Tournaments

Let’s get down to brass tacks and see who proved themselves slightly more capable than the rest for winning the vaunted and much venerated NoxLAN tournaments! Unfortunately no one had any screen recording software, so static pictures will have to suffice.

First up is the Nidhogg tournament, with some extremely tense matches lasting almost 8 minutes! End to end action throughout especially from Jibbernuts, Chris173972, Milaneous, JayneyBoBaney, and Tigrid. The ultimate winner though was Tigrid, after seeing off all comers.

The next tournament was 2v2 Rocket League, everyone was randomly drawn pairs and then set about attempting to drive cars at an oversized football and each other. The winning pair after a simple round-robin tournament was JaneyBoBaney and Tigrid, with 4 wins out of 4.

Rocket League pros in the making

The last tournament was Trackmania Nations, which I made the mistake of winning. Haha you all suck ๐Ÿ˜‚. It was very close though, with only 0.27 seconds separating 1st and 3rd place.

  1. Nox
  2. tipro9
  3. Chris173972

For this occasion, tipro9 will be eligible for a prize.

(Note to self, do not attempt to win tournaments.)

Sorry for winning my own tournament… 

Lastly, the multistage quiz split into three sections of Guess the game, General knowledge and Game music identification, was also close with a possible maximum score of 64 points. Team Tom feat. Chris stole the win after the double points round of Game music leapfrogged them over Team Daves and Team JARS.

Prizes

Prizes are courtesy of esportrait.com, AlexFili, and my Humble Bundle addiction, and can be selected from the website prize pool. In case winners choose the same prize, give your second and third choices, or discuss in the Discord channel.

If you have won multiple competitions, please don’t be greedy! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Until next time…

Stay tuned for additional news such as a possible new venue, new attractions and better tournaments and prizes based on demand. In the meantime, tell your friends, colleagues and mortal-enemies and lets make the next LAN even better!

If you have pictures/videos/captures of the event and the games, please send them to me so I can get them uploaded into a single album. ๐Ÿคฉ

Bye for now. ๐Ÿ‘
