Back home. What a weekend. Sorry not sorry for the essay. I'm a TFTV writer after all!
RGB 2018 SHOUTOUTS
Shoutout to TheFragile and shdwpuppet for their work during the whole tournament. This was my first LAN and it ran as smoothly as it could have (at least in my inexperienced participant perspective). I'm sorry I didn't give you a handshake and hug this morning Fragile, didn't know you'd be gone when we got back. Next time! :3 Shoutout to Console for running the stream and being the first TFTV Staff member I've met in person. Wish I could've seen him work the stream live but I'll just have to watch the VODs later.
Shoutout to the rest of BLANC Esports. Will try and keep this brief ha. brian for being the PC genius he is and also the extra computer he got for msh / bear. hedge for being a wonderful person and hilarious (lightweight) drunk - and who could forget that fabulous hair oh my. nite for coming out of retirement just to play cap bitch Scout and also the shrooms which I'm sure a few people enjoyed. And of course SpaceCadet for being the awesome 39 year old gamer and teammate he is. Super glad we got to meet in person after nearly eight seasons together. I'm proud we all got to do it up on LAN. Hopefully with a full, normal lineup in the future!
Shoutout to msh because he got stranded in Boston on like Thursday trying to get to LAN from Ontario. The weather was being a real jerk. He wasn't able to head back home until earlier today I believe. Please come to (another) LAN - hopefully with not shit weather conditions - so I can give you a big hug and drink / eat a meal together.
Shoutout to bear AKA kkktookmybabyaway AKA Cronjington Magoo for stepping in as our 6th player and being a poverty goofball. His Best Buy mic was so fucking bad lmao but his Pyro gameplay was immaculate. It was great hanging out and chatting about life, TF2, whatever. Plus he only said "Cronjington Magoo" like seven times the whole weekend which was honestly less than I predicted. Shoutout to bear's Philosophy professor for rescheduling his exam so bear could join us in the weekend of degeneracy. Without him being here and brian supplying an extra setup we might have been screwed.
Shoutout to faust for driving approximately a million miles and a million hours, especially on Friday what with the disgusting storm we got on our way to the venue. He got so many people to and back from LAN safely. An upstanding individual and my pick for MVP of RGB 2018 without a doubt.
Shoutout to Billysaurus for my first LAN death on Medic being via reflect rocket thanks to his Pyro shenanigans. Gonna check my POV because I think I died with triple digit HP. Fuck you for that one, by the way. XD
Shoutout to tojo for programming the Roaming Soldier class but also being extremely chill throughout the whole weekend. Just an overall funny, down-to-earth kinda guy. We're in our Airbnb drunk and watching retarded meme videos, tojo shows up and is like "hold my beer I gotchu." Was a pleasure to meet you and hangout dude.
Shoutout to brulee for coming up to hang out with us this weekend being a good sport while we all did extremely dumb shit like watch proto memes and laugh at frag videos. Oh and watching Black Panther with me, bear, and ether despite having seen it already. What a sweetheart.
Shoutout to John Milter for having the strongest handshake on planet Earth, probably.
Shoutout to chompa for having devastating pipes and stickies that terrorized my teammates and pretty much everyone else at LAN. Hey Open, y'all better not be sleeping on this girl, for real.
Shoutout to everyone! You guys and gals were great and it was awesome to see faces to the various names in our community as well as meet new ones. I was actually battling headaches / nausea sporadically during the weekend so I apologize for not being as friendly as I should have. Nonetheless I'm glad I finally got to experience a LAN. RGB was a blast and I'm definitely attending another one in the future. Seeyou at Rewind III and / or RGB 3. For those still driving, get back safe. Rest up and God Bless.
