Midwinter LAN Results
[img_assist|nid=563|title=Rangas Unreal Tattoo|desc=|link=node|align=left|width=150|height=113]The midwinter LAN was chilly but well attended with the usual crowd there plus some new people. A good number of games were played early on before people started getting serious with Unreal Tournament 2004. In fact so serious, one player even had a UT tattoo. Check out Ranga's back tattoo.
The round robin tournament was played as 10 minute maps with the loser picking the maps. Once one team was 2 maps in front that was a win. If they got to 4-4 it was a sudden death play off. From there we were left with 2 teams, the Four Misfits and the Patch Queens in 1st and 2nd. The final was played hard with a first map of Acid Pipes win to the Patch Queens. This was followed up with a Face Classic CTF match that went into over time and was eventually called a draw with no score. Celtic Dragons was played next and the Four Misfits scored a singe flag and so won the tournament.

Thanks a lot Matt! Please be sure to check out his website TerraMedia and thank him as well.
Part way through the night we played an Invasion in order to locate a top gun contender in the shooter category. We will be running a racing and strategy category later in the year. Looks like Nightshade has some competition at last. Faz and 007 both beat him. Lets see how they go in the next two events.
All in all a fun night.
