Well its 1:30am, theres nothing to eat, water is running low and there is no bawls in sight. we might have to resort to canabalism. Seriously this is my first BYOC at Quakecon and I gotta say im not impressed so far, maybe the morning will bring better times, but im going to have to fight thru the night since I have no where to sleep.

at about 5:30 or so they announced a small quake4 tournament for 16 people. i'm not sure what the prizes were, but there were several. me, rofl-mic-lofl and his friend were of the last 4 in line, so we got free t-shirts :D

5:36pm they have a thing where every couple hours they call two names and they compete 1-on-1 for a $1000, its pretty nerve wrecking waiting for them to announce the names but its pretty exciting!

8/4/[email protected]:42pm well today they had the finals for the q4 2v2 and some dudes walked away with 15,000 dollars and the losers got 7,000 dollars. I got shwag (T-shirts, pens, glowing buttons, etc) and I bought a 7800GT for 100 bucks off a guy who needed to sell his comp to fix his van so her can get to work at 9am tomorrow morning that sucks for him but I did my part to help lol. Well its been a great weekend so far and we will see what the night brings, Dragon Slayer got the coolest thing of the 3 of us she got a big ass nvidia sign, its awesome but ultimatley useless as far as performance goes lol

Apop, WICKEDLD9, and me (Illuminati) all ended up cancelling our flight and reservations because it was decided that due to lack of corporate support, QuakeCon (this year) was not in LR's best interest for the amount of time and money that would have been spent... Nate (Apop) already posted about this.

It was a shame that we had to cancel at the last minute because we were all really looking forward to the event!
