This was my first lan so I’ve got a bunch of shoutouts.
First shout out is to my teammates boybill and saga for traveling from so far that we could show the community what our team has to offer in a competitive setting.
Second of all shout out to jay, gritoma and exerb for hanging out and being really great teammates with us at our first lan.
Shoutout to andrew, It was awesome after all these years to not only meet you, but get to pugscrim with you as well as compete against you at lan. An awesome thing to experience.
Shoutout to my man Sigh, I’ve known you for so long and meeting you at lan just hit me with nostalgia of all the dumb shit we used to do together in mumble. Watching you compete made me regret not continuing to play this game all these years. Hopefully this isn’t the last time we meet one another.
Shoutout to the boys, Brush, entropy, Bobby, bubbzi, Freddo, snarken, Bryaun, Yall honestly made the lan for me and the boys. We were a bit disappointed no one was urgently looking to pug or scrim and even though we were a bit better than you guys, you were all itching to keep scrimming us and it made all of our experiences all the more worthwhile. Playing some pugs after the tourney with you and sigh really made my weekend, it was a pleasure gaming and meeting all of y’all.
Shoutout Pablo/TheFridge, thanks for taking some time out of your night to talk to me and boybill about some tf2 during the finals. Really made my night and was so great to meet you.
Also Yerb, Same sentiment, I introduced myself to you as the golden cap of finals started and you were more than happy to spitball tf2 with me as we watched, may have meant a little to you but made my night.
Everyone else: it was so nice seeing all your faces and having the chance to introduce myself to the players I have the privilege of sharing my passion for this game with. Meeting the people I get to play with game with on a nightly basis was honestly so cool. The community we have is truly something special. I have so many good things to say about this lan and can’t wait to make it to the next one.
Finally, thanks to everyone who made this lan possible for all of us to enjoy. Your work truly pays off in a big way.
