Mage Con Spring is coming up April 22-24th. As usual well have a LAN held over the course of the 3-day event. This year, Corsair, Nvidia, and Bawls are helping to sponsor the event with a few local vendors Advanced Computers and EZ-Drop as well. Website gives a rough idea wha tis currently planned. As this is the first year of pursuing sponsorship and being that games have hit a tech gap for some players with games, only a select games are certain but there is plenty of open options pending having the machines to run such games. The Forgotten Hope Tournament & Warcraft III tournaments will be the main events. There will be at least three types of FH Tournaments that are under discussion now. Prizes for FH will be from the materials sent by the sponsors with the main prizes being choice of a Corgi Die-case model.
We have 10 availible to give away.
5 Axis; 2 Tiger 1s (diff model each), 1 Panther, 1 BF-109, and 1 FW-190.
5 Allied; 1 Cromwell, 1 Churchill, 1 Sherman, 1 Spitfire, 1 Mustang
The idea being during one tourney, the top 3 finishers will get one of the Tanks. 1st place getting 1st choice.. 2nd getting next..and then 3rd..
There will also be an “Aces” Tourney.. where the top 2 finishers of either side will follow the same with the planes.. were currently looking into getting possibly 2 more planes to even it out..
And Overall tournament will be held in a game TBA.. possibly FH.. that we will give away Corsair 1 Gig 512×2 PC3200XL with programmable LED Display. This is the same RAM my machine currently runs with.. minus the LED.. and its matched pair runs flawlessly.. Im also forfeiting my eligibility to win this prize no matter what tournament its held in for fairness, as this was provided thanks to Corsair.
There are also Case badges for Nvidia and Corsair, various stickers, Hats from Corsair, Shirts from Nvidia, 4 posters from Nvidia, Pens and keychains from Corsair. Local vendors are also donating items but as to what they are we dont know at this time.
The all-weekend pass is 25 at the door, 20 if you pre-reg, daily passes are also availible as listed on the website. There will also be a one-time fee for the tourneys involving the larger prizes, the manager is deciding what would be fair in those regards as of now. However there will be plenty of Open Gaming going on, and anyone can play and take part in many of the events going on. Questions, Suggestions Comments I can be reached via PM.
