CPL Pacific Wrapup

Well, I've just got back from the airport after a long 6 days in Melbourne at the CPL Pacific event.

Just to quickly summarise, the last day was filled with some of the best gaming I've ever seen. Seriously, some of the Q3 duels that were happening were just unbelieeeeeevable. Watching SAS kicking ass and taking names in Counter-Strike was likewise awesome - the atmosphere down there in some of those later games was just intense.

In case you haven't been reading the CPL Pacific webpage, the results were as follows:

Quake 3 Duel Top 5 (full standings:

1) Fatality
2) Elan
3) Python
4) Huma (Limps)
5) Janus

Absolutely MAD PROPS and a huge well done for Queenslander Limps for playing like a demon in his games; he defeated Lobsta in an awesome match on tourney4 just after Lobsta had beated world #2 seed Polosatiy in the same level.

Counter-Strike (full standings):

1) Pantheon
2) DG
3) SAS

Sif Queensland didn't rock the house. Congrats to SAS for playing extremely well in all their matches, including some awesome comebacks and some awesome gameplay.

Congrats and bad luck to mP, the QGL qualifier winners who sent down two teams - mP2 did well throughout the tourney, but mP1 were plagued with bad luck and just other bad stuff which prevented them from really having any chance at competing on an even keel.

I'm sure there will be a lot of slaw following this event, so rather than write up everything here, I think I'll just wait and respond on a per-slaw basis.

In terms of the competitive gameplay, it was top quality; it was awesomely impressive to have the best players from around the world gathered in the same place. There were a few problems, all I'm sure will be covered quite extensively by the extremely loud focus-negative group that was in attendance, which will be fun to deal with. In terms of admin slaw, this was by far the hardest LAN event to organise and manage that any of us have ever done; a huuuuge amount of effort was put in both planning and executing the event and I think its safe to say we're all both mentally and physically exhausted from the last few days.

Overall though, despite a few hiccups, I think the event ran pretty well. Some awesome gameplay, the _best_ network I think anyone has ever seen, the best venue (those databoards owned), and the best players. Props to all from Queensland who made it down there and slapped down those Mexicans (especially those hella lame superclans, muaha). Big well done to Nats and Term for laying down the smack in the CS tourney organisation and to Electoad, Bones and Jim for their immense efforts on making the LAN run smoothly.

Watch this space (and all the other spaces that will have commentary) for more coverage on the event.

Next years event? I mean this show was pretty much run by those dedicated bunch of superheros we all know and love as the QGL admin... [I mean that in all sincerity too]

You guys definately worked harder and longer to put on something world class and deserve a bunch of credit for this stuff. Hell it wasn't *that* long ago on the old QQL spam list, that this stuff would finally happen, big awesome lans, world class players, big $ sponcers... back then it seemed impossible.

So wouldn't it be even better for next years event to be held up here, in Gods own back yard? Sif Queensland isn't the centre of the gaming universe in OZ, making and playing them and running big ass lans with them...

Just a thought...

Yeah, we all picked it up on the Thursday while setting up, but I think it got overlooked when the LAN started. At least the awesome spelling mistaekes on the marquee above the bar were fixed. (Especially Guillemot spelt "Guillenot" ;)

Ummm, you guys fogot to mention that mP Also kicked arse..

mP2 had to fight thier way into the to top 16 from the bottom, and they did it too.

And dont forget that mP had a lot to do with giving SAS a helping hand in their 3rd place. We provided much moral support and technical advice :)

hehe, EVERY Queensland clan that was at CPL-P made it into the top 16 proving that Queenslanders ROCK
