already have some ideas for next year as we will be adding a RTS to the mix.
I’ve posted the pictures up over here and we’d love it if you’d leave some comments in the forum.
