Respawn LAN v18 winners!

Thanks for everyone who helped stick around for packup which was longer than usual. Those who enjoy our company should stick around next time to help us - remember, many hands make light work!

A big thanks to our sponsors - we're very greaeful for the continued support they provide. A big shout to Victoria University, SteelSeries, Fractal Designs, Atomic MPC, Tt eSports, WildWire, The Hub and EMC.

We should also make a special note about the network we ran for the last event. Thanks to a little help from Cisco Systems, we were able to deliver what has been the FASTEST LAN PARTY we've ever run, with 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) running to most tables. The equipment we used was based on a Cisco Nexus 5020 switch, using a mixture of 2148 and 2248 series Fabric Extenders and Cisco 3750E and 3750G switches to deliver the fastest performing network we've ever had the pleasure of using.

Door Prizes:

Victoria University Short Course: Drummer Boy Ben
Fractal Designs Array R2 case:

Team Fortress 2:
Tunnel Snakes, each member taking home a Tt eSports Black gaming mouse.

COD4:
1st place: Fusion eSports - SteelSeries mouse
2nd place: Zenith - TT eSports mouse pads

CSS:
1st place: Okay, here's the deal. We'd REALLY like to tell people who won but since the team decided to have some fun by selecting a name unsuitable for publication in this news post, we're not going to name them - but we will say that they each won a mouse from SteelSeries.
2nd place: Sound Effects, other than selecting a name which was a bit more G-rated, won ...

Flatout 2

This is perhaps one of the most anticipated competitions from the admin team! DemonicHorse took the $150 cash prize thanks to The Hub LAN cafe.

Grid:
1st place: Dead_Man
2nd place: Cheb (who won the Tt eSports keyboard as Dead_Man was running the competition).

Poker:
Razza, Peter and Goran won 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Female Comp winners:

CS:S: Peach
Flatout 2: Om Nom Nom
Colouring Competition: Tank

See you guys next time... we'll be announcing our Christmas Extravaganza shortly...

Aaaaaand, no Starcraft, Warcraft 3 or even H.A.W.X?

I don't think they ran those competitions.
priorax
Warcraft 3 hasn't been run for ages... And I think HAWX was run, not certian though
Lord Infamous
The War3 comp was held at respawn 16...
priorax
Which was months ago... so ages... in a way
Lord Infamous
I last had a beer 12,340 second ago. such a long time

As part of the on-the-day team Sound Effects, I can tell you we won a steel series Gaming Surface. Cheers ^^.

Also, as far as i am aware, some of the fun comps weren't run due to time concerns/overworked admins, which is fair enough.
Danog
I wasn't there (no ride) and the person I told to pick up my Armagetron mouse didn't pick it up... Can I pick it up next time?
SirSquidness
We were very clear about the prize having to be collected at the previous event. Sorry!

pretty sure the css winners won the steelseries headsets, not the mice... :s

Some time between now and v19. Keep on the look out for it wink.gif

Squid, can we have some sort of big prize for the best player throughout the LAN. (Cash and a trophy?)

You could allocate a certain number of points for positions placed in each game throughout the event, (i.e):

1st = 10 points
2nd = 8 points
3rd = 6 points
4th = 4 points
5th = 3 points
6th = 2 points
7th and below = 1 point

Then tally the points up at a certain time on the Sunday (10am?) and the overall winner is decided.

Doing this would encourage people to participate in games throughout the event, rather than just leech from DC++. This could apply to both Funcomps and actual tournament matches, or whatever you see fit.

Cheers

my money is on ultimate sacrifice to win that comp!
Danog
We'll see. Keep in mind that comps may be included as well (your best score from 1 of the big 3 shooters, flatout, etc)

I call shotgun on not being the one to do the work.
