Talk about Warfactory 2008:
Several attendees had much to say about our event. Here are a few comments …
“Chance” Lacina of Team EG – I just want to quickly thank everyone who made WarFactory possible for running such a fun event. Thanks a lot to BenQ for the slick monitors and cash they gave away for the Quake tournament! Thanks to Dave Derington, Chris Moncivalles, and Joe “nineX” Szymkowicz. Without them it wouldn’t have been much of a tournament.
Also thanks as always to our EG sponsors Intel, Extreme GameFaces for helping us grow the e-Sports scene and Razer for their awesome new mouse the “Salmosa“.
Shane “Rapha” Hendrixson of Sk Gaming – I’d like to thank Warfactory for running a successful Quake 3 tournament. Even though it was small compared to most LAN tournaments I’ve been to, Warfactory ran it as if they had everything the big tourney organizations have had. Everything was done on time and on schedule and they did their best to make sure the players had everything taken care of. If they get the proper backing by sponsors, they have the potential to run some great tournaments that people will look forward to playing in year after year. Again thanks for running the tournament and keep up the great work.
Jarod Reisin, President of the AGP Tour – On behalf of the AGP and the community, I’d like to thank the staff of Warfactory and those that made the Quake 3 tournament take place especially Dave Derington and Chris Moncivalles. I’d like to thank BenQ and Dust Off for supporting the event. Such support turns a small LAN into a serious tournament and we all appreciate your support. I’d like to thank Chance and Shane for attending the event and staying supportive of Quake tournaments no matter how small. I’d also like to thank Sk.Gaming and Team EG, and their supporting sponsors, for sending their players to the event. No matter how small a tournament is, having one in a professional atmosphere with decent prizes proves the fact that this sport will never die. Long live FPS 1v1!
